Garmin Edge 810 Bike Computer -

You're probably wondering what the Garmin Edge 810 Bike Computer has that the 800 doesn't. Well, in two words, simplified functionality. Don't expect a supernova of metrics and design, instead Garmin set the bar more at the level of a red dwarf. The 810 retains the touch-screen interface, access to every imaginable exercise metric, and GPS functionality. However, the usage and access to these features has been drastically improved. Garmin has also sprinkled in some impressive social media and smart phone connectivity. Simply put, the 810 is everything that you've been waiting for.

Starting at the screen, Garmin placed a focus on simplifying screen and metrics navigation. The initial start screen prompts you to select the CPU's functionality for your ride, either 'train' or 'race.' To avoid confusion, training mode is presented in Blue, whereas race mode is presented in Red. Additionally, this screen enables you to select the bike profile that you'll be riding -- mountain, road, cyclocross, or even unicycle if you're savvy. Once these selections have been made, you simply touch the ride button, and the screen moves to your race or training page. And of course, this page is customizable for every bike profile in your quiver. So, your ride page will only reflect the data that you deem pertinent to your ride or race. Even more impressive, and a jump away from the corner navigation fumbling of the 800, the 810 allows you to simply swipe the touch-screen from page to page. Also, Garmin designed the screen to operate seamlessly with gloved hands in the cold, in the heat, or even in wet weather.

And as long as we're on the subject of new features, you'll should be ecstatic to hear that the 810 is Bluetooth ready. So, while sport device communication is still handled by ANT+ (say, wireless data transfer from HRMs or powermeters), the Bluetooth technology communicates with your smartphone. And to make matters even easier, the 810 is fluent in either Android or iOS operating systems. So, once you're synced up with your phone, and you've downloaded the Garmin Connect Mobile App, the 810 really comes alive. Essentially, the 810 receives data from your smartphone, like live weather and activity upload. This means that you're able to receive real-time weather conditions, forecasts, and alerts while your phone stays protected. And for activity upload, this hastens the data transfer once you've finished your ride. From any location, this feature allows you to wirelessly upload your ride data to your smartphone, which then uploads it to your Garmin Connect profile online. Accordingly, you can view your profile from the Mobile App, almost eliminating the need to access Garmin Connect from a home computer.

Impressed? Believe us, that's just the tip of the iceberg. With the 810's Live Tracking feature, you have the ability to share your activities in real-time through either email or the social media of your choosing. All that you have to do is invite your coach, friends, or family to follow you on Garmin Connect, and then you're able to send email notifications reminding them to follow your real-time activity, stats, data, and location while you're on the bike. You also have the option to share this information via Facebook or Twitter. But, your adoring public aren't the only ones that can navigate your movements. With either the Mobile App or Garmin connect, you have the ability to peruse rides in your area. Once you find one to your liking, simply select the ride, and then the route is uploaded to the 810 with full GPS navigation capabilities. And whether you're on a designated route, or simply going wherever the road takes you, the map feature permits you to view the area in either topographical or detailed street views. No more getting lost.

Now for the guts. The 810 sees the return of Garmin's ever-popular, Virtual Partner and Virtual Racer training programs. The 810 accepts microSD data cards, and it's capable of storing up to 180 rides on its onboard history. It's rechargeable lithium-ion battery has a life that extends to around 17 hours. Garmin also ensured that the CPU is completely waterproof, and it's also compatible with virtually any ANT+ equipped device. So, mating the 810 to an HRM or powermeter will be a painless affair.

The Garmin Edge 810 Bike Computer is available in the color Black and includes a bike mount, USB cable, AC charger, and a user-manual.

Advice on Map Downloads

I haven't had the 810 very long, but it seems to be great so far. One of the things I am trying to master is following a course which I created on GarminConnect. This is your virtual cue sheet and it solves a tremendous number of problems, at least for me. On they subject of "trying to master"-- there is a tremendous amount of functionality in this device, and I think most people are experiencing a learning curve in optimizing their use of the system-- I've made up my mind that I WILL master it since I believe that it's going to be very much worth it.

