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. As for Garmins, the non-Japanese Garmin will work just fine in Japan. A lot of TCC members including myself use UUD maps.Wives, or Garmins?
My wife understands very well that we have "一つの財布" (one wallet). Monetary bribes don't work with her. A back or foot massage however or fixing a meal...and yes, i would probably give her a gift that costs more than 2x than that. the realities of being a husband:bike:
Let me paraphrase that: "If I want something and I can do it, I do it."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.
But correct me if I'm wrong but you would still need to purchase the Japanese map bundle seperately, would you not?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?
He does do it. It is my choice to spend time with my family not anyone elses.Key word in this case is "time"!

"not selfish ... just alpha-male "To be clear, I'm not advocating being ... selfish. I'm advocating being an alpha male ...
Haha, then why don't you go for the SRM, why still waiting? It's the best and most-pro power meter out there (it's so cheap compared to a sports car).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.
LOL... yeah, sorry for the thread drift! For the record, the Edge 800 is also ANT+.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)
