      excellent unit

      This amazing little device has helped me keep an accurate track of my mileage in such an easy way! I've been using my Garmin Edge 200 for a few weeks now, and I still can't believe how easy and useful it has become. Setup was pretty simple. I took the GPS out of the box, and while it was charging, set up the mount on my bike. The instructions were a little light, so I had to pull up a video online to show me how to do it correctly. Once I figured it out, I had the mount on my bike in under a minute. It fit nicely on the stem of my road bike, and doesn't interfere with any function of the bike. After the unit was charged up, I took my bike out for a spin to test the unit. The unit itself is very easy to setup. There are a few options you might want to customize, like turning auto-pause on and off and what speed you want it to stop at. Once I turned it on outdoors, it only took a few seconds before it picked up my signal and I was ready to go. During the ride, the unit displays the time, distance, current speed, and average speed. This keeps me informed of the important information during my ride to make my workout more effective. The GPS itself is very basic. It has 4 buttons, and all of them are multi-functional. They are large, easy to press, and very responsive. The buttons mainly control the 4 options on the home screen: Courses, ride, history, and settings. The courses option is something you can program into the GPS to race against previous rides to compare times. Ride is where you go to track your current ride. History brings up your previous ride information, and settings controls the couple of options inside the GPS. Transferring data from the GPS to the computer is easy. It requires a GarminConnect account, usb cable, and internet connection. The GPS is recognized by a browser plug-in installed through Garmin, and all you have to do is transfer the rides you want, and it uploads them to your profile. From there, you can see how many rides you've done, your distances, and even the elevation gain during your ride. If you want, you can export the info via a .csv file, and analyze it in a program like excel. The garmin edge 200 is the most basic unit in the edge series, but for me it works very well. It's small, easy to set up, does what I need it to do, and the least expensive. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and will continue using this unit.
