Do you really find it so "bad"? I'm deciding to buy one and this is my only fear buying 510. What do you think - should I go for 500?
I'm used to it now, it still isn't great but that is the nature of a touch screen. When I first went from the 705 to 800 I didn't think that I was going to be able to use it, but I had already sold my 705 so stuck with the 800.

I plan to buy one when my current Edge 500 has a significantly depleted battery life *and* it can no longer be refurbished *and* Garmin improves the system so that it does not rely upon a mobile phone's network in order to enable tracking.



Yes that pretty much sums it up... no quantum leap..

Yes I got my Edge 810 Wednesday morning in the mail. I'm really happy, and especially for auto upload works super well.

Had an 810 for a week. Essentially the same as the 800, with a few interface changes. The android app doesn't work, and it turn off the device as soon as you start it up. I got it to work first time, then not since.

It's not even beta testing this time, more like releasing an alpha version to the public.

Any comments on the live tracking feature: how fast does it eat the iphone battery during the rides etc.?

I'm cycling home from work, a trip of 25 minutes and my iPhone 4S used 4% battery. I did not notice how much power my 810 used.

My 810 turned up today :D it seems to be a lot more responsive than the old 800.
