Summary: The basic functionality for recording ride data works mostly as expected. Everything else is a disaster. Bluetooth is flaky to say the least. Syncing with your phone almost always fails without explanation.
Summary: It does what's it's advertised to do most of the time. I'm specifically rating it lower because the user interface is pretty poorly designed. The worst flaw is that it will pop up alerts over your dashboard telling you really exciting things: "wheels calibrated" or "speed sensor found!
Summary: It's finicky, or buggy or something. I keep checking with "garmin connect" to make sure the software is up to date, but it continues to freeze while "saving" rides. I delete my ride history at least once a week, sometimes more, and it's still the same.
Summary: Prior to buying the Garmin, I was using a wired computer for front wheel speed and distance only + my iPhone running Strava to log GPS data. Since I've already got a few years into Strava, any upgrades would need to provide continuity.
Summary: Well, I'm writing after a 125 miles ride with this thing. I upgraded from Garmin Edge 200. I see many reviews regarding bad display contrast, but it seems Garmin assessed the problem, it was a sunny day, no display contrast issues.
Summary: I'm not a competitive cyclist, but I love data. It motivates me to ride. I've had several other bike computers, including one GPS unit, the Sigma ROX 10.0. Comparing this to the Rox, the Garmin is better in almost every way (except for cost).
Summary: I spent a small fortune on the Edge 510 as a present for my 73 yr old husband who is an avid road cyclist. I wanted to know where he was when he was riding as he has a heart condition and this Garmin seemed worth the expense.

Summary: I have the 500 and after buying the 510 I was very pleased. What I like most is that I no longer have to manually download my rides. At night it turns to night vision ion its own. It just doesn't last as long as the 500, but it's close.
Summary: I had researched many bicycle computers (various models and high-low prices). This model, which included the cadence and HR monitor works real well. Limited directions but a wealth of knowledge via web videos and many FAQs. Seamless integration with Garmin connect and Strava.
