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: 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: 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.
I will not recommend purchase of another Garmin anything

Summary: Garmin have their work cut out... And no, after my experience with this computer, I will not recommend purchase of another Garmin anything. Latest software version (always), lost cadence often, auto start /stop will not work for its life, pop ups blocks/freeze functionality, metric varies greatly...
