So, not the usual kind of device I post about but while looking for Edge 820 evidence this morning I found this on the FCC website which is clearly a GPSMap 66s (It’s orange, so must be the s variant). I’ve no idea what they may have changed – it still looks identical to the… Read Article →
We may be close to a new toy, or this may be a fake. No idea why anyone would put this much effort in for a fake so fingers crossed! Don’t see a card slot though… link to video The format is certainly what we’ve been expecting for an Edge 820. It’s roughly the size… Read Article →

This is it kids, this time I’m almost probably certain they might release a new bike computer… For what it’s… Read Article →
