    The Garmin Edge 520 Cycle Computer is the first device with Strava live segment challenges. This aerodynamic GPS bike computer is packed with advanced analysis features like time in zone, cycling-specific VO2 max and recovery time (when used with a power meter and heart rate monitor). It has a 2.3” high resolution colour display, providing great visibility in all lighting conditions, in a lightweight compact device. When paired with your compatible smartphone (Android 4.3 and above and iphone 4S and later) and the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app, Edge 520 offers live tracking, smartphone notifications (allowing you to receive text and call notifications while riding), social media sharing, weather updates and automatic wireless uploads. Once your ride is complete, the data can be automatically sent to Garmin Connect™, Garmin’s online community where you can analyse post-ride stats, including cycling dynamics and save, plan and share your rides.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin Edge 520 This is very good product: lightweight, intuitive to use and it measures all metrics that a keen cyclist might be interested in, although you'll need added sensors for that (heart, cadence, power, etc). Whilst it is expensive, it is money well spent; I would recommend to another.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact with great battery life I bought this to replace a 10 year old 605 edge. The 520 has about the same screen size and no touch which is what I wanted. I used it for a very long event and was very impressed with the battery over lasting 20 hours. Also able to load a map in using various web guidance, but the space for maps is a little disappointing - 90MB won't quite do the whole of the south of England. Halfords didn't offer a colour choice and I ended up with a white but it looks good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality GPS Computer, but could use better maps. The data display and recording is top notch, but buy the 820 if you're looking for something good at navigation.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from it's pretty good but with really annoying defects This device gives me all the data I need at the moment. I usually cycle with 8 data points and it is a little hard to see at times with so many frames but I'm getting used to it now. Setting it up to the cadence and speed sensors was a doddle and once registered, picks them up pretty quickly whenever I start another ride. So what don't I like? (1) I've cycled maybe 150-200 miles with this and although both GPS and GLONASS are active, there's been a couple of time where it skips a heartbeat and recovers in a hurry. (2) I map out a route and download onto the 520. However, there's been a few times when it doesn't navigate. Doesn't tell me to turn left/right, instead after a 10-20 metres down the road, I get told I'm OFF COURSE. This is annoying. I've had to do a few uturns. Also related to this, on one occasion, it told me to turn left which was impossible cos it was someones drive and there was no left turn for quite a distance either end. After a lot of to-ing and fro-ing, I discovered that I had to turn right. (3) You can setup alerts which I use. I use one with a timer so I know when to replenish myself. I also have one to control my cadence on long rides. Since I also use the map to navigate, it alerts me on upcoming turns. The problem is that they all have the same alert sound. The alert shows up on the screen for a couple of seconds so if you're not in a position to check the screen (which is quite often on busy roads), then you have no idea what that alert was for. (4) Lastly, upon completing my route, it congratulated me on completing the ride but I couldn't for the life of me find a way to stop and save the ride. The timer kept on going and I eventually had to turn the device off and lose my ride. This happened just the once but if it can happen once, it can happen again. In conclusion, it's good but too many glitches for a device that costs £200 and it doesn't even come with a case. I think I might shop around a bit more when I come to upgrading this.
