Question about Garmin Edge 305 GPS Receiver
My Garmin Edge 305 won't register cadence at all and goes into autopause mode while pedaling. I have checked both magnets, and they are registering on the GSC 10 sensor. My timer starts and then stops after a few seconds. It then starts and stops randomly, but mostly stays in the "autopause" position. I have reset the sensor, and, again, confirmed that it is picking up both the crank and spoke magnets. Help !!
I had the same problem. I needed to move the GSC10 as close to the crank sensor as possible, then I tilted the GSC10 slightly towards the crank. This is the only way I can get it to track cadence, but it now indeed works. I simply don't use the spoke sensor as my speed is calculated by the GPS function, and my spokes are too wide to be able to use it anyway as far up the spokes as would be necessary.

you might want to remove the battery and inspect the connection pins if one of them are bent or loose they will cause this also a loose connection internally will cause this. if this is a warranteed item you might consider using it ok?

Pairing the Edge 305 and sensors
Once you have installed the Garmin Edge 305 and the cadence sensor they need to be paired. As they communicate wirelessly with each other the Edge needs to connect to each sensor before it can receive input from it.
The initial pairing needs to be done away from other wireless systems this allows the Edge to pick up the sensors it is supposed to be monitoring. This is a little like black magic, but it seems to work quite easily.
The cadence sensor has a small press contact which puts the sensor into pairing mode. The HRM just seemed to connect by itself.
Subsequent pairing is much faster as the Edge 305 seems to remember which sensors it is paired with. If you have problems or need to change one of the sensors then you can use a setup feature to either turn the sensor off or to re-pair it.
