Reviews around size (5.00 of 5)

  • Also like the size - doesn't overwhelm your handlebars like larger bike computers
  • I like the unit size and function, admittedly I am using it on a mountain bike, but I have found the accuracy to be off, on a 6-10 mile ride, it will read typicly .5-1 mile shorter than the app on my phone or another computer

Reviews around advertise (5.00 of 5)

  • Works as advertised, only complaint is short battery life
  • This works as advertised and is a good alternative for those needing basic information about their rides.
  • It works as advertised except for that major deal-breaker: the short battery life

Reviews around turn (5.00 of 5)

  • The Edge 25 by itself will show you totals and averages on screen, as well as turn by turn directions of pre-loaded routes, courses, etc
  • I did map out a course in Garmin connect on roads I was not at all familiar with and the turn-by-turn prompts that popped up while I was riding easily got me to my destination and backThere is only so much on screen data I can consume while trying to pedal at 95rpm and not get hit by cars
  • Strava* Uses common Garmin quarter turn mount, compatible with 3rd party
  • light+ Bluetooth upload to Garmin Connect and Strava+ GPS seems pretty accurate+ Turn-by-turn course directions+ Phone call Caller

Reviews around display (5.00 of 5)

  • If you're looking for a fancy display with turn-by-turn directions, you may want to upgrade to the more expensive 800-series
  • I enjoy this unit because of it's size, clear display and menus, and because it is very simple yet offers GPS course routing
  • Display was clear and made it easy to see total time, total distance and current speed at a glance, which was all I wanted

Reviews around speed (5.00 of 5)

  • Well, at least you get speed, distance, and an optional course map based on GPS, but that's it
  • Phone notifications (text and call)- Measures just 40x42x17mm and weighs 30g including its mountThe Edge 25 provides all the basic metrics you'd expect, i.e. distance, speed, elapsed time and time of day, as well as average speed, estimated calories, elevation, and total ascent
  • Anyone else getting satisfactory speed and distance with Edge 25?
  • It's a great deal for someone just looking to ride and see their mileage, speed and things like that
  • And it didn't show me riding through houses or in people's lawns every time I went around a turn and a decent speed.

Reviews around unit (4.59 of 5)

  • I do not know if I had a defective unit or if this is just another issue with firmware 2.5
  • But, all in all, this is a nice little unit and reasonably priced.
  • I enjoy this unit because of it's size, clear display and menus, and because it is very simple yet offers GPS course routing
  • That said, my original review still stands even though I do think that this is a fantastic little unit when it is working correctly
  • In terms of GPS performance, the unit acquires satellites super quickly, within a second of turning on the unit, even when indoors

Reviews around edge (4.26 of 5)

  • The Edge 25 also lacks a barometric altimeter
  • My Edge 25 typically reads about 20% more altitude gain than my friends 520 over the same ride.
  • I have found that the Edge 25 does not actually support segment prompts.
  • In conclusion, I think the Edge 25 is perfect for anyone doing rides on the shorter side (less than 7 hours)
  • Although, good in concept the edge 25 is complete junk

Reviews around price (4.16 of 5)

  • I bought the Edge 25 because it was a good price point, and, according to the preliminary reviews, it had all the features I wanted
  • But, all in all, this is a nice little unit and reasonably priced.
  • Was looking for a GPS cyclometer at a reasonable price and the Garmin Edge 20 definitely meets my needs.
  • With the relatively cheaper price, the device sacrifices some of the things I had expected it to perform

Reviews around device (3.95 of 5)

  • For my rides so far, the device itself has just worked and given me the basic information I need
  • And this is a huge disappointment when they go ride and the device is dead
  • This device fails to acquire GPS signal on 50% of my bike rides - even on clear, sunny days
  • I once again recommend this device and I've bumped up my score to reflect that
  • Other than that missing, it's a good device to record your mileage.

Reviews around gps (3.95 of 5)

  • We have a tight twisty trail here... even the better GPS units (actually better and cheap show about the same) show it at about 5.2 to 5.4... it's actually 7.1 ---
  • Great bike GPS if you don't need to connect to any other sensors or Bluetooth devices.
  • All in all its a great little gps computer and a tremendous value.
  • A matter of time before the band's would fail and the gps could be lost
  • Nice compact gps, wish it could be charged from 110vac.

Reviews around thing (3.34 of 5)

  • Great product; not a thing wrong... but buy the wireless version!
  • Great product; not a thing wrong... but buy the wireless version!
  • One of the great things about this unit versus the Edge 500 is the Bluetooth connection for automatic uploads to Garmin Connect and Strava when you finish your ride
  • No wiring or sensor needed to be install on your bike.- Back-lighting.- Very good bike mounting system (included).Cons:- Not the cheapest thing on Earth
  • The most important thing missing is the ability to put HR into one of the first two screens.

Reviews around computer (3.19 of 5)

  • The GPS functionality is OK, but without sensors, it's a very poor bike computer
  • The Garmin Edge 25 is the bike computer for those who don't need all the fancy features of the more expensive computers (or maybe for those who want all the fancy features, but don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars)
  • So without sensors, it's a very poor bike computer, and with sensors, it's a massive source of frustration.
  • Easy-to-use and not as expensive as other bike computers.
  • All in all its a great little gps computer and a tremendous value.

Reviews around garmin (3.04 of 5)

  • Product has 5 Stars ... seriously this Tiny Garmin is excellent !!
  • Garmin is doing a HUGE disservice to its customers with its stupid "smart interval" feature
  • This garmin edge 25 works exactly how I was wanting it to work
  • Garmins’ Connect portal in theory is pretty cool where all of your device settings and rides are all saved to the cloud (Garmin Connect) – again pretty spiffy in theory.
  • Garmin could offset this problem by providing better configurability.

Reviews around battery life (1.61 of 5)

  • Battery life is good
  • but ok, the real problem is the battery life, it is nothing like advertised, it doesn't last more then 4 hours at most, that make it not relevant for any decent weekly ride
  • Works as advertised, only complaint is short battery life
  • Works as advertised, only complaint is short battery life
  • The final issue (which is a direct result of the form factor) is battery life.
