I ran into the same problem. I then searched many websites and found some good info at: http://forums.gpsreview.net/viewtopic.php?t=11571. But, in the end, I simply changed USB cabels and the thing worked. So try changing your USB cable first, then go to the above website if you are still having trouble.

Did you just post about a dead battery? I think you did. Either replace the battery or get a new unit.

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.
