Has a few flaws but is still a great piece of equipment

jqwadejr, Ebay
6 January 2012
  • Summary: I could not give a 5 star rating because of a few draw backs. First the Garmin Edge 705 is a nice piece of equipment, does most things it is supposed to. I highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a great bike computer. The draw backs that I have noticed thus far are; the screen is too small especially for those of us with aging eyes.

Awesome product and a great value compared to "new" models

bryanpapawolfe, Ebay

  • Summary: Excellent. I use this to map out bike rides, keep track of my workouts and as my cyclocomputer. I like that I can set it up for different bikes on their own profiles. I don't use alot of the "new" features the Garmin 805 has and couldn't see spending 800$ on a Bike GPS. I paid less than 200$ for this "discontinued" {garmin doesn't sell this anymore} gps and it works fantastically. I still haven't learned all the features and functions to it all.

Good buy

  • Summary: I purchased this product to use on long rides that allow me to venture off and "get lost" I'm very pleased with it's functions but am disappointed that I'll have to pony up more money to pay for the required maps in order to see local streets.

Good but needs maps

Charles W. Read, Amazon
18 March 2011
  • Summary: The device itself is really nice, it works flawlessly after you get used to the menus and operating it. The major downside is the preloaded base maps are completely worthless. The base maps only include MAJOR highways so don't expect it to be of any navigational use until you purchase the additional maps. The add on maps cost about $90 so keep that in mind when you buy this..

Be careful when buying used.

alexwastaken, Ebay

  • Summary: The unit works very well. I was afraid it might lose signal in thick woods, but it remains strong. It even works in some buildings. The only complain I have is, since I bought the item used, it was already registered on the Garmin website. This make is impossible for me to upload, save, or review my rides. I juts have to remember to write them down if I want to save them. I have spoken with Garmin a few times but they just tell me I'm screwed.

Every function you need

ettoreaquino, Amazon

  • Summary: Amazing equipament, in one piece you're gonna have everything you need for a short or long ride. Don't expect an easy way to use it. Actually is quite hard to use all the functions that this GPS offers you. Attetion! The software can be installed in just one computer, as you need to register it before install.

Garmin Edge 705 GPS Receiver

lungmn55, Ebay
8 February 2011
  • Summary: NEEED A RELIABLE CARDIAC MONITOR FOR MY CYCLE TRAINING. MISSED MY OLD POLAR SETUP AND THOUGHT THIS WOULD WORK, PLUS ALL THE ADDED FEATURES GPS, CALORIES USED, DOWN LOADABLE INFO,CADENCE, ETC. LIKE THE FACT I CAN CHANGE ALL MY OWN BATTERIES, UNLIKE THE POLAR UNIT , WHERE I HAD TO SEND IT BACK TO THE FACTORY. ONLY DRAWBACK I SEE IS I NEED ANOTHER PROGRAM TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE GPS FEATURE(MAPS PROGRAM).

I cant live without it!!!

D. Pastore, Amazon
1 February 2011
  • Summary: I've owned the 705 for almost 8 months and I can honestly say I don't think I could live without it now. I mainly use it for road and mountain biking and actually have brought it with me on a few cross training runs. Garmin Connect sweetens the deal with an awesome array of features to store and monitor your data. I've used cateye products in the past and there great if you only need to know small amount of data.
