How to put battery in Garmin?

It is not user replaceable. either you get out your screwdriver and DIY skills or send it in for repair. Garmin may take it as a trade in toward a new unit. call and ask 1800-800-1020

Hi. It is supposed to be a wake up alarm function in my Forerunner 305, but I can't find it (I really used that function in my old Polar). Where can I find the settings? Best /Fredrik

The only alert that comes close to being a wake up alarm is the Time alert function. Press Mode and then select Training. Select Training Options > Alerts > Time/Dist Alerts. In the Time Alert field, set the alert to Repeat (instead of Once or Off). Enter the time that you want the alert to sound in the Alert At field. Then press Mode repeatedly to exit the menu.

The manual for the 305 is available here . The time/distance alert picture is given on page 9. Links to additional documentation are available here .

I hope this helps.

No sound alert for safty cameras

1. Did you download the cameras from Tomtom home without subscribing to cameras? If so, they won't work.
2. If you used proprietary camera service like with subscription, check their site since they provide the sound files with options of message/voice to match their alert types, on their site.
3. If you've got the sound files, place them in the same diectory on your device or card as the map.
Reset the device.
Hope these suggestions help

I have a tom tom one the box is orange i dont know

Either the volume is low or muted. You need to scroll through the menu and check sounds. There may well be a speaker with a red cross through it in your menu which will indicate it is muted. The volume control is pound by tapping in the corner of the screen-I think its bottom right. When you switch on you tomtom it may well say the version number. Does it speak for general directions? If it does and the above does not solve anything then look for the setting which lets you choose "audible alerts" or just alerts as you should have an option of getting the spoken warning which you want.

When I am on the driving view screen, the GPS constantly makes a bonging sound, it is a series of 3 bongs, if I am on the screen with the map, it does not do this. it almost sounds like a warning, what is...

The bongs are usually associated with a selection made in 'preferences' that is to alert you / remind you to drive on the correct side of the road in that country. eg , I have GB maps on my TomTom and also have Western Europe . When I change from the GB map ( we drive on the left ) to the Western Europe Map ( when going on holiday to Spain ) the TomTom will ask me if I need ' alerts ' to remind me to drive on the other side ( Spain drives on right ) . From time to time and especially where I have been in a petrol station or deviated slightly from the route , the TomTom will bong 3 times as a reminder to me . Very Good , isn't it ?
Anyway , it sounds to me from your description that you have this alert turned on.

Good luck .
