I'm looking to buy a replacement charging cradle for my Garmin Forerunner 201 but the only ones I can find also come with an adapter and I'd prefer not to pay for something I don't need. Any suggestions?


Contact Garmin at 1-800-800-1020. You can order the cradle part for your Forerunner 201 for $6.54 plus $8.00 shipping. You can also get the complete charger on Ebay as low as $20.50 including shipping. Thats the best I could find.

Garmin nuvi 260w is not charging with car charger


You have a short in the wire that runs to your unit. Other than holding the wire in the exact location until your charge is complete you would be better off replacing the charging cord. They should be available at your local shop for around $19-$29.00.

Tom Tom 1 Not charging.


I have had the same problem.
after carefully dismantling the unit I resoldered the connections to the power plug.( using a fine tipped soldering iron) I did this on both sides of the pcb.
Although the joints did not look to bad after re soldering and reassembly the unit has performed faultlesly ever since.
As you have to disconnect some sockets and remove pcb,s to do the job properly its best done by someone competent in this sort of work.
One thing to note that caught me out, make sure the lead from the internal antenna is connected as you put the unit back together

Forerunner 305 won't charge


Question: My Edge or Forerunner 205/305 won't power on. Is there a soft reset that I can do?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From the Garmin web site.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Answer: If a Forerunner or Edge 205/305 is unable to power on, a soft reset can be performed to un-freeze it. This will not erase any user data and is most effective if the device is connected to the computer while performing the 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
