Garmin 405

Today we went to church, had a dance lesson at noon, came home made a pot of stew and decided to go for a run. I dressed warm, I thought, put on my HR monitor and new Garmin and headed out of the house.

I had planned on running from my house to Eastlake, make one lap around, then head back home. I was just trying out the Garmin and wanted to get home to synch it to the computer. Even though I was dressed in layers, and was wearing gloves, I almost was brrrrrrrr cold!!!!!!!

When I tried to synch to the computer it kept saying THE DEVICE WAS NOT FOUND?????
Now I have to start from square one tomorrow morning and try to figure out what the problem is and to tell the truth I am not very computer savvy!


  1. I just got a new 405 too!

    Did you install the software before inserting the usb drive? Unless you register your garmin & install the software first it won't work.

    When you do get it to work, youll love it!

  2. Brrr!! But so much nicer than hot weather runs, sometimes. :-) Made a pot of chili here. Definitely that time of year!

  3. Hello and thank you for visiting my mad little blog and I've seen your photos I do not believe you are going to be 60....OMG you look fantastic! I think these darn electonic thingies know we are a bit older and deliberately play up....according to my heart rate monitor yesterday when I attempted to wheeze around the village I was officially dead....who on earth has a heart rate of 299 at my age? Just signing up to follow and cheer at your progress.

  4. I just got a new Garmin 405 yesterday! I'm really excited...but not much help to you - sorry! I hope to try mine out for the first time tomorrow. Hope you can figure it out and then give me some tips on mine! :)
