" I've had many of the Garmin's on my bike over the years: VistaCx, VistaHCx, Edge 205 and Edge 705 and they have never had everything I needed. Vista is a great touring device with good maps and elevation screen, but the Edge 205 and 705 were great bike computers but the lack of elevation screen and poor map rendering on the 705 were severe limitations. The Edge 800 however has it all. Good map rendering - clear and clutterfree, excellent bike computer with loads of display fields available, good elevation screen and top class heart beat and cadence. Even the calorie counting is now accurate if I use the heart monitor. Now I only need one GPS instead of carrying 2 as I have sometimes been doing! Garmin could improve the number and syncing of waypoints with the PC, this remains not all that efficient. "
Pros: Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight, Versatile
Cons: Expensive

What exactly is the basemap? And what region does it cover?

Basemap seems to be major roads many places in the world, I've used US and Europe but there was nothing on Martinique. It's no use for navigation you need to buy a real map like city navigator.
