Question about Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Receiver
My GPS was dead and I cleaned the contacts and tried replugging into the main and USB - nothing. I also tried the soft reset (press power and mode at same time) - nothing. At ramdom it started charging one time but then stopped. I tried again, nothing. Then i looked on this site and found others with same problem. I took advise from Highfly Solution #6 above and it worked! Put the unit back in the craddle and press HARD on the top where it says Forerunner. Hopefully your unit will start to charge again. Obviously it's defective and if this many people are having a problem then it's a design flaw. As soon as mine has some juice enough to download i am going to sync and then return/exchange the unit at REI or contact Garmin...or rather I am going to race the Philadelphia Tri tomorrow and then return the unit :-)
Glad to hear I was able to help. I keep an eye on the posts here and so many are having the same issues. Most certainly a design flaw!
