If your Edge™ or Forerunner® 205/305 device ever locks up on you, here’s the combo to know: reset + mode. Occasionally a lock-up may occur while your unit is searching for satellites or during use. Follow the jump to learn more about resetting your unit and updating software.
Perform a quick reset by holding down the reset/lap button and the mode button to get your unit back up to speed. On the original Forerunner models (x01), hold down the reset and power buttons. If you have the Forerunner 205 or 305 and you experience a lock-up after removing it from the charging cradle, perform the unlock sequence and then update your device software if needed. Check the Garmin website to see if there’s a new software version available for your device. To check the software version on your Forerunner, go to: main menu\settings\general\about Forerunner. On the Edge, go to: main menu\settings\system\general\about Edge. If you’re due for an update, use the following link to access our WebUpdater, which will allow you to update your Edge or Forerunner device with the most current software available.
