Summary: First, The Garmin Edge 510 has other features that I am not familiar with.. By using it from a regular training and club rides its very efficient and very friendly to use. Just a heads up! I still recommend to all riders for using the device that you have to pay attention every seconds for anything in front of you.
Summary: The Garmin Edge 510 has been far better than I expected and I would like to have been able to give it 4.5 stars. Overall it's easy to use and I really like the accuracy of the GPS and speedometer. One of the features I really like about this and some of the other Garmin devices is that they let the user customize the display. The Edge 510 let's the users select which data field will be on the display and where each data field will appear on the display. Very cool.
Better UI and GPS than the Edge 500, but drops ANT+ devices

Summary: I bought a 510 as an upgrade from my Edge 500. My reasons for upgrading were: - The 500's artificial software limitation of 3 bike profiles - The ridiculous 12-button-press process for switching bike profiles on the 500 - The 510's support for GLONASS GPS My reasons for not wanting to upgrade were: - I hate rewarding companies by up-buying because their lower models are artificially limited - No Bluetooth Smart support (I can't use my BT heart rate strap with the 510,...
Summary: Outstanding piece of equipment and was very easy to install and sync. Easy to set up due to the touch screen and the blue tooth is a plus to upload your completed activity. The only draw back to this unit is that it is a little tough to see screen on sunny day (deduct one star).
Summary: My last Garmin was a GPS II plus, back in the 90's. It probably still works, albeit a bit clunky and slow. Been using my iPhone with handlebar mount for mt biking and figured there was no reason to get a dedicated bike gps, until Winter arrived and I decided to extend the riding season. The iPhone specs say down to 32F and sure enough once you start riding below that temp (especially with wind factors) the phone's battery goes quicker and the device will shut.
Summary: Manual provided insufficient would recommend downloading the online manual. Took a little time setting up with my turbo trainer but really great to be able to analyse my indoor training efforts.
