I had exactly the same problem. i looked through this site and found some advice that said to hold both buttons (quit/enter) for 7-10 seconds, which resets, but apparently doesn't wipe your info - happy days :)

Keeps beeping and displaying approaching turn


The "Approaching Turn" message is coming from an active navigation on your device. To turn it off, press and hold on the left side of the bezel (GPS), then press the lap/reset/quit key to exit the compass screen. You should then be in the GPS menu. There should be an item in this menu titled "Stop XXXX" where XXXX is "Navigating", or "Back to Start", or something like that. Select that option, and it should stop the navigation, and eliminate the "Approaching Turn" messages.

My Garmin Forerunner 405 is completely locked up.


In regards to the locked up Garmin: Press and hold BOTH side buttons at the same time until the unit goes blank. Once released, it should be reset...... This should not remove any history or settings.

Unsuccesful installation firmware 2.30 to 2.50


I had a similar problem. After a few attempts I was able to update the firmware to version 2.50. This is what I did:
1. Close the ANT Agent application by right clicking on the icon next to the clock and selecting Exit.
2. Reset the Forerunner 405. Mine was frozen on the LOADER screen. I held both buttons for a few seconds and released them when the rebooting process started.
3. Open the ANT Agent application and then go to the GARMIN webpage to download the update. Make sure you have the latest ANT Agent version.
4. The update process started and ended in about 2 minutes. Then it started again and lasted anothe 9 minutes.
5. The watch reboots with the new firmware version but retains all data amd customs settings.
Good luck.

Hi

I had a similar problem, the screen lock while trying to turn GPS on. Tried all butttons and bezel operations, left it charging overnight - no joy. Eventually pressed and held both buttons and after about 30 secs (did not time it but was about that) it restarted.

Good luck!
