Out with the old, in with the new.

You've been happy with the Garmin 500, we get it -- it's small, has useful data, and quite simply, it works. So, you're probably desperate for a reason to upgrade to the Garmin Edge 510 Bundle and OF Mount. Well, how about three reasons -- a longer battery life, a touch screen interface, and the all new Live Tracking feature. Essentially, Garrmin designed this computer to be the Edge 810 in a smaller package. Sure, you don't have all of the functionality, but then again, you're also saving $200. Regardless, though, the Edge 510 Bundle delivers functionality in leaps and bounds over the venerable 500. Not only that, but it also includes all of the training accessories that you need to kick this race season off right.

Starting at the screen, Garmin placed a focus on simplifying screen and metrics navigation. The initial start screen prompts you to select the CPU's functionality for your ride, either 'train' or 'race.' To avoid confusion, training mode is presented in Blue, whereas race mode is presented in Red. Additionally, this screen enables you to select the bike profile that you'll be riding -- mountain, road, cyclocross, or even unicycle if you're savvy. Once these selections have been made, you simply touch the ride button, and the screen moves to your race or training page. And of course, this page is customizable for every bike profile in your quiver. So, your ride page will only reflect the data that you deem pertinent to your ride or race. Even more impressive, and a jump away from the button navigation fumbling of the 500, the 510 allows you to simply swipe the touch-screen from page to page. Also, Garmin designed the screen to operate seamlessly with gloved hands in the cold, in the heat, or even in wet weather.

And as long as we're on the subject of new features, you'll should be ecstatic to hear that the 510 is Bluetooth ready. So, while sport device communication is still handled by ANT+ (say, wireless data transfer from the included HRM and cadence sensor), the Bluetooth technology communicates with your smartphone. And to make matters even easier, the 510 is fluent in either Android or iOS operating systems. So, once you're synced up with your phone, and you've downloaded the Garmin Connect Mobile App, the 510 really comes alive. Essentially, the 510 receives data from your smartphone, like live weather and activity upload. This means that you're able to receive real-time weather conditions, forecasts, and alerts while your phone stays protected. And for activity upload, this hastens the data transfer once you've finished your ride. From any location, this feature allows you to wirelessly upload your ride data to your smartphone, which then uploads it to your Garmin Connect profile online. Accordingly, you can view your profile from the Mobile App, almost eliminating the need to access Garmin Connect from a home computer.

Impressed? Believe us, that's just the tip of the iceberg. With the 510's Live Tracking feature, you have the ability to share your activities in real-time through either email or the social media of your choosing. All that you have to do is invite your coach, friends, or family to follow you on Garmin Connect, and then you're able to send email notifications reminding them to follow your real-time activity, stats, data, and location while you're on the bike. You also have the option to share this information via Facebook or Twitter. But, your adoring public aren't the only ones that can navigate your movements. With either the Mobile App or Garmin connect, you have the ability to peruse rides in your area. However, unlike the 810, the 510 doesn't have full map functionality, however, it does GPS for post-ride analysis.

Now for the guts. The 510 sees the return of Garmin's ever-popular, Virtual Partner and Virtual Racer training programs. The 510 does no accept data cards, but it's capable of storing up to 180 hours on its onboard history. It's rechargeable lithium-ion battery has a life that extends to around 17 hours. Garmin also ensured that the CPU is completely waterproof, and it's also compatible with virtually any ANT+ equipped device. So, mating the 510 to an HRM or powermeter will be a painless affair.

The Garmin Edge 510 Bundle and OF Mount is available in the color Black and includes a standard and out-front bike mount, a premium heart rate monitor, a speed/cadence sensor, USB cable, AC charger, a tether, and a user-manual.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer


1) The screen is great, all others who complain it’s hard to read are full of it- the screen does not have the sharp contrast of the 500, but it is full color, and its plenty bright (adjustable) and easy to read. Secondly, the color screen is a whole lot nicer to look at- kind of like the difference between an old DOS and a new Windows screen.

2) While it takes a little time to figure out how to program the various screens with Data to your needs, it’s easy once you figure it out. Also, you have to push the physical "ride" or "play" button on the front of the unit even after tapping "RIDE" onscreen, which is no big deal, you just have to do it, or your unit will not begin your ride or the timer. I think many of the complaints on the 510 come from users who either didn't read the manual, or lack some basic technology skills when it comes to phones, computers, tablets, or anything else. While the user interface on the 510 is still somewhat crude (in the early stages) compared to an iPhone, but it still is incredibly sophisticated, and is perfect for a very usable GPS computer on a road or mountain bike.

