Garmin 705 communication problems
I swear I've read about this before somewhere in these forums, but I can't find any info now.
My 705 works fine on the bike. When I try to upload to Garmin Connect, it just hangs there. When I look at the drives in My Computer, it shows both the removable disk and the SD map drive on the GPS. Trying to open the removable disk prompts me that it's not formatted and asks me if I want to format it. I can browse the SD map drive fine.
I downloaded the newest version of Web Updater, but it does not recognize any GPS attached to the computer.
I've done numerous soft (mode+lap) and hard resets (mode+power)
I've tried the "bootlock" method of holding joystick in up position (GPS powered off) while plugging in the USB and using Web Updater.
I'm guessing I have a corrupted data file, but I need to get the computer to recognize the unit before I can repair the data file. Sorry for the lengthy post, but does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
