Garmin Edge 800

Yesterday, Garmin recalled a crap load of devices.  Today, they’ve announced a new GPS built specifically for cyclist, the Edge 800.

Apparently, it combines the best traits of the Edge 705 and 500, but adds a 2.6-inch touchscreen and slimmer body.  Much like all of Garmin’s GPS units for outdoor activity you can tracks speed, altitude, distance and more.  New to this device is Garmin’s Basecamp, which allows you to survey the terrain, view elevation changes and plan your route.  Also included is Garmin’s Connect software which lets you connect your routes and experiences with other Garmin uses at their online portal.

Price?  $450.
