CL - the exact same problem has happened to my 305 yesterday!! I downloaded my run last night and then later i couldn't switch the device on and the computer wouldn't ackowledge it. I brought it into work today to talk to Garmin, plugged it into my work PC for one last check and surprise ... it started charging.
I certainly hope it isn't a sign off it on it's way out, but when i had a problem in the past i dealt direct with Garmin and they were great.
JH1 - I use Training Centre and Sports Track. Training Centre doesnt always seem to recognise the runs and i'm never sure if the devise should be on or off but i usually get it to work. So i cant really ehlp you. However, i only use TC as it starts up automatically. My advice would be to look at Sports Track i think it's far better, and if nothing else is a back up to TC.
Hi. Has anyone had a poblem with their Garmin regarding workouts and pace alerts?I started the RW training schedule on Monday and set off to a run between 8:10 and 8:30 a mile. The alert started just after I started(understandibly) telling me to speed up.After I got in the right zone up popped another message stating I was at the correct pace. After that I never go anther response even though I checked and at one point I going 7:45 a mile. I had the same problem yesterday and today.I even deliberately averaged 8.00 a mile just to see if I was told to slow down, but there was no response.
A slight update on the above: I ran a 4 mile temp yesterday-7:16-7:36 pace. This tiem I started down hill and was running 7:50 amile and was told by the Garmin to slow down! Once I did and entered the correct pace, I got the beep and once again no more was heard even though at one point I was averaging 7:08 a mile.It seems to stop alerting once I am touched the correct zone.
BTW if it were working correctly would it alert me if my pace was above/below the setting or if my average pace for the distance was above/below?
I have a feeling mine may do the same, but I wear an ipod when out so just keep giving it quick glances. It definitely keeps beeping when I'm going too slow to begin with, not quite sure what it does when I'm in the zone though, but your problem sounds familiar.
I'll check it out on my next run.

I have not used the pace zone function as i trained with Hear Rate zones, never a prob for me with HRZ, i get beep if i exceed or go below the set limits, worth for you guys to try the HRZ, even just for mile or two & see if you face the same problem?
II ran 7x0.5 mile intervals today and it worked fine.I might not be using exactly as it is meant to be used.I will contact garmin.
I am using the speed as opposed to heart rate as I am seeking to get a good for age for FLM and I thought that if I can keep up the training times I should be Ok.I have missed my target time for London twice now by less than two minutes. (Buggrit)
Hubby has Garmin 305- I bought it last Christmas. We all use it turns.
Only prob, would love to ba able to print out stats. Any tips?
Sounds interesting, but how do I go about getting a motionbased thingy whatsit?
I recently decided to bin all my saved courses and start again. Unfortunately when I try to transfer a new course from the history folder I get "Memory Full"
My girlfriend is going to get me an FR 305 for xmas, but this thread really puts the fear of God in me, is this a product to avoid?
