Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I simply cannot get the bluetooth to reconnect. I can pair without problem, but the next morning, when the 830 powers back on, the connection is lost. The blue tooth connectivity is actually worse than my old 520. It's not too bad... who really wants to be bothered by text messages on a ride anyway? Ahhh, but I do miss getting accurate weather (can't get weather forecast without phone connection). I'm just a little pissed it doesn't work well. Maybe at the next software update it will be fixed? On the other hand, the wifi connectivity is seamless. The bottom line is if I end my ride anywhere other than my house, I will need to wait until I get home to upload the ride. That, unfortunately, is a moderate to severe inconvenience. At these prices, I expected more from Garmin. I really don't like the fact that I have to give up functionality, even if it is not needed every time out.
I ride 5-6 times a week. I have really really really tried hard to make this work. I am also tech savvy, so... I'm pretty sure it is not me...
