Question about Garmin Forerunner 301
*AFTER* I purchased my 301, my HR monitor gor flakey, then just died. I researched the problem for days on the 'Net and everyone said the same thing: it's junk. They made a great littler GPS but the HR monitor is a POS. If you want to fix it, go buy a real one and use the 301 for location. The dozens of posts had another bit of advice: don't even bother sending it in for repair. Some people did it over and over without success. Sorry.

Try syncing again or try replacing the battery of the HR belt

SOURCE: My Garmin 305 will not
Hi, this is a huge problem with this device and its not because their is a fault with it their all exactly the same, as they are done via gps as soon as you lose the signal it stops sending the data and then it wont send the old data that was done whilst the signal was not their.
everyone has had this problem with these devices so your are not the only one, the problem with gps devices is that as soon as you go inside or an area where their is no signal the data stops sending and the device goes into a sort of standby mode, then when you get the signal back it starts up again and the data that was stored during this time is not sent as it sort of stops working until the signal comes back.
so to answer your questions its just not possible with that device to upload the data to the center or dashboard whilst its not in gps range, i know its a pain but these are to be used outdoors or where their is gps signal and thats why they are made to be used with gps, you could by another device like a wrist watch type device to use indoors and these should be able to sync with your pc, but as of yet this device will only send and receive data whilst it has gps data, i think your right in saying it should be able to do this as a lot of people who use these out doors often go the gym or have got equipment at home that they want to use and want to uplaod the data from devices such as those.
but as these were only made to be used via gps then this is a major downside to the device and is the only downside to it, so for now its just not possible to upload or send the data whilst its not got gps signal
let me know if you need further assistance ok
