Edge 800

 

Although the Garmin Edge 800 still has a couple bugs that need to be worked out of it, it is a choice product that we found many users would never part with. We recommend reading the manuals before taking this product for a ride. Garmin has an...

This bike GPS offers more features than any of the other units we reviewed

The product froze on occasion but was able to restart without resetting the information

The touchscreen and color display help set this bike GPS apart from other products. The navigation features allow you to create your own course, save it to a microSD card and follow the course on your GPS.

Garmin Edge 800 review

 

Not cheap, but it's the ultimate cycling accessory

Garmin Edge 800 review

 

Garmin has a serious cycling pedigree, its team Garmin-Cervelo being one of the best in this years Tour De France. The company has a range of dedicated bike mountable satnavs designed to get you from A to B when out on two wheels. 

Well designed and logical navigation system, accurate, good battery life

Touch response slow, sluggish at finding satellites

Pretty much as good as it gets on the bike satnav front, but you pay a price for the technology

Garmin Edge 800 review

 

The Edge 800 is Garmin's latest and greatest satnav for cyclists. It's a formidable device and, although the price will make even hard-core riders baulk, it's packed with features.

It isn't cheap, but this cycling computer and satnav will ensure you get where you're going without faffing around with a paper map. It will also help you get fit too

Garmin Edge 800

 

Garmin's cycle GPS comes complete with a touchscreen, but is it useful on the road?

A responsive, useful touchscreen, fantastic performance and a reasonable price - this is an excellent cycle GPS.

Garmin Edge 800 GPS Cycle Computer

 

A cycling computer should be perceived not as foreign object but as functional component in the cockpit of a modern racing machine. This was one of the guidelines in the development of the Edge 800. Particularly appealing to technophile mountain bikers...

Fantastic Cycling GPS

 

Virtual partner is a great training tool, the elevation graph is nice to have to know when you should conserve energy for upcoming climbs and the turn-by-turn directions is really nice especially when you don't have the time to focus on the GPS

The screen brightness could be a little better and the resolution is a bit poor given cel phones that have a much better screen resolution
