Overpriced

joseph, Amazon
7 July 2014
  • Summary: I am an avid road cyclist and a device that tracks my routes and performance is a necessity. The Garmin works OK but is way overpriced for what you get and there are deficiencies with the device; the altimeter is not accurate, the touch screen is OK but not as good as current smartphones - finding...

Good device when it's working

  • Summary: I was really liking the new Garmin Edge 800, I had it for about 3 or 4 weeks. Then I went on one ride in the rain and now my computer will not recognize it at all. Fingers crossed that Garmin support will help repair the USB connection.

I little difficult to use

Amazon Customer, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: I'm still learning how to use it. But the learning curve seems to be a little hard. My first ride was not saved, maybe for me not pushing the last button. But the info displayed led into believing that I had started the recording.

Garmin 800 good, but not great

D. Lee, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this unit with the intention of riding my bicycle across the Swiss and Italian Alps. Didn't want to use a paper map. The unit performed very well. If you're reading this, you're probably thinking of buying one of these units.

Hard to see in bright light

Ronald Swanson, Amazon
16 June 2013
  • Summary: This cycling computer is a great addition to my bike but it is very hard to see the screen on a sunny day. Like all the Garmin products its position and calculation features are accurate and easy to understand. The touch screen works as advertised.

Nickel and Dime You For Not Much of a Benefit

Mr.T, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: I have had this for 6 months or basically one season of riding. My wife bought it for me as a birthday gift for somewhere in the $500 range. Gripes: 1) Map went out of date in less than 3 months. That was an extra #60 bucks I had to pay after receiving the gift.

It's Ok, not great, not bad

R. Gray, Amazon
8 April 2012
  • Summary: This device quickly reminded me why Apple devises are so ubiquidous. My iPhone and IPod's screen are razor sharp. This Garmin has a pixilated, very low resolution screen. The location triangle isn't even straight lines. It's like using an old school Atari screen. Battery life is good.

It's okay, but buggy

BG, Amazon

  • Summary: This is no 5 star item. I have had several bike computers as well as an edge 500. It likes to lock up on occasion. You will at some point lose your data, hard resets this, soft resets that.

inferior equipment

moabman, Amazon

  • Summary: Great cycling computer but poorly manufactured. Within 2 months after purchase the wireless speed/cadence sensor went bad. I replaced the sensor then 2 months later I accidentally tapped the touch screen with the bottom of my bicycle shoe.
