Question about Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Receiver
The watch charges through the computer attachment. However, the Garmin Training centre says it can't communicate with the watch. The watch indicates that the transfer of information has been made.
As above, I had an issue where the watch wouldn't even start nor charge (batteries were flat). Next morning all was well but the unti would not communicate with the Training Centre. In trying to get the watch to work I had reloaded the old level Training Centre and this will not communicate with the new level software in the watch.
Reflash the watch, reinstall the drivers and install the new Training Centre (april 08 version) and all should be ok.

I did have exactly the same problem.
I think what caused the unit to stop communicating with the computer was that somehow I switched to "multisport" mode.
I was cycling and somehow I switch to running.
The solution that worked for me was to download and install the "Webupdater" software from the Garmin site. This will update the firmware on your forerunner 305 (you need to be connected to the internet of course). After 5 to 7 minutes it will be done.
Then, download the latest Garmin "Training Center". This worked for me, I'm relieved now.
