Garmin Edge 705

  • Excerpt: I bought this little piece a few days after it came out and I must say I have not regretted it at all. Now I do realize that this particular GPS is to be used on a bicycle but I decided to use it as a running GPS, much …

Really happy with this purchase

Maureen Corcoran, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this GPS for my husband, who is an avid road and mountain biker. He uses it almost daily, and is really pleased at how great it is for keeping track of his workout and routes. Was easy to mount on his bike and charges quickly.

Good investment, reliable, does all I need it for.

  • Summary: Great cycling GPS. Does all I need it for and is pretty tough. Already had few crashes and the unit still performs as designed. Also comes a lot cheaper than the newer generation Garmin. Overall it was a good investment.

Affordable, Useful and Awesome

Tammy, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for my husband. So far he says: *For the price you are getting an amazing set of tools that work great. Yeah it's older technology so the screen resolution is not as high as items currently on the market but really do you need that on a bike? *All the components work great and pulling that into their training software is useful. Programing workouts is something he's never been ale to do before and loves that. *His was a refurb and he said he'd never known.

Te best GPS ever seen in my life

Carlos Esquivel, Amazon
18 January 2013
  • Summary: I'm a mountain bike fan and enjoy riding using a GPS. I've had some other GPSs in the past but none of them have surpassed my expectations as the Garmin Edge 705 did. Easy to use, quick in calculating routes, very accurate. Bottomline, it's awesome.

Excellent Cycle Computer- does everythng you need

  • Summary: Love the Garmin 705. Picked up a refurbished one and it works excellent. Heart rate monitor and cadence sensor are more reliable than my previous cycle computer. The data uploads to Garmin Connect includes everything I need to know about my training rides. IMO i cant see what the newer models offer that makes it worth the additional cost.

Refurb Edge 705 with cadence and HR

JK Wickiser, Amazon
28 December 2012
  • Summary: The 705 with options has exceeded my expectations. It's changed the way I train. Coupled with Strava and rideswithgps sites and it's a very powerful tool. Suggest a 3rd party cover/protection or dummy cord system especially if you mtb in low light conditions (I find myself worried that it pops off the mount when I'm banging on rocks/obstacles).

Worth the money!

orbearider70, Ebay
27 July 2012
  • Summary: I have had a Garmin Edge in the past. Several years ago when road cycling alot I had a 305 model. Liked it alot and would do way more features than I needed. So now that I got back into road cycling to compliment mtn. biking I looked to Garmin again for a bike computer. The 705 is the old model I know, but I found a new one for a decent price and opted to give it a try. Features very similar to my old 305 but with maps!

Device will not last long-term and support to correct isn't either

PinarelloFP5, Amazon
21 July 2012
  • Summary: Bought Edge 705 back in December of 2010. Great product initially, fun to use, a lot of data, great. I bought this device knowing there were (are) a lot of reviews that indicate the same fait my edge 705 experienced about two weeks ago. Many complaints about the device eventually getting very erratic in terms of data (Speed, milage, cadence, etc) to the point that you know it isn't working because you are going down a 15% grade on a carbon bike and the speed indicates...

disappointing

zoolug102, Ebay
11 May 2012
  • Summary: I guess I have to be the naysayer here. Be warned that the 705 is nearly useless without City Navigation. To me, that makes the price dishonest. It hardly knows about any roads without City Navigator, so Garmin should have automatically included it (the 705 is discontinued). City Navigation should perhaps be called Rural Navigation. I tried to let the 705 guide me from Manchester, CT to an address in Hartford, CT. It said calculating, 100%... and stuck there.
