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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 Gripes: 1) Map went out of date in less than 3 months.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.
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.
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.
