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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: After reading the Amazon reviews of this product, I was just a tiny bit apprehensive. After riding with it for a few days, I can honestly say any doubts I had have been completely dispelled. The speed given by the unit is dead-on. There is no variation from my wired speed sensor.
Summary: Starting with some positive comments, the unit itself (hardware) is nice, it's slightly larger (thicker) than a standard mobile phone and feels sturdy. The screen is clear (but small) and buttons feel nice and are well placed.
Summary: At least one dishonest Amazon vendor (Buy Accessories) is selling overhauled/refurbished units as new. Play it safe and only buy from Amazon itself. Other than that, it looks great; have not used it yet. Buy a USB emergency battery charger for longer trips. APC has several good ones: [...]
