my main purpose of asking on washing is because my colleague garmin 305 seems to have lost its voice. and from his research from the net, it is due to the exposed speaker holes behind the watch. my other runners also have their garmin 305 losing its voice. so that y i ask how u guys "clean", "wash" after every exercise session.

Has anyone experience the the watch being alil slow at detecting the HRM? It used to be quite instant for mine even when im at rest, now the HRM reading will appear once and disappear. Its an on-off thing tho, tried changing battery with the same results. :help:

My had the similar problem, suspecting the sweat that went thru the holes and cause the problem.

My 3months old FR305 bough from amazon vol is getting softer and weaker after each run... i reckon same prob too... email Garmin and they told me to send to Taiwan for servicing.

Wonder anyone here has send before? roughly how much is the cost? Do you think Allbright or Navicom will help?

Has anyone had the rubber button, in particular the enter button starting to wear off?

mine is starting to show wear, the rubber has degraded due to both sweat and old age(got it in 07).

This is 1 month plus late....I did SCMS 2011 FM and my FR305 recorded the whole timing but when I export to GPX file, the display on any GPX compatible software shows I did only ~28km which is around the time I clicked on the LAP button on my watch as entering ECP...where did the missing 14km go?? >.< Anybody can help if I upload the GPX file?

Does the watch data shows 28km as well? I'm thinking if you may have hit the wrong button instead?

Does anyone know where to buy the Forerunner 305 in Singapore? I called a few retailers like R1, no stock and R1 told me the item is obsolete.

Very surprising the price listed on amazon actually went up. I got mine at USD138 about one year back. Now it selling at USD222+.
