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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: The jury is still out on this one. Great on the road but not totally convinced it is good for the mountain bike. Will test more and hope for better results.
Pros: Totally self contained and waterproof. Secure and quick mount to stem. No wheel magnet or calibrating of any kind. Nice stats and downloadable to your computer @ Garminconnect.
Cons: Seems to not record entire ride. Rode the other day and seems to only have had a signal about 80% of the time. Also recorded same ride with regular computer and the time and distance were way short of the actual measured distance.
Summary: Got this as a Christmas present in 2013. Used it for 2,000 miles - 70 rides; never in pouring rain. Computer display froze during a ride and it was not possible to reset it, or even get it to communicate with my PC. Wiggle replaced it under warranty - quickly and without any fuss.
