Garmin 305 with altitude problems

If your Garmin 305 has become faulty and the altitude reading no longer works here is a good work-around I have found. Firstly let me say by faulty I mean the elevation shows up as something like 5,000 or 20,000m.

The work-around is really simple, instead of using the Training Centre software supplied by Garmin head over to Zone Five and grab a copy of their excellent application Sports track, best of all its free.

Here is an example of the fix in action.
