daveO, January 30, 2011 I've been using the 605 for 2 years now. Very good
reception, even indoors, so you know it's good in the trees.
Best thing I did was buy the map card after a year.
Unbelievable detail & data. I love saving workouts on
connect.garmin including cycling,hiking,
It does have a breadcrumb trail!!! Favorites sometimes
disappear and they 'move' around. The 'grade' feature is
ridiculous. The elevation is usually incorrect but within
50-80'(yesterday the highway sign said 6K' and the 605
showed 6088')(On my Rino 130 I can adjust the elevation).
After I've stopped moving the 605 sometimes continues to add
distance and/or elevation!! I'm going to make my own wrist
strap for use when not on a bike. Would I buy this again?
Yeah, until there's an alternative...buy a 705 or the 800.

Paul Steiger, August 12, 2008 Of over 10 Garmin GPS units I have owned this is my least favorite.
Garmin replaced my first Edge 605 because it was locking up every
single time I used it now the replacement has the same problem.
In addition to being undependable the unit is too complicated, hard
to operate and if you use the navagation you can't see your trip
computer half the time because it is always telling you something
that blocks the screen. Even though I have mine set to bike mode it
still tries to direct me to busy streets I would never ride my bike
It does not have a bread crumb trail which is the most helpful thing
for me in navigating my rides. I like the etrex Vista much more.
