Sketchy Performance as a Cycling Computer

Randall Crist, Amazon
5 February 2009
  • Summary: I used this GPS/computer for a year and would not rate it very highly for price versus performance. Its good points: trivial to move from one bike to another (I've even thrown it in a back pocket to record a workout), reasonable accuracy for distance, though complaints in other reviews about...

Good little toy at its current price.

DLH, Amazon
5 February 2009
  • Summary: I pretty much bought this as a toy to put on my bike. For that purpose, it fits the bill. At its current price of around $100-$125, it's a good bargain for a bicycle GPS. I find it fairly accurate, but not perfect.

A Great Purchase for Tracking your Rides!

Scott A. Bates, Amazon
5 February 2009
  • Summary: I purchased the Garmin 205 about a month ago and I have not regretted it - it is great for tracking all sorts of information about my bike rides. You can fully customize the 2 display screens, too, so the information that is important to you (speed, time, calories burned, average speed, etc.

Great Speedo but Has Its Problems

PD, Amazon
5 February 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.

Excellent GPS Cycle Computer for the Price!

Jeffrey A. Mathison, Amazon

  • Summary: I was a little concerned about trying the Garmin Edge 205 after having read some of the critical reviews. But, I went ahead and tried it since the price was so appealing. I am VERY GLAD I did!!

Garmin Edge 205

B. Birch, Amazon
5 February 2009
  • Summary: Easy to use technology that you don't have to be a rocket scientist to use. Much easier than other Garmin products. All you have to do is take it out of the box, change a few settings, and put it on your bike. The PC software is a bit quirky and took several tries to get it installed correctly.

Garmin 205 Love it!!!

J-Dot, Amazon
5 February 2009
  • Summary: The Garmin 205 has been a great addition to my cycling training. My only regret is not getting the Edge 305 that offers the heart rate monitor. The unit works great and offers plenty of data to analyse.

Great GPS with a small caveat

s4steve, Amazon
5 February 2009
  • Summary: I have been very happy with the Edge 205. It is great for tracking how far I have ridden as well as speed. The only caveat I would have is that the grade measurement for the steepness of hills was not very accurate. In some cases it would show I was going downhill when I was climbing a steep hill.

Good product good price

Ironman, Amazon
4 February 2009
  • Summary: Simple GPS at an affordable price, so you can track your ride, download it and return if you like. Battery life could be a little longer for those realy long 2 day rides when a charge is not available
