Used my garmin edge 305 today on the ride, it worked fine, powered off after the ride. Got home turned on to review my stats and then powered off and went to upload and wouldn't upload, so tried to turn it...


Edge 205 or 305 often crash, then impossible to power on again.

Here is the way to reset the Garmin edge :

Soft reset : hold mode and lap/reset buttons for 10 seconds
Hard reset : device should be powered down, hold start and mode buttons for 3 seconds then pulse press the lap/reset button.

After soft reset, you need to hold start button for up to 10 secs before it starts.

After hard reset, you will loose all your data, including profiles.

The edge 305 unit does not answer to hard and soft reset command


Just to be sure ...

Soft reset : hold mode and lap/reset buttons for 10 seconds
Hard reset : device should be powered down, hold start and mode buttons for 3 seconds then pulse press the lap/reset button.

Now if this does not work, you should check battery. Does the device charge when plugged on PC ?
If it does not, either battery is out of order or the contacts inside the device re broken. This may happen if device is used in continuous vibrating environment like mountain bike.

Changing battery or fixing contacts issue is explained there :

My Edge 305s GPS is not working. Everything else runs perfectly fine, it just will not acquire any satellites. I tried a soft reset. It won't let me hard reset though.

Hard reset is not very easy, so follow carefully instructions above.

Now simple advice, did you check in your parameters that the GPS transceiver is turned on ?
There is a mode with GPS off, don't ask why ...
Refer to your manual to find the menu.

My garmin 305 edge won't turn on. I had it for about 2 years.


Try soft reset first then hard reset if not solving.
Soft reset : hold lap/reset and mode key for some seconds
hard reset : hold on/off and mode, then pulse on lap/reset.

after soft reset, hold start button for 10 secs before device starts again.

My Edge 305 will come on; however, when I press mode, it goes off. also, the start button will not work.


maybe the lap/reset button is continuously pressed. As pressing both mode and lap/reset performs soft reset.
Make sure the lap is not dusty ...

Otherwise try hard reset holding mode and start then pulse on lap/reset. all data will be lost but it makes it start correctly

My unit is dead and won't turn on. I tried holding lap and mode then hitting power but nothing! Seems like the lap and mode buttons are frozen and won't release down when pushed. Please help!


Try this first :
Hold Lap and mode for 10 seconds or more, then release and wait ten other seconds.
Then hold start button for 10 seconds, device should start.
