If soft reset did not solve, try hard reset, you'll loose all data and configuration, but this fixes most of the issues after :
device off, hold mode and start for 10seconds, then pulse on lap/reset, you should be asked to confirm loss of data.

I will be riding a 340km 24 hr mtb stage race consisting of 6 stages in dec. How do I manage charging of my Garmin Edge 305 over what will be some 18hrs of riding with short breaks between stages?


Bring a portable PC device plus your USB cable, and a charged battery on your PC, Edge will charge when connected to PC via USB.
Any other powered USB source would also help charging.

However for a 24 hours trip, it is worth downloading your races on the PC and clearing memory, as otherwise memory will get full and waypoints will stop register.

We bought a new garmin 705 and the speed records but not the distance or other features


The Garmin Edge requires that you press the start/stop button to record any data.
1. Before you start riding, press the start/stop button to begin recording.
2. Once you have finished riding, press start/stop button to end recording.
3. Create an account on connect.garmin.com and plug your unit in using the supplied USB cable and download your ride to view details on your cycling session.

My Edge 305 will sometimes just stop recording data during a ride. I can restart it by stopping/restarting the timer. but I end up losing data for parts of my ride. Any knows fix for this?


2 possible reasons : either your device memory is full.
If so then erasing all old rides in history should solve it, unless your last ride is too long.
You can also optimize the recording by selecting automatic waypoint recording (optimized) in the record option (see manual).

If all this does not solve, then most probably your memory is corrupted then only hard reset will solve (loosing all user data) :

Hold lode and start key for 10 seconds. Keep holding and pulse press lap/reset button. You'll get a screen asking for confirmation, confirm.

Lost History


May not be linked to date of ride. Device has a limited memory, so you have to erase history when long rides, or frequent rides.
When memory is full, device is managing by erasing older data waypoints.

You may also activate intelligent recording of waypoints, that calculates waypoints record when direction or speed changes. This optimizes memory usage.

Date not changing


After my ride I needed to stop the timer and reset the device. Then connect to the computer and download the history. It appears that that information I was downloading was from a previous ride.

Garmin Edge 305 missing gps tracking information


Do you get the graphs for the most recent rides OK, but not the first ones on your trip?

If so, the memory is full. The Edge 305 will hold around 15 - 20 hours of cycling if you use the "smart recording" mode - any more and it starts to overwrite earlier trips (though the summary info in "History" is preserved). The only way around this is to download rides to a PC regularly (not really an option if you are away from a computer!).
