I have both. Been using the 500 for a little more than a year and just got the 800 a couple months ago. The 500 has most everything that I'd want in a GPS computer. I got the 800 primarily for map routing capability when riding centuries in unfamiliar areas. I wanted the turn-by-turn capabilities. I'm happy with both. The 800 screen does not seem to be a tough as the 500. For as long as I've had and use the 500, the screen is perfect. Somehow, the 800 screen has a small scratch that will not wipe off. It's not "bad", just annoys me because I like to keep my stuff nice.
