Question about Garmin Edge 305 GPS Receiver
The heart rate sensor does not work. Battery seems okay. Ensured that system settings - accessories enabled the heart rate sensor, and even forced a rescan. The unit just does not pick up signals from the heart rate sensor belt.
The rescan worked for me, didn't know it existed, briljant. Follow list below:settings/system/accessoires/rescan
I love google today;o)

I had the same problem on my first ride with the Garmin. Fortunately my riding buddy had an identical setup that was working fine, so we could troubleshoot. Neither his strap nor his 305 worked for me but any combination of my units or his units worked fine for him. After determining that I did have a heartbeat (!) I relocated the strap a few inches to the left (Garmin Logo under my left pec). Has worked fine since.

When my HRM wasn't working I went into the settings under devices and hit the restart scan option. It immediately found my heart rate.
Not sure if any of you have tried this already.

I couldn't get an accurate heart rate reading on my Forerunner 305. Sometimes it would say my heart rate was 55 when I was running, it would not even display when I sat down (weird!), and was just erratic. I borrowed a friend's heart rate monitor, paired it with my 305 and it worked fine so I ordered another monitor off of Amazon. Well I got it today and it wouldn't work! So I did a search online and found this article: http://www.runbulldogrun.com/forerunner-305/i-fixed-my-garmin-forerunner-305-heart-rate-monitor/
I followed his instructions, bent the little wire out a bit and it works perfect now! YAY!!!

I fixed my problem as well. The actual sensors are the ribs in the strap, not the plastic housing like I thought. I cleaned the rib sections on the strap with acohol and it's been working flawlessly ever since. I think there was some reside coating from production on it. Once I cleaned it off, it was able to pick up my body reading.
I hope this helps someone !
