persuading my wife now and yes, i would probably give her a gift that costs more than 2x than that. the realities of being a husband:bike:
Wives, or Garmins?
and yes, i would probably give her a gift that costs more than 2x than that. the realities of being a husband:bike:
Wives... if I want something, and I can afford it, I buy it. I suppose it's all in how you've developed, and maintained the dynamics of your relationship.
The price seems to be better on Wiggle.
At least on this version Garmin Edge 800 GPS Performance Bundle
Chain reaction has it at a bit higher
With the UUD latest version, though, the price is not much better than an 800J. Decisions, decisions...
No need to make up my mind right now and maybe the price will come down further with xmas sales and the like.
What's wrong with that?
My wife want to eat whale meat, we are at the sushi shop, she can eat it?
She wants a guchi handbag, she can afford it, she gets it.
She certainly doesn't have to beg my permission.
I don't see the problem?
Key word in this case is "time"! If I read that thread it sounds to me that this guy needs to beg to get allowance to go out cycling on the weekend. Well, if he would have managed the dynamics of his relationship correctly he would just do it, right?As all guys with families know cycling has a habit of encroaching into the weekend when there are plenty of other demands on time."
The Edge 800J is only sold with a Garmin-approved Japanese language map; either Topo or routable City Navigator with POI. The UUD map has both routable road map and topo data in one product.But correct me if I'm wrong but you would still need to purchase the Japanese map bundle separately, would you not?

To be clear, I'm not advocating being ... selfish. I'm advocating being an alpha male ...
The example given of buying a Garmin Edge 800 doesn't fall into that category for me. Something like a new sports car might. I would definitely discuss that with my wife.
errr, i didn't know this garmin post would be something about being an alpha male. never felt the need whatever works for your "dynamic" in your relationships is good
aaaannnyyyway, thanks for the information about the japanese maps! i am moving towards the edge 500 because of the ANT+ feature (if I decide to use that down the road)
