Garmin Edge 800
I have never owned a bicycle GPS, but have tested many basic bike computers. The Garmin 800 is accurate, fast, easy to use and most of all fun.

My main reasons for purchasing the device were to have a bike computer to use on my road bike that would provide various kinds of data in addition to speed and distance (heart rate, time to destination...), and to be able to go for long rides without worrying about getting lost, allowing me to concentrate on cycling and exploring new places instead. I was looking for a product that would give me the information I wanted but without distracting me.

The basic data are very accurate and data fields are easy to read while riding, as long as you do not cram too many fields into a single page. (Screens are customizable and you can flip through data/map pages.) I use two data pages: one with basic information, and the other with data such as average speed or temperature which I do not need to consult constantly.

The screen is easy to read, even in direct sunlight, and it lights up automatically if it is dark outside.

The touch-screen interface makes the device very user-friendly and can easily be operated with sweaty fingers. I have not tested it with gloves yet but other users have said that they are not a problem.

The maps are accurate and easy to read, though I do recommend getting the city extension which is sold separately. Otherwise only main roads are displayed. I use this for road biking so I was not interested in having topographical maps.

The map can be programmed to avoid highways. However, on one or two occasions my GPS device led me to major roads that were not suitable for cycling. Since they were technically not highways, they were not blocked.

I own several Garmin GPS devices, including two Nuvi, a Garmin Edge 705 and a Garmin Forerunner 410. So I was happy to purchase the new Edge 800 GPS computer for my mountain bike. After 3 rides I can definitely state that this GPS was NOT designed for a mountain bike. While it is waterproof, this GPS suffers from an extremely soft plastic touch screen which got completely scratched after 3 rides. I can now see pixel abberation due to the scratches (this is just from flying debris and perhaps dirt on my gloves/hands while manipulating the touch display) which is annoying. Note - I cross country in the bay area, so this is not a result of a downhill/freeride abuse or crash.

So:
1. This model might work for road biking - ride on clean roads and make sure to clean your hands and mitts before maniipulating the display!
2. Perhaps a screen protector might work. Don't know.
3. For mountain biking stick with a lower range Garmin like a 705 (not as scratch prone - after 2 years!).

Other than that - the GPS works as expected.

Edit - reading other bikers reviews I tried keeping the GPS in a soft pouch while biking. It is a good method, and might be a good way to keep it usable in the long run. Not as sexy as Garmin's marketing folk intended, nor as useful for navigating/speedometer, etc. but a useful approach for existing owners who want to track their rides.

Edit 2 - For those who are interested in purchasing this Garmin, I would highly recommend getting a screen protector. So I recently disocovered a Zagg screen protector for the Edge 800. This one happens to work very well: [...]. Also, the protector actually seemed to have made the scratches disappear (or at least be much less visible).

I bought an Edge 800 (along with the expensive North America map software) after losing my Garmin Edge 705. What a mistake! The software is buggy and you end up rebooting the device often; the touchscreen goes out of calibration (you touch an icon on the left and a menu from the right side of the screen is activated, etc.); the screen is too dark to read when in bright sunlight (yes, I do know how to adjust the screen brightness); it's just not worth the price. Buy the Edge 605 or Edge 705 instead. They are much less expensive, are much more reliable and, though smaller, the screen is legible in the sunlight. I loved my 705 and thought the newer model would be an enhanced model, but I was wrong. There are three things that I like better with the Edge 800 as compared to the 705: 1) the bike mount; 2) the bigger screen size; and 3) the automatic warning to hit the "START" button on the device when you start riding. The screen size of the Edge 800 is great when viewing in a darkened room but since it's too dark to read in the sunlight you end up hating it. The Edge 800 bike mount is much improved over the Edge 705; it's much more positive acting and easier to use compared to the mount used for the Edge 705.

I have bought a number of Garmin devices over the years (several Nuvi's for the car, a GPS 60CX for hiking, the Edge 705 and 800 for my bike) and this is the first time I truly am dissatisfied with my purchase. To end my tale of woe with a happy ending, I found my Edge 705 after 3 months of looking and happily it's back on my bike and working great. I still dislike using the MapSource software to load maps on the Garmin 705 but otherwise I am satisfied with the Edge 705.

I probably should sell the Edge 800 but I hate to pass this expensive, basely usable device onto another unsuspecting human being. Come on Garmin fix this thing.