You really have to download maps to the 810 for it to provide its greatest value. You can download them from Garmin or other free online sites (just Google it). If you want to keep it really simple, you can buy the pre-loaded maps on a Micro SD card directly from Garmin-- the downside of that is that the SD card Garmin sends you will be full and will not accept additional downloads.

One piece of advice: if you buy your own Micro SD memory card to enable you to install a number of maps on the card rather than buying the pre-loaded map card from Garmin, be aware that the first 50% of the time on the progress bar is for downloading to a temporary file on your computer, while the second "50%" is for installing the file to the Micro SD card. I have fast download speed from the internet and was able to cover the first 50% of the progress bar in under 10 minutes. However, the process of my system installing the map to the SD Card took probably 6-7 hours. Be aware that the progress bar from GarminConnect gives wildly inaccurate "time remaining" indications which might make you think that the transfer to the card has stalled. What you need to know is that the second half of the process is tremendously slow-- if the "percentage complete" indication makes progress at 1% per 30 minutes or better, consider that the transfer from your computer to the card is proceeding correctly.

I have used the Garmin Edge 800 for a little over 2 years. It developed a problem and being that it was out of warranty, I had to send back to get a refurbished unit for $100. I decided to upgrade to the Edge 810 while I waited for my refurb unit.
The good:
Easy to set up bike profiles (TT bike, road bike, MTB with different sensors on each)
Easy to set up activity profiles (training, race, even have a kayak profile)
Easy to set up custom screens displaying the data you want
Gets GPS lock even faster than the already fast Edge 800
Bluetooth connectivity to phone is the biggest upgrade. I can upload workouts immediately without connecting to computer. You can also stream your ride using the Garmin Connect app on your phone. A great way to let someone know where you are, especially in case of an accident.
The ability to create a course on the Garmin Connect site and then transfer it to the phone without hooking up to computer is also an excellent feature.
The bad:
Battery life isn't what the Edge 800 was, although I have certainly had it last a lot longer than 5 hours mentioned in a previous review. I have used it up to 10 hours and it hadn't died but was in the low teens on charge percentage.
There are intermittent connection losses with my Ant+ power meters. All will be fine and then suddenly my power and cadence drops to 0 for 5 seconds or so. Then power shoots up really high (although my output has not changed) and it all starts working again. I think it pretty much averages itself out so it doesn't matter much unless you are doing short intervals. The Edge 800 did not have this issue.
Overall, I think this was a solid upgrade. I would not have done it if I hadn't had problems with my Edge 800. After 2.5 years of use in all conditions, I was willing to overlook the $100 to get a refurbished unit. If making a decision between the 800 and 810 I would chose the 810 based on bluetooth alone.

I have to say I am a Garmin junkie and love the units I have had over the years. I am on my 4th unit (different model) the 810 with HRM. As in past units this unit does more than most folks care to have analyzed for sure. But if you want an all inclusive unit to have the capability to do anything you care to do in cycling this unit can do it. The only complaint I have is the unit can at times be hard to read if the sunlight hits it at a certain angle. You also have to hit the buttons to move from screen to screen deliberately. Not a hard tap but it is not very sensitive. Maybe a good thing or not. The unit pairs well on Garmin Connect via Bluetooth and your phone to send your ride to those you wish to watch live! I do this routinely so my wife can monitor my rides if riding solo. This unit is lightweight as well so the weight weenies have nothing to fear. I do highly suggest getting the tacky rubber housing for the unit to protect it from drops and inadverdent impact. Also you can use course creator online and upload to the unit and enable turn by turn directions to ride unfamiliar roads. So if you want an al inclusive unit to record all pertinent information for hours of recap you need the Edge 810.

Simple upgrade from the Garmin 800

I have been using Garmin for several years. I love the brand and generally have nothing to say about the products. I had the general electronic issues with them, freezing up, blinking out and loosing power early however Garmin easily supports their products one way or the other. REI also supports their products as well. With that being said, I would get the product. If you ride in foreign places with a diversity of groups in terrain that might challenge your rides, this product is for you. Keep in mind, like all GPSs they don't really record bike paths and of road bikeways in general so don't look forward to getting directions home on your popular bike paths. All in all I like the product but considering the fact that you have to purchase maps software for this product, plan on spending another 75 to 100 bucks to make this product sing. Also much advised is the advanced bar mount. The mount that comes with the GPS is weak and often times puts your praised product right in the way of your knees, which makes knocking it off your bike a hard reality.
Get it and have fun, just remember to add another $140 to get this product working as advertised.

