Question about Garmin EDGE 705

1 Answer

Garmin Edge 705 (just over 1 year old). Previously connected to computer fine (Found 2 removable drives when connected), and able to upload history etc, however now refuses to connect. When plugging in the Garmin, windows finds the additional SD card in the Garmin Edge, but claims the built in "disk" needs formatting. Have tried uninstall and reinstall of software, but no good.

Your disk might be corrupted. May be the only solution is to format, with all data lost.
Otherwise try to plugg another SD in Garmin, and see result.

Be carefull that when removing (disconnect) a SD device, it must be ejected properly, otherwise it may be corrupted if a write operation is ongoing.

Garmin 705 - device not found by Training Center


Garmin has moved everything to Garmin Connect. Depending on your device, Training Center may or may not be supported anymore. You can go to the link to read more on Garmin Connect. Also, Garmin now uses Garmin Express to sync and update devices. I'll attach the link. https://www.garmin.com/en-US/software/express

Hello, I own Garmin edge 705 I cannot turn it on when plugged to charger display shows battery icon close to empty (2 pixel line) and no charging is happening at all when connected to computer via...


Sounds like your battery has gone bad to me. I also own a garmin. I would suggest you contact garmin for repairs. You can go to their web site at www.garmin.com go to the top of the page where it says My garmin and log in to your account. If you don't have one then sign up for one its free. Then contact technical support either by email or by phone to get your unit repaired.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a YES on the web page you just received my response on. Thank you

Cannot unlock the maps in my garminedge 705. When i turn unit on message comes up cannot unlock maps


Information on unlocking garmin maps can be found at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

There's more information there than you need since the article is about garmin nuvi satnavs that display a message "No detailed maps found that support routing" but part of the article deals with locked maps. The principle is the same for the garmin Edge but you'll need to skip to the part that deals with unlocking maps.

I have a garmin edge 705. Every week I ride the same course. When I compare the graph of this same course they do not coincide. The starting point elevation is not the same aldo I always start at the same...


The reason is linked to startup of the device probably. I have same issue.

2 ways to improve :
1/ Startup your device
You need to startup device, and wait automatic change of the screen to the ride mode, from the sattellite search screen.
You also can check you have more than 4 sattellites before starting a ride. Altitude can only be computed when at least 4 sattellites are synchronized. So start your device in the open air, not indoor, nor close to a building.
Garmin devices start automatically and have probably a smoothing function that make altitude converge to the reality slowly from a started erroneous capture.

2/ Upload your ride on Garmin connect site, then apply altitude fix algorithm proposed. This algorithm will fix the altitude of your waypoints, both fixing pure altitude start issue, and also fixing denivellation computation, which is erroneous because of cumulation of errors.

Hope this helps

Will the garmin edge 705 provide/ be able to produce a power watt measure during outdoor rides and what do i need to purchase to be able to get this information?


The 705 comes in multiple versions from basic that will give you heart rate to a team garmin version that has the cadence, speed, calories, etc. As for power meters the 705 is 3rd party compatible to show you watt measurements.
The following third-party ANT+Sport-enabled power meters are compatible with the Edge 705:
  • iBike
  • PowerTap
  • Quark
  • SRM

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.
