- ADVANCE ;-) warning PSA: Garmin Etrex 20 will be an Amazon lightning deal
and will start at 2:02pm today.
Edge 500 was 89.99 yesterday, way cheaper than GARMIN30 discount, and last year the Etrex20 was a similar price in a black friday/lightning deal. Great bit of kit, not cycle-specific so doesnt talk to HRMs or cadence meters and is bulkier as its designed to be handheld (and runs on AAs) but v happy with mine.
Not activated yet (its currently £127), but given when I posted the Edge500 it only had about 5 minutes warning thought I’d get in early.
when the deal is active it should tell you in the blue right-hand box “also available as a lightning deal”.Posted 4 years agonukeSubscriber
Got one for that price last year on Amazon. Then bought a sim with 1:50k OS maps off the Classifieds. I’m very happy with it…Easy to use, good battery life (Plus can always take spare AA batteries if necessary), auto creates a GPX for uploading to Strava/etc. Only minor issue is its very slow when browsing/scrolling the mapsPosted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
Amazon have the Sennheiser HD-25 Amperior headphones on Lightning offer at 7pm t’night, The basic HD25 is a firm fav of mine for dj’ing and i’ve been using my old pair for over 15yrs, if this updated model have a decent discount i could be hitting the buy button, they also come with an inline control for Apple devices and with the lower impedance they’ll be a doddle to drive from mobile devices.
Just bought myself a set of Bowers & Wilkins P3 for mobile use a few weeks ago but headphones are like bikes……. N+1 and all that eh? 😀Posted 4 years ago
this is back on as a lightning deal again at £84.99 so they obviously didnt shift that many last time!

yes – displays speed, distance, average, max etc etc, when you upload it it’ll give you height gain/loss etc too.
Edge series more bike-specific and the 500 will be a similar price in the lightning deal. What the Etrex gives away in cycle-specific features (talking to HRM/Cadence, training programs etc) it gains in colour mapping and route guiding.Posted 4 years ago
theyve rotated garmins in the lightning deals with edge 500 and Etrex both appearing twice that I know of and the 800 Performance at least once, and the sales are still running so one may appear again. I assume if you click on the “waiting list” it emails you when the deal is live again, as the Nikon 5100 sold out in 15 seconds 😯Posted 4 years agoandylMember
nabbed one. I figured it wasn’t really worth £90 extra for a compass and altimeter as I can tell which way I am pointing and roughly how high I am from the map and if I really need a compass I’ll get a keyring one!
Orange looks more spottable if you lose it somewhere too.Posted 4 years agopheadMember
I wrote a guide to diy’ing maps last time this came up, should still work but the firmware may be an older copy now.Posted 4 years ago
