I've only had my edge305 for 1 week; it took a tumble whilst on my handle bars, I think it got hit around the front of the unit, the screen is not damaged at all. I ceased to work straight away the accident. Is this something that could be reapired?
Will your warranty cover it? If not, I just described how I took mine apart because it wouldn't work. The bettery connects to the unit at the top of the unit where you plug it in. These thing are notorious for bad battery connections.

This is a pretty common problem due to a design flaw in the 305 (although Garmin disagrees). There are open holes on the back of the watch for the speaker which allow sweat to corrode the speaker or material such as sunscreen to block the sound. You can attempt to clear these holes if they're blocked, but it's unlikely to help. If your watch is still under warranty, call Garmin. As soon as you tell them about the loss of sound, they will arrange for you to exchange your watch for a refurbished one. When you receive your refurb, place tape over the holes to keep the gunk out (doesn't really impact the sound level).
I've had this problem. First -- and this sounds weird -- use a USB port on the back of your computer. Do NOT use a "secondary" type of USB port, such as an add-on hub, the ports on the front of a desktop machine, ports built into peripherals like a monitor, etc. Apparently, all USB ports are not created equal. Second, make sure you've the freshest Garmin Communicator plugin (which may entail a fresh download/install).
Hit Mode till you see History,Training,Navigation, and Setting. Scrol to Settings using the down arows on the right hand side of the watch. On the same side of the watch hit Enter.
Hit enter on General.
Scroll down to Units (You can't see it right away, you have to scroll down) hit Enter on Units. There you can change to Metric.
Hmmm. Did you try and reload the software? It should recognise the unit but maybe it needs to "reconect" .
My wifes watch always seems to stop comunicating with her PC. I think it is becasue she does not close down the process using windows safely remove hardware icon. In anycase reinstalling the sofware gets hers going again.
I had the same problem after a rainstorm. Although the unit is supposed to be waterproof, it was not. Garmin replaced the unit when the mist did not clear after a few weeks, and the unit never worked after that.
