Hi, I had the same problem. The above link http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=3741 was helping at my Computer at home. But how weird is it, that the device is only working with an old software version, and not the one recommended by garmin? The PC in my office does not recognize the GPS device. I am a programmer myself, and I know that it is difficult to produce high quality software. But the stuff garmin is presenting to its customers really sucks!!!

Unsuccesful installation firmware 2.30 to 2.50


I had a similar problem. After a few attempts I was able to update the firmware to version 2.50. This is what I did:
1. Close the ANT Agent application by right clicking on the icon next to the clock and selecting Exit.
2. Reset the Forerunner 405. Mine was frozen on the LOADER screen. I held both buttons for a few seconds and released them when the rebooting process started.
3. Open the ANT Agent application and then go to the GARMIN webpage to download the update. Make sure you have the latest ANT Agent version.
4. The update process started and ended in about 2 minutes. Then it started again and lasted anothe 9 minutes.
5. The watch reboots with the new firmware version but retains all data amd customs settings.
Good luck.

GPS problems wit a Garmin Forerunner 405


The instructions say touch and hold GPS and to go outside away from tall buildings and to remain stationary for several minutes. Not really sure what their definition of several minutes is guess thats their way of saying "sit still for as long as it takes." If that doesnt work I would get in touch with Garmin. 1-800-800-1020

Cant install Garmin Connect software


reboot the computer in safe mode. (HIT F8 during the startup) then after the computer loads put the ANT stick in the USB slot and it will then be recognized.

remove it and then reboot normally. Now simply reinsert the ANT stick after starting the ANT agent.

worked like a charm

enjoy

MY Garmin 405 wont download data. It make the connection and gets to the tarnsfer point then "transfer failed. I've one route downloaded last week but none since. I tried: resetting both...


I got the same issue and it was because of a software update to ANT+ agent being not compatible with the 405.
here is what I got from Garmin Support.
This solved my problem:
There is currently an issue that has been identified with the latest
version of the ANT agent where it will not transfer data to the computer
from a 405cx. To resolve this please follow these steps
1. If the device has paired it will need to be removed. Right Click on
the ANT agent, select Device Settings then click Remove Device.
2. Right Click the ANT agent and select Exit to close the ANT agent
3. Go to the Control Panel, select Add / Remove Programs and uninstall
the ANT agent.
4. Reboot the computer
5. Download the previous version of the ANT agent from http://www8.garmin.com/software/GarminANTAgent_221.exe
Run this file once it has downloaded
7. Turn on the pairing on the watch ? to do this go to Menu > Settings
> ANT+ > Computer > Pairing (on).
8. Enable pairing on the computer - right click on the ANT agent icon
and select Pair With New Devices > Enabled (this may already be enabled)
The Forerunner and computer should now pair, please be aware that it can
take several minutes for the computer to find the watch.
