Summary: I'm very pleased with the Garmin Edge 605 unit. As with all Garmin products, it is very well made, and should last for years, or until the network of positioning satellites disappears. The functions are easy to use, with just a bit of instruction, and the unit holds reception well. Nicely protected from the elements too. This is my second Edge, and heck, I'll buy another someday!
I would buy it a second time, no doubt, great unit.

Summary: Great little unit. Provided you know how to live with its shortcomings. Meaning... It has no map loaded, so you will need to buy a set of maps for the country needed. It is not very "smart" at routing a destination. You will have a better experience by creating the route home and loading it in the device. Set the "recalculate" option to off. And you can't use the cadence of heart beat sensor.
