Got the same issue. Either Soft reset by pressing mode and lap/reset for some seconds (up to 10), then press on/off for 10 seconds, it should start once.
Mine did start once like this, but after stopping did not start again. So only hard reset did solve the issue :
press on/off and mode together for some seconds, (device should be off when doing this) then press a pulse on lap/reset.
This erases all the data inside, including profiles but then it is working well.

The edge 305 unit does not answer to hard and soft reset command


Just to be sure ...

Here is the way to reset the Garmin edge :

Soft reset : hold mode and lap/reset buttons for 10 seconds
Hard reset : device should be powered down, hold start and mode buttons for 3 seconds then pulse press the lap/reset button.

After soft reset, you need to hold start button for up to 10 secs before it starts.

After hard reset, you will loose all your data, including profiles

Now if this does not work, you should check battery. Does the device charge when plugged on PC ?
If it does not, either battery is out of order or the contacts inside the device re broken. This may happen if device is used in continuous vibrating environment like mountain bike.

Changing battery or fixing contacts issue is explained there :

I will be riding a 340km 24 hr mtb stage race consisting of 6 stages in dec. How do I manage charging of my Garmin Edge 305 over what will be some 18hrs of riding with short breaks between stages?


Bring a portable PC device plus your USB cable, and a charged battery on your PC, Edge will charge when connected to PC via USB.
Any other powered USB source would also help charging.

However for a 24 hours trip, it is worth downloading your races on the PC and clearing memory, as otherwise memory will get full and waypoints will stop register.

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.

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.
