Summary: As per the other reviews, great basic GPS for biking.. Easy to operate, easy to fasten to bike.. No fancy features.. All I need with speed, distance, average speed.. Also can save rides within the unit... Very pleased with it for price. Other models 3 times as much..
Summary: positives - works flawlessly, easy on/off, water resistant, requires no wires, rechargable battery, compatible with Mac computers came with two mounting sets. negatives - not easy to read while riding in most light conditions, paper manual could be more complete. however after trying I bought another for my wife. overall a good bike computer.
Summary: I recently bought a new road bike and often rode my bike on new trails and routes which left me wondering how far I had ridden. Hence my decision to buy the "base" Garmin. I have a Suunto watch as well which sort of fills in some of those gaps which this base model lacks as compared to the higher end Garmins. I also carry an Apple phone using various apps as well so when all devices are combined there isn't much more data that I don't have.
Pros: Accurate, Easy to Read, Lightweight, Simplicity
Summary: The ability to plan a route using the free software program of Garminconnect.com and then transfer that route to the edge 200 is a great feature. It is a little tricky to get started on the route correctly----and the instructions aren't very detailed in just how that is accomplished------but once on the route the display is a solid line in the middle of the screen which shows when the trail is going to turn right or left a hundred yards or so ahead of your present...
Summary: I have both a Garmin 200 and a 500. Here is the differences (my pros & Cons) between the 200 & 500: -The 200 finds signal sometimes 5 times as quickly as the 500, if you need to leave quickly (for work in the morning for instance) waiting for the 500 to find a signal can be brutal or if the 500 shuts off at lunch stop it stinks to wait for the 500 to get back a GPS signal while the 200 finds a signal immediately even in downtown phoenix amongst commercial high rise...
Summary: I needed a new cyclo-computer, my faithful unit of many years finally expired. The $35 I paid for it had been returned to me many times over. What to get now? Garmin has a whole line of GPS-enabled units that range in price from too much money to WAY too much money for my budget. All of a sudden, the Garmin Edge 200 appears, priced from $125-$150.
Summary: As cyclometers go this has all the features of a wired cyclometer. The ability to move it to different bikes is great. Wish it had an HR ant. Other then that is a good cyclometer, easy set up and use. If you are really into cycling I would buy the next model up.
Summary: Overview : I've been using the Edge 200 for approximately 6 weeks and overall I'm very happy with it despite a couple of minor complaints. Before the Edge I had been using a Garmin 60CSx and/or a basic wired bike computer but I started feeling that the 60CSx was overkill for the majority of my riding. It was also a bit large and exposed for more aggressive riding.
