Summary: Device has more than enough technology built in to help you attain your goals. The Garmin site is OK, but I use Strava in conjunction with the Garmin site and I am almost satisfied (Would be great if you could look at graphs of different rides side by side) but this does not take away from the product. Bluetooth connectivity works without issue but only used indoors since it is winter time.
Summary: I've had this for almost a month now and I absolutely love it. I have no previous bike computer to compare this to because I only used a phone app to track my rides. I am using it with the Bontrager Duotrap speed and cadence sensor and have no issues connecting them to the device. I also recently purchased a Garmin Virb and from your Edge 810 you can control it to start recording or you change a setting in your Edge 810 that when you start your ride the Virb will start...

Summary: So far so good, the navigation is a little capricious but if you have situational awareness you might overcome some of its quirks. In one ride I pressed the option to go back to the beginning of the ride and everything was fine until, in a valid turn (indicate by the GPS), it instructed me to U-turn; I ignored it and after a few seconds it continued with the correct instructions.

Summary: Using Garmin Connect to create routes and download them to this unit allows me to explore new roads very easily without ever getting lost. LiveTrack allows my wife to allow me to explore roads on long solo rides very easily without getting too worried ;-). I wish they'd bundle OpenStreetMaps on the thing instead of selling their own though. Including a map would be great instead of making you go online to download one.
A terrible device with zero customer support that you'll buy anyway, because there's no other options yet.

Summary: First of all, if you're looking at the 810 versus the 1000, I'd go with the 810. If you're even looking at the 810, I would go with the 810. The 1000 is too big and the non-resistive screen is too sensitive. If you're looking at the 810, I'd go with the 810 because there isn't really a competitor, yet. (Come on, Magellan!) That said, the 810 may have the worst software both in terms of UX/UI and reliability I have ever used on any product.
