Question about GPS

1 Answer

I recently bought a Garmin 705 for use with my mountain bike. As a novice to GPS, I've had some questions... Question 1 Some how I loaded routes from Geoladder.com to Garmin from my MacBook Pro. When I went to Garmin, I found on Save Locations...waypoint memory full. So, I connect Garmin to my computer, opened Garmin's GPX folder and manually dragged contents to trash. Of coarse, it didn't work. I again connected Garmin to computer and this time went through Basecamp software and deleted waypoints through program. Again, it didn't work. Tried several ways with Basecamp but no luck. How do I clear the memory on Garmin? Thank you...Celso Rodriguez

Rodriguez,
from the main menu select FIND. Select WAYPOINTS, press the menu button ( bottom on LHS of unit) Select DELETE from the menu, choose what you want to delete ( e.g blue flag waypoints) and hit the enter button ( rocker on front unit). Good luck !

Thanks for using FIXYA

My Garmin 1450 locks up and will not compute a route, or show maps. It is about 3 weeks old and this it the first trip for it.


I experienced the same issue with a Garmin Dezl 560 - which is based on the Nuvi. After experimentation with various very long routes the Garmin started with sudden restarts, lockups and other weird behavior. It became unusable - which seemed like a programming error to me.

After a Master Reset - clearing all user data (POIs / Routes / Tracks) the Garmin acted normal again.

A master reset is triggered by holding the right bottom corner of the screen for at least 20 seconds while pressing the power button once. A question appears after some time to clear all user data.

Recently I've upgraded to a latest software version through MyGarmin.com - haven't seen this sudden lock-up / restart issue since.

Cannot unlock the maps in my garminedge 705. When i turn unit on message comes up cannot unlock maps


Information on unlocking garmin maps can be found at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

There's more information there than you need since the article is about garmin nuvi satnavs that display a message "No detailed maps found that support routing" but part of the article deals with locked maps. The principle is the same for the garmin Edge but you'll need to skip to the part that deals with unlocking maps.

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!


When changing battery, accessories need to be paired again.

For pairing please follow instructions in manual or go to site http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/2297_OwnersManual.pdf

Only hard reset cleans up memory, when corrupted.

Hold Mode and Start buttons for 10 seconds (device off). Then without releasing pulse press lap/reset button, you'll get a screen for confirmation, all data lost, including user data and routes.

How do I transfer routes to my Garmin nuvi 250


The Garmin Nuvi 250 does not support loaded routes. You'll have to load the waypoints, and then just go from one to the next, to the next. You can transfer the waypoints to the GPS unit with a USB cord.

We bought a new garmin 705 and the speed records but not the distance or other features


The Garmin Edge requires that you press the start/stop button to record any data.
1. Before you start riding, press the start/stop button to begin recording.
2. Once you have finished riding, press start/stop button to end recording.
3. Create an account on connect.garmin.com and plug your unit in using the supplied USB cable and download your ride to view details on your cycling session.

Cant delete gpx files from 705 edge memory. done all usuall stuff on pc, even tried deleting gpx folder but routes still appear in saved rides when unit re-powered up. any ideas anyone?


Only one idea ... Perform hard reset. Garmin devices have often data corruption issue, that can only be solved by return to factory settings :
Device powered off, press and hold mode and Power on buttons for 10 seconds, then pulse press lap/reset button.

You will be asked for confirmation, confirm, your device should be OK then.
Also update the firmware, you'll get last fixes for data corruption ... (does not mean there are none remaining ...)
