Summary: This is the first cycle computer I've purchased and so far have used it for four rides. While I utilized map data from OpenStreetMap.org, I have yet to use the navigation or virtual partner. I do pair a heart rate monitor and cadence sensor and use the LiveTrack feature.
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.
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.
Summary: I like the maps and being able to use that to follow a route. I am just learning how to use it and figuring it out. I went on a long ride and was concerned about the battery lasting long enough while using the maps. So far it was about 10 hours of use and had 34% left when the ride was complete.
Summary: Easy read.....fast GPS load.....all the necessary tracking categories.....nice link to I Phone......quick charge......jury still out on reliability.....touch screen works well even with gloves
Summary: But... so far, I haven;t been able to find a better head unit. To be fair, the unit itself is very good. I've had a 705, and 800, and now an 810. What I dislike about Garmin is Garmin Connect.
Summary: I believe this is the gold standard in terms of cycling computer. No need to tell all the qualities but I will rather mention my disappointments with the product: 1. Lack of ANT+ wireless upload to the computer 2. Lack of Bluetooth Smart technology 3.
Summary: Highly functional as a bike computer. I'd give it 5-stars if it allowed more flexibility for display fields. My old Edge 305 let me choose "pace" or "speed." It annoys me that the menus are geared towards cycling, only. Seems like an easy software change to allow more flexibility, but they don't.
