I have an edge 305 and use it mountain biking. O rough trails it shuts down. I think it's a loose conection inside the unit. When I stop it will turn right back on.


It is a connection problem inside the device. If it is under warranty you should send back to garmin, otherwise you can apply trick as described at following site :

Garmin Edge 305 won't acquire satellite signals


If the option of working without GPS receiver enabled is turned off, then it may be a real damage.

Only thing is to check this option.

Garmin 305 wont power on, wont charge on cradle


Same thing happened to mine. Put the unit in the cradle (just like you are going to recharge it) and press the reset and mode button at the same time for 3 seconds. This will "wake" the unit up.

I am charging the Garmin Edge 305 for 24 hrs or for at least over night, yet the Edge 305 will show 2 to 3 bars of charges and will last maximum 1 hour of riding time. What to do?


Discharge completely device then charge again for 8 hours.

If not working, then attempt Soft reset :
Hold mode and lap/reset for 10 seconds then release.
Start the device then by long press on start. DEvice should start and charge then

Garmin 305 is off and wont come back on.


You have to soft reset it first, and if not solving, then try hard reset.

Soft reset : hold lap/reset with mode key for some seconds
Hard reset : hols start and mode, then pulse on lap/reset.

after soft reset hold on/off for up to ten seconds before it starts.
after hard reset all data are lost

Forerunner 305 won't charge


Question: My Edge or Forerunner 205/305 won't power on. Is there a soft reset that I can do?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From the Garmin web site.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Answer: If a Forerunner or Edge 205/305 is unable to power on, a soft reset can be performed to un-freeze it. This will not erase any user data and is most effective if the device is connected to the computer while performing the reset.
To reset the Forerunner or Edge 205/305:
  1. Connect the device to the computer using the USB cable
  2. Press and hold the mode and reset (lap) buttons together for 10 seconds
  3. Release and wait for 3 seconds
  4. There should be some indication of battery charging (either Finished or In Process)
  5. Power the device on while keeping it connected to the computer
In addition, please make sure that the device has the latest software version

Distance and average speed don't compute.


My solution included changing the battery in the cadence sensor (GSC10). You might not need to.
1. After changing battery, take bike outside. Turn on Edge 305 to acquire satellites (might not be necessary..)
2. Press reset button on GSC10. Should see red/green flash.
3. On Edge 305, go to SYSTEM.
4. Scroll down to ACCESSORIES.
5. On Accessory page, scroll to bottom, under Cadence Sensor, and press RESTART SCAN.
That fixed my Edge 305 - cadence and speed do appear now.
