Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 68 reviewers.Rated 5 out of 5 by Swampy2001956 Garmin Edge Great product , fantastic service from our local store. The only missing feature I'd like to see is a lanyard on the Garmin to preven it coming away from the bike 21 September 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by BennyBobs Fantastic bit of kit I'm a returning to cycling to shed a few pounds and get fit rather than race and I prefer to go on long (50miles+) rides on my own. I do like to push myself a bit so being able to see my speed when I'm out is a good incentive to keep the intensity up. I tried using my iPhone with a few apps but once it's in a handlebar mounted case it's hard to see in sunlight and the battery only lasted an hour or so with full brightness and using the sat nav app. So I wanted a speedo and stat machine and sat nav as I like to vary my routes a bit if I get a whole day to myself. Edge Touring fits the bill brilliantly. The screen is actually better in bright sunlight than in the shade. It's smaller than iPhone 4 but it doesn't matter, everything is very visible. You can't edit the layout of the screen only add more items, calories burnt, distance, compass, etc. This is ok but if you want something more flexible I think you'll have to go to the top of the range. So you set up your stats screen which is one of 3 available, the others being the sat nav and an elevation screen. My one niggle with Garmin and the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is their operating system and this extends to their car sat navs too. Editing seems like an endless trawl through menus to find a specific thing and then a trawl back to the homepage to start again and so on. Not like an iPhone which seems so easy in comparison. Same with the sat nav. It doesn't search as easily as Apple maps and can be frustrating to find a destination quickly. And the gps only works outside so you can't sit at home and enter a destination. When you do though it's brilliant at alerting you to turns with high pitched beeps even a 48 year old musician whose ears have taken a battering over the years can hear. Plugged into the computer all the stats come up and are easy to navigate. Obviously no heart rate or cadence but that's not what I wanted. Average speed and elevation, calories, time out and time actually ridden. And a map of your route with is great. Really nice layout. So I'm very happy with it overall and the price is pretty good. It's very light, charges on USB, battery life is good, handlebar mount is solid and it clips off easily. Perfect for me. 10 September 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by Boatrider1 Garmin Edge Touring Special Edition GPS Cycle Worked well from the box following a charge. But the unit did not hold the charge as far as I was concerned needed re-charging after two days no use (Switched off in the garage . Howevernit worked well when used and gave the good info following ride. Need a little practice to figure out all user facilities but generally think it's a good unit. 09 September 2016Rated 1 out of 5 by sb1709 massive disapointment I brought this product with reasonable expectations as I realised it wasn't anywhere near the top of range model. However, the sat nave is pretty terrible using garmin connect to programme a route is a slow laborious task, if you do it on the fly its even worse wanting to send you in all kinds of odd directions. The screen is near invisible in any kind of decent sunlight and the normal mount which I used for my second bike is a nightmare to fit. The out up front fitting is a must buy. Overall even at £140 it still feels way to pricey for what it delivers 29 August 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Leafygent Nice Device Works great easy to use simple works great easy to use simple 26 August 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by Dean57 Garmin Edge Touring. A good and useful piece of kit. Still getting used to it. Ideal if you just want it to route plan for you, but make sure you put your preferences in first. You don't want to be going down a track on a road bike. The instructions are not brilliant. I had to look up some things in news groups. Battery life is certainly less than advertised. I got about 9 hours as opposed to the 15 it promotes. The best use is load your own routes and you can't go wrong. 20 August 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by Peddler51 Good quality product This product is of good quality and value for money. Unfortunately the micro SD card which came with the Garmin Edge Touring was corrupt and I had to buy another one. 16 August 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by RedJersey Simple and Effective Having shied away from GPS for a long while owing to a combination of price, being stubborn, favouring tradition I finally was convinced of how useful it could be by a fellow cyclist who had the same reservations. He recommended I look at this product and Halfords had an excellent discount on it. You need to google for the 'Ride with GPS' website and download some useful info from the Garmin website to really make it work, but then it is incredibly easy to use, particularly when you want to just upload a .gpx route someone else has prepared. Mapping very clear, finds the satellites quickly, signal stays on with hardly ever dropping, battery life looks like it will get up to the 17 hours (56% left after 7 hours recently). 16 August 2016
