"I have had 3 pairs of these over the last 6 years. They last on average 2 years before something snaps. But at the price, who cares? They are comfortable and look good and are superb value for money. I suspect that very much more expensive Sunnies might not last much longer..."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight, Versatile, Good Fit

What we've been waiting for
Posted23 June 2009
"We've been waiting for a cycle specific GPS with routing, daylight readable display and long battery life. The Edge 705 manages all of these things and does a pretty good job of it too. The display readability is fine, the battery life is excellent - 12 hours or more of continuous use seems possible. The GPS gets a fix almost instantaneously and holds it well. Routing instructions are clearly shown on the display, accompanied by a good loud beep. The instructions seem pretty good. They can be configured to be bike specific, to work on or off road and to avoid major roads. However I did find them tending to send me off on little roads and indirect routes even when the "avoid major roads" option was switched off. I'd like an option to avoid motorways only and route using all other roads. It also takes a long time to calculate and recalculate routes. These are minor quibbles though. I love it. And I haven't even mentioned the cycle computer, speed , cadence and heart rate functions. And the very neat mountings for TWO bikes..."
Pros: High Quality, Lightweight, Rugged, Versatile