3) Bluetooth Connectivity, and Garmin "LiveTrack": This feature is touted by many buyers of this unit as not worthwhile, or a waste of technology for cyclists. BOGUS, the Bluetooth feature on the 510 is AWESOME. The Garmin unit lets you turn off your phone GPS, all you need turned on is the Bluetooth so your Garmin can stay connected. While this may seem like a solution in search of a problem, it actually works very well.

4) FINALLY: One last feature (may seem trivial, but I think it’s pretty darn cool) that makes this unit a game changer is the automatic updates at the completion of your ride to Garmin Connect online. As soon as you hit the end ride button (and SAVE on screen) the Garmin unit uploads all the details of your entire ride to the Garmin Connect website for you and everyone to see (if you set it up that way) !!! OK, many of you are going to say that "Garmin Connect" sucks compared to STRAVA, so why would I want to automatically upload my ride to Garmin Connect? You would be right, except for a really cool third party plug in online called: "GARMIN SYNC"

This website does one simple thing: It uploads your entire ride data from Garmin Connect directly into STRAVA!!! (AUTOMATICALLY.) You don't have to do a thing, once you set it up, every time your Garmin unit uploads your ride to Garmin Connect, this little plug in "pushes" your ride information to STRAVA, and I don't mean some half baked version, I MEAN THE ENTIRE RIDE- Including: Miles ridden, Time traveled, average heart rate, max heart rate, average speed, max speed, cadence, calories, energy output, power, suffer score (Strava Premium only) !! As far as I can tell, there is no difference between the "Auto" upload of a ride, or the old school plug the Garmin into your computer and upload to STRAVA method. Now some might make the argument they have to plug their Garmin in to charge it anyway, so why not plug into a computer to charge and upload your ride at the same time, why do I need the auto uploads? Here are a couple scenarios I can think of why this is useful: If you’re traveling, and don't want to bring a laptop to upload your rides, you don't need to. Also, at what point is plugging a device into your computer to upload anything going to become a thing of the past completely: sooner than later. iPhone IOS already does all of its updates from iPhones without ever having to plug them in anymore, not set up, backups, downloads, etc. Why shouldn't other devices be so simple?

Really? No manual?

    Received my Garmin 510 Edge Bundle today. I was surprised and very unhappy about the fact there was no owners manual, installation instructions or a sheet identifying the box full of parts. Needless to say, I cannot give the number of stars Garmin usually earns and now must track down the information that should have been included in a $400 product.

    No Problems - Just PRs

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this device. I've never had any issues. Paired it up with my android device and ready to go, I then synced my Strava with the Garmin Connect app, uploads via bluetooth are painless and push straight to Strava. The device has great battery life, is very accurate, has great signal, and has handled anything I throw at it. Rain, mud, crashes, drops, the thing just keeps going. This is my first Garmin device but I have been very happy with it. Easy to use and customize, and pair with HR monitors or speed/cadence meters. I'm sure I'll be using this for years to come.

    No Problems - Just PRs

    Happy to be sporting a Garmin

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The Garmin Edge 510 is an excellent cycling computer. The display is great and the use of the out front mount makes it easy to see while on the saddle. The Heart Rate monitor and Cadence/speed sensor make winter bike trainer sessions a lot more bearable. Setting adjustments and the interface take some getting used to but after a few youtube videos you should be good to go.

    I definitely recommend downloading the Garmin Connect app on your smart phone for immediate post ride data, route map and effort/distance charts. My only complaint is the on ride map. Although I have yet to send a route to my garmin, I doubt I will use this feature. The map only displays an arrow for your direction and lines to indicate your turns.

    Excellent buy if you are not going to rely on the gps for navigation.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    If you've been using the 500 the 510 is a worthy upgrade. Its a been simpler, more intuitive and looks a bit sleeker. The touch screen rocks.

    Garmin 510

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a fantastic hunk of technology. Once the data is uploaded to Garmin's site you see a graphic display of your exercise. The only negativity I have is once in a while the cadence will record upwards of 220. This is because I trail my left foot in a horizontal position when going down a longer hill. This with a bit of "bounce" records a erroneous cadence number. Other than that I would highly recommend the unit!

    Failed again!

    I am now on my third 510, Garmin has now sent me 2 refurbished replacements. After upgrading to the latest software the computer died, all data lost. When I called tech support they didn't seem surprised, sure wish they would trouble shot their products. I caution anyone interested in this product. I wonder how long this one will last..........

    Failed again!

