    Garmin 800 Question

    I see that I can buy a "basic" 800. Does this come with maps or are these purchased separately?
    Thanks!

    It comes with an extremely minimal base map. To make full use of the 800, you also need to purchase a mapset.
    Knows the weight of my bike to the nearest 10 pounds.

    Or use a free map from openstreetmap.org It took several hours to download the entire 3.1GB North American map to the micro SD card, but once it was done it worked like a charm!
