Summary: After considering a bluetooth cadence and hear rate sensor to pair with my phone, I decided to go with a dedicated unit. I ran into a few small glitches with installation and setup, however: 1. I had to use a big blob of epoxy putty on my pedal crank to mount the cadence magnet -- with the number of other mounting aids included I'd have expected a spacer or something included. 2. It was VERY difficult to pair the speed/candence sensor with the gps unit.

Summary: Takes a little bit of work to get set up but once you've got everything in place this works great. One small issue I have is on cloudy days your routing gets a little strange (especially NYC) and strava may miss a segment. This can be corrected with online tools. Overall a great product but I would probably spend the little extra go with the Edge 810. If you don't mind self correcting segments online this is a great buy.

Summary: I have read so many bad reviews for this gadget that I doubt about buying it. But!!!... This device is just perfect, paired perfectly with all my Ant+ Sensor Cadence, HR, Speed. Screen contrast is very good and general performance is great. I have a Trek Madone with the Dual Trap integrated Ant+ Sensors and it worked just right.

Summary: Accurate, easy to upload and view the data via Garmin Connect! Love the Live tracking, work well most of the time. Battery life could have been better! If you're riding more than 10 hours, then you can expect it to die after 6-7 hours. And does not have great visibility if you're riding on a sunny day!
Summary: I bought my GPS 8 months ago. I have been using it about 4 times per week. Last weekend the heart rate stopped registering. I went to a local garmin Shop (Colombia, South America and they try it with a new sensor and strap but the problem continues. I already changed the sensor battery. Software is updated. Seemed strange to me as the problem must be with the head unit.
Summary: Great device with plenty of functionality and options to personalize just the way you want. It connects/finds satellites much faster than my old Garmin Forerunner, and I really like the LiveTrack functions and connectivity to my mobile phone. Nice Job Garmin!
