SOURCE: GARMIN 305 Forerunner wont transfer data to PC

For Pc users:

Go to Garmin website Updates & Downloads, Training Centre for Windows software version 3.4.1, click on download.

I previously deleted all saved couses on Training Centre, but don't know if this is relevant.

SOURCE: Forerunner 305 won't charge

Had the same problem. Turned out I only *thought* it was the cradle and/or cable being finicky. Actually, the problem was one of the four contact points on the back of the 305 had oxidized and if all 4 don't make good contact with the cradle, it won't charge. Apparently, manipulating the cable only coincidentally helped, if/when it did help, perhaps by subtly shifting the contact point so that a less oxidized part made contact.
Anyway, rubbing the contact points with a pencil eraser cleans them enough to get a good charge. I've had to break out the eraser every 2-4 weeks.

Will it start up whilst in the cradle, charging?

Mine did, but will not charge up off the cradle. Turned out to be a duff battery/connections due to water getting into the device!

SOURCE: My Garmin forerunner 305 will not turn on.

I have had the same problem. To fix it, I simultaneously hold down the "mode" and "reset" buttons for about 10 seconds. After releasing the buttons I power it up as normal. This has worked both times it has happened, and I got this fix from the Garmin website. My mileage totals are still in the history.

How do I get my radio to work after I changed my battery. I have the radio code. It is a 2004 Suzuki forenza


Hello there

I found this in a suzuki forum

After connecting the audio security system to the battery, "CODE" will flash on the display.
Enter the proper security number into the unit, using the preset buttons No. 1 through 8.
For example, if the security number is "1234":
Press the preset button No. 1. "CODE" will disappear and "1 --- " will appear on the display.
Press the preset button No. 2, and "12 -- " will appear.
Press the preset button No. 3, and "123- " will appear.
Press the preset button No. 4, and "1234" will appear and flash three times.
The audio system will function and will transfer to the radio. If the incorrect security number is XXXXX into the unit, "Err" will appear followed by "CODE" and there will be several audible beeps. If this happens, repeat the security entering procedure beginning with Step 2.

Hope this helps.
If code doesnt work then it is dealer, sorry.

When I go to make the settings - as per manual it comes up P1 3:20, but when I press the 'menu' button nothing seems to happen. I expected to see P2, P3 etc so my white bread (P1) is terrific


Sometimes the little buttons underneath are not centered properly. Try pushing around the edges of the "menu" selector button your machine makes a "beep" sound" If you never feel the button move under your finger followed by the "beep" sound then your selector menu button may be broken.

Motorola talkabout t5710s won't recieve


Hi,

The question I would ask is:

How close are the two radios to each other when you contact from one to the other?

A distance between the two radios of about 10-15ft, preferably more is desirable to achieve audible results, having the closer than 10ft, causes one to cancel the other out, so you either hear static, feedback or nothing.

Try 15ft of more distance between radios and see what happens.

Pls feel free to post the results here on the two way radio forum, as I'm interested to find out what happens.

Cheers, Peter@FixYa Team

Prius start up beeps


  • Power on the car to IG-ON or READY. IG-ON will do for this purpose.
  • Using the Trip/ODO button, set the Trip/ODO display to ODO - not Trip A or Trip B
  • Power off the car.
  • Now power the car to READY (brake on). This is required so that step 6 works correctly.
  • Immediately, within 6 seconds of powering on, press and hold the Trip/ODO button for 20 seconds or more. Do not release, just hold it for 20 seconds.
  • Then WHILE STILL HOLDING ODO button, shift the "gear" selector from Park to R, then press the Park button. Now release the Trip/ODO button.
  • If the last step was successful, b on or b off should be displayed in the location where the Trip Odometer or Odometer is normally displayed. b on is beep on, and b off is beep off.
  • Press the Trip/ODO button to toggle the mode to the one you want.
  • Now power the car off to exit the toggle mode.
  • Power the car on to READY and confirm the reverse beep status by shifting to R. The beep should not be audible if b off was selected, and should be audible if b on was selected.

    How do I set the clock


    Set Clock
    Press and hold the HR or MN button until an audible beep indicates the time set mode has been entered. Once the beep is heard, the time can be set by tapping each button to incrementally adjust the time. Holding down each button will rapidly change the time.

    I have a Stoves 900EM electric oven and want to change the timer sound. I have lost the manual and can't work out how to do this


    If it is like my gas oven, press the - button until it beeps, without pressing the function button first. Then press - again and it will change each time. Stop when it makes a noise you like, or just pick the only audible one, which is the default.

    My Garmin Forerunner 305 quit working at mile 15-ish during my 26.2-mile journey. There was a faint sound but the screen was blank. It doesn't seem to charge. I tried soft reboot by pressing on the MODE...


    Try hard reset.

    Hold mode + start for ten seconds (device off beforehand). Keep holding then pulse push lap/reset button.

    You get a screen asking to return to default settings. You will loose all your data, but device should work then
