    Garmin 305 to 705 Issues


    I have been using an Edge 305 for the past month, I have upgraded to a 705 but I have a slight issue.

    Neither Sports Tracks or Motion based nor Webupdate will find the 705, Training Centre Communicates with it and see's it as a 705, my PC only see's it as a storage device.

    I have installed everything, and then reinstalled. I have installed the communications plugin.

    One thing I have noticed that the 705 does not do and my 305 did (and this may be a red herring) is although there is power going to it when its plugged into my PC (it has the little Computer symbol showing) I cant turn it on whilst its plugged into the comp. I used to be able to do this with the 305.

    Any suggestions?

    You probably need the Garmin Communicator plug in from here.

    edit: You have to reconfigure SportTrack for the new device, and check for updates. Also a new WebUpdate was just released a few days ago., here. Do you have it?

    From what I know, you cannot turn on the 705 while connected, but do the "remove device" and it will charge. Why is this a major issue for you?
