Summary: Other reviewers have clearly defined the positives of this GPS. Personally, I love it. The ability to have multiple screens and customize the readout is fantastic for whatever your riding goal is for the day; distance, climbing, time, heart rate. The only negative to this kit is the horrible design of the pedal cadence magnet. Sticky tape + a cable tie (that your foot can hit) is frustrating.
Summary: I began riding about a month ago. I'm 43 and haven't been on a bike in 10 years. I ride for exercise and having the Garmin Edge 810 makes riding so much more fun. I'm still learning all the features and just got the heart rate monitor but haven't used it yet. I like knowing my speed and distance and calories burned. It helps me to set goals for myself and push myself harder. For the first time in my life I actually look forward to exercising.
Just like other reviews - you'll created a route and it ...

Summary: Just like other reviews - you'll created a route and it will "beep beep" every 30 seconds or so and show your route with directions such as "Go Southeast", even if you're on a completely straight road. It's frustrating. If you don't use a route it's a great bike computer.
Great computer. SO happy with this and the maps ...

Summary: Great computer. SO happy with this and the maps for turn by turn directions. I also love the garmin connect upload so I can move a file over to strava. I don't use a lot of the capabilities. I do enjoy the calorie and low cadence alerts. It easily paired with my stages power meter.
the maps function really isn't as good as maps on several free biking apps i have ...

Summary: Several things force me to rate this only average. First, it didn't come with maps, so I immediately had a 79 dollar charge to purchase maps. Then, the edge doesn't come with enough memory to download maps, so you have to purchase a micro SD card. Then, there were Garmin technical issues downloading the maps that required a several day wait. Finally, the maps function really isn't as good as maps on several free biking apps i have on my iPhone.

Nice computer, Needs stronger magnet for cadence sensor.

Summary: This has been my favorite investment in my bike. I moved to a new city (St. Louis) and was amazed at how detailed the guidance was for even unmarked trails in the Forest Park. I love being able to track my ride and upload the data into their website. There have only been two problems so far 1) The magnet for speed/cadence sensor that is supposed to attach to the pedal is far too weak (on my bike at least) and the method of mounting it was quite unacceptable.
