It should go into power save mode on its own after a period of inactivity. Make sure your timer is stopped and your workout has been reset. If the timer is running, it senses activity and stays in normal operating mode.

I just solved another problem where a 405 would go into power save mode but would not stay there. After a minute, it would come out and go back to normal mode and quickly drain the battery as it went back and forth between the two. I installed a software update to get version 2.30 (mine came with 2.10) and that appears to have fixed the problem.

Go to Settings, System, About and check which version of the software you have.

My Garmin Forerunner 405 is completely locked up.


In regards to the locked up Garmin: Press and hold BOTH side buttons at the same time until the unit goes blank. Once released, it should be reset...... This should not remove any history or settings.

GPS problems wit a Garmin Forerunner 405


The instructions say touch and hold GPS and to go outside away from tall buildings and to remain stationary for several minutes. Not really sure what their definition of several minutes is guess thats their way of saying "sit still for as long as it takes." If that doesnt work I would get in touch with Garmin. 1-800-800-1020
