lets you know where you have been

Gary Foster, Amazon
22 February 2014
  • Summary: I have been using the Garmin 305 since they first came out. The only flaw is the mount. I have lost two in mountain bike races/rides and have always replaced it with a like used one.

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

terry, Amazon
3 November 2012
  • 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.

Time to throw mine in the garbage

E. Canzoneri "leeny", Amazon
17 August 2012
  • Summary: Add me to the list. This is my 3rd season with the unit. Season 1, the unit would occasionally turn itself off. It happened rarely, once every 10 rides or so. When I powered it back up, everything was fine. I figured it was a minor inconvenience, so I did not complain to Garmin about it. Midway thru Season 2, it began to happen with more frequency, like once every 3 rides.

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.

Good, but not perfect

T. Goddard, Amazon
16 March 2011
  • Summary: A good product, but there are some problems with this device that are not advertised. Though the manual states that it will store 2 years or 1000 laps worth of data, this is NOT entirely true. It only stores the total distance ridden; no heart rate, cadence, altitude or speed and map data is saved.
