 Garmin Edge 205 Battery Problems
I got my Edge 205 a little over two years ago. It is acting up - not holding the charge; short charging. Has anyone else out there had problems with theirs?

    Probably the end of the battery life. Rechargables don't last forever, ya know! :( Hope you don't have to send it back to the factory. Is there some way to open it? You might want to try NiCad Lady - 'she' has an excellent selection of batteries. There are other sites, but this is the one with the catchy name.

    GLTY, and watch out for that GhostRider fellow...I hear he's a real wet blanket!!! :):):)

                      Edge 205 is on the way to Garmin support people. They are supposed to replace the battery and check the software - no charge. Stay tuned.

    The Edge 205 returned yesterday. I took it out for a ride this morning and it is as good as new. I think they sent me a refurbished unit. Thanks, Garmin.

        Didn't cost me a cent.

        Whether Garmin guys look at this site or not is of no consequence. Thanks for the information.

          Minor glitch: the protective flap that covers the data/charge port does not fit well. I usually can't get it to close.

                Louis, you are not the king! This is an old battle between me and him...you do not have the cajones to hold our jockstraps. But, you can cheerlead from the sidelines...wear a skimpy outfit w/pom poms...Gringo likey.

                  The correct spelling is cojones. And the old guy no likey.

                  Back to the point.

                      Spanish lesson: el cajon means the drawer, as in the thing you are supposed to put your clothes in. Cojones are cojones; huevos, nuts. I will waive my usual fee for such knowledge in return for the curse lifting.

    That's where jockstraps go, you old fart, in drawers! Where else do you think they go? Sheez, I have to do all the heavy lifting around here. I know what cojones are, I have a huge pair of DD drawers for mine!

        Interest has accrued, so now it is 100 pounds (British). Have your bank transfer the funds to my First National Bank Cayman Island account #8675309-2112. Karma awaits. Garmin sucks!