Nice upgrade

I upgraded from an Edge 800, mostly because I found a buyer for my 800 and I am a total "gadget geek." I like the upgrades in software. The home screen is much easier to use particularly the way you change your bike/equipment. The auto-upload isn't as nice as I had hoped and i find that the activity tracker can really suck up your phone's battery. This is especially true if you ride in areas that have spotty cell reception. I was hoping the bluetooth connect would work with my desktop so I could get around the cable, but not to be. It only works with the phone app.
Otherwise it is very similar to the 800. A nice upgrade, but unless the phone app is a big deal for you and/or you get a really good price for your older 800, wait.
But if you have the older 605/705 it will be a real nice upgrade and well worth the $50 or so upgrade from a new 800 to the newer 810
It also seems to be faster and a bit more accurate than the 800, but not by a lot.
I'm happy with the upgrade and would recommend as an upgrade from anything but a newish 800.

Good computer

I really like the 810 it is a little bulky but I'm sure I'll get used to it. The first one I got had a mystery message requiring an update when I tried to download the update it never would load it. Garmin customer service was great and replaced the unit without much trouble at all. I like the option of new maps to add the rail trail maps will be added to a micro sd card soon.

Great Product.

I have been using this product for about 3 weeks. I've never owned a Garmin previously, so am still trying to learn what it can do. Just recently ordered City Navigator Maps and a SD Card, so I haven't tried out the turn-by-turn navi, but I hope that it works. The Live tracking option when paired with a smartphone is very cool!

Neutral Reviews:

Good and bad. The speed in which this unit connects to speed, cadence and heart rate sensors is amazing compared to what I have used in the past to include other Garmin units. It connected to my phone via Bluetooth easily. The speed it connects to the satellites is pretty amazing as well. All in all, a fairly easy to use unit though I have not figured out if you can modified the data display screen yet in terms of adding or removing boxes of data which is annoying. Its not completely intuitive in my opinion.
The bad, the price and what you get. This is $500 which is as expensive as most high end phones you might buy without a contract. This unit isnt nearly as complicated or stuffed with as many features as a phone but, I will not ride with my phone mounted on my bike and my phone currently doesnt connect to the sensors. The screen is usable but there is a learning curve with it. Dont expect it to act like your phones screen. Also, while the screen does what it needs to, at this price I think it should be higher definition. Now for the REALLY bad, you wont get anywhere close to 13 hours out of the battery. Using it as you would in most outside situations, meaning Bluetooth on, screen at maximum brightness etc... youll get about 5 hours if you are lucky. Its probably fine for what most people will do but its the idea that Garmin would KNOWINGLY mislead people about this units battery life that annoys me. I want one GPS unit for all outside activities I do. Is it too much to ask to get a unit like this to work for hiking and golf for no additional cost? No its really not. Not when phones can do the same these days for less money. Also, 40 bucks for a piece of plastic to mount this unit the way it NEEDS to be mounted to make it the most useful it can be? Seriously Garmin, you are going to nickel and dime people like this? I wont be sorry to see you go when phones finally do everything.

810 is ok. Nothing spectacular!

I had the 500 which is a great little GPS unit but no mapping.
Went out and purchased the 810 thinking the maps and everything would make it a useable GPS unit while on the bike.

My findings so far:
1) 810 not worth the extra money over 800 or even the 500.
2) The 810 map display is substandard at best compared to what I would expect. It may know the road I'm on but it sure doesn't show the road on the map or where the road is going.
3) I have had more lost signals with 810 in a month then I had with the 500 that was used for 1 year.

I made a mistake in purchasing the 810 when I already had the 500.
Disappointed and should have looked for reviews before buying as I have noticed that I am not the only one that is disappointed.

Garmin needs to step up their game when they make a model number change.
