Edge 205


The Garmin Edge 205 is a very basic bike GPS unit. It functions more like a cycle computer with the features and the data it provides. The Edge 205 doesn't have the ability to read or display

The Garmin 205 GPS is simple and provides some of the vital features cyclists look for including data on speed, distance, time, calories, altitude, climb, descent, cadence and heart rate

This GPS has a black and white display screen and lacks the ability to view maps

This GPS is becoming quickly outdated, and though it offers some vital features, it still lacks the ability to read maps and perform turn-by-turn navigation.

Dual Sensor


Works great. However, on a recumbent cycle the crank and the wheel are separated. The sensor can be used only for cadence and moving speed verification can't be used.

I have been using my edge 305 for about two weeks and I'm amazed at the ease of installation. Thus far I am only using a few of the features but it is only a matter of time before I begin enjoying more of the Garmin 305 capabilities.
