Still complex menus, check your ANT+ sensor

PostedMarch 26, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Menu system is still not that intuitive, but once you know your way around its good.
Only seems to be compatible with a combined speed/cadence ANT+ sensor. Doesn't work with a "SpeedTrap" ANT+ speed sensor on Trek.

Full Stats, GPS and Great Britian OS Maps

PostedFebruary 12, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Great piece of kit, expensive but this version is bundled with OS Explorer map for the whole of the Great Britain so good saving on buying map separately. Linked to my Bontrager Duotrap speed and cadence sensor, and my heart rate monitor without a hitch and has been providing all the data I could want which can be further analysed on the Garmin Connect web site.
And if the storms and gales stop I'll be able to use it more!

Earlier software issues appear to be corrected

PostedNovember 27, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, clear maps
I bought the Edge 810 as an upgrade to my Edge 500 and I am thoroughly impressed. With the 500, there was often a lag when following the "breadcrumb" trail, but not so on the 810. The maps ensure that you never miss a turn (and easily see where you've been). Also, if you have loaded a .gcx or .tcx course, the unit flashes up approaching turnings/junctions regardless of which screen you're in.
Yes, it is a bit pricey, but the quality feel and slickness of the operating system more than make up for it. The fact that the touchscreen works even through thick gloves is an added bonus during these cold winter months!
I was wary of this purchase as previous reviewers bemoaned many glitches in the software, however, the latest version (2.80) appears to have corrected the major glitches.
One tip: on the "navigation" options, switch off the "automatic routing" function. If you're following a course with "automatic routing" on and go slightly off course, it sometimes tries to take you all the way back to the start. But, this is a very minor problem.
Thoroughly recommended.

Very clever piece of equipment

PostedJuly 16, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great, good size, good battery life, easy to read screen, easy to use once fully set up
Cons: Expensive, very technical
A great piece of technology. It requires a technology savvy person to set up, but if you are familiar with Garmin products it will be straight forward. It is an extremely useful bit of kit and if you have purchase the extra items (such as cadence and heart monitor) the unit provides even more detail about each ride.
Very impressive, even considering the price I still think its worth it and love the OS maps add-on.
