If you've ever tried to change screens or adjust settings on your Garmin while riding, you know that removing your hand to push the right combination of buttons is just an accident waiting to happen. The Garmin Edge Remote was specifically designed to interface wirelessly with your Edge 1000 to make seeing all of your metrics quick and simple.

Good thing to have for 520
I got one of these remote and love it. I wasn't sure if it would be that useful, but it is.
I got multiple bikes but one head unit. Can I have two of these remotes attached to the same 520? Or only one remote be paired to the 520?
Good concept, poorly executed
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The "hard" mount is undersized and will not fit any oversize handlebars - ridiculous and useless. The quick release mount is similar to the Edge quick release, therefore not a true quick release since you would have difficulty mounting this in the dark. The whole unit seems unnecessarily large and bulky, taking a lot of precious handlebar space for a little convenience. The configuration as a large thick disc limits reasonable mounting options as you could not for example place on or near the brake hoods. A small rectangle would be better. I bought two - one works fine, one will not sync and is being returned.
