Edge 800 or edge 810

Postby sigorman85 » Thu Jan 24, 2013 21:53 pm

I can't decide an what one to get is the edge really worth the extra £££
I like the idea if the use with the phone but I suppose it's for ppl who have friends that are really in to it and it look like its nicked a few ideas from strava? I.e your mate has just done blah blah in so n so time .....

I have been offerd a 2nd hand 800 with hr and cadence and Europe maps I think .
It's in "mint condition" so what do you guys reckon on the whole garmin thing at the moment
When i die I just hope the wife doesn't sell my stuff for what I told her I paid for it other wise someone will be getting a mega deal!!!

Having seen the 810 at the cycle show, there isn't enough of a difference to make the upgrade worthwhile for me.

If I was to buy one would it be wise to buy the 810? Or save 50 or so quid and get the 800

Is the £50 saving based on the 2nd hand 800 or a new one?

If it is for the 2nd hand one then I would buy the 810 with a warranty

If it is for a new 800 then that's what I would go for. For the reason stated by redvee

Also wouldn't worry about maps being included as there are good ones available for free download

Hi Markyone,

I use an OSM map from talkytoaster. I understand that they are as good as the Garmin but I have not tried the latter.
It works well enough though.
Plenty of discussion on this subject if you do a search.

OSM maps are as good if not better than City Navigator. They include most if not all UK cycle routes. I prefer the ones from here to Talkytoaster ones as i think they look clearer. Get either the 'Lite' version or the 'Generic' ones.

+1. Have used both and would definitely recommend Talkytoaster/OSM.

Brand new 800 or 810 if the difference is only £50 then I'd go for the 810 - but I've never used an 810 and £50 isn't a lot of money to me, so my opinion is not an informed one.

I think the price difference will be higher than £50.

Evans are advertising the 810 for £380 and the 800 for £270, so a £110 difference. I have seen the 800 for sale at £240 and hopefully once the 810 is released the price of the 800 will drop even further.

So I am thinking the 800 looks a better purchase.

The 810 is £480 if bought as a bundle with hrm cadence and maps and £360 for the same bundle in the 800 version, Think i'd go 800 and save the £120

I'd take the 800 if you can get it a fair bit cheaper the 810 isn't much of an upgrade.

They are a great bit of kit and wouldn't be without one now. But, they do have problems now and again so do carry some kind of navigation back up to get home (ie map) if you are using it to navigate and you are clueless to where you are going.

Ive had the 810 for a week and i have to say it,s a really decent bit of kit with excellent features.
if i had the 800 i wouldn't have upgraded to the 810 TBH..
i upgraded from the 500 so for me it has to be the 810 all the way :D

Not worth upgrading 800 --> 810' however if i didnt have a GPS at all, or ihad the 500 and needed mapping, i'd go for the 810. However that's just me, but if budget was a factor, then i'd say the 800 is more than adequate.

I didn't realise it was out already. Where did you get it, if you don't mind me asking?

Cheers Rob. Had looked at Evans for the 510 but said awaiting stock...

Can you answer me something. The 810 has virtual training partner. It also has a similar facility where you can race against your (or someone else's) previous time on the same route. Does this feature just average out the speed that the previous route was ridden at or is it based on the speed of the rider at that particular point on the route? Ie, does it slow down for climbs or stay constant throughout the route?

Cheers,

John

im guessing it based on the speed off the rider at certain points on the route and probably is pretty consistent during the ride,others on here may be more knowable and may have more info..

Thanks Rob. Had a look at the handbook but it doesn't make it clear.

Anyone else know?
