Garmin Edge 800

Make the most of every ride with Edge® 800 — the first touch-screen GPS bike computer. Providing navigation and performance monitoring, Edge 800 is ideal for touring, commuting, competitive cycling and mountain biking. It has a built-in basemap and tracks your distance, speed, location and ascent/descent.

At Your Fingertips
We designed this display to be rugged enough to stand up to the elements, yet sensitive enough to respond to the tap of your gloved hand. Switch training pages or pan and zoom the map with just a tap. The bright, sunlight-readable colour display is easy to view in all lighting conditions. Just don’t let its good looks fool you — Edge 800 is waterproof to IPX7 standards and can withstand hard knocks and scrapes it might endure in mountain biking environments.

The aerodynamic Edge 800 has a carbon fiber look, and attaches to the stem or handlebar of your bike with the low-profile mount. A quarter-turn mount design holds unit securely and lets you easily swap it between bikes using removable, reusable bands.

Know Where To Go
Whether your bike is a means of transportation or escape, having maps at your fingertips makes every journey easier and more fun. Edge 800 comes with a built-in basemap that shows major roads and cities, plus it’s compatible with our microSD™ cards. Select a destination and Edge 800 provides turn-by-turn navigation prompts on screen.

Edge 800 can also guide you along routes recorded by other cyclists. Explore our Garmin Connect™ site and choose from millions of rides uploaded by other users. Any activities you upload to your Edge 800 are stored as courses. You can follow the course with navigation prompts or, for a little competition, race it and try to beat previously set goals. You can also use Garmin’s free BaseCamp™ software or other applications to create a route, view elevation changes and other data, and then upload to Edge.

Edge 800 records your every move with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that stays locked on, even under tree cover. The receiver features HotFix® satellite prediction to calculate your position faster, plus it has automatic time zone adjustment.

Data, Any Way You Want It
Edge 800 tracks a bunch of data from your ride and lets you customize up to three training pages so you can see as much or as little data as you want. The barometric altimeter provides extra-precise climb and descent data and records temperature changes.

If you’re a performance cyclist, you can pair Edge 800 with a third-party ANT enabled power meter (not included) to display your power output in watts as you ride. This valuable data shows you how hard you're working, regardless of conditions affecting your ride, so you can train smarter.

Training Tools
Need a little motivation to push your performance? See how you measure up to the Virtual Partner® — a digital depiction of your goal speed vs. your speed in real-time. Other training features include detailed workout planning, Auto Pause®, Auto Lap® and Courses, which helps you compare successive rides over the same route.

