Garmin Edge 510 Bike GPS -

While we thought that the leap from the Garmin 800 to 810 was massive, it pales in comparison to the advancement from the Edge 500 to the Edge 510 Bike Computer. Garmin has done away with the 500's button mashing, instead opting for a sophisticated touch screen interface. And while Edge 510 isn't quite at the same level of functionality as the new 810, for the price, we can't imagine a more powerful training computer.

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 HRMs or powermeters), 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 not 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 Bike Computer is available in the color Black and includes a bike mount, USB cable, AC charger, and a user-manual.

Positive Reviews:

This is a great product to have, especially if you geek out on numbers from your ride. There isn't much else that will give you as much information on your ride than a Garmin. That being said, they take it one step further and give you the ability to customize exactly what information you see on the screen. Essentially customization is completely built into the unit so you can have many different settings or profiles to coincide with what readouts you want or what bike you are using. Pairing with a powermeter is simple and a great way to measure your results. I use mine specifically for mountain biking so I keep the unit in my pocket or hydration pack during the ride so I can't attest to the readout visibility. I do wish there was a lock feature for the unit as if you hit the start/stop button during your ride, you only get part of your ride recorded. However the battery life has been impressive and can go quite a few rides without needing a charge.

Nice upgrade from Edge 500

I have been using an Edge 500 for several years and until now it was the best non-map cycling computer I had run across. The Edge 510, while not perfect, is a nice upgrade. It offers all the features of the 500 and allows for a lot more screen configuration options. I especially like the bluetooth feature and phone apps that allow easy wireless updating to the web. It's a little larger than the 500 but not too large for competitive riding.

The touch screen is not a problem for setup and control of the unit; I find it makes the unit easy to configure and switch between bike and ride profiles (it's easier then trying to figure out which buttons do what...). However, it is very difficult to control the screen display or change anything while riding. This was the reason I rated the 510 a 4; otherwise it's a solid 5.

Have had a Garmin for cycling since it's cycling specific inception with the 305. It has come along way. I replaced my Edge 500 with this one. You can still format the screens to your personal preference, any so much more. I like that it connects to your smartphone, and after a ride just push SAVE and after a minute, your ride gets uploaded to the Garmin website. Unlike other Garmin cycling devices, the touchscreen ones (like this) do not offer a setting for changing the contrast. So your only choice is to up the backlight setting, which burns the battery a bit. So, riding in sunny so CA with shades on, makes the screen harder to read than the traditional Edge models - hope Garmin fixes this with a software update; if this had a contrast adjustment, would have been a 5 star rating.

Carter at Backcountry.com on 09/30/2013

this is a great tool to have for your bike. It gives much valuable information about your ride and you can get as general or specific as you want. The Garmin website is also a great addition to this piece as you can upload your information and compare previous rides, see maps of your workouts, ect. The heart rate function is also very valuable and easy to connect. The lage display is also very nice. I would suggest getting the out front bike mount when you get this unit. Much easer to read when the unit in a little further out from the handlebar.

Get ready to turn into a geek!

Manual provided insufficient would recommend downloading the online manual.
Took a little time setting up with my turbo trainer but really great to be able to analyse my indoor training efforts.

Negative Reviews:

Screen cracked for no reason

Grade and total elevation screwy on this one. Garmin 500 much more accurate. Screen just broke as I was riding yesterday. Day not hot or particularly sunny. Clerk at local REI store hesitant to take back and swap out for new one. Asked if this was a new policy because this is one of the main reasons to buy electronic devices from REI. Clerk said no policy change and then took back cautioning that she was helping me out and that REI might not return defective products in future. I have had to return Edge 405 that was terribly inconsistent and Garmin 500 because of random freezing and HRM problem. Garmin now admits problem with previous "premium" HRM strap but has not recalled. New strap has three elaectrode sensors in strap.

Garmin 510 is a great product once configured and working properly. Only problem other than cracked screen was having to turn off weather as I live in fire country and alerts would completely black out screen until cleared (about every 5 minutes with no way to turn off or minimize)

Have found Garmin to be inconsistent in both quality and manufacturing. Wish REI would start hammering on them as manufacturer for high return rate than customer just trying to get workable product. Return policy is main reason to shop REI as most products are becoming over priced even with 10% rebate.

Neutral Reviews:

Its acceptable

I got this to replace my worn out Edge 305. This is a bit more fancy and the GPS satellite capture is awesome. I like the multiple bike storage and the ability to name them. I think the mount is an improvement.

I am not impressed with the menu system. I really don't like the touch screen either. It was simple to push a button to advance to the next screen, now I am supposed to swipe I guess. After using a cell phone that has incredible response to the touch screen, the Garmin just pales.

The UI needs work.

Other than that, it still does at least what the 305 did so its getting the job done. But I really would not replace my 305 with this. Well except for the superior GPS and mounting options.
