Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Got the Garmin 810 bundle today. 7 days for shipping. Awesome. One thing to note though, it does NOT include the correct AC adapter for the US. I've already had an adapter from a previous Garmin so it wasn't a big deal to me.

lame, the 500 I just received from wiggle had it, maybe they removed it in the 510/810?

My 810 that came today didn't have it either. You can technically just charge it via usb on a computer.

For those of you the got the 810, did you get a satellite lock at all?

I've successfully loaded the free map following DCRainmaker's blog.. so hopefully will get a lock tomorrow. Right now the time shown on there is Taiwan time.

Oh and charging via computer now. But you should be able to charge using cell phone USB charger too right?

It takes a while to find the satellites the first ride (took about 7 miles for me) but the net time is fast

I will try to mess with mine today. I would imagine the time will correct itself once it finds the gps signal. It's probably taking awhile because it's trying to locate them in UK first and is slowly working its way over. (I'm totally just making that up, I have no idea). I know with the 510, you can go in and look at the gps settings, not sure if you can manually update them with the current location.

here's an update on my 810. couldn't get a lock with the UK basemap. so after installing the freemap of California in, this morning "ta-da" got the GPS lock.

i wonder if it's because of the different basemap that's why it's not locking. but will try that out today and see.

at least i know the 810 works.. so tonight.. time to mount this baby and retire the 9yr old cateye computer i have on there.

@SpeshulEd: hey brother.. no excuses here.. you should start playing with it now.. hahaha J/K.. i know work is more important...

I'm charging right now and downloading the 3.5gb US Map file...however, I might have to wait awhile for it, it says it's going to take a day to download at the office. Will have to see if things pick up tonight at home.

For what its worth, the plug says 5v, 1.0A Max for output, which is the same as the plug for the iphone. So you should be able to use the iphone plug and just plug the usb directly into that for charging.

I've saved a backup of the Garmin Europe map and formatted the card. Will be dumping the free map on that card.

Then all I should have to do is setup my profile/bike profiles and hopefully, I'm good to go.

Pro bike kit sucks: the price was good, but the customer support is ****. They have gone downhill and they aren't climbing out of this anytime soon.

So, for what its worth, I downloaded the most current map from this location... http://daveh.dev.openstreetmap.org/garmin/Lambertus/

...scroll down to the bottom to find the current week's directory, and then the 4000mb/3.5gb file at bottom of the page is the map image. I think these are car routable ones though and not bike ones like you have the option of making from the dcrainmaker link. I was 70th in the queue for that, but got an email last night that my file was ready, so I'm going to try downloading that and see what happens as it should be a "bike routable" file. For what its worth, downloading at home went much faster than work.

I also noticed, that the maps don't have all point's of interest. For example, when I go to look for nearby grocery stores, it's skips the ones down the road and shows the closest one is a walmart. To be honest, that's not that big of a deal for me, I'll make my own POIs.

I got everything up and running last night.

After I got the file, I deleted the beginning text of it, so it was just gmapsupp.img or whatever and then placed it in the "GARMIN" folder on the card. Loaded that in the 810 and the maps loaded after a few seconds.

I took it outside and it worked on finding the satellites. It was taking a long time, so I was messing with other stuff, like synching it with my phone at the same time. I'm not sure if it was just by chance, but immediately after synching with my phone, it acquired the satellites (now, it takes a few seconds after I turn it on to acquire the satellites). I also deleted the basemap, deleted the garmin locations that came preloaded and saved my home location. Other than that, I just set up my bike profile, my user profile, got all my screens the way I want them, and made sure my HRM and speed/cadence sensor were working/synching properly and now I think I'm good to go. I'm trying it out today on my way in to work.

But I'm going to go ahead and say, awesome deal on UK garmin 810 + free US maps = awesome!

It's pretty nice too, I have courses mapped out for my commute, which I loaded this morning. As you approach a turn, it beeps and tells you that you'll need to be turning left/right in a certain distance/time. I know my way to work, but this will be handy when I make longer courses ahead of time. I no longer need to follow the map, as the screen will change and notify me of a turn when I approach it.

I also like the time notice before a turn...it gives me a nice little game of beat the clock.

pretty neat jersey for only $20, I know some of you will not like them because you didn't do the ride but it's a nice jersey to add to the summer collection for cheap http://www.ebay.com/itm/CANNONDALE-G...item4173f7d876

Yeah it is tricky and I know the European sizing can be a lot smaller than normal. I want to get one for myself, but looking at their measurements, I don't even think the L/XL will fit me. I have a 46 inch chest.

Are you saying this company's jerseys, bibshorts and other stuff are of excellent quality?

I've been looking for a decent price on the Pearl Izumi Attack shorts but seems like they're $80 nearly everywhere. I found that Cycle Sports UK has them for $51 shipped to the US. Make sure to select US currency and United States to see price adjust. Never ordered from them before but appears to be reputable from what I searched and you can pay using PayPal. http://www.cyclesportsuk.co.uk/produ...scroll_to_here
