I think this is fantastic price and I think it's the cheapest I've ever seen it. Usually retails at around £95-105. Been looking for something for a GPS for my bike so I'm thinking of picking this up.

Defiantly worth getting then? The GPS looked very basic, and just looked like a line and not like a gps/sat nav with roads on the screen.

I wouldn't rely on this particular model if you're looking for turn-by-turn navigation TBH

Yeh dont expect to use it like a satnav but the gps comes in for importing your rides onto your comp, strava etc and being able to show the route, elevation gain, length etc. Getting a garmin was one of the best things I did for my cycling, saying that I would get one with cadence sesnor

I've just bought a Cateye computer from halfords, just to monitor speed, distance and time, but was hoping to get the Garmin for like a guide so I can use for just ride abouts, as I don't really want to hook up my phone on my bike using google maps.

The Garmin 200 maybe basic but it performs very well, I would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting to keep track of their travels, I paid £70 at Halfords last year and this is the cheapest I've seen this year. Hot for me at this price.

Relatively basic, but excellent piece of kit. Good deal. Pity we're gash at footy or the world would be a lovely place....

I had the Edge 810 and went back to this 200. It's simple but performs solidly, better than a phone GPS and being simple it's not rife with bugs. My Edge 810 crashed mid-race and I lost a lot of data for that event. How much do we really need on-the-go? Critically it tracks average speed, distance and time as well as good elevation data, I highly recommend this.

It has bread crumb trail for directions when used in course mode and is ok, For the money it is a no brainer!

And the battery last ages!!!!!

I paid £107 about 2 years ago (well...£7 as i had a £100 voucher which i put towards it off my work cycle to work scheme),
its a great bit of kit, but can take a while for it's GPS to acquire your position, other than that, i can't fault it.

Great bit of kit. Had to send two back as wouldn't connect to computer after a few uses but the third one still going strong. Heat

Don't buy thinking it's like a car sat nav though

If you are looking for a cheap bike sat nav try the ridewithgps app. Monthly subscription but works wonderfully and you can hear the directions from your jersey pocket. No good for rides longer than 4hrs though as the battery eventually goes.

I bought this last week (from Amazon) and have been out on my bike 3 times with it and love it. Very addictive trying to beat my average mph or fastest mph.

I've been looking at this, really want it !

This is mainly for tracking where you have been, not really for navigation

I bought it in the end, and it should be here with me tomorrow. I look forward to trying it out

Excellent bit of kit. Had mine for 7 months now, use it on the bike and walking. Only ever charged it once from the mains, usually tops up to 100% from the USB whilst connected to the PC

I paid 90 for this a year ago. It is great at what it does. The display is excellent and displays distance, speed plus a selection of average speed, calories or vert. I haven't used the courses mode as a map yet, but I hear it is basic but good enough.

The only downside to it is that it doesn't support a heart rate monitor so I ended up buying a forerunner. The forerunner is better for running and you can get the HR strap for it, but it doesn't display speed like the 200. I generally ended up with the 200 on the bars of the bike giving me useful info and then use the forerunner for upload to Strava or just for running.

Was looking to buy this yesterday but now they are up to £80.. missed out

Brilliant piece of kit, one of those gadgets you will not regret buying. I have used mine for navigation as well tracking where I have ridden, its a very basic in terms of telling you where to go, but still reassuring and excellent back up on a 200km AUDAX (so long as you put the correct route in.....!) , so would agree primarily a device recording where you have ridden and how fast etc. but the navigation part is useful as long as you are not expecting a full on sat nav,

Also taken it on walks as nice to see how many miles and height you have covered at the end of a day.

Advantages are it very light and small, will last 12hrs plus off a single charge, you can "race" against yourself on routes which is a great training incentive, its very reliable and has never crashed and is also very simple to use because its so basic.

Its also portable so if you ride more than 1 bike it takes seconds to swop the cradle onto another bike.

If you want a performance bundle this is a far, far better deal. Navigation is much better as well.
