My garmin 305 dies when power is applied to charge or download

My garmin 305 died due to a low battery. It switches back on with a low batt warning but with it in the cradle and switched on, as soon as i plug the usb plug it my pc or wallcharger, the garmin dies.

I've tried many hard & soft resets, lost the data, tried a pc software update too. Many thanks

Battery was low, and unit died. Plugged into back of unit with power cord and unit never came back on.


Try charging it for more than a day and then try again. Of nothing, replace the battery.

Forerunner 305 keeps beeping, turning on and off every 5 seconds


I think I had the same problem. You do not write if your device were connected to the PC. My device was, and I finally got the suspicision, that it died because the battery was so low, that it crashed when the PC polled it as an usb unit.
So, I connected the unit directly to the charger unit that came with the unit, and now it works. So, try to connect directly to your charger, when your battery is totally drained.

My Garmin forerunner 305 recently got immersed in


I have read in some other posts about the unit only working while being plugged into a USB port. My guess is that the battery is in fact shot and the unit will only run off the USB port while plugged in. Submersing in water is not a good idea. On the back of the unit there are some small holes for the speaker. These speakers corrode from sweat and eventually quit.

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.

My RIO isn't working due to power leak?


I killed my Rio by transferring files on low batt. Once it dies, it cannot be recovered - trust me, I tried every method possible. I even physically took it apart. Once these ones die, there is no coming back - Rio no longer makes.supports mp3 players.
