Wish they had software for Ubuntu.

Gym Rat, Amazon
9 June 2013
  • Summary: The Garmin web site has no support for my primary computer, which runs Ubuntu; they only support Windows and Mac. Attempting to install the software on my Windows 7 laptop, the driver installation fails. Other than the heart rate monitor, this device is almost useless to me, compared with, say, "Map My Ride" available for my Android phone.

Happy husband

  • Summary: i bought this garmin for my husband, he loves to bike long distances. I loved the fact that it was waterproof, so he can use it even with unpredictable weather. Garmin is a very good brand and i couldnt be any happier with the quality.

Only lasted two seasons

Silvertone, Amazon
13 September 2012
  • Summary: Like other have reported, my unit worked great when new but steadily degraded over time with more frequent 'freezing'. This also happened with my 605 so it seems to be a general problem.

Product does not work.

Adriano Berselli, Amazon
10 June 2012
  • Summary: By removing the product from the box and follow the recommendations of the instruction manual, I realized that the device did not care and also did not carry the battery, or does not work. And until this day did not work. So I can not include an review of the product.

Gift that keeps on giving

hitchiker, Amazon
12 February 2012
  • Summary: This was a gift for a family member who is a serious mountain bike rider. He rides his bike 25 to 50 miles per day in very rough terrian. He loves it and I am sure that anyone who reads this and purchases a like or the same item will be more than pleased with its performance. Makes me almost wanting to become a serious bike rider myself. I purchased this item from Amazon and I am 100% satisfied with the cost the quality and the fast shipping that I experienced.

Good product, Bad company

RS Rider, Amazon
17 January 2012
  • Summary: For most of us, all we really want are interesting numbers and the Edge 305 delivers in spades! The screen is adjustable to make it easy to read, backlit for night use and it collects more data than can be displayed during the ride. The Training Center software works well and collecting that data can be useful in certain situations. The company however has terrible customer service.

Edge 305 review

Timothy W. Willox M.D., Amazon
9 November 2011
  • Summary: Works well but has several shortcomings. It is difficult to read due to small font and also difficult to see whether the HR and cadence monitors are connected and functioning. Battery doesnt last very long and almost ran out on a century ride ( 6 hrs). logistics of getting to ride information is inferior as there is no separate button like the 705 has. Good value for the money however.

Well... not my best purchess.

gilk, Amazon
6 March 2011
  • Summary: I did like the product, and if it was working well, I would have be happy with it. The problems are: 1. Battery life to short. I've been using it for 3 years, and battery lasts ~4 hours. that good for riding around the bloke. 2. Some times the GPS, simply stoped working. and the, after a few days, it came back to live...! just like that! Now it does not work any more...! 3 years, and that's it! 3, and the chest strap... lost it's flexibility after 6 months.

DON'T DO IT

Unhappy Sirius Camper, Amazon
7 October 2010
  • Summary: Do yourself a favor: Google "garmin edge 305 power shuts off". After a few hundred miles, these power down randomly. Read the stories of people trying to work with Garmin to get it fixed, only to be sent a refurbished unit with the same problem. Shame on Garmin for keeping this on the market. Sorry I bought it.

Software kills me

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 August 2010
  • Summary: What I like: manual stop/start, per lap statistics, integration of features. What bugs me 1: The speed reading can't seem to decide if it's using GPS or the speed sensor. Demotivating when you're pushing yourself and in some trees and the speed shows at least half of what you know you're doing. What bugs me 2: Altimeter seems off and there is no way to calibrate it that I can find. Perhaps it's just how altimeters work, but often it shows me at -200 feet.
