My Garmin Edge 800 died yesterday, keeping up the [url=<a href="http://www.aushiker.com/2007/11/garmin-edge-305/]Garmin" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link added by VigLink" class="vglnk">http://www.aushiker.com/2007/11/garmin-edge-305/]Garmin</a> tradition of durability[/url]. Was working fine on the ride to the start of the Audax ride. Stopped the timer, reset the ride data in preparation for the 200 and next thing I noticed that the Edge had shut down and was trying to re-boot. Would only get as far as the "loading map" screen. Rode the 200 sans technology. Was an interesting change
Managed to get it to do a factory reset after a few attempts. That made no difference. Removing the SD card made difference. Letting the battery go flat and then trying it connected to the computer made no difference.
Off it goes to Rob at Highly Tuned Athletes for Garmin to sort. Thankfully the warranty does not run out till early November.
The same thing has happened to my Edge 800, along with a few other complaints (like the cadence not displaying on the unit every now and then). Same troubleshooting was done with the same results. After a few emails and phone calls to Garmin and after contacting Rob he was able to get a response from Garmin for me. They are now replacing the unit. Sending it off tomorrow.
