I bought a new 305 edge and installed the software - the first download and upload worked perfectly but after that the garmin wont connect to my coputer with an error that says - 305 cant connect - make sure Garmin is connected to computer- when I look at the gstart in the bottom right it says Garmin connected.

If you have the time and patience then log onto garmin and download the webupdater then join the garmin site and plug in your 305 garmin dashboard will update for you and possibly fix it, other than that you will have to send it to garmin, if its still in warranty, 75 dollars if its out of warranty
Apperently my unit had some old data prior to my purchase, (amzon selling returned equipment I imagine)
Anyway, I did a hard reset, (turn the power on while holding the mode button down) Erases all history. I then paired up my accessories again, tested it in 1 second mode and smart recording mode. The hard reset seemed to work for me. My 305 edge is now downloading map and graph data to my PC. Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.
Pairing the Edge 305 and sensors
Once you have installed the Garmin Edge 305 and the
cadence sensor they need to be paired. As they communicate wirelessly
with each other the Edge needs to connect to each sensor before it can
receive input from it.
The initial pairing needs to be done away from other
wireless systems this allows the Edge to pick up the sensors it is
supposed to be monitoring. This is a little like black magic, but it
seems to work quite easily.
The cadence sensor has a small press contact which puts the sensor into pairing mode. The HRM just seemed to connect by itself.
Subsequent pairing is much faster as the Edge 305 seems
to remember which sensors it is paired with. If you have problems or
need to change one of the sensors then you can use a setup feature to
either turn the sensor off or to re-pair it.
