Cannot connect my garmin 405 forerunner to the computer

  • Anonymous Jan 26, 2009

    My ANT stick seems to be installed correctly, but it will not detect my 405 so I cannot pair or upload data.

    I have followed the troubleshooting in help. Any suggestions?

    Garmin ANT status stays at "Searching for devices..." I have about 30 runs that uploaded with no issues.

I think the issue could be IE8. Even with compatibility view on IIE8 does not work for me. Safari does not work either. Try installing Firefox, and then uninstaling and reinstalling all garmin software (drivers, ANT, garmin connect). Hope this helps someone (I've spent all bloody day on this!) ;o)

SOURCE: Garmin Forerunner 405 always shows wrong time/date

page 28 of your owners manual indicates it sets itself from a satellite signal , however if you touch and hold menu / settings / time , you have option to set time zone and daylight savings is applicable , that should fix ya up .

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
