My garmin forerunner 305 turns off automaticly after a couple of minutes, and the battery is fully charge.


Try SW reset. Hold Mode and lap/reset for 10 seconds, then release and long press start until device restarts.
Should clean up default.

If not try hard reset, but you'll loose all data in device.
hold mode and start for ten second, device needs to off before.
Then keeping these, pulse press lap/reset.
You'll get a confirmation screen

Garmin Forerunner 305 won't turn on and won't charge. Is there a fix or is this it for the device?


Look at

You can soft reset or hard reset the device. Hard reset deletes all data.

Ive not had my garmin 305 long, it will not charge or turn on.


This might just need a reset. To reset the Forerunner or Edge 205/305:
  1. Connect the device to the computer using the USB cable
  2. Press and hold the mode and reset (lap) buttons together for 10 seconds
  3. Release and wait for 3 seconds
  4. There should be some indication of battery charging (either Finished or In Process)
  5. Power the device on while keeping it connected to the computer
In addition, please make sure that the device has the latest software version available by downloading and running the WebUpdater program. To update the software, please use the following link:

you can't. If it is getting softer and softer the speaker may be on it's way out.

See this link for a possible reason (bottom of the page).

Press and hold the mode and lap buttons for 10 seconds, then release. Most of the time, that will fix it. Garmin has a sort of sleep mode programmed in for certain situations. If that doesn't work, I have had wonderful success with Garmin tech support.

Garmin Foreruner 305 will not turn on or charge


I had the exact same problem and thought my beloved forerunner 305 had finally died. Try pressing the lap and mode keys simultaneously, and then power on. That may do a "soft reset." Worked for me.

Garmin Forerunner 305 usb cable won't be read


The problem is probably not with the USB cable if the GPS wont even turn on. The older firmware of the Forerunner 205 and 305 have a problem with locking up. This causes the Forerunner to look completely dead. There is a reset procedure: push the mode and reset button at the same time and then let go and hit the power on button. If it powers on that is the problem. Go to the Garmin site and load the newest rev. of firmware into the Forerunner. Fixed mine and a few friends with the same problem.

I do however have a cable problem. Sometimes my PC will come up with unrecognized USB device and my 305 wont talk to the PC, it does charge. It is the cable or dock for sure, because I have tried a different cable/dock and the 305 has no problem. This is the reason I ended up here. I hope the lock fix works for those with the above problem.
