strava etc...destroys the soul.

strava destroys the soul.
And it does...you give it your all on a climb, get a PB and it's still 50% slower than the quick guys
I love my 800 for the same reasons a blobby; there's something a bit zen about balancing, HR, cadence, gears etc. I love to get back from a ride and check my stats because it's an indicator of how far my fitness has come on and consequently, a great motivator.
There are many things that dislike about the 800...enough to put me off Garmin as a company; I'll definitely look elsewhere before buying another GPS and I've ruled out their Vector pedals for this reason. Oh, and price!
Examples? The beep to tell you that you've dropped out of a training zone is the same whether you're too high, too low...or when you're back in the zone! How hard would it have been to have a low beep if you're below the zone, a high beep above it and a quick double beep when entering the zone!
The menu and screen building system is just a **** shambles. I want to build a screen on my 'puter and then drop it on the device. Not dick around in a million sub-menus on something the size of a matchbox.
It's slow to update maps when zooming and the screen resolution is pants. I'll concede that it's adequate, but this is a premium product and needs to be better.
