Garmin Edge 500 Cycling Computer

Developed with input from the Garmin professional cycling team, the Edge 500 builds upon the Edge 305/605/705 foundation with new features and styling, yet the finished product is more compact and lightweight than ever.

Sharpen your cycling performance with Edge 500, a lightweight GPS-based bike 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.

In the Box

Each kit includes GPS unit, instructions, and new "quarter turn" handlebar mount.

HR/Cadence bundle includes GPS, heart rate strap, and wireless cadence pickup. Standard unit does not include heart rate strap or cadence, however, these items can be purchased separately and will still work with the computer. Prior accessories (such as the heart rate strap you may already have from an Edge 305) can also work with Edge 500.

  • Packed with data - speed, distance, location, elevation
  • High sensitivity GPS sensor for fast, accurate satellite lock-on
  • weighs in at an amazing 2oz - youll hardly notice it on your handlebar

              Comments about Garmin Edge 500 Cycling Computer:

              Let me first start by saying I haven't had the Garmin for very long and that this is my first GPS based cycling computer, so keep that in mind when reading my review.

              Ok then, here we go....

              I picked the 500 for several reasons -

              1. Positive online reviews
              2. Reasonable price
              3. Functionality/features
              4. Size
              5. ANT compatibility (future add on's)

              The only real concern I had prior to purchase was the regularity of the tabs that hold it on the mount breaking off. Luckily there is a very easy (free) fix so no worries there. Initial setup is a little confusing. I thought Garmin Express was what you used to view your gathered data. All Express is used for is transferring data to and from the device. Garmin Connect is what you use to view your data. Speaking of Garmin Connect, it's ok at best. There is a ton of information available but it's laid out sort of hap hazard and its VERY easy to get somewhere in the software and then have a hard time trying to figure out how to get back out. It's not very intuitive (not for me anyway). Is it a deal breaker? No. The device itself is pretty slick. It's small enough to not feel like it's in the way and big enough to easily read the screen. Satalite acquisition can take a minute or two depending on where you are. I have yet for it to do it quickly from a repeat location like stated by Garmin. Again, is it annoying? It can be. Is it a deal breaker? No. The amount of data is impressive as is the ability to customize what's displayed on the screen. Coming from a wired sensor based computer that displayed only two data sets at a time, being able to see everything I need to see on one screen is awesome!

              All in all I'm very happy with my decision!

              Great Bike Computer.
              Before this I only used a cheap computer and this is much nicer with all the configurable fields.
              Great with the heart rate monitor and cadence sensor.
              Strava is also great motivation.

              Cons

              • Calorie Tracking Is Iffy
              • No Wifi Data Transfer

              Best Uses

                Comments about Garmin Edge 500 Cycling Computer:

                This is the best all around cycling computer I have used. It's very durable as it has been in a few spills and still works perfectly and looks like new. It's compact size does not hinder the ability to use it's buttons while riding and while wearing gloves. The only things I would change are the fact that it needs wifi or bluetooth data tranfer ability and the calorie tracker seems a bit "generous". Also, it's tempature reading seem to be a few degrees higher than ambient tempatures. These complaints are minor compared to it's strong points and usefulness.

                Comments about Garmin Edge 500 Cycling Computer:

                I have been really happy with my 500. I am on my second one because I accidentally broke the screen on my first. I would have liked to purchase an edge 800 but the cost is still too much. In my opinion, the Edge 500 is well worth its current price.
