avoid at all costs

M Patterson, Amazon
19 September 2011
  • Summary: Today my 2nd edge dropped from my bike as I rode at high speed. I lost it - even though I had added the more robust mounting after I lost the first one. I took extra care to snap it in, used fresh mounts (they wear out) and it STILL fell off. What a piece of junk.

Good product, performs as needed (I purchased a used model on eBay for $40)

bike_man_7, Ebay
16 August 2011
  • Summary: Great piece of equipment for cyclometer information. Took a bit of getting used to but now I charge and go :) I like how I can put the same device on multiple bikes, all I needed to do was buy an extra mount (very inexpensive) and away I go. Charge last about 10 hours, which works for mountain and moderate road rides, need to figure out what to do for double century rides (200+ miles).

garmin edge 205 gps enabled cycling computer

turnergreen, Amazon
12 May 2010
  • Summary: The edge 205 is a basic trip computer w/ the added feature of gps. It records your ride (locations, speed, elevation, calories burned etc.) which you can upload to your computer using garmin's software. This model does not have the capability for downloaded maps, nor can it display your current location. You'd have to move up to the pricier models ($$$) for these features. THE GOOD - Altho' an entry level device I think it's decent value for money.

Great Speedo but Has Its Problems

PD "Morning Rider", Amazon
27 December 2009
  • Summary: I have used the 205 for 2 and half years and am on the third one. Garmin replaced the first one free after 14 months but the next time (15 months later) I had to pay $69. I use the 205 as a speedometer and wear a Forerunner 305. Over a 30 mile ride the difference between the two is about .23 miles with the 205 registering more. The 205 is also more generous in computing average speed.

Garmin Edge 205

roadmaster3000, Ebay
9 December 2009
  • Summary: I do daily training rides; about 150 miles a week. I use my Edge every day and it never lets me down. I love all the features, especially the weekly and monthly summaries. I also wish it could do separate summaries for multiple bikes, but I keep a separate Excel spreadsheet for that information. Another feature that would be helpful would be the ambient temperature. For the price you can't beat the quality, features and performance of this product.

Garmin 205 is only odometer you'll ever need

Peter Breyfogle, Amazon
3 September 2009
  • Summary: Once you own a Garmin 205, you'll get rid of the rest of your bike odometers. Buy the extra mounts for your other bikes. No need for wires, magnets, batteries, etc... For a short term use, it even works pretty well in a shir or bike bag pocket. The only weakness is the battery life. It can only go about 8 hours between recharges. It does recharge pretty quickly, however, it does need AC.

Garmin Edge 205 - Serious cyclist

rigal01, Ebay
2 May 2009
  • Summary: Well worth the money, an excellent acquisition. Dependable and reliable. Provides altitude, calories burned, direction, distance traveled, average speed, maximum speed. I am also able to download data into my training center and analyze my performance after every ride. All that a serious cyclist needs.
