Summary: The Garmin Edge 800 represents a significant step back in quality and functionality from the 705. Let's look at the ways in which the 800 is inferior to the 705. 1. Screen is more difficult to read, especially in direct sunlight. 2. Battery life is reduced from 16 hours to about 13 hours. 3.
Summary: Works good, I use it so I don't go into wrong places in the city or get lost. The two issues I do have is the screen is to small and, when I stop n start again it keeps asking do I want to use the timer. Just don't have the time to keep pushing and denying the timer through busy chicago streets.

Summary: Works great in all aspects except a bit wonky when trying to follow a pre-programed route. Re-routing is slow and frequently provides an inefficient (altho eventually correct) solution if I get off track. Talks well with the Garmin Connect and then to Training Peaks. Nice size, good battery life.
Summary: It has excellent battery life. The signal reception is much better than previous Garmin devices I purchased. A huge problem with Garmin has been how painful it is to learn how to operate the devices.
Summary: I love this thing. I originally bought it instead of the Edge 510 so I could setup maps to do long 100+ mile rides. The other option was the Edge 810, which at the time was VERY buggy, updates seemed to have squished most bugs on it though. Overall I have had zero issues with this.
Summary: This gps bike computer is pretty bad ass. I was able to find cycling routes on riding with gps, map my ride and even strava and download the files and import it into my garmin. If you're into travel cycling it is an indispensable tool. The other features are great too.
Summary: Much better than the Garmin rubber band computer mount. It installed quickly, although a hinge and one screw might have been an easier install. I would also appreciate a set screw to lock the computer in place to prevent the easy walk-off theft.
