After a long ride away from home I used the Android app Edgescope and an OTG cable to d/l data to my phone and Strava. Very cool. Like this device a lot. Great bargain.

    Comments about Garmin Edge 500 GPS Bike Computer:

    Watched several others buy the Garmin 500 and rave about it. I had been using wireless bike computer and garmin 910. The 500 has a great display and can easily scroll between different screens while riding. The screen size is hugely customizable and swapping between bikes is easy. Battery life seems pretty accurate and lasts over 15 hours. Wish i would have purchased it sooner.

        It did not work properly. I called the support people twice. They were very helpful. Both times they suggested that I return it for a new one.

            Awesome computer. I upgraded from the 705 and "upgrade" doesn't feel like a good enough word. The data is basically the same but the smaller size doesn't take anything away from the ease of reading the screen. It makes the cockpit look cleaner too.

                  Honestly, I do not have the item yet, after almost 3 weeks of waiting I was told to wait for another week and a half. As soon as O get it, I will place new review on it. Btw, I live in Guam si I guess this is the shipping timeframe for us here in our island.

                  Comments about Garmin Edge 500 GPS Bike Computer:

                  Garmin claimed in the compatible charts that unit could be with ANT+ sensors such as Cateye, Vetta, Sportex. It was not. So, I ordered the HRM and Cadance/Speed sensors later, wasted time and money. Now , the Edge works accurately with the HRM, and SPD/CAD sensors. It is slow in finding the sat signals. Temp reads high about 10 to 5 degs, depending on how warm or cold the air is. Also, inaccurate with grade ( about 4-6%), also I wonder about the calories because my standard HRM monitors all give a higher calorie count than the Edge. I use Garmin connect and that works fine. The Training Center software not so good, information too condensed. As a HRM, SP/CAD, and training data it is good. GPS is slow and iffy.

                  Display can become crowded and info too small to read. However, Garmin has done a great job with allowing one to program pages so they have as little or as much info thatis right for you. Once I got the info that was important to me programmed on multiple pages, I knew this device was a winner.

                  Comments about Garmin Edge 500 GPS Bike Computer:

                  Purchased to step up training. Easy to install; basically rubberband it to the bar stem. Took a bit of time to get the screens configured, but not difficult. The the reasons I returned it are related mostly to the inaccurate barometric altimeter... (1) Slow to capture live data on ascent and descent. On a climb, it often takes two to four minutes until it captures the degree and altitude change. A climb of 50 to 70 feet won't show until leveled out at the top. (2) Altitude at departure and return can be off by 10 percent. (3) Auto-stop start delayed by a 100 yards or more on restart. Problems (1) and (2) could conceivably be solved by setting waypoints or if the machine was gps rather than pressure based. Retailer advised me issue was mine rather than machines for riding under power lines. Alas, none of the problems occurred on routes with tension lines, just a poor performer or perhaps a bad machine. Another techie advised that the alti problems are solved when moving up to the 800. But, little over the top for my purposes. Back to the store.
