Day 3 with the Garmin Edge 800

Since getting the Garmin from Garmin I haven't changed the screens and just kept them on the factory settings.

Today I decide to alter them. Changing to suit your tastes and what information you'd like displayed takes seconds and is a great way to makes thing bespoke to your tastes.

On one page I opted for 8 sections. I liked this a lot but might change the 'Accuracy' for something else tomorrow.

You have the option of creating 5 pages, all displaying whatever you decide. I made page 2 only have five sections.

One of the things I have really liked about the Garmin 800 is how easy it is to use. It is very intuitive and (to my shame) I have not consulted the instruction manual once since getting it. If I needed advice on how to use or customise it, there are dozens of high quality videos on YouTube to view at your leisure.

As I wrote yesterday I am liking this 800 too much for my liking. I have seen other bike computers, navigation devices but to these eyes, they cannot really hold a candle to this Garmin.
