Garmin Edge 605 review

 

The Garmin Edge 605 is one of the new mapping models in Garmin’s bike-centric Edge lineup.This is the first Edge unit I’ve had for a hands-on review; I've been testing it on my mountain bike for a few weeks now.

Edge 605

 

The Garmin Edge 605 is a combination bike GPS and cycle computer. It has the ability to read maps as well as provide data on speed, distance, time, calories burned, climb and descent information.

The color interface gives you more detail in your map display and offers turn-by-turn navigation

A heart rate monitor and cadence/speed sensor cannot be used with this Garmin Edge

Although this bike GPS lacks many of the features you can find in higher-ranked products, it still provides more than most found on the market today.

The Garmin Edge 605 does everything I want

 

At RideWithGPS.com , cyclingnewengland.blogspot.com or mapmyride.com . I download GPX files for cycling routes in my area. Every weekend I take a new ride with my Garmin Edge 605 giving me complete and accurate instructions at every turn

The Edge does not come with adequate instructions, but they are online at http://www.bikenewengland.com

Great for training

 

I mostly use the 605 for training. I find that it gives me lots of useful data. My training involves repeated 4 mile laps and 605 enables me to get detailed information about each lap and to compare them.
