With the Edge 510, Garmin brings touchscreen technology to their mid-priced 500 series.

But a revamped user interface is just the beginning. The Edge 510 delivers all the GPS enabled functions of its predecessor, along with brand new "connected" features to push your cycling experience to the next level.

The Edge 510 still tracks distance, speed, and altitude via GPS, just like the 500. But where this new computer really stands out is in its ability to offer live tracking, auto uploads to social networking sites, Bluetooth/smart phone connectivity, and weather alerts -- features Garmin calls part of their new "Connected" family. The Edge 510 also supports activity profiles, allowing you to configure data and settings based on which your bike riding and which terrain is on the itinerary.

The 510 touchscreen display has been designed for easy operation with full fingered gloves and is built tough enough to withstand off-road abuse.

This Edge 510 base model includes the head unit and basic accessories only (see below), but is compatible with Garmin's heart rate strap, cadence sensor, and ANT+ compatible devices, all of which are sold separately. A bundled version which includes heart rate and cadence accessories is available separately as well.

fun toy, but expensive and full of bugs

I like the 510 a lot, but there's some serious bugs that still need to be worked out. Keep in mind that this is for a device that's been out for a year (ie garmin kind of sucks sometimes). Biggest complaints

1 - the courses feature doesn't work that well. It will register your distance as being about 10% lower than what you actually ride, which also makes your average speed 10% lower.

2 - the livetrack feature has issues too. My problem with it is that the 510 keeps telling me that my phone has disconnected (iphone 4) which I believe is caused by garmin's phone app crashing repeatedly.

Both of these problems have been reported by many people on garmin's forum. A few things that I think are great about it

1 - the inclusion of GLONASS I think really helps with location accuracy. I used to use a 500 and it had problems whenever I rode in a lot of tree cover or mountainous terrain. The 510 doesn't have those issues.

2 - when you ride a course (and don't mind the issue above) it gives you great turn directions before you turn. Makes navigation really possible with the 510. It also doesn't have the 500's problem of telling you you're off course every 5 seconds.

3 - uploading/downloading files via bluetooth / phone. It's very nice not having to remove the 510 from my bike and plug it in to do anything with it. I just take it off once every 3 or 4 or 5 rides to recharge.

Edge 510 is easier to read and use than the Edge 500.

I upgraded from a Garmin 500. The 510 is easier to read as the screen is larger. I like the touch screen. It took a little getting used to for it to work. I like the automatic transfer of ride data to Garmin Connect. It has more features than I will ever use.

Good and Dependaable

It does exactly what Garmin says it will do. Its dependable as expected from Garmin. But pricey. Garmin owns this until someone can make a product as useful and dependable

Half finished product

I had high hopes for this garmin but so far I've been really disappointed. I mainly purchased this model so my wife could see where I was at since I mainly train on my own. All the tracking features (at least for the iphone) are very unreliable and rarely work if it works at all. I'm sure the app is to blame for most of the issues but that doesn't matter since this $300 bike computer needs the phone app to use its full abilities. The few times everything has worked it worked pretty good but when it only works 1 out 10 times at best that is unacceptable. For right now I would probably save your money and buy the older model and just use Map My Ride app for tracking which has never let me down.

My edge 510 is on the latest firmware and my iphone app is also on the latest update.

Does what it's suppose to.

First time using a garmin.

It gets a GPS signal very quickly compared to my Nike running watch.

I don't really use the automatic upload features, because I use strava. I don't really care for the garmin connect.

I used my iPhone before and it worked great and it uploaded the data automatically to strava, but that would drain my battery.

And so I moved to the garmin and thus far I've been happy with it. I plan on getting a powermeter and pairing it.

Expensive, Questionable Extra Features

Used it for twelve cycling days this past spring on recreational rides for a total of 328 miles. Good points: Improved GPS connection using new Glasnoss satellites, did away with difficult to press side buttons and moved to a color screen. Bad points: Social media connectivity is not worth the extra money when smartphones with good cycling apps will soon have the same features (and you bring your phone on the ride anyway), the screen is very difficult to read in bright sunlight, the computer still has the flimsy USB cover which can allow water inside and cause it to malfunction (Garmin could have used a dock or 310XT sort of connection to make this more waterproof), and Garmin continues to offer their loose basic mount as a standard mount, a mount whose lack of security has spawned popular and more secure mounts that place the computer in front of the bar.

outstanding computer

When my Garmin 500 finally died after two years of rain and abuse, I purchased the 510. Ignore Bike Radar and Cycling News - their reviews of the 510 strongly indicate that they didn't spend much time with it. The 510 is a MUCH better computer than the 500. It has a more accurate GPS receiver, a larger & easier to read screen, and a number of thoughtful functions to discover as you dig into the menus. This is a classy piece of hardware.

Connectivity issues resolved

The first week I had connectivity problems pairing to my HTC One phone but a new software revision solved that problem. Now it works great and I use it biking, kayaking, hiking, and even on motorcycle runs. I also have the Garmin GPS60sx but the Edge is much smaller and easier to carry and the Garminconnect web site keeps track of all my activities effortlessly.

I also love the configurable screens so accessing the info I want among the plethera of data the Edge collects is quick and easy.

I haven't used the Edge to follow a predetermined course which may be a bit of a challenge without street names. Wish I could have traded in the GPS60sx to upgrade to the Edge 810.

This bike GPS is great.

Gets GPS lock in seconds, the live tracking is cool and loved by friends and family who can watch my ride progress on big events. Highly recommended!

Works great and can see the numbers well.

I had the garmin 500 but it died and had to get a new one. I stepped up to this and I love it. The touch screen works better when switching from bike to bike.

Very slick

Configurable screens are really cool. I've got more to learn about its capabilities.

I had 1 inexplicable shutdown during a ride when I was swiping screen to screen. Not sure what that was about.

I love the Garmin Connect link w my phone. I never need to connect the device to a computer at all.

Comparing this to the Edge 500 is like comparing a Cadillac to a Chevy. Comparing it to a 810 is like comparing a Cadillac to a Bentley. You probably can figure that out by looking at the prices.

Great training tool!

I have had the Garmin 510 now for a couple months and love it. It was an upgrade from the Garmin 500. The touch screen works nicely, and the added features above the 500 unit are sweet.
