I have. Second hand Garmin screen went blank. Still under warranty, sent with a copy of the original purchaser's receipt and had a replacement unit within a week.

I like my 800 but support and back up are crap, buy a premium hr strap and see how far you get when it fails and it will!! If you live in America its a different story.

I have...
Sent my Edge 705 back as the small wand the rubber was splitting on it creating water entry point. 3 weeks for them to replace it! And then to boot my city navigator wouldn't work with it as it was another unit. Called them up and they couldn't understand what was going on. Call US Garmin and I was fixed in 5 mins....

thanks again everyone, I went with the 200... found it for $129 at a lbs, it really came down to what I could & couldn't spend at the mo - wedding in 8 weeks, and honeymoon mid year!

Thanks all for the advice
