    Garmin 305 went DEAD

    I bought a Garmin 305 this year with the HRM, well I have never been able to get the HRM to work as I posted in another thread, now all of a sudden the GPS has stopped working altogether. It was charging on my computer, I went to take it off and now I have nothing. What could this be? There is no display at all and when plugged in it no longer displays charge in session. HELP.

    Press and hold BOTH the MODE and LAP/RESET buttons for a few seconds, release, and power it up to perform a "soft reset". You suffered a 'charge spike'.

    How timely, my 305 did the same thing yesterday after my ride. Somehow the battery got completely discharged overnight, so I had a dickens of a time getting it to charge. It also won't download yesterday's ride data, but it shows up in the unit itself. I have replaced all 4 of my bikes computers with gps mounts, I hope it doesn't die on me in the middle of the season!
