  • Summary: The other reviews have all the detailed specs. The only thing I have to add to their reviews is how to avoid GPS Drift ... (i) you need to soft reboot if you haven't turned it on and acquired satellites it in the past 10-14 days (ii) this is horrible if you leave it in your pocket ...

  • Summary: I'm an amateur cyclist now on Maui. The Garmin 500 has no maps. What it will do and has done for thousands is more than most athletes need or can use. It has 3 separate screens that can be adjusted to show multiple areas of Data while in progress. It is compact and complete.

Works but has flaws

CautiousBuyer, Amazon
4 November 2014
  • Summary: We are mountain bike riders and we use our Garmin Edge every time we ride. It's small and easy to mount to the bike. It does a great job finding and tracking satellites. They claim leading technology in this area and I believe it works from my experience.

  • Summary: I went with the Edge 500 as some of the newer units are difficult to read in the sunlight. It is a bit tricky to find out how to change bikes but once you get it figured out, it is no big deal. The only thing keeping it from being a 5 star review is the 3 bike limitation.

Just what's needed for any serious road cyclist.

Antares, Amazon
18 September 2014
  • Summary: I was going to purchase the Edge 800, but then I finally used some common sense and bought this instead. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles like the 800, but it has more than enough data fields for any advanced cyclist.

great and reliable computer

Pantucci, Amazon
20 August 2014
  • Summary: I like this computer very much. I use it with the speed/cadence sensor, and a heart rate monitor. All these things work great. The battery lasts for many hours and I have never had it die on me on a ride. The screen is readable, even in direct sunlight.
