The Garmin Edge series rely on GPS to track your location from point A to point B thereby calculating your speed and distance. Its no different from any other GPS unit which require a clear view of the sky. It does not sense wheel movement, so using any GPS on a trainer will show no movement and using it indoors will give you a bad signal. The sensor on the crank used on the Edge 705 is only for cadence and not speed.

My Kinetic trainer increases resistance when I increase speed. How can I maximize resistance at low cadence of say 60 rpm?


You can't with this type of trainer. You have to have a trainer where you can manually adjust the resistance. The closest you can do is shift your gearing.

The garmin works off of a GPS signal. If you are not moving, the GPS signal doesn't pick up any movement . . . .because you are not really moving. m Therefore, the speed and distance is nil.

We bought a new garmin 705 and the speed records but not the distance or other features


The Garmin Edge requires that you press the start/stop button to record any data.
1. Before you start riding, press the start/stop button to begin recording.
2. Once you have finished riding, press start/stop button to end recording.
3. Create an account on connect.garmin.com and plug your unit in using the supplied USB cable and download your ride to view details on your cycling session.

Garmin 305


When the memory in the watch is full detail (ie mapping points) of the earliest runs are deleted but the aggregate data (eg total distance/time etc) is retained. If you want to save the mapping points you need to download it to a PC fairly soon after doing the run (depending of course on how much you use the 305). Although you can use the Training Centre software supplied with the 305 I prefer sporttracks which is a third party donate-ware application which many users find to be much better than TC.
