" After a week I am well impressed. Bought without software/maps.
These are all available free on the internet. Paired with all my current Ant+ sensors - (I had to move 10m away from my original cycle computer.)
2 bike mounts included (I didn't realise and bought spare).
Silicon case was purchased at same time and has already proved its worth.
Will take several weeks to reach full potential.
Use Shonky maps and download the tracks for Perth WA.
"
Pros: High Quality, Lightweight, Versatile, options

What version is the Edge 800, I have read that there are specific versions for the country you live in?

I'm using the UK version in Australia no problem.
I am using Australian maps downloaded and the usual Garmin software of their site.
It charges by usb so don't worry about the A/C adapter.
