I have had my 305 for a couple months and I have been happy with it. This morning I see a problem with data transfer. I completed my route and when connect to the computer to use GTC to get data from the device, I get "data transfer complete successfully." Yet the activities from yesterday and today is not showing up in GTC. I check the device and the activities are there in the history.
Has anyone seen this kind of issues before?

Do you have the latest update to the Training Center software and the Edge 305 firmware? I got mine in May and seem to recall something like this. Haven't had a problem since, but I did upgrade the TC software and the firmware.
Also, give SportTracks from Zone Five Software a try. It is shareware (registration $25 if you like it) and does so much more than TC. It doesn't cost anything to download and use. I really prefer it to TC.

Thanks. All software and firmwares are up to date. I also tried Sportstrack and the transfer froze when it go to today's ride. I figure it is a corrupt data issue so I deleted all the data in history. We will see if the next transfer will work okay.

I've a similar issue with my Edge 305 and Activity on the mac. I found that if the fresh data doesn't transfer first time I retry the transfer a few times and it usually works on the second or third try. No idea if this technique will work with other software. I used the supplied garmin software twice before discovering Activity.

Just for fun, try going to www.ridewithgps.com and see if it will upload there. It's a free site, and I've had a lot of luck with it. BT
