The Review
This is a great bike GPS that provides you with all the essential data that you expect from a good bike GPS. When you upload your ride data to Garmin Connect, your route with all the ride data is overlaid with the Googlemap of the route which you can view online and edit if you wish. The head unit picks up the signals from the heart rate monitor (HRM), speed and cadence sensor quickly. However, it does take a couple of minutes to pick up the satellite signals. This can also work without the speed sensor and magnet as it can alternatively use satellite signals of provide the speed reading. The Edge 500 model does not contain maps but that's so it can be kept light, simple, and easy to operate.
