You need to check your settings. The GPS should only be active when the watch is in timer mode. Once the timer is stopped it is designed to go into time mode after a set period. Once in time mode the battery should last at least 2 weeks (you should be getting about 8 hours of training time). It might be that your unit is faulty.

I just find it unbelievable that there is no off button on this watch. I dont want to use it as an everyday watch..its too big and ugly for that.Also you have to remember to turn off the gps as it will drain the watch overnight.You have to switch the gps on every time you do a run. I simple on and off button is all that is needed.It is just a matter of turning it on when you go for a run and you are ready to go. Same with all 'latest ' products..they give you the improvement over the last model but give you a downside...which will probably be corrected on the next incarnation....very clever marketing.!

I am having this problem as well. I rang Garmin support and they were really unhelpful. I fully charged my new Garmin last week and did a 40 mins run. I then didn't use it till last night and it ran out of battery after 22 mins! I didn't switch any GPS on/off manually. I assumed the GPS switched off after you stopped the workout. Is this not the case? How do you switch off the GPS manually if so. Seems a bit stupid you have to stop everything manually.

    Hi Randomah,

    Garmin support said I need to manually switch off my GPS signal after using it. So the timer mode doesn't matter, you need to switch it off after every workout. Seems very odd.

I still prefer my old garmin - you can turn it off and it works just great. Got the new one and held onto it for over a year before using it this weekend. Same problem as listed above with the battery running completely out. No solutions from me, just more venting.

I have a garmin nuvi and the cable that you put into your cigarette lighter will not work. I changed the fuse and it still will not keep the unit charged. I can charge it on my computer with a usb cable....


Do you see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph? This indicates that its charging. If it's under warranty, please contact Garmin on their website. www.garmin.com and call them. No need to worry about this if its under warranty. Send them your charger too.

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
