Hi everyone,

I am a keen amateur traithlete and have had my Garmin forerunner now for over a year or two. It does everything that I could possibly want from it (really not interested in taking it in the pool too, I don't need a hr monitor there, if I'm swimming I must be at about 90%! ;)).

The only two criticisms I would have of it is that it is too chunky, but that really isn't much of an issue, and that it takes too long to find satellites and start up. This latter issue is really annoying! It can take up to 4 minutes (I've timed) to find satellites. I've tried to be careful where I am standing, so the satellites can get a clear path to the gps ?!, but it doesn't seem to make much difference. The loading period is particularly long if I am somewhere new.

Is this a common problem with the 305? Or is there something I can do to fix this? It is such a small gripe but it is very annoying!!
