    I bought this Garmin a week before the Death ride! I like being able to see the distance, ascend, descend, grade and time on my bike. It makes biking more enjoyable.

      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.

            I like it better than my 510, even though the 510 has connectivity. The 500 is easier to use, smaller, just seems better

              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.
