Question about Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Receiver
How did you find the button if it was hidden?
I faced the same problem.
Here is the detailed answer I received from Garmin support. It worked for me!
Please put the 305 on to charge. If the screen is blank, press and hold the Mode button and then press the Lap/reset button as well and hold them both for 2 or 3 seconds. After a few seconds you should see the "battery charging in progress" message. Then leave it to charge for 30 mins. While it is charging, download your training history to your PC.
Once it has charged for a while. Remove it from the charger and switch the unit off.
Press and hold the Mode button and then press the Lap/reset button as well and hold them both for 2 or 3 seconds.
Then press and hold the Mode button again and this time also press and hold the Power button. The unit should switch on and have a message on the screen saying ?Do you really wish to erase all user data?. Select YES and press enter. The unit will reboot and ask you some questions including if you have a heart rate and cadence sensor.
I then asked them again:
Before I do the 2nd step which resets the data, will it erase only the training data (tracks etc.), or also all the other user data like profile and such?
If yes, are these can be backed up too?
Why is the complete reset required if the Edge is back to life? Do you suspect some data corruption or inconsistency?
And they replied:
The complete reset is required because this could occur again in a few days time. The complete reset will wipe everything including history, workouts, courses, user profile, data field settings and almanac data.
The first time you connect the GPS to your PC after doing the reset you will get a message saying that the profile on the device is different from the profile in the program. You will need to choose to keep the profile in the program which will then transfer your user profile back into the GPS from Training Center.
