Garmin Not Working...

I went for my 9 miler (turned into 8) on Saturday in the pouring rain. I called it short because I thought it was stupid that my 11 miler was preceded by a 9 miler. And, I figured it couldn't hurt to save my legs a bit as I head into the home stretch.

Anyhow, I ran my 8 miles and and then my 11 on Sunday with my Garmin.... Then, when I went to record my 11 miler on Tuesday (long week so far), my Garmin wouldn't turn on. I thought maybe it wasn't charged or something. So, when I got home tonight I tried to put it on it's charger and it didn't react at all. I haven't had the chance to research. But, I thought I'd put it out there to others that might have experienced something similar. If so, let me know.

Otherwise... Off to the Internet to dig around...

Back up and running after some Internet research. The initial button sequence they recommended didn't work. But, the online download started her up. Gotta charge her now.

Glad you got it going again...it's kind of hard to be without one for longer runs once you've gotten used to having it.

Glad you got it going... another trick with them is to use the wall charger instead of the computer charger, which can aggravate the problem.

Thanks everyone. I actually don't have a computer charger (or maybe I do?). Anyhow, I always use the wall charger. That was goofy. I ran in the rain for an hour and a half on Saturday and I was beginning to think I destroyed it. Phew.

This same thing happened to me a while ago. I don't know how I fixed it, I left it overnight and tried to plug it in again in the morning and it just worked. Wierd.

Big sigh of relief I'm sure!
