Question about Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Receiver
My two year old Garmin 305 shut off while in normal use. It happens when a little pressure is given on the backside. I would like to open it for an inspection. Could you tell me how to open the watch?
Thanks for your help.
I have a problem with my 305 whereby the mode button stopped working so semi pulled mine apart.
If you look at the 305 from the side you can see where the rubber bit covers the buttons. The bottom of the rubber bit is attached to the rear of the forerunner - don't try to detach it - I munted mine a bit detaching it. At the top of the rubber, nearest the face you'll see a small gap. Follow the gap anti clockwise from the power button down to bottom left corner of the face near where the wrist strap pin is. Here you'll see the gap is plastic on plastic on plastic. I believe a thumbnail or similar in here and worked around carefully will let you pry the face off. I stuck my thumbnail in there and got the face to lift 1-2mm before I backed off. Note I didn't go any further than that.
For my problem by the time I had munted the rubber cover and was able to operate the mode button with a paperclip I new it was dead so didn't bother going any further as I could still use the 305 in reduced mode without mode changing.
