Barely usable, needs a major firmware fix
At the moment the device is barely usable. The screen is at time unresponsive or too responsive (rain drops can ghost press the screen). Routing is slow.
I have faith Garmin will fix the issues over the winter. When that happens I will update my review accordingly.

Best cycling GPS
I was waiting for Garmin to refresh Edge 800 line and Edge 820 finally arrived! No disappointment from day one! Cpu is fast to load maps, enough internal space to upload NA set of maps and keep EU maps In the same folder. Screen is bright and crisp. I used it in Europe in Pyrenees and in Canada now. Very satisfied!

Needs more software improvements
This is a compact version of the Edge 1000/520, its size is just about all its features like touchscreen,group track, emergency text etc are excellent, the only issue/s i encountered is the software side, the unit seems to lagged when being swiped to the next page, it randomly turns off and on while in use.. Maybe Garmin should look and improved its Software via updates to make the all Edge 820's features function the way it should be and also, if you intend to use this outside of Europe, you need to install the Map from your region.

Fantastic cycling GPS
First of all I can't say enough wonderful things about ribble cycling. I live in California, USA and I purchased my Garmin edge 820 online (for the obvious reason). The price is great.
I have used the edge 820 for about 320 kilometers so far. Easy to use and gps is fairly accurate.
This is an upgrade from edge 500, so the touch screen future is awesome. The best future that I like the most is the auto load to strava. I no longer have to wait for hours until I get to my computer to load my rides. The mapping, I have yet to use but I would ansolutely recommend this product and ribble cycling to all my cycling buddies.

Does the Map included North America(Canada) or it still need to be installed?
Thanks for your query.
Base maps for Europe are included. Maps for other territories can be downloaded from a variety of sources.
Can I order Garmin 820 or 1000 with US maps installed? Thx.
Thanks for getting in touch.
I am afraid we are not able to upload maps to a unit before shipping. You can however download maps yourself and upload them once the item is received.
Is there a cost to get the US maps?
Also, how long does it take to ship to US?
Thanks for you inquiry.
Yes there will be a cost to download these but it is not something we can advise you on sorry. All relevant information can be accessed through the Garmin website;
Is it compatible with a Wahoo Blue SC cadence sensor?
Thanks for your question.
We do not have experience with the Wahoo cadence sensor, however the Garmin can be paired with a bluetooth device, so these should be compatible. However, we would recommend contacting them to confirm this.
