Strengths:    Very fast at receiving GPS signal,
Topo maps work really well, picks up HR monitor straight away (when i use it),
Mapping ability is really good.
Battery has lasted 12h and went down to 28% with backlight set to 1 min so might well last 18h with no light on.

Weaknesses:    I start 95% of rides at 65m elevation, it can be a bit random where the GPS thinks i am when starting rides, can be -10
Screen could have better resolution.

Bottom Line:   
Wouldnt do without one of these now, love the mapping ability, download set routes or other people routes as a GPX and follow the route using the topo maps, If you don't get the topo maps or make your own its probably not going to be much use offroad. Very easily customisable screens and can change items on the move.
4 value/overall chillies for price and dated screen.

Strengths:    Way cool technology, love the features and direction Garmin is heading with their GPS cyclometers.

Weaknesses:    Not for the mountain biker! Works with the road and open air just fine, but I have an Edge 705 that I love and does a great job reporting/recording the data, but when I put them both on my bike and did a 13 mile ride, the 810 came up 3 miles short. Because of that, it also was off on my calories and other data points. My neighbor has a 500 series as well, same technology basis, and he has the same problem.

Bottom Line:   
Love Garmin, but since I mostly ride Mnt. Bike, and the canopy problem is a huge limiting factor on the 810. I wouldn't recommend this for Mnt. Bikers at this time. I've been in contact with Garmin and walked through everything they wanted me to update, but the end result was that I would have to use a cadence sensor to get it to record when under trees. I wasn't hip to that, so I decided to stick with my 705 which records/tracks the data great!

Edge 810 alternatives-- all i want is tracking and virtual partner

I need a new GPS unit that will allow me to set a 'virtual partner' at a pre defined speed and have it tell me how far ahead or behind of it I am in real time. The purpose is for a 340ish mile ride that I want to finish in under 24 hours. Since i know the total distance and time I want to finish in ... Read More »

Garmin edge 810 - how good is the screen in daylight without backlight?

i've got the 62s but since i've bought myself a Giant Defy 2 Composite - i'm becoming a bit of a weight weenie and counting grams for everything i'll be putting on the bike. The 62s is a truly great GPS but a touch on the heavy side compared to something like the Edge 810. Question: Just how clear ... Read More »

Maybe I don't have to get edge 800/810 afterall

After months of frustration with garmin edge 500 :madman: and it's inability to render maps, constant freezing and me trying every trick on the planet like keeping the memory perfectly clear.. I give up. I need to find a reliable nav unit to enjoy all those gpx tracks created by very own Epic Rid ... Read More »

Garmin Edge 810 Live Track

I'm looking into the Edge 810. My main reason for a GPS of this caliber is for safety if lost. The 800 is nice too and cheaper but the 810 has the Live Track feature. I like that since if I am lost in the mountains or road, someone may be able to track my footsteps. However, since the Live Track ... Read More »

Leashing Garmin Edge 810

I currently have mine on a K-Edge mount and also have it covered in a white colored silicone case. I figured in the event of a departure from the mount I can easily spot the white color against the earthy trail. With that said, any of you leashing the GPS to the bike somehow? Obviously the 810 doe ... Read More »
