Summary: Should have gotten this before I screwed up my phone. GPS works as good as my Android phone, but I don't have to worry about getting this wet, unlike my phone. Love that the HR monitor doesn't have to be charged. The cadence and speed sensor are great accessories for this computer, and let's me tune my rides. It seems to be the item of choice and I don't think the 810 would have made much difference, except in my wallet.

Summary: I have about 2,000 miles on my Garmin this season and have really enjoyed it. The screen is clear and easy to read. You can easily adjust what you see on the screen. The bluetooth to my iPhone 5 works well and my family can easily track my rides with the built-in live link. I also use the heart rate monitor with it.
Summary: The default bike computer for MTB. The dual GPS system provides very accurate tracking. When doing downhill the cadence sensor tends to do some reading peeks for no reason. For instance it shows you a cadence of 200 or more rpm. Maybe the shanking effect of going +50 km/h in rough terrain. You have the option to personalize the showing screen so you can add your own readings combinations like: cadence, speed, total time, running time, etc. to each screen.
Summary: My second Garmin now - outstanding features in a super compact design. Updates seemed to have cleared up earlier complaints, as I have hundreds of miles logged on mine with no problems - & I always use the bluetooth feature connected to my Droid phone.
Summary: Long time cyclist and GPS user here. 510 works as advertised. I live in the southern US and have had no issues with screen viewability in direct sunlight. Connects to the net flawlessly. Has plenty of battery and memory capacity for my every other day cycling routine.
Summary: Great buy. I would say that for anyone who likes to ride this is worth the buy. I am about to buy a second speed sensor for my mountain bikes so I can use the 510 on it as well. It replaced my Polar.
Summary: This is a very good GPS bike computer and it has more positives than negatives. First positive: it performs better than the Garmin 500 and 810; second, its GPS system is very accurate; third, it has many ways to customize and view your cycling data; fourth, it is bluetooth-enabled, allowing you to sync with a Smart phone.
... it so far but find it to be an excellent computer for my biking

Summary: I've only put about 200 miles on it so far but find it to be an excellent computer for my biking. Tied into Garmin Connect I find the information it provides to be good for training purposes. The big complaint I keep reading about as to its readability in the sunlight to be quite bogus. In the sunlight it is quite readable. Maybe it has to do with the position it is mounted on the bike. The only time I have an issue with being able to read it is when my shadow covers it.
Summary: When the buttons on my Garmin Edge 500 finally wore out, I replaced it with the 510. My wife really likes the Live Tracking feature (I use it with the Garmin Connect Mobile app on a Nexus 5). When I'm done with a ride, the Garmin Connect Mobile app automatically uploads my rides to Garmin Connect. Then Garmin Connect autosyncs to TrainingPeaks. And I have CopyMySports set up to send my rides from Garmin Connect to Strava. All very cool.
