Rated 5 out of 5 by FeltBikeRider Love my Garmin Edge 810
This device does everything I need it to. I haven't even scratched the surface of the device's capabilities yet. I ride with a powermeter and wanted a device that would display multiple power data readings and other metrics on one screen. This device does that very well. I have 3 sec Power and Average power prominently displayed up top, with distance, HR, cadence, and time displayed below.
The reason I opted for the 810 over another device was the map ability for century rides. The ability to have turn by turn directions and waypoints on unfamiliar roads is extraordinary. I haven't been able to test that feature yet but am excited to give it a try. Another great feature is the live tracking. I will be able to provide a live map of where I am at all times for my wife which is great.
Overall, I am very happy with my purchase from LL Beans. I never hesitate to buy from them as the customer service is top notch. At $399 this is a great deal for an avid cyclist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AKGoBlue Not perfect, but very good
This is my first foray into bike GPS, I had been using a smartphone and a cycle computer prior to this. I've also got this paired with the Garmin speed/cadence and heart rate sensors for better metrics.
So far the unit has good precision on the GPS and the calorie burn estimates seem good. The ability to really dissect your ride afterwards is nice if you've paired it to your phone and Garmin Connect.
The display is a lower resolution display than smart phone users have become accustomed to, but it serves its function well and is very customizable for data display. You can save bike and activity profiles to control what sensors are connected to, what maps are used, routing preferences, and such. OpenStreetMaps has several ways to download a very good (and routable) bike map for the Garmin Edge series, so you can save on map costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Owen500 Garmin Edge 810 Bike GPS Improved
I had the Garmin Edge 800 Bike GPS for two years, but I like the Garmin Edge 810 Bike GPS better. It's more intuitive to use, and one small point really impresses me with the numerals. The speedometer and odometer figures are larger and easier to see while wearing sunglasses. I use prescription sunglasses that are not polarized but had trouble seeing those figures on the 800 GPS.
