Summary: I really like the features of this computer but unless they can work the bugs out, I have to rate it a one-star. I bought this computer in April 2014 but have been having issues with one thing not working or another.
Summary: This is a bad product. You should not buy it until and unless Garmin addresses the serious issues widely reported in their own forums. First, the Bluetooth connectivity is seriously buggy. It is highly unusual to have a ride upload automatically, without having to use a computer.
Summary: In case any other Edge 510 owners are having problems losing ride data, or all data on your device for that matter, Garmin has finally acknowledged there is a serious problem in their forum (Garmin's Edge 510 forum) "Garmin is aware of this issue that some of you are reporting where the Edge 510...
Summary: This item made it on five ride then at the bottom of one hill Looked down and it was not there, i retrace the ride backward and could not find it. To say the least I am pissed with the crappy interface between the 510 and the handle bar.
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:...
Summary: I have been an avid cyclist for well over 10 years and recently purchased this Garmin Edge 510 bundle to replace a Garmin Edge 500 bundle I used for well over three years. I figured newer technology and more features would be nicer to have and use. NOT!!!
Summary: I have had many different bike computers , but spoiled my self when I upgrades to a new fancy bike , with a new GARMIN 510 computer The salesman told me how fantastic this new 510 is . WELL IT IS JUNK DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY The unit has all the bells and whistles up the batteries don't last .
Summary: I'm not a big reviewer nor do I care to sit here and ramble on. All I must say is that this device is 'two steps back' from the Garmin edge 500. Unreliable, finicky, and buggy. After using a Garmin Edge 500 for almost 3 years, I was excited when I bought this 'upgrade', only to find out now that it...
Summary: This is an extremely poorly made device. Garmin clearly rushed this piece of garbage to market without thorough testing. After working for a few weeks, mine stopped working properly. It disappears from the computer 10-30 seconds after USB connection, on any of six different computers.
Pros: On the odd occasion that it works, its features are nice.
Cons: File transfer does not work. Cannot charge on computer. Unit disappears from computer. Deleted activities remain on device and slow operation to a crawl.
