5.0 out of 5 stars Works great for Forerunner 305!, June 22, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Garmin Forerunner Bicycle Mount Kit (Camera)
There are a few reviews on here that mention using this product with the Forerunner 305, but I wanted to make sure I posted a review to state specifically that yes - the Forerunner 305 fits on this perfectly (even though the description says Forerunner 405 and Forerunner 50).

I initially looked at the Forerunner 305 Quick-Release kit, but the horror stories of the device popping out of the wristband or bike mount quickly scared me away. With this mount, you can keep your 305 on its original wrist-strap, and feel more secure on your bike as the strap is wrapped around the mount. Garmin should abandon that Quick-Release kit and just use this as their mount for all their Forerunners.

One note - you do have to rotate the mount downward to see the 305 screen in an optimal position, but this hasn't affected the GPS reception at all.

Im afraid I had a disatrous experience with the QR-- resulted in my 305 being run over by a car!

Can anyone comment on how well this bicycle mount works with a 910xt? I have a QR for my 305, but alas, I have no 305 as it popped out of the quick release into the ocean while sailing one day. dumb user, but I would like to avoid the quick release if this is a good option.

i agree with this assessment also, two years of technical and cross country mountain biking and never once did I lose my Forerunner. Just yesterday the top end of the mount that holds Forerunner in place broke. I didn't (noticeably) hit it or do anything other than try to mount my Forerunner as I have done a hundred times. So now I search for a better replacement without the little nubs that stick out both top and bottom of mount that are susceptible to breakage.
