Summary: perfect bike computer. easy to pair with various sensors. Finds GPS very quickly. Great for syncing with pc and saving ride data. Great GPS maps feature for pre-loaded routes. Ridden in heavy rain with no issues. No complaints for this one.
Summary: I had a cat-eye before this and wanted a bike computer that would record more numbers for me so naturally I looked into the Garmin Edge 500. I love this device one charge will last me all weekend and the screen is customizable so I can view that data that I need at any given time. I use Garmin Connect but the majority of my friends are on Strava. So I connect it to my computer after my rides and its very simple to upload my data onto the Strava website.
The Garmin Edge 500 is exactly what I was looking for

Summary: I work out on my bike in the winter indoors of course (Wisconsin) using Spinervals work out dvds, the heartrate and cadence features help me do the workouts properly. The Garmin 500 is easily configured to give me the data I am looking for.
Garmin Edge 500 is the number one Cyclocomputer in the market.

Summary: Garmin Edge 500 lived up to my expectation. I tested it last March 22, 2014 at Solvang Spring Double Century ride. It didn't disappoint me at all. It never run out of charge for the whole duration of the ride, 15 hours 57 minutes. After the ride there are still 28% of charge left. You can never go wrong with Garmin. Two thumbs up for this product.
Summary: I had the Garmin 200 for a little while, but I wanted the option of the heart rate monitor. I bought the Garmin 500 Red in October, 2013. I used it several times for cycling before the weather got too cold for me to ride. I've been running for 3 years, but only recently (December 2013) have I been using my Garmin 500 for running. I'll put it in my glove or under my base layer sleeve, then wear a watch (It doesn't move).
Summary: I've had this GPS for about 3 weeks now and it is awesome. I haven't had any issues with it and it links up to my heart rate monitor perfectly. I love all the different screens I can add to the page along with the multiple page option.
Summary: Good product and seems to help out a lot with the many screens and being able to download routes. It doesn't have turn by turn directions is the only negative thing, but understand the next model up does have that if needed. Good battery life for rides over 10 hrs in duration.
