  • Garmin's Edge 810 is a great GPS device for recording and analysing data from bike rides. It can map your routes, as well as tell you your speed, elevation changes, and even how hot it was that day. It's lots of fun to use, especially when you hook it up to a smartphone, but the interface on the device itself could stand to be a little more intuitive.


  • With the 810, Garmin is introducing smartphone connectivity and utility, with features including live tracking, real-time weather, and wireless data transfers. The Edge 810 is also loaded with other capabilities, such as wireless heart rate monitor support, customizable display, and turn-by-turn directions from installed maps. If you're looking for the ultimate in bike computers, the 810 is it.

  • The Nuvi 3597LMTHD continues to refine Garmin's brand of navigation with premium design and one of the best interfaces in the business.


  • Garmin has done it again with the nÃ?¼vi 3597LMTHD, a high-end portable GPS device that continues to set the bar for the genre. The question is whether there's a market for pricey in-car navigation systems these days.


  • Overall the GPS did a good job at doing what it is designed to do. It has an easy-to-navigate interface that's made even easier to use by voice commands. Finding destinations using the search feature was easy and accurate. The Nuvi always chose the quickest, most logical routes and displayed accurate traffic data. Despite all that, we do cringe at the $350 retail price tag.


  • The new Garmin Edge 510 isn't exactly the comprehensive overhaul some people were expecting, and aside from the connectivity aspects we don't see much reason for current Edge 500 owners to switch unless they're regularly moving the unit between multiple bikes and really want different screens for each. We're also a little disappointed in the touchscreen's legibility in bright sunlight.


  • Very clever GPS bike computer that's relatively easy to use, but only worth the price hike over the Edge 500 if you're going to use alongside a smartphone


  • To put this review into context, we're comparing the Garmin Edge 510 to is its predecessor, the Edge 500. There are so many new features and functions to talk about, but did we find them useful? Yes, there's no doubt that Garmin makes remarkable devices that has added a new dimension to our riding. If you already have a Garmin 500 and it's still in good condition, it's probably not worth the upgrade. What you're essentially getting with the Edge 510 over the 500 is LiveTrack, which is in the early stages of something that could be great.


  • The Garmin Approach S3 is the touch screen GPS golf timepiece that gives simple, instant and precise calculations of the course.


  • The Garmin S3 Approach is a wonderful piece of kit. Easy to use, immediate feedback, tonnes of different features, no fees or subscriptions required and slick looks.


  • The S3 is more convenient than the standard GPS, easy to use regardless of the weather, better than most in the rain and doubles up for casual wear. Easy functionality with state of the art accuracy that can benefit both the casual and serious golfer. Compared to other GPS and rangefinders it's fairly priced at £279 comes free of any annual subscriptions and is pre-loaded with 27,000 courses worldwide.


  • Expensive, but for the enthusiastic amateur it's a superb training tool and round recorder.


  • The SkyCaddie SGX is a very accurate and easy to use golf GPS unit. Very bright LED screen is easy to read even in bright sunlight. Extensive course library (with membership). HoleVue technology adjusts perspective as golfer approaches green. Battery life could use a tweak.


  • The unit is for the serious golfer who is ready to take their game to the next level and needs a device that has all the features an avid golfer would need in a GPS device.

    The SGX is not for the 2-3 round per year golfer who will not utilize all its amazing features and spend premium dinero and not use all the functions.
