scott.g.gowrote a review of Garmin Edge 530 Bike Computer on September 26, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
All I wanted was to be able to show up at an unfamiliar trail network with a route inputted from trailforks and be able to ride with a quick glance down at junctions to know which way to turn. It does a billion other things, possibly well, but not that. It beeped incessantly on sections of trail with no junction but once you're at a junction it had no interest in indicating the direction to go. When I guessed the direction incorrectly it would indicate that I was off course but it would never tell the right way. It was worse flow than stopping at every junction, taking off glove, pulling out phone and opening trailforks to try to figure out which way to go. I am going to invent a little roadbook app or device like the rally racers use. Arrows at odometer readings that you can read at 100mph. The Garmin Edge is for people that don't actually like to ride but prefer the idea of riding.
