If you want a workout partner, a GPS, and a lot of fun injected into your cycling - buy this! ProBikeKit had the best price for this, and delivery was on time, and well packaged. I was most interested in the Edge 500 for turbo trainer workouts - which it does perfectly. I can turn the GPS off, and use Garmin Training Center App on my desktop computer to program workouts that really do motivate you on the turbo. It is just an awesome piece of kit for the price! Garmin Connect is fun too. I've uploaded all my sessions and can compare them side by side; marking personal bests and basically monitoring all the data produced by my workouts. I can see my fitness seriously improving with this little device, and I know the GPS is gonna be handy for route planning. At this price it's a "no-brainer"!

Well lets face it if your into road riding (can speak for mtb but sure it's the same) you cannot of failed to hear about garmin. I have used an app on my phone successfully 99% of the time but liked the idea of all the data and information I could then get about my riding/training. First impression - super fast delivery and great service for probikekit. The garmin looked great and was impressively light. Setting up however was a lot less straight forward than I had thought. I also found the linking computer programmes not easy to use and failed to upload after a few attempts. On the bike. This is where it happens. I found there were too many screens for me. It didn't give me the information I wanted on one screen and I didn't like the idea of scrolling through screens to get data whilst on the bike. In summary I got back home and am used to getting the data straight away from my phone. With the garmin I then had to load up my p.c to get the info about the ride. I recognise I am likely to be in the vast minority about garmin but for me personally? It wasn't for me. Do I really need to spend that amount on something I get from a free app. Also and I think more importantly is I asked myself the question "WHY DO I RIDE?" who and what am I doing it for?

Once you learn to use it andwrite tranings is usefull for your trainings.You don't need more than the EDGE 500. Unfortunatelly it isn't have wifi but after use the USB cable you can add to Garmin Connect and automatically to Strava.

Good to a point

Ive done just under a thousand miles with the Garmin 500, which I would describe as moderate use. Initial set up is a little fiddly and time consuming but once you have your screens set up, its quite a natty piece of kit with a mind blowing amount of information. That said it has been less that perfect in its speed, distance and altitude calculations and annoying when your climbing up a steep gradient only to find its not been recording anything for the last half a mile due to the trees or some such. Other points are the cadence sensor you get with the 500 tends to get nudged either towards the crank arm or the wheel thus a clicking and no cadence or clicking and no speed (if on the trainer without GPS on). The final point is that the Heart rate monitor has stopped working after 7 months of use and I can not for the life of me get it to work, I have tried with a number of different batteries and tricks to try and reset it but to no avail so it looks like ill have to purchase another strap and HR monitor, which i think for a premium product at premium price is a bit poor. Sometimes I miss my old wired Cateye strada for the pace arrow super light weight and simple functionality and cost effectiveness. I do like the 500 but it's expensive and has some flaws which I don't believe it should have at this price.

Garmin edge 500. Neat design, mount onto bars simple and effective. The cadence mount was a bit of a pain to fit neatly but that was just my bike Focus Cayo. Gives all the data you need but I don't seem to be able to view heart rate on the move?

Very good price, it was an upgrade from my Edge 200, a little more complicated than the 200 but has many more functions, HRM worked first time, had a little trouble with the first upload, but solved it easily with a full reset. Very interesting seeing all the extra readings and I'm now going to start to train using the HRM.

Does what you need. Easy to configure,set up and use. Links well with Strava for your ride analysis. Yet to fully investigate the Garmin sites but from various comments I have read do not expect much so plan to mainly use for ride info plus Strava for analysis.
