MCKY, January 25, 2013 Its minus 33 as I type this, so I have not used my new Edge
800 much-jbut did have to go out and try it. Easy to set up
and works flawlessly. The price matching-and service-from
GPSCity was second to none. Im alway comfortable shopping
here. I have the uncanny knack of being able to buy
something a week before the upgraded version hits the
market. The 810 seems like an improvement, but not worth the
difference in price to me. Do you need this? No, of course
not. But do you want it? Of course-its a totally fun toy
that records everything!
Ken, October 18, 2012 I have only been able to use my Edge 800 a couple of times,
so I haven't utilized all the feature yet. I will be using
mostly for cycle exercising. I am disappointed with the low
screen resolution. The icons look like a something from the
90's. also the shiny screen coating is very reflective
making the screen to see. I had to put the unit on my top
bar instead of the handlebar riser so as not to get sky
JPL, July 5, 2012 The last three years I have been riding with a Garmin 305
and the last twenty years with various Polar products. I
replaced them all with the 800 for one month and it is just
plain great! The flexibility and amount of available
information are all anyone could ask for to analyze their
rides or workouts. It can be used for training indoors by
turning off the GPS feature. After two weeks with the
pre-installed basic map I purchased the North America road
map. When riding a pre-defined course the unit gives a beep
when 1/8 mile from a turn and then again at 200 feet from
the turn. Load in your century ride, or any other ride, and
toss the route sheet. You wonít get lost or lose a turn.
While the GPS features are great the heart rate, cadence,
altitude, and speed information are all anyone could ask
for. I donít have a power meter but that can also be added.
It only takes one or two rides to get used to the unit and
setup is really easy. The heart rate, cadence, and speed
sensors were picked up automatically by the 800. Invest in
the Bar Fly mount. It is a great add on that makes it easy
to remove the unit from your bike and makes it very visible.
I used it with and without aero bars. Either way the 800
is easy to see and read. The only down side to the 800 is
the price. But, if you want an all around great device to
tell you what is going on with your body and bike while
keeping you on the right road this is it!
P Petro, May 28, 2012 We do a lot of biking all over the province of Nova Scotia
and in the past were using my Garmin Forerunner 405 to track
our routes. Never did work out too well. The Edge 800 has
a great display and very intuitive to use. You can
customize your main screen quite easily to show the info
that suits you best. It has a great battery life for those
long all day rides which is very important when your doing
100 plus kms on your long rides. Its multiple features will
be useful as we ride in other parts of North America.
