Sharpen your cycling performance with Edge 500, a lightweight GPS-based cycling computer for performance-driven cyclists. Loaded with data, Edge 500 tracks your distance, speed, location and elevation with high sensitivity GPS. Add an ANT+® compatible heart rate monitor, speed/cadence sensor or compatible power meter for a finely-tuned analysis of your ride.
The Edge 500 attaches easily to the stem or handlebars of your bike with its low-profile bike mount. The Edge attaches easily to the mount with a simple quarter-turn. When you're ready to ride, just power on your Edge, acquire GPS satellites and go. Edge 500 features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix® satellite prediction to calculate your position faster.
During your ride, Edge 500 measures your speed, distance, time, calories burned, altitude, climb and descent, and records this data for your review. For extra-precise climb and descent data, Edge 500 also incorporates a barometric altimeter to pinpoint changes in elevation.
All Edge 500 versions work with third-party ANT+-enabled power meters to display your power output in watts as you ride. This valuable data shows you how hard you're working, regardless of conditions affecting your ride, so you can train smarter. Some versions also ship with a digital heart rate monitor and speed/cadence sensor.
Other helpful training features include a Courses feature, which helps you compare successive rides over the same route, as well as Auto Pause, Auto Lap and temperature readings. Edge also alerts you if you’re moving but the timer is not running.
When paired with a Garmin heart rate monitor, Edge 500 tracks heart beats per minute and uses your heart rate for advanced calorie computation, so you know how many calories you're burning. Train in a certain heart-rate zone to improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to past performance over the same ride.
Once your ride’s done, connect Edge 500 to your computer with the included USB cable to analyse your performance. With a simple click, you can join a worldwide network of cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts through Garmin Connect™, a one-stop site for data analysis and sharing.

Great value Has all the information for my needs
I purchased the Garmin Edge 500 after reading a lot of reviews online. I am very pleased with it. I got it with the HR monitor and cadence. I do a lot of cross country MT biking and enjoy check the stats at the end of the ride. The cadence is not as important as the HR monitor. I purchased the unit from Probikekit and as they had advertised, it was about 20 days till it showed up. However, once I received the package, it was exactly what I ordered and I saved big $ ordering through these guys. I would highly recommend ordering through them if you want a great deal. Everywhere else I checked wanted about $100 more for the same product. I really like the it and use it every time I ride. Happy Trails!
I have been using my Garmin 500 for over a year now after trying previously using a a Polar computer. My coach lives at the other end of the country and I download my training sessions from the Garmin to a website and he analyses the information of my ride. The Garmin is much more user friendly than the Polar that you really needed to carry the manual with it in case you pushed the wrong button. I only spent a short amount of time setting up the Garmins 3 display screens which was surprisingly easy and I can easily rotate the display screens during my ride to find whatever info I need. The bike setup was easy. The computer unit itself mounts well and is tough. The screen is still like new and I place it in a small soft lined case whenever I transport my bike. Charging up the unit is great using either your computer or a separate power charger. Worth every cent.
I brought this unit on sale over the easter weekend and am amazed at the ease of set up/use and the reliability of the tracking. This unit has heaps of useful features allowing you to race yourself over a previous ridden course and prepare workouts prior to going out for a ride.
A great training tool.
