I have bought a new computer, windows 7. I cannot install driver for forerunner 305.


Glad to HELP YOU!

It's a well-known issue between Windows 7 and Garmin Forerunner.
Garmin company says it's a compatibility issue concerning the USB connection between the computer and the device and usually they recommend to be an Intel Chipset.
Try to download and install using the latest drivers available on their site on WIN 7 and Forerunner 305.m You have them ALL here and the USB driver was released this year and it's the last one on that list.

GOOD LUCK!

Garmin Forerunner 305 won't turn on and won't charge. Is there a fix or is this it for the device?


Look at

You can soft reset or hard reset the device. Hard reset deletes all data.

Garmin 305 forerunner


you can't. If it is getting softer and softer the speaker may be on it's way out.

See this link for a possible reason (bottom of the page).

Garmin Forerunner 305 miscalculating ascent and calories


Firstly, the ascent and descent are only approximate, and can be very approximate! This is because it's using GPS to calculate your height above sea level when GPS is really only accurate for position Lat and Long. When calculating height, a very, very small error can lead to a large variation in actual height. You should never use a GPS for height if needed for navigation (ie climbing walking etc) If you need accuaracy you will need to get a barometric altimeter.v

As for calories, I think you have identified your problem, it's calculating calories on running not cycling. Not sure what the answer is as I don't know what software you are using but if you are using Garmin TC, bin it and use SportTracks. Takes a bit of getting used to but to really get the best out of your 305 this is excellent software and it's free. Any anomolies like your calorie issue/wrong category import can be changed manually plus a whole host of other stuff. Garmin doesn't even let you edit activities - crazy.

The 305 uses distance to calculate calories. They sell a "foot pod" that you can use indoors, and that will count your calories by calculating the distance you have traveled. The problem however, is that using distance to calculate calories is so inaccurate! The calorie count that the 305 provides is almost always WAY too high. Other heart rate monitors use heart rate to calculate calories burned, and it is a much more accurate measure. My garmin thinks i burned 700 calories an hour today while i was snowboarding, and, while that would be nice, there is NO way it's true!!
