Summary: functionality is pretty good for the price, sometimes it takes a while to lock satellite signal, but it has never been more than 3 minutes, what's a little dissapointing is that apparently the battery drains even with no use, i have been using it for a couple of weeks and there have been three times...
Summary: Very good gps works well not as accurate but it does the job for me .. I know there is other kinds more expensive and more accurate but for the use I have for it I will just keep this one till it goes ..
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)

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.
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: 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.
