your disk might be corrupted. May be the only solution is to format, with all data lost.
Otherwise try to plugg another SD in Garmin, and see result.

Be carefull that when removing (disconnect) a SD device, it must be ejected properly, otherwise it may be corrupted if a write operation is ongoing.

SOURCE: cadence does not register on edge 705

This is probably a pairing problem. Device and cadence should be paired. Pairing is often lost when changing battery.

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.

Garmin has moved everything to Garmin Connect. Depending on your device, Training Center may or may not be supported anymore. You can go to the link to read more on Garmin Connect. Also, Garmin now uses Garmin Express to sync and update devices. I'll attach the link. https://www.garmin.com/en-US/software/express

Garmin Edge 705 will not turn on. Initially thought that the battery had died, I have changed the battery but it has made no difference. I also tried soft and hard resets but the screen stll stays blank....


Is it recognized when connecting to a PC? If not, try connecting whilst holding the stick in the 'up' position. If it is recognized, try copying all files to a folder on the PC, format the drive, and copy back.

My Edge 705 unit will not recognize the DSC 10 cadence sensor. Had one, thought the battery had died, changed that, this didn't work so I guessed the unit died and bought another one...same problem. Help!

I used my 705 on my trainer and it did not record distance or speed like my forerunner does. The 705 works fine on the road


the Garmin Edge series rely on GPS to track your location from point A to point B thereby calculating your speed and distance. Its no different from any other GPS unit which require a clear view of the sky. It does not sense wheel movement, so using any GPS on a trainer will show no movement and using it indoors will give you a bad signal. The sensor on the crank used on the Edge 705 is only for cadence and not speed.

The 705 comes in multiple versions from basic that will give you heart rate to a team garmin version that has the cadence, speed, calories, etc. As for power meters the 705 is 3rd party compatible to show you watt measurements.
