Sharpen your cycling performance with Edge 500, a lightweight GPS-based cycling computer for performance-driven cyclists. Loaded with data, Edge 500 tracks your distance, speed, location and elevation with high sensitivity GPS. Add an ANT+® compatible heart rate monitor, speed/cadence sensor or compatible power meter for a finely-tuned analysis of your ride.
The Edge 500 attaches easily to the stem or handlebars of your bike with its low-profile bike mount. The Edge attaches easily to the mount with a simple quarter-turn. When you're ready to ride, just power on your Edge, acquire GPS satellites and go. Edge 500 features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix® satellite prediction to calculate your position faster.
During your ride, Edge 500 measures your speed, distance, time, calories burned, altitude, climb and descent, and records this data for your review. For extra-precise climb and descent data, Edge 500 also incorporates a barometric altimeter to pinpoint changes in elevation.
All Edge 500 versions work with third-party ANT+-enabled power meters to display your power output in watts as you ride. This valuable data shows you how hard you're working, regardless of conditions affecting your ride, so you can train smarter. Some versions also ship with a digital heart rate monitor and speed/cadence sensor.
Other helpful training features include a Courses feature, which helps you compare successive rides over the same route, as well as Auto Pause, Auto Lap and temperature readings. Edge also alerts you if you’re moving but the timer is not running.
When paired with a Garmin heart rate monitor, Edge 500 tracks heart beats per minute and uses your heart rate for advanced calorie computation, so you know how many calories you're burning. Train in a certain heart-rate zone to improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to past performance over the same ride.
Once your ride’s done, connect Edge 500 to your computer with the included USB cable to analyse your performance. With a simple click, you can join a worldwide network of cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts through Garmin Connect™, a one-stop site for data analysis and sharing.

Usual good quality and from opening the box, setting it up and going for a ride was around 15 minutes. Data seemed to transfer much faster to my Garmin Connect than my previous 500 after the ride. Very pleased and hope to have this 500 for as long as the previous one.
Have always wanted a Garmin GPS Cycle Computer. As I've only heard good things about them. The information you get is clear and substantial. Currently I only have the unit itself . However, you can buy Heart Rate Moniters, Cadence and Power Meters. I could of bought them all at the same time but unfortunately funds wouldn't stretch that far when buying the unit. The good news is that you can buy them as and when funds allow. There's up to 5 pages of info available where you can display as much, or as little as you want.Once the individual has his or her extra's for their individual needs. Even the unit itself has a lot of info on offer. Eventually I will be investing in a HR Monitor to help with my training. I would strongly recommend the Garmin Edge 500 as an entry level GPS. As the information displayed once uploaded to the Garmin Connect Website provides you with plenty of information for any cyclists training regeme. As regards to the service and delivery by Probike. It's superb and I just can't fault their service. I would therefore highly recommend The Garmin Edge 500 GPS Bike Computer for any budding Cyclist and their training and Probike for the superb service they provide.
Having cheaper options for several years, i am very impressed with my Garmin Edge 500. It is so easy to use and know can link up with my Cycling friends through Garmin Connect and Strava. Excellent product.
Bought a Garmin Edge 500. Delivery was very slow due to problems with supply although ProBikeKit did keep sending emails periodically apologising for this. Now that it's finally arrived, over two weeks late, I'm really pleased with it. Just a few niggles though that I think could be covered better by Garmin. It was confusing regarding the disc that was included in the package. I thought it'd include the necessary software to install on your computer. However, all it contains is a computer version of the paper manual that is also in the box! Being a bit of a technophobe, I didn't know what I needed to download and it was only through talking to friends that I discovered I needed Garmin Express & Connect. I think that this could be explained in the instruction booklet. Anyway, those gripes aside, the Garmin itself seems to work well and accurately. I've only had it up and running a few days and used it twice, but so far so good. I guess I'll work out more of its functions in due course but at the moment I'm happy with what it does and having read reviews of both the 500 & 510 I think I've made the right choice for my requirements considering the price difference between them and the fact that the 500 seems to do most of the things that the 510 does anyway (and is smaller & less intrusive on the bike). I'm also pleased with the 'out-front' mount that I bought separately that sits it centrally in front of the stem.
Great little product, just the right size connects to sensors with ease and picks up satalite signal very quickly. Well worth the money.
Great addition. Easy to use. Small unit but easy to read whilst riding.
I decided on an Edge 500 after considering a number of GPS computer options. I like the small size and light weight, and the ability to read data easily on the move, unlike the phone I was previously using to record rides. I've yet to fully customise the device to set it up as I'd like it, and I still need to experiment with Courses, but so far so good...
Great piece of kit & the best price on the net from PBK. Was undecided between this and the more expensive edge 800. Having read loads of reviews I went for the 500 and have not been disappointed.It picks up GPS quickly, it's small, neat and menu's are easily navigated. I absolutely love Stava & uploading couldn't be easier.
Excellent bike computer, really easy to set up. Accurate readings. The full package!
The Edge 500 may have been supreseded technically, but if you're looking for a simple yet very powerful computer, look no further. As I've got a trip planned in France this year, I wanted a unit that would log gradient, altitude, height gain / descent, and temp. I don't use a heart rate monitor or power meter and didn't want cadence (what a mess on the bike) - the unit can do all of these with the appropriate accessories (look out for the other value pack). This is simple to set up (even for three bikes) and use and seems to be accurate and reliable. Best to set the altitude for key known start points yourself (get it off the web) to improve accuracy further. Really like how you can configure the display, so I can read the relevant key bits of info by lettng it scroll as I ride. And then there's Garmin Connect..........
