    oops sorry, posted this on the solutions. I have also been having trouble after all summer. They are blaming it on the usb ports? I really want to use my gps for my horse training program before the summer is gone. I have tried everything. I have worked with about 6 of the garmin tech support with no luck.

I also am having the same problem. The garmin guys told me I should get different usb chips, using intel? Not sure what to do, but I have had this for several years and have not had this issue. Please maybe someone has a solution, I have been trying all summer with Garmin. Thanks

I reinstalled the driver of my garmin forerunner 205 but it is still not recognized by my computer. it has been working for over a year but now I do not get any connection and the device is not recognized...


Hello,

When you connect the unit to the cradle is there any reaction from the unit? I would try using a different USB port and cord first if this dosent fix your problem the next step would be to obtain a new cradle for your unit. They can be purchased here http://www.gpscity.ca/garmin-forerunner-205-305-charging-cradle.html.

Hope this helps!

Garmin 305 stops uploading data


Try maybe a different computer and see if it works. If it doesn't then something is wrong with your item. Clearing the history won't help.

My forerunner will no longer turn on or even charge, can they be repaired or am I best to buy a new unit?


Garmin will repair it for about eighty bucks.

But first, try cleaning the electrical contacts on the forerunner and the cradle by rubbing them with a pencil eraser. The slight abrasive should remove any oxidation on the metal. A bad contact between the unit and the cradle could be your problem.

Can't upload workouts from Forerunner 305


After deleting all but one month of history on the device, it still would not upload new workouts. It would hang in garmin connect, or indicate problem in training center. The solution, finally, was to delete all history EXCEPT for the new unloaded workouts from the device. They then uploaded.

Garmin 305 not communicating with Training Center


I am new to the Garmin Edge 305, and started getting this problem yesterday. Indeed, yesterday it was the first time that I downloaded Courses.

I followed the Guest solution, deleted all new courses from my Garmin, and it now WORKs!!!!

Uploading my courses back again to the Garmin made the problem return back. I need some more work to identify the bad course.

Computer has a problem communicating with my forerunner 205


I just got off the phone with garmin tech. She helped me solve the problem. Here are the steps.

1. Go to http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00466-00

2. Download "Forerunner 205 Ver. 2.80 as of Nov 12, 2007", unzip it, and browse to the folder you unzip the files to.

3. Make sure your Forerunner is connected to your computer and turn it on. Drag file "048401000280.rgn" and drop it on "Updater.exe". A screen will pop up, select "USB" then click OK. Then wait till the process completes.

4. Go to the website on Step 1 and download "Training Center For Windows Ver. 3.3.4 as of Feb 29, 2008". Install it.

5. Run Training Center. At this point, I am able to send/receive data to my Forerunner.

Hope this helps!
