Hi - look at this solution for a forerunner 201, which has the same case design. I was just looking myself! R_nz Rank: Apprentice Rating: 96%, 8 votes I've made some progress here, I discovered that there is a small notch beneath the flat black pastic insert that holds the rubber button cover in. By gently prising this out, I can at least expose the pcb with the buttons on. I still can't figure out how to open the case though ****! Comments: Jan 29, 2008 - Well, I got there in the end! As above, I managed to prise the plastic insert cover off the rubber button cover, the peeeled this off as well. Underneath is a mylar printed circuit with the silver domeos of the buttons moulded in. This is siliconed down, but you can peel it up with a fingernail. The top left end (above the on button) is aatached inside the case, so start at the other end. Jan 29, 2008 - .ctd.. Once you have lifted the mylar strip, you can get at the case seam underneath and prise it gently open with a flat blade. The case is glued together with a light silicon or something. My problem was unresponsive buttons and by detaching and then re-attaching the small connector by the big silver block where the mylar attaches to the main board and then re-attaching it, it seemed to fix it! :-) Oct 22, 2008 - As an end-note; I glued my 201 back together with a light Silicone sealer. It seems to be at least rain proof anyway. Forerunner 201 battery replacement (Expert level): Opening the 201 was not easy and could not be done 100% clean, but thanks to R_nz (above) I got it open. My problem was dead (almost) battery, after 6 years of superb operation. I found the battery to be glued (double sided tape) to the back cover. To remove, push it up slowely and pull out. Beware of the short wires. 1. It is a flat battery, wrapped in shrinkable tube. Made by MDTechnology, P/N 043048 3.7V, 500mAh see http://www.mydbattery.com/EN/products.asp?ID=12 2. On the cover, the battery is soldered to the underside of a small PCB, hard to get to (by expert!). If you find a battery, suggest to cut the wires and solder wire-to-wire. Hope that helps

My Garmin 301 if not being recognized by my computer.


Hello,

Which operating system is on the computer?
The Foretrex is not compatible with Windows® 95, 98, Me, or NT. It is also not compatible with Mac® OS 10.3 and earlier. This is a common limitation of most USB mass storage devices.

Also, check to be sure that the USB cable is not defective.

When I wear my hrm on he Garmin 301 and cycle, if I am mountain biking in very difficult terrain, my avg hr will be around 145 bpm for over an hour and the calorie count comes back as 130 cal? Impossible,...


Hello,

This sounds like an OS issue, but may be a hardware failure. Do you ever notice your HRM disconnect and then reconnect to your GPS? If so you may be losing connection to your fitness device which could effect your results. If your connection is fine I would suggest giving the unit a firmware update using Garmins WebUpdater Software. Here is a link http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp.

Forrunner 301 won't turn on or charge


You can try various resets to see if you can get it to respond.
Have you tried plugging the unit into the wall instead of the USB
port.Do you get the Battery Charging message at any time.You can
try a soft reset.Press mode and reset.Then try to power on while
plugged in.A hard reset will delete all your data and settings from
the Forerunner.Press the Power and the Mode button until the unit
comes on and asks if you want to erase all user data.Select Yes.
If the above won't work, try a hard reset that by-passes the
confirmation screen.Press Mode, Reset and Power.

Garmin Foreruner 305 will not turn on or charge


I had the exact same problem and thought my beloved forerunner 305 had finally died. Try pressing the lap and mode keys simultaneously, and then power on. That may do a "soft reset." Worked for me.
