Review: Garmin Edge 800


Does Garmin's latest bike computer spew too much data? If you're a geeky cyclist, the answer is, "hell no!"

Quick, easy to set up. Bright color touchscreen. Intuitive user interface. World-class navigation functionality and oodles of performance metrics

We’re living in a golden age of touchscreens. Should this one have a pinch-and-zoom function

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


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

Touch response slow, sluggish at finding satellites

After using the Edge 800 everyday it has become something we are now nearly totally dependent on. Going into London, we will always stick the exact address into it just before we leave, so we can cycle straight to the door. For this kind of cycling,...

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 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...

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.

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
