Garmin 800 replacement
Posted24 December 2015

Age : Over 65
Interest : Road Cyclist
Level : Regular
Gender : Male
" Purchased the Joule GPS+ to replace my Garmin 800 as the Garmin was not giving the correct Watts readings from the Powertap P1 pedals. Joule does everything that I expected the Garmin to do but the mapping is not as good and the screen is smaller but how much time should you spend looking at the screen when you are riding. It has lots of metrics that can be displayed on the screens that are available. "

" Purchased this strap to replace the one supplied with Garmin Edge 800 as the original was giving huge spikes in the readings and researching through various forums this strap was recommended, had to modify the rubber shoulders around the popper fixings as the transmitter would not fit, it now works a treat, no more unusual heart rate readings. "
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Adjustable

" Having used the Edge 705 for the past three years I decided to replace it with the 800, it is a much better unit with more timer pages, better satellite response and quicker download to computer, also the touch screen makes it easier to use when riding and the screen is easier to read. Base map is useless as was the 705, additional maps are a must, the user manual needs to be improved for the first time user, but otherwise a very good product. "

Charging when docked

Does the Edge 800 (and others in the range) charge via the USB docked connection, or only via the wallwart?

A USB charging connection would be far more versatile, and would minimise what I need to carry for overnights.
It will charge when docked with your computer

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

The base map is pre-loaded on the unit which is very basic and does not contain all the roads, you need to purchase additional maps or download free maps from openmtbmaps.org, these need to be loaded onto a micro SD card and inserted in the card slot on the unit.
