5.0 out of 5 stars edge 800, 10 Aug. 2011
By 
This review is from: Garmin Edge 800 Touchscreen GPS Bike Computer Performance Bundle (discountinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I've been using it for a month now and tried it over a few MTB trails. The mount is simple and rugged. Battery life seems as advertised. The touchscreen works great even in rainy weather with gloves on. The menus are very user friendly and screens can be configured to show as much or as little info as you need during the ride. There are others complaining about the display brightness but even if it is lower than what you may be accustomed to on your smartphone, it never bothered me on the trail. It is easy to read even in bright sunlight. One thing you should consider is a screen protector foil as it may easily scratch. The basemap is rubbish. Consider additional purchase for your area or a bundle. Custom maps are pretty easy to create with third party software. The only thing I feel is missing is the ability to selectively enable them. You can only enable all custom maps or none. So if you have more than one custom map for a particular area they will be displayed according to the layer number. Other than that, I highly recommend it.
