Hello, I own Garmin edge 705 I cannot turn it on when plugged to charger display shows battery icon close to empty (2 pixel line) and no charging is happening at all when connected to computer via...


Sounds like your battery has gone bad to me. I also own a garmin. I would suggest you contact garmin for repairs. You can go to their web site at www.garmin.com go to the top of the page where it says My garmin and log in to your account. If you don't have one then sign up for one its free. Then contact technical support either by email or by phone to get your unit repaired.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a YES on the web page you just received my response on. Thank you

Garmin Edge 705 displays message " software missing". Unit will not turn on, computer will no longer recognise that the 705 is connected by USB. I run GARMIN training centre on a MAC book.


Emailed the local support desk who said send it in!!! That means no f.....g computer for at least 10 days, what are they bloody smoking. Fat pain in the *** for us, easy for them. I have a cardiac condition that demands I monitor my heart rate and only bought this pricy tool so I could do that at night (with the backlight) when I do most of my riding. I have already sent the thing in before when it was still new and failed to power up. It was returned repaired after a week but it had lost my code for the installed, EXPENSIVE map, which I could not reload and that took another 2 weeks before I hooked up with the 6th tec contact who was able to help.
ANYWAY!
I left the thing unplugged for a few days while waiting to get organised to send it in and it reset itself and is now working-without having to send it in.....I suppose until the next crash.
Happy riding all!

Sorry but honestly...Since GARMIN launch the EDGE this problem is still not resolved by them. The EDGE 305 had the same problems. Just search the www and you will see. My 705 died on me after just 2...


Edge 205 or 305 or 705 or 605 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.

My ST01C works fine for a few days and then resets itself. The clock flashes 12:00am every time it resets and their is no pattern to it resetting. Sometimes it works for 2 days; sometimes 4-5. I reprogram...


My guess, it's the battery... Manual has troubleshooting steps that point to battery.

1) Timer requires CR2 battery to work ... double check markings on your battery. Programs will not function without battery. Battery can be low without BATT warning on screen.

2) ST01C has 1 year limited warranty. Things wear out.

3) When reprogramming, do you Reset timer? Or just reprogram Time-Date. Last-ditch troubleshoot says to Reset and Re-program timer.

Cant delete gpx files from 705 edge memory. done all usuall stuff on pc, even tried deleting gpx folder but routes still appear in saved rides when unit re-powered up. any ideas anyone?


Only one idea ... Perform hard reset. Garmin devices have often data corruption issue, that can only be solved by return to factory settings :
Device powered off, press and hold mode and Power on buttons for 10 seconds, then pulse press lap/reset button.

You will be asked for confirmation, confirm, your device should be OK then.
Also update the firmware, you'll get last fixes for data corruption ... (does not mean there are none remaining ...)

Edge 705 wont switch on


Had a similar problem. Try a combination of lap-reset button and mode button THEN power button.

My Archos 705 is not turing on.


704/705 will not power up at all without a bettery that has a little charge. If these batteries are not used they have a tendancy to die. you could try charging it on a DVR for a few days. then when you disconnect it from the DVR immediatly connect it to a DC charger and your lights should then work. Either way I would consider id a warranty claim.
