Batteries must be charged completely when they are new or they will never hold a charge right!
I'm assuming you never fully charged them when new and so they will never hold much of a charge!
The Solution is to replace the battery or batteries and charge properly (overnight or at least 8hrs).
I recommend Radio Shack for this!

My nuvi 1450 won't turn on and the garmin website updater won't reconize it hooked up to my computer even my computer won't reconize it.


I had the same problem with mine and got it working by doing the following while on the phone to Garmin. Plug your charger cord into the device and your computer (do not use a laptop, you need the higher current from a desktop for this). Hold the power button down for as long as it takes for the Garmin logo to display, this could be as much as 1 minute. As soon as the image shows on the screen, release the power button. If your Garmin isn't completely shot you will see it boot up.
If you have the Garmin Web Updater program on your computer, run it and update the operating system software to insure you have the latest greatest from Garmin. Once that is done, update your XML data files - they'll be on the list of updates if you need them. Once those are done you can update any voice or language files you'd like.
Lastly, leave your GPS plugged in at least an hour or two to give it a charge. Overnight would be better to insure your battery is really well powered up.
At this point your Garmin should function normally. The Garmin tech I spoke with told me some units start acting funky when the battery runs down too low and if it's REALLY dead it won't even take a charge or power up when you hook up your charger cord. Try holding the power button for as long as it takes to get a spark & you should be on your way. If not, call Garmin's support number for your locale & they're do their best to get you back up & running again.
Cheers, Jeff

My garmin was automaticly flashing differnt modes continously. Now it won,t turn on at all.


whoa, mine just starting doing that too. Today on a run it just started flashing through the 3 screens and I couldn't turn it off. It kept logging the run so I kept going. Then it would stop flashing sometimes during the run and I'd press the up or down arrow and it'd start flashing again. Now it's in the cradle and I can't sync it up but the battery is charging. Any ideas how to fix this?

Uploading multiple days of runs to Garmin Training Center


Yes it will hold ALL you runs AND keep them seperate. What you need to do at the end of each run just before you turn it off hit and "hold" the Lap button (reset button). It takes a second but you should see it say reset in 3-2-1. Keep holding untill the process is finished. What this does is end your run and saves it in the watch. When you start your watch the next time it will start a new run when you hit start. By doing this it will keep everything sorted when you down load. In the software you will see one enty with a + sign beside it. The first entry you see is the total of the week. If you hit the + you will see each individual run.

Hope this helps.

What you would do is, under where the model code sticker is under is the reset button. remove the sticker and hold down the reset button for 10 seconds at the same time hold the power button towards the left.

Shuts off, won't charge battery


Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

I have the forerunner 305 - it is not taking a charge and won't turn on??? I have only used it 4 or 5 times


Plug in the garmin to the wall.
Hold down the reset and mode buttons for 3 seconds.
Try to turn it on or look for the "charing in process" words.

Wont turn on


I faced the same problem.
Here is the detailed answer I received from Garmin support. It worked for me!

Please put the 305 on to charge. If the screen is blank, press and hold the Mode button and then press the Lap/reset button as well and hold them both for 2 or 3 seconds. After a few seconds you should see the "battery charging in progress" message. Then leave it to charge for 30 mins. While it is charging, download your training history to your PC.

Once it has charged for a while. Remove it from the charger and switch the unit off.

Press and hold the Mode button and then press the Lap/reset button as well and hold them both for 2 or 3 seconds.

Then press and hold the Mode button again and this time also press and hold the Power button. The unit should switch on and have a message on the screen saying ?Do you really wish to erase all user data?. Select YES and press enter. The unit will reboot and ask you some questions including if you have a heart rate and cadence sensor.

I then asked them again:

Before I do the 2nd step which resets the data, will it erase only the training data (tracks etc.), or also all the other user data like profile and such?
If yes, are these can be backed up too?

Why is the complete reset required if the Edge is back to life? Do you suspect some data corruption or inconsistency?

And they replied:

The complete reset is required because this could occur again in a few days time. The complete reset will wipe everything including history, workouts, courses, user profile, data field settings and almanac data.

The first time you connect the GPS to your PC after doing the reset you will get a message saying that the profile on the device is different from the profile in the program. You will need to choose to keep the profile in the program which will then transfer your user profile back into the GPS from Training Center.
