- Buying my first Garmin,need advice please.
Hi,Posted 4 years ago
im thinking of buying a Garmin EDGE 605 Bike GPS second hand for £100 but ive never had a gps before and want to know if this is the right choice.Is this a fair price or should i get it down more?I mountain bike in the peaks mainly and the odd trail centre so it might get a bit of hammer to be fair as i do take some heavy falls now and again so dont want a expensive one.Is this version easy to use,can i use it with strava,and can i upload off road mountain bike routes and are they easy to follow.thanksjmckeeMember
Quick search on the forum and you’ll find lots about the 705, 800 and the 501 or 801. 705 is getting old but still very good and you’ll pick up for good money on eBay. If you need maps then it’s the 800 or 801 but if not I’d go for the 500 series. As the 5/801 series are just out you won’t get a bargain and personally I see little to make me upgrade from an earlier model.Posted 4 years ago
605 – never even looked at it but do a quick search and if there aren’t lots of cyclists here using it then I’d avoid.
