Question about Garmin Forerunner 205 GPS Receiver
My forerunner 205 will no longer transfer data to my cpu. It will charge through the usb port for some reason though. I tried upgrading the software. Any tips?
I just got off the phone with garmin tech. She helped me solve the problem. Here are the steps.
1. Go to http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00466-00
2. Download "Forerunner 205 Ver. 2.80 as of Nov 12, 2007", unzip it, and browse to the folder you unzip the files to.
3. Make sure your Forerunner is connected to your computer and turn it on. Drag file "048401000280.rgn" and drop it on "Updater.exe". A screen will pop up, select "USB" then click OK. Then wait till the process completes.
4. Go to the website on Step 1 and download "Training Center For Windows Ver. 3.3.4 as of Feb 29, 2008". Install it.
5. Run Training Center. At this point, I am able to send/receive data to my Forerunner.
Hope this helps!