    Happy Strava Hunting!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I received the Garmin 510 as a gift. I LOVE IT! I've never owned a Garmin product before, but found it easy to use. I haven't had any trouble with it except losing the cadence sensor magnet. However, I was able to buy a piece that would stay on my bike more securely.

    My boyfriend has the Garmin 810 and is happy with it. I didn't see the need for a GPS turn-by-turn. It has failed on us, by telling us to turn too late or not at all.

    I think that the 510 is perfect!

    Solid Upgrade

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a solid upgrade from the older Edge 500. The screen is easy to see & the extra space is great for those who love to see LOTS of Data. I'm not a huge fan of the touch screen, especially while you're sweating all over it & have to press on the screen several times just to change the page. Oh well, overall I'm pleased but would certainly like some normal button function as well.

    I had to buy two of them...

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this as a gift for my father-in-law which made my brother-in-law jealous. I ended up having to buy him one too. Yea, I'm nice. They're both road bike cyclists and they love this thing. They always rave about the accuracy of the GPS. They used to use their phones when they were cycling, but can never go back now.

    This thing rocks my socks

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Was using a friend's Edge 500 for a few weeks, but was bummed that I couldn't auto-update Strava after an exercise (yes, I'm addicted to Strava). After some searching on the web, I found there is a site called copymysports.com (previously garminsync), which allows you a way to auto send files from your 510 to your Strava account. Can't do it with the 500 because you need the Bluetooth connection. It seems a little shady how you need to perform the transfer, but I don't have any secure info on my Strava or GarminConnect account, so I'm not too worried.

    The 510 unit itself is a bit bigger than the 500. Still can fit on my 90mm stem no problem. I have an older FSA 31.8 clamp diameter handlebar, and am a little disappointed in how the main bike mount fits -- there is just barely enough room on the fat section of the handlebar to get the bar mount assembled and not tilted at an angle. Really think this is more of an issue with the old handlebar vs. the mount though... I'd have the same trouble with the BarFly.

    The display is sweet, and the touch screen is really easy to use, even with gloves on (I wish Apple could figure this out with their iPhones....!). Took a little while to figure out how to get the HR to work on the unit, but once I did, it's a strong signal. Just an FYI, but when you get the unit, the HR functionality of the 510 is not enabled/turned on, so you need to go in and turn it on. No HR monitor strap to device sync needed.

    Lastly, I just want to state that I don't work for garminsync/copymysports, just want to let all you fellow Strava geeks know about this. Really bummed that Garmin and Strava haven't found a way to work together on making the uploads to Strava easier (come on Garmin!).

    Such a great tool for your arsenal

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My girlfriend purchased me the Garmin Edge 510 after I using another product for 6-7 months and it was a HUGE upgrade. The HRM (heart rate monitor) is very accurate and was an extremely helpful feature this last winter on the trainer. The cadence/speed sensor has yet to give me any grief and It's survived sweat storms, rain storms, and general bike mayhem.

    One piece of feedback (that I should send to Garmin) is in regards to user interface. The display will dim after 5, 10, 15 etc. seconds. When you tap the screen to wake it up, it assumes you want to change to a different screen (say, navigation or virtual partner) and fills the garmin screen with navigation tools, rather than simply wake up. You can keep the display lit up permanently but it consumes a mildly hefty chunk of battery.

    A second issue I personally experience is that the bluetooth connection to my iPhone is extremely unreliable. I've gone through multiple troubleshooting steps for my phone (restoring software and setting device up as new, replacing the phone etc.) and the issue persists.

    Again, nothing huge, but the more you know...

    Such a great tool for your arsenal

    Works great so far

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I got this Garmin Edge as an upgrade to a combination of different devices I had been previously been using all at once. So far it has worked great for consolidating all of the devices into one neat little package. Looking forward to getting in some good rides with it in the spring & summer.

    Failed when I needed it most

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this as an upgrade from my old Polar HRM. It worked great for a while as I used it to train for KOMs and Doubles. On a couple of recent rides the Heart Rate and Cadence would go blank after about 100 miles. During an event in which I had set personal records the Altimeter went haywire and at the end the ride was not upload able via USB or bluetooth. I have had it for under a year so Garmin's tech support is sending a replacement, but I really wish I went with a different brand. For the price; it is a real let down.

    Has it all!

      By far one of the best bike computers out there. This has everything you'll need and more! I was hoping for a better more sleep design but still am happy with it. I will be using it over the next few months and hopefully have more insight at that time.

      Will this work with Giant Ridesense ?
