Forerunner 305 will not charge. Connection seems like it's not making between cradle and unit. If i wiggle it, sometimes it will briefly connect


Try cleaning the contacts on the back of the Garmin with an eraser then wipe the contacts clean on the Garmin and on the docking cradle with a rag dipped in methylated spirit or isopropyl alcohol.

You can soft reset or hard reset the device. Hard reset deletes all data.

My Garmin forerunner 305 recently got immersed in


I have read in some other posts about the unit only working while being plugged into a USB port. My guess is that the battery is in fact shot and the unit will only run off the USB port while plugged in. Submersing in water is not a good idea. On the back of the unit there are some small holes for the speaker. These speakers corrode from sweat and eventually quit.

Garmin 305 wont power on, wont charge on cradle


Same thing happened to mine. Put the unit in the cradle (just like you are going to recharge it) and press the reset and mode button at the same time for 3 seconds. This will "wake" the unit up.

Forerunner 305 won't charge


Question: My Edge or Forerunner 205/305 won't power on. Is there a soft reset that I can do?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From the Garmin web site.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Answer: If a Forerunner or Edge 205/305 is unable to power on, a soft reset can be performed to un-freeze it. This will not erase any user data and is most effective if the device is connected to the computer while performing the reset.
To reset the Forerunner or Edge 205/305:
  1. Connect the device to the computer using the USB cable
  2. Press and hold the mode and reset (lap) buttons together for 10 seconds
  3. Release and wait for 3 seconds
  4. There should be some indication of battery charging (either Finished or In Process)
  5. Power the device on while keeping it connected to the computer
In addition, please make sure that the device has the latest software version

Garmin Forerunner 205 won't power up


Awesome! MODE + RESET works!

I woke up this morning and found I had a charger death again. It happened two years ago, and I couldn't remember what I did to fix it then.
