5.0 out of 5 stars
I had been waiting a while to purchase a GPS-based bike computer, but the Garmin Edge 810 was a bit pricey for me. I wanted a unit that would track trips, show speed and distance, and have mapping and navigation capability. While the 810 had all of this, it also had a lot of stuff I didn't need.

So when Garmin announced they were coming out with their touring model, I was excited. So far, here's what I think:

Mapping -
The maps that came pre-loaded on the device are pretty good. The device shows what streets I'm on and also recognized the local bike paths. I created a map on the Garmin Connect site and downloaded to the device. Piece of cake. The map is only as big as the unit, so some things look a bit small since I don't wear my reading glasses when I ride.

Auto Start/Stop -
Great. Set to turn off the timer at 3 mph or slower. Worked with no issues.

Display -
The touch screen is better than expected as it works...Read more

I had the Edge 200 until it broke, and decided to get mapping functions, as I travel a bit and wanted to try out the auto routing function. To know how I evaluate, I ride 3-5K miles a year, mountain and road. I don't race, and I'm not concerned about power/cadence/HR, but I do value form and efficiency. All the info found online about the Touring models came up short for me, so I'm going to fill in some of the gaps. Here's the basics:There are four ride screens:Map, Compass, Elevation, & Data/Ride Info. The Data/Ride Info Screen is customizable and can have up to 10 categories. You can only do elevation/grade...Read more
