If your first purchase from BTD, you can likely get an extra 10% off with the email signup. It usually works on the Garmins surprisingly. You'll also get some VIP points for future purchase.

And, if you're out for the day riding, you'll likely have a dead phone battery part way through.

What a retarded reply. It's pretty obvious you don't ride often. Most people with this type of Garmin will also run a heart rate monitor, cadence sensor, and some will pair a power meter. You can't pair these items to your smart phone, smart guy.

How do you get the coupon? I just signed up but just got a welcome email. Do you get a separate email with a code? Thanks.

I wish Garmin would cut the crap and just install City Navigator with lifetime updates on all models, just like they basically do for most of their car GPS units (which are great).

I have an older Edge 705 and had to pay like $70 to get the street-level mapping. I see some sellers on Ebay offering the software for less than 20 bucks, but not sure if it will easily work (if at all) on this model. Garmin has traditionally made it so you could only use the maps with one device, and some sellers just pull the SD cards from other devices. Someone might be able to speak to this with a bit more knowledge, because I'd like to get this if I can just get cheap maps.

Don't quite remember 100% but it may have been a separate email. I'm pretty sure I received it fairly quickly though.

This works quite well for my 810. Doesn't get much more cheap than free.

Some of us ride where there is no cellular reception and the rides last longer than an iPhone battery.

If you don't see the value in a bike computer like this, move along and don't thread This is a good price for this device brand new.

I used phone apps for recording rides and a basic $20 bike computer for real time speed/mileage for two years before getting anything more significant. I tried Wahoo Fitness stuff too, which integrates with your phone for half the price of , but the device was always having connectivity issues. And then there is the fact that most phone batteries more than a few months old have a hard time keeping a phone going plus constant GPS and Bluetooth device connections. I've got BT heart rate monitor and bike speed/cadence, both BT 4.0 compatible for battery efficiency, and my phone was pretty much dead at the end of a 5 hour ride. 7 hour century ride? Oops...lost the last 20-30 miles. I finally "splurged" on a Garmin last fall and got the Edge 520. Pretty close to this 810, about he same price, fewer mapping features but perhaps a better fit for many.

Many people dont need a bike computer beyond $20-40 to ensure you have real time info in front of you. Speed, distance and time. Apps will work okay too for many, depending on what you want out of them, for recording your rides. I loved RidewithGPS. Most every efficient and collected all the data I wanted. But now with a Garmin I have none of the hassles, not worried about my phone battery, and even more data for my rides with a single device. It was worth it to me, and that is what matters.

Strava is using the gps; cell service not required. This is a cool gps tho.

I ride with both my cell phone and my 810. With my 810, i can customize my screen to give me all the information relevant to my needs. I like looking down to see my speed, cadence, average speed, etc without having to swipe a screen to turn it on. Battery life on a bike computer is much better than a phone too. Plus, all I need to do is save my ride at the end and it is automatically uploaded to Strava.

There really isn't a comparison between an 810 and a smart phone.

just ride for the joy and the workout. study your route before. if you get lost enjoy the scenery, ask for directions, and add a few miles to the trip. with the money you saved enjoy a six pack at the end
