If its the buttons on the side obviously some of 'em work or you'd not be able to turn it on to know they don't work if that makes any sense.  Not had any problems with those.

If it's the two buttons on the top face (Start/Stop & lap/reset) then I have had problems there.  They got gummed up with Thetford sand after D2D.  Prized 'em out & washed it off - worked a treat.

How old is the unit?
Garmin offer quite a good warrenty/replacement service I'm told.

thats the problem ... you cant turn it on, but you can still connect it up to the computer to get info off it

Ive got a 305 - brilliant bit of kit, great to upload routes to via MemoryMap and obviously tracks all your riding too.

Im using the data from Nicks racing at Fowlmead this weekend and Im going to "Virtually" race him on screen.

They look good for training but its such a shame they dont have proper OS maps as I require them for a lot of my riding plus they are hundreds of pounds compared to my £40 solution

Apparently the early Edge 205's were prone to locking up after disconnection form the power (or PC)  garmin recommend a soft reset - Hold down mode & reset together - & then a firmware update.  For this you need to use the garmin webupdater:

Of course yo umay have tried all this, in which case I'll shut up & go away Undecided
