Always on and always legible, unlike a phone display, and unlike other garmins.

Garrett Birkel, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to replace my Garmin Forerunner 305. I've taken it across the US, and around Australia and New Zealand. Except for one thing, it’s an across-the-board improvement over the 305 and does its job perfectly.

Great cycling computer!

  • Summary: I am a serious road cyclist (I ride 5-6 times per week) and do a lot of mountain climbs in both New Mexico and Colorado. I wanted something that placed all my ride data in one place on one screen.The Garmin Edge 500 does not disappoint.

My favorite bike & activity computer so far

Bert Whetstone, Amazon
26 May 2015
  • Summary: This may be an older model, but aside from having to plug it into your computer to sync there isn't much more you could ask for. It's very easy to use, smaller than some of the ridiculously huge newer units I see other cyclists in my group using, and is very configurable.

Great Device With Just a Couple of Issues

Steven B, Amazon
24 May 2015
  • Summary: I've had mine for about 4 months now and have done about 50 rides with it. So far, the device has performed flawlessly when it comes to recording and saving my rides. No freeze-ups, no shut downs, and none of the problems I read about with owners of other Garmin's like the 510 and 810.

Still Great After Garmin Replaced It

J. Monroy, Amazon
4 May 2015
  • Summary: Now that this model has been deprecated by Garmin and replaced with the newer 510, you can find refurbished units for about half the price of a touchscreen model (as of mid-2015).

A great GPS computer with excellent battery life.

R. Collins, Amazon
17 January 2015
  • Summary: I bought the Garmin Edge 500 because I wanted a bike computer with GPS that wouldn't break the bank. I wanted to use it for recording and tracking my routes. This was exactly what I needed. I had been using my iPhone but the tracking with Strava drained the battery rather quickly.

Garmin Edge 500 (1691)

C-Lo, singletracks
31 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I have this paired with the cadence/speed sensor and it has been the best cycle computer I have owned. The speed sensor will automatically calibrate so you don't have to put in any measurements if you don't want. It keeps an odometer on each bike you program.
  • Pros: Light weight, water resistant, versatile, accurate, easy setup, works great with accessories
  • Cons: None
