Summary: Long time cyclist. Have been using an Edge 500 and when necessary a Garmin 60s for my cycling needs (daily 20 mile commutes, 80-100 mile wandering trips on the weekend). The 810, along with OpenMaps, gives me the best of both devices in one package.
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.
