9 October 2014
Summary: I works just fine but takes longer than the Garmin GPS for my car (550 nuvi, if I recall) to lock in on satellites at the top of my driveway before I start my ride. I wish the contrast was greater as it's bit hard to read with sunglasses on. The battery longevity seems good so far.
Summary: Pros; Unit and software are easy to use. The Edge's cradle mounts to your handlebar or stem with two rubber o-rings (2 small, 2 medium, and 2 large o-rings and two cradles are included). The bicycle computer is easy to program. I has four soft touch buttons, two on each side. The function of the buttons are labeled on the screen. Starting a new ride or an preloaded course is easy, just push the start button select the function, then press start.
Summary: This does a good job of keeping all of your rides together and analyzed, however it does not have street mapping. It will sometimes lose touch with the satellites on a path with a canopy of trees but it mostly keeps contact. A bit pricey for what could be done by a regular cyclometer. The price will eventually come down. Over 10 miles my cyclometer and the gps vary by about 1/4 to 1/2 mile. I consider it a luxury.
Summary: One must first admit that all of Garmin's bike GPS units are overpriced in comparison to their automobile GPS units. In any event, I misunderstood this unit's "Return to Home" function and have otherwise found it to be questionably useless. While I realized in advance this unit did not have the same fancy functions/screen as their other units, Return to Home leads one to expect it will truly help you return to home in any direction given that it is inherently a GPS unit.
Summary: The gps side works great but it's off with speed and distance. Funny thing is that it shows a slower speed but a longer distance? So I'm just relying on the GPS side of it which works great for tracking.
Summary: I need a clock on my bike computer, so I have return it for a standard bike computer. Buy this computer if you don't need to know the time or are happy to wear a watch whilst riding.
Pros: No wires, reliably records speed.
Cons: I am perplexed that in ride mode this computer does not display the clock. In fact, you have to end your current ride to view the clock. I find this rather odd in a computer designed at the more recreational cyclist. The cost for the company to include this on the main page would be miniscule.
Summary: Works very well when it isn't playing up. Sometimes won't find a GPS signal for about 10 mins riding/3 miles. Tried resetting the unit which sometimes works. It is also quite annoying that you cannot change the settings while you are on a ride. If you are thinking of using the unit as a route finder, it's a bit of a hack as it isn't advertised for this purpose however it can be done - see http://velogps.com/garmin-edge-200-turn-by-turn-directions/ Beware the route...
Summary: I took my first dip into GPS bike computers with this, I can only echo most of the sentiment here that it's easy to setup and use - it's great not to have to fiddle with magnets and bits of wire anymore to mount the thing. The battery seems to last forever and the integration into Garmin's online portal is a nice touch. However, there seems to be a big problem with its precision.
Summary: + leichte Montage + Akkulaufzeit überraschend lang + GPS - Tracking funktioniert gut, kaum Streuung viel Informationen über die gefahrenen Touren - ZITAT des Verkäufers in der Produktionsbeschreibung: "mit Tracknavigation einfach und ohne ungewollte Abstecher durch die Natur ans Ziel" --------> Garmin Edge200 hat keine Navigationsfunktionen, es ist keine Strecke frei wählbar ( also planbar) am PC und lässt sich nicht übertragen, da dass Edge 200 dies nicht unterstützt.
