Which unit is better?
I know they both offer the same thing pretty much... so perhaps looking for an answer who owns both.
The main thing is the performance... lag-free and doesn't crash or corrupt files.
A friend at work has a Garmin 1030 and is unable to add a postcode to where he needs to go.
I've had a look into it and even I don't understand it, I only use a 500 so I don't know much about them.
Anyone got the same and could tell us how to do it ?
I am considering getting one for my Christmas present. It is a good price at Halfords at £150 , not including my 10% off with B.C so £135! ^_^
If you use one, what are your views on it? Is it easy to set up, reliable and long lasting battery?
Does it come with European maps loaded or just UK?
As I'm unable to get out on the road these last two months I borrowed a Turbo trainer from my son I have a Garmin Edge 800 with speed sensor on the rear wheel hub and a cadence sensor on the crank The cadence sensor works ok but no speed shows. Or when I uploaded details from the Garmin after...
It looks to me without a cycling power meter there isn`t much useful information to gleen from the app, compared to any running I do. For example no V02 max from any cycling activity. Running I get some feedback right away and can see some improvements albeit small gains. A wee bit of a let down...

I have a Garmin connect app on my phone. It gives me several bits of info. Most of it I don’t really know what it is, or care that much. However, this was quite interesting.
Fitness age? I’ve never heard of it before. But it’s 25 years younger than I am, which sounds good :laugh:
I'm looking to replace my Garmin 520 which was stolen in April from in what is supposed to be secure building where the staff who have access are supposed to be the ones stopping theft.... Not that I'm still bitter.
Anyways.... I've given up hope of it being returned or "found". The annoying...
selling my old garmin 200 and 500
The 200 had a new battery but sound not connected so it doesn't beep ,im sure if you have more nimble fingers you could do it assuming you have the right tool to open it.
the 500 works fine ( recorded the 100 + we did the other week ) includes a rubber cover...
Its a fairly basic model (200 edge?).
It was on approx 50% charge when at 12 miles it beeped and switched off. I immediately re-started it and was able to "resume" my ride.
The whole ride was 28 miles and it behaved the remainder of the way.
Its never done it before and never given me any...

I am selling my Garmin vivoactive 3 as I honestly prefer my Garmin Edge unit to the watch. Watch was bought mid July this year and barely used.
Nothing wrong with the watch at all, it works perfectly well but it’s just not my thing, as it turns out. Asking £120 for it, posted to mainland uk, or...
Had my Garmin 800 almost 6 years, never had an issue with it until this morning, I was riding along & noticed that the usual screen wasn't on & it said some about auto-power off press here or something else to press here. Unfortunately before I had time to read what it said it powered off, so...
Having an argument with Garmin, bought a Sat Nav that had free map updates for life, it's now stopped updating as Garmin Express claims it can't see the unit. I have a Mac which Garmin support, can't see the unit, I have Windows which Garmin support, can't see the unit. But I also have Linux...
I have a Garmin 810, which I bought second hand. Not long after getting it, the touch screen started to fail. I sent it back to Garmin for their “fixed price repair” thing, and they swapped it for a refurbished unit - £69+VAT, so about £82 in total. That was 18 months ago.
A few weeks ago, it...
I have a vivosmart HR+ and have had so for several years now, absolutely love it - esoecially that it sumyncs pretty seamlessly with my edge 520.
Of late the battery has started to go and only lasting a few days without charge.

Ive been using my Garmin edge 25 for a good year and unfortunately the battery is struggling to last on my longer rides.
Overall its been good, but does get a little temperamental from time to time when uploading my rides.
Looking at the other offerings that garmin sell they do come in quite...
I have a Garmin Edge 25 and think it`s a great wee unit, it`s never let me down and gives me everything I want. The problem is with me and my failing eyes!

I have started using a Garmin Edge 820 but I'm having issues with the live track.
In my IOS Bluetooth I see:
The top one doesn't seem to auto connect so I think this is the issue with my live track failing?
