SOURCE: Garmin forerunner 305 won't come on.

My wife's was always powering off during runs. Then it would not power on at all. There was a connection inside that wasn't making contact. But first First try cleaning the 4 brass connection tabs on the watch and check your charger to make sure the tabs are raised and not squished. Second try to reset the unit. Hit mode reset and power buttons all at the same time. Hold these for 3 seconds and then release. If these do not work here is what I did. There are no screws holding the unit together. I used a exacto blade to very carefully pry the unit apart along the side seam. It's not easy to do. Be very cautious and gentle. Work the thickness of the blade into the joint to gently wedge apart. You are not trying to remove material! Once apart you will see some brass fingers that make a connection between the upper and lower part of the unit. This is where the problem was with my wife's 305. I gently raised these tabs to make a better connection, It's been working ever since. I didn't try it before but try pressing very hard on the unit where it says Forerunner 305. The case is very hard so it might not work. But if it powers up when pushing you found your problem. Hope this helps.Here is a link I found on opening a 205 (Same process)http://ctorunner.googlepages.com/dismantleforerunner205 To put the unit back together use Automotive silicon/gasket maker.Use a tooth pick to put a VERY small amount of silicon around the entire seam. Put the two half's together and wrap tightly with electrical tape. Test the unit immediately to see if it powers on and off. If it does not open it back up and raise the small prongs more that make the connection from the bottom half to the top half. If any silicon squishes out the sides wipe with water and a rag.Let the unit sit over night. In the morning remove the tape.

I got the same issue and it was because of a software update to ANT+ agent being not compatible with the 405.

Garmin offer new maps, the majority in different formats such as online downloads, pre-loaded SD cards, or on DVD.

However, these are pretty costly for all they are worth. For the same price as a map, you could easily buy a brand new device with full EU maps.

SOURCE: Transfer "favorites" from Garmin Nuvi 660 to 765T

I had the same problem. I called Garmin and the lady said if I had the software Map Source or something, that can do the trick, but the funny thing is you have to buy the software with Map Updates, or you get the software when you buy a new unit, and register the unit within 60 days of first satellite reception. Though I searched internet and someone said to copy a certain file/folder or I'd rather just copy the whole GPS folders and that might do the trick. You are right, this is a pain in the rear end.

My daughter locked her tablet by using the wrong pattern 1 to many times.. Can you please advise how to reset the tablet.I have no Network Connection as the Wi Fi has been turned off.


You are going to have to hard reset your tablet. Typically, if you long press the volume up and power button at the same time. Without getting into details, visit Youtube and there are videos that walk you through the hard reset. Here is one that might help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJXFAdh7UJg

Alarm Lock Trillogy DL2800 and DL Windows Program.


If you can load DL windows onto a laptop instead of a PC, you can program directly to each lock using a AL-PC12 cable which connects from a 9-pin serial com port on your computer, to the 2-pin banana plug on the lock.(be sure to observe polarity). Cable is available from Alarm Lock. Some very useful downloads and information is available on their website - www.alarmlock.com
I hope this helps!

NO file transfers are working!


Try deleting the partnership in ActiveSync on the PC, and then create a new partnership. I saw this problem, when I connected the first time to a PC. I tried connecting to a second PC, and had no problem. When I went back to the first, it required that I create a new partnership, and no problem with the connection.
