    Same problem, my 405 connects to transfer data then says transfer failed!!!

    I have sent an error report to Garmin over a week ago but have had no response.


    Anyone with any ideas?

    Same problem here.  Worked like a charm for past several weeks then lately no luck.  Quick scan of the forums seems to point to Garmin itself as the issue.

I got the same issue and it was because of a software update to ANT+ agent being not compatible with the 405.
here is what I got from Garmin Support.
This solved my problem:
There is currently an issue that has been identified with the latest
version of the ANT agent where it will not transfer data to the computer
from a 405cx. To resolve this please follow these steps
1. If the device has paired it will need to be removed. Right Click on
the ANT agent, select Device Settings then click Remove Device.
2. Right Click the ANT agent and select Exit to close the ANT agent
3. Go to the Control Panel, select Add / Remove Programs and uninstall
the ANT agent.
4. Reboot the computer
5. Download the previous version of the ANT agent from http://www8.garmin.com/software/GarminANTAgent_221.exe
Run this file once it has downloaded
7. Turn on the pairing on the watch ? to do this go to Menu > Settings
> ANT+ > Computer > Pairing (on).
8. Enable pairing on the computer - right click on the ANT agent icon
and select Pair With New Devices > Enabled (this may already be enabled)
The Forerunner and computer should now pair, please be aware that it can
take several minutes for the computer to find the watch.

After calling customer support they have fixed thyis issue.

Here's what you need to do, or at least this worked for me.

make sure Force Send of OFF and all other ANT computer setting are ON.

UN PAIR device

Press BOTH buttons and HOLD until the screen goes BLANK then release BOTH buttons together, this will carry out a SOFT RESET

MOVE the 405 OUT OF RANGE and allow device to go into SLEEP MODE for half an hour

REBOOT your computer

Now re pair device and data SHOULD now transfer


NB make sure you have saved the data by pressing the reset button and waited for the countdown 3 2 1 this will allow data to transfer.



Hope this helps!

Hi, I had same issues with my 405 and found that the instructions are fairly useless, I could not transfer data to garmin connect, I typed garmin training centre in google search with the ANT stick in the USB port.......... then was asked to pair the ANT stick...... after this no problems transferring data , so why do the instructions not describe this process?????? otherwise a brilliant product.

"Detail maps Don't Support Routing" in Garmin Quest


I too have a Garmin Quest and yesterday felt like throwing it against the wall because of the above problem. I found the solution eventually. When you download the maps from the Garmin Maps page, where you select the maps download, make sure that the checkbox to "Include route calculation data" is ticked before downloading your maps. Also make sure that the total memory required for the number of maps selected does not exceed the available memory on your Quest. If you try to fit more information into your Quest than it can receive then you are bound to have some problems. The Quests seems to have different memory specifications. According to the USA spec the memory is only 128mb, the Garmin site says 115mb and the box that my Quest came in says that it has 243mb.

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


You have use the unlock wizard to install the key that is provided with the software. When I bought my Mapsource CitySelect, it came with two keys. The way Garmin does it is, you can install the software as many times as you want on as many machines as you want, but can transfer the maps, data, etc ONLY to unlocked devices. Last I checked Garmin wanted $75 for additional unlocks. Some data is not locked, like Topo maps and some tide points since this data is obtained (by Garmin) from the gov't, which is free for us (wel, minus taxes we pay). Contact Garmin support, they are very attentive.

Transfering Routes to GPS device


Once you have transferred it using mapsource it won't automatically be in the custom routes. You still have to "import it from a file". Unplug your garmin from the computer then go to "Tools" then "My Data". That's where you should find the "import route from a file" button. It won't import if you already have 10 custom routes saved so you'll have to delete one.

How to download from gps to my pc


There is freeware out there provided by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources that allows Garmin users to download their data in a number of different format. Search "DNRGarmin GPS Application" and follow the instructions. This is great for GIS user because it will download to a shapefile.

It has the ability to upload some data, as well. Although, I suspect there are fewer options for uploading data than, say, Mapsource.

Have you updated the software since you purchased the unit? If not, go to Garmin's site, download WebUpdater and check to see if there is an update to the unit's software. If so, download this and see if it helps. If not, try downloading the same version of the software again. This might help also.
