If you go into the Garmin Training center software under "File" you should see "Export". On some versions there is a Back up as well.

If you go into the Export and Export everything, Work outs, History, and Courses (all seperatly) you should be able to save these files to a USB stick. Using the USB stick you should then be able to "Import" these files to the new PC. Obviously you will need to install the Training Center onto your new PC first.

I've just experienced a similar issue for the first time since owning my Garmin 305 Forerunner. Slight difference in my circumstance is that the device itself doesn't show the activity in its history, despite having displayed apparently accurate readings during the activity iteself. Bizarre isuee, and although it's my first issue with this otherwise great device, it does destroy your faith in the unit.

Garmin 305 stops uploading data


Try maybe a different computer and see if it works. If it doesn't then something is wrong with your item. Clearing the history won't help.

Can't upload workouts from Forerunner 305


After deleting all but one month of history on the device, it still would not upload new workouts. It would hang in garmin connect, or indicate problem in training center. The solution, finally, was to delete all history EXCEPT for the new unloaded workouts from the device. They then uploaded.

Training Center won't save data


Are you using the original CD?

I had something similar happen when I upgraded my Wife's software. I ended up lossing all her history. I had to do a Windows restore to regain the information.
I then backed up her data and tried again. Same thing and the back up files would not work either.
If I used the original CD that came with the unit all was fine. But as soon as I tried the new version of the training center all was lost.
I didn't try to transfer data while all this was happening. I was too scared to try as I didn't want to lose what she had on the unit it'sself. So I'm not entirely sure if this will help you or not but definitely use the original CD that came with your unit.

Lost History


May not be linked to date of ride. Device has a limited memory, so you have to erase history when long rides, or frequent rides.
When memory is full, device is managing by erasing older data waypoints.

You may also activate intelligent recording of waypoints, that calculates waypoints record when direction or speed changes. This optimizes memory usage.

Date not changing


After my ride I needed to stop the timer and reset the device. Then connect to the computer and download the history. It appears that that information I was downloading was from a previous ride.

Garmin 305 not communicating with Training Center


I am new to the Garmin Edge 305, and started getting this problem yesterday. Indeed, yesterday it was the first time that I downloaded Courses.

I followed the Guest solution, deleted all new courses from my Garmin, and it now WORKs!!!!

Uploading my courses back again to the Garmin made the problem return back. I need some more work to identify the bad course.