Analyze Your Ride
You logged the miles, now it’s time to review, replay and share your ride. Just upload your data to Garmin Connect™, our website for free data analysis and sharing. You can upload from your PC or Mac using the included USB cable. At Garmin Connect, you can see the route you travelled on a map, view a summary of your ride, create goals, share it with others and much more.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by A waste of (a lot of) money I loved my garmin when it works, i.e. 13 months. Then the problems started: unable to connect to PC, unable to pair up with accessories, not showing 1:25,000 map, etc. Garmin customer support was shocking, each time putting forward solutions which required a degree in IT. They first 'offered' a replacement for £75, which I was not happy given how much I'd alreadyy spent. Eventually they sent me a free replacement. This turned out to be a refurbished unit. Weeks later, this unit has now failed too - no power, no master reset possible, nothing. I am left without navigation aid or riding computer, and £500 poorer. NOT happy. 04 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Invaluable cycling accessory I never, ever go out for a ride without my Garmin. I find that it is the perfect interface between activity and analysis. Having said all that I find myself with a flawed piece of technology.that frequently develops glitches which can be very difficult to fix. Recently it mysteriously lost all of the ride history but fortunately for me I download every ride as soon as I get home using Garmin Connect and Strava. Then you get annoying error messages like Error 500 which prevents you from looking at the reports of performance and distances etc. Whilst on a cycling holiday in Mallorca in 2013 the device "froze" then communicated in Greek only which necessitated a mater reset and again a loss of 50% of my rides data, very annoying. I need to know that this problem will not recur during Mallorca 2014 but my confidence is now at an all time low. I would deffo buy a new one if I thought it would solve the problem. However I would buy a new one when necessary because quite simply there's nothing out there that offers the same abilities flawed or not. 20 March 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dont waste your money I just bought this item and its an absolute fail. £270 and it attaches to your bike with a rubber band, your speed is calculated by GPS (no wheel sensor unless you fork out extra cash for it)and it tells me i'm doing 1mph sat at my desk ?!?!?!? The screen looks like its off an old mobile phone and if your buying it for the map like me forget it. the base map is rubbish,it looks nothing like the photo in the advert, motorways and a few major A roads unless you fork out another £35 and upgrade the maps from the garmin website. I'm only giving it one star because it won't let me leave a review without at least one but really it doesn't even deserve that,its a very expensive, inaccurate, poorly made money pit. buy an OS map and go explore the old fashioned way. if you want to know how fast your going get a regular bike computer and if you want a ride summery get the Strada app as i guess you'll be carrying your mobile on you anyway. Save your money and enjoy your ride. 13 June 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Garmin Edge 800 I purchased a Garmin Edge 800 pretty much as soon as they were released and at the time was doing mostly winter mountain biking in all weathers. Before using the 800 I had a Garmin 310XT and an HTC PDA mounted on the bike. The HTC provided moving map navigation and recorded GPS track and the 310XT acted as a backup for navigation due to the longer battery life and also recorded the trip and the cadence, heart rate and speed metrics for supposed analysis but mostly just as a trophy. While I do some analysis I find that I now tend to collect recordings as proof of my excursions. It's also handy to be able to repeat trips and routes. If nothing else this adds an extra incentive to get out and valuable motivation. <br> The Edge 800 replaced both devices and while it's battery life is fine for most single day excursions it may prove a problem on multi-day trips without access to charging facilities. <br> Now, the display isn't as good as my HTC or iPhone but here's the point; it gets the information you need across just fine. Whether that's moving map navigation or performance metrics it's clean and concise. If I'm on a known route I'll have a customised screen with several metrics on display or if I'm navigating a new route I'll have the moving map on which I have heart rate and distance superimposed - what more do you need? You really shouldn't be doing anything more than glancing at the display anyway or else you'll hit a tree or a car. The colour display isn't perfect in all light conditions but good enough. The touch screen works well with and without gloves and the only downfall is when there's mud flying everywhere. If the display gets a dose of mud then it's hard to wipe off completely while riding and you'll probably navigate round the screens as you try and do so. I finished with a strategy of taking a mouth full of water from my bottle and giving it an impromptu on the move shower. <br> I was initially disappointed at the lack of ANT+ wireless download but after some time now realise it's better without. One less thing to forget, it uses a standard Mini USB connector and every time I download I want to top up the charge anyway so I'm still going to be connecting it to a PC! <br> Well thought out, easy to use and, to date dead reliable. There have been some glitches but Garmin aren't that bad at addressing them with firmware updates. <br> I'd buy again and would definitely recommend. 12 September 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Garmin Edge 800 I recently bought the Garmin edge online after being recommended it by a friend after I asked if there was any sort of specific “sat nav” for the cycling world and needless to say it fulfilled my needs. Not only did I use it for guiding me round the roads I didn’t know I also used the superb training feature which I can say has improved my cycling times and made me more competitive against myself every evening I cycle to and from work. The screen is very readable so viewing your MPH descending down a hill even in bad light is amazing and the whole thing is easy to navigate around from viewing the current elevations to viewing the maps etc. Although I haven’t had the product long I do know that there is more I can do with it, such as posting my saved routes online (For this I like to use the website ridewithgps.com) There are other products that Id probably use in the near future that are compatible with the Garmin edge such as the cadence meter and the Heart rate monitor, I see no need to use these at the moment because what this piece of tech provides is enough for me already. If it wasn’t for the Garmin edge id be pretty lost on the back roads and possibly wouldn’t be as fast on the bike as I am now. 05 September 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Garmin Edge 800 Time owned: 9 months Distance covered: >6000km Application: Mountain Bike This is the first GPS product that comes even close to being an "all-in-one" unit - with touch screen, routing for anything from MTB, road bike, motorcycle, car, truck, including or excluding freeways, this unit has even done duty for me as a normal car GPS when I travel in Africa. The unit is rubust, never misses a (heart)beat with an HRM strap that shows the rest how it's done, and with the dust cover on it has survived dozens of hard falls on and off the MTB. If I had to find a con, it would be that the strap seems to be a little less hard-wearing than the better competition, but with the availability of replacements, this is a minor issue really. The battery life of 15h is really good, and for longer events (such as the Desert Dash 340km single-stage MTB race) an external battery pack is available too. This is the best of the bunch in my books! 05 September 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Garmin Edge 800 I’ve recently bought an edge 800. It is superb. I have used a little time to get used to it. But when i got to know the Garmin concept, I was thrilled. It shows the data very clear, also in the dark with its background light. And when it is cold and rainy, i found it much easier to scroll through, than my old computer. And the GPS helps me find the way. That makes it easy for me to tell my family when to expect me home. My polar watch is the next to be changed I think. 05 September 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Garmin Edge 800 The best thing I can say about tue Edge 800 is that I'll never ride without it ! It's as simple as that, this new Garmin model is that good. There are two areas which have improved my training the most, firstly the on-screen heart rate & cadence, and secondly, the post ride data. I've been using heart rate & cadence training to great effect using indoor watt bikes and now I am able to pit this into practises using the edge 800. Then once home I can check the data and see what areas I need to work on. Using the edge has improved my recent race results massively......top work Garmin ! 11 August 2011

I live in Spain and want to know if the maps included cover my local trails. I don't fancy paying another 120Eur to buy Spanish specific maps, when I know that some of the Mio computers come with Euro maps pre-loaded.
