How can I tell which?
My Garmin 205 won't upload or charge via my pooter. For a while, if i plugged it in, it would reboot my computer but now it does nothing at all! How can i tell if I need a new cradle or a new cable? Any ideas? (I can't test the cable by plugging it into the mains cos I've lost the plug bit )
I seem to have a problem with My Garmin 305. When I plug it into the docking cradle I just get a blank screen rather than the charging message.
It switches on ok and records my runs, it is just that it won't talk to the computer or the training centre. I have cleaned the pins on the back of the unit but just keep getting a message that there is a problem with the USB connection.
I get that a lot Sarah (welcome to the forum btw) - is your garmin switched on when you plug it in? I find that if I get no msg then I have to either switch it on or off, depending on whether it was on or off when I plugged it in ( - I know what I'm trying to say!!) .
Still waiting to hear from Garmin but yesterday I was fiddling about with the cradle and cable trying to get some semblance of life. To cut a long story short, when I went to start my run last night my garmin wouldn't switch on at all - major panic stations. A friend kindly took it home to see if it would work on his cradle and thank dog, it does but i'm guessing that somehow, in my fiddling, I must have discharged the battery
It is switched off - I just get a blank screen though. It looks like it is charging (I think) when it is switched but it looks like it is still losing charge. I can still record runs on it and hopefully battery will still be ok for Sunday's 10k race.
When I try and download the data both Fetch and training centre don't recognise it
