Summary: This a great cycling GPS unit for the casual biker, like myself.It is easy to use and setup. The constant scrolling ride stats are nice. It does not give turn by turn instructions unless I am missing something. It is a nice device at a nice price.
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: 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: 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: 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 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: 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: 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.
