    Edge 305 shuts off!

    Anyone have any issued where the Edge 305 shuts off during a ride? It usually happens on a bumpy trail going down hill. Is there something that causes the unit to go off?

    Yup, known issue. Battery connector gets loose. There is a guy on eBay who fixes them.

    I pulled mine apart, super glued the outside edges and held it together with wood clamps overnight. It has been working for over a year since then. Before, it shut down almost every ride.
