Try a soft reset? Or replace the battery?

Battery replacement on the 305 is high on impossible.

Set it to "Smart Record".

If it is a real problem, return it to Garmin, and they will send you a refrubished model (to all intents and purposes brand new) - costs about £50.

Other option is a guy in the states who advertises on ebay - cheaper at about £30, and a better battery, but don't get the guarantees and there is a chance he'll break the beeper - quite upfront about it on his page.

Thats what I was getting with mine after around 2 years. Be honest and sell it on Ebay then buy a 310xt with 20 hours battery life. Sorted! You will get around £100 for your 305.

Good luck.
