Has anyone tried the new Garmin Edge 800?
I’m getting pretty frustrated with my 605. I bought it so I could use it to map out and ride new routes with turn by turn navigation. So far it’s been hit or miss. Some courses/tracks/whatever load fine and work fine. I’ve had some amazing rides in the middle of nowhere on roads I’ve never seen. Other times it loads half a loop or less, takes me in all sorts of wrong directions and often down a side road and then back out to the route.
I never download loops I’ve already ridden, so I don’t care much about that feature.
Anyone have any tips or tricks for this? I can’t believe an $80 car GPS could do so much so quickly, and this thing can’t do the same.
I should note, I do not have the CityNavigator map. I’m using an opensource alternative. Has anyone used both and does it make a big difference?
Also, I’m using RideWithGPS.com to draw my rides. MUCH, much better interface than MapMyRide (one of the worst web sites I’ve ever seen, IMO).
