I was wondering if anyone uses an Edge 705 (or any garmin gps for that matter) here in the NW? I am thinking about getting one, but want to know if anyone has had any problems with them and the weather. Specifically, on overcast winter days does it get good reception? Also, how about using them in the rain here? Any other problems?
I've only had one issue, so take this with a huge grain of salt. On my ride to work this past Monday, I was in thick, pea-soup type fog and the % grade indicator stopped functioning. On the afternoon ride home, it was clear and the indicator was working again. Really uncertain if the fog was to blame - who knows, but other than that one instance, the unit has been brilliant.
Awesome, thanks for all the input. Looks like ill be getting myself a new toy! However, anyone have any experience or preference with refurbished vs. new? Its hard to pass up these on ebay for $358 that have cadence included.
