My Garmin 305 is DEAD!!!

Just returned from a ride. Connected the 305 to the computer and I loaded TC and downloaded the ride file. I got some error message the file, but I don't remember what is was. The file seemed to load OK.

I then went to Garmin Connect to upload the file there. Everything started OK, but the blue like went across and froze. I looked at the garmin, nad the screen was blank. No "Battery Charging in progress" or anything. The power button did nothing.

I called Garmin Customer support. It said I had a 15 - 20 min wait, but after about 8 - 10 min I got Wayne on the line. After I described what happened, he told me to press and hold the "Lap" (RESET) and "Mode" buttons for 5 sec. Then he said to try the power button.

Voila! It powered up. Wayne had me try Garmin Connect again and it uploaded the file no problem this time.

Like any computer doing a reset is the first step, google is faster than the help desk
The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large
