Re: NO life in my Forerunner 305
Hello , By soft reset did you try "Press the mode and the lap/reset button simultaneously for a few seconds"??...IF you had not,then go with it..if this did not respond then you had to go to Garmin for a service like our experts told you already,Do claim your warranty if you have one..!!..Thank you...

I have read in some other posts about the unit only working while being plugged into a USB port. My guess is that the battery is in fact shot and the unit will only run off the USB port while plugged in.
Submersing in water is not a good idea. On the back of the unit there are some small holes for the speaker. These speakers corrode from sweat and eventually quit.
The problem is probably not with the USB cable if the GPS wont even turn on. The older firmware of the Forerunner 205 and 305 have a problem with locking up. This causes the Forerunner to look completely dead. There is a reset procedure: push the mode and reset button at the same time and then let go and hit the power on button. If it powers on that is the problem. Go to the Garmin site and load the newest rev. of firmware into the Forerunner. Fixed mine and a few friends with the same problem.
I do however have a cable problem. Sometimes my PC will come up with unrecognized USB device and my 305 wont talk to the PC, it does charge. It is the cable or dock for sure, because I have tried a different cable/dock and the 305 has no problem. This is the reason I ended up here. I hope the lock fix works for those with the above problem.
