Can't decide if I want a computer or not.

So I love strava, its fun to me to record and keep track of my goals and stuff.

But my phone's built in GPS is horrible, to the point where its distance tracking is off by miles, it teleports me around, and is generally a mess.

Instead of buying a new $600+ phone, I was thinking of maybe buying a bike computer.

LBS has both the garmin 520 and 500 ( with HR, speed/cadence sensors ) for good prices, but i'm really not sure if they are worth the cost.

Live speed tracking, accurate distances, time, and stuff like that sounds awesome, but the price points for a computer are at the level where its costly enough that I'm a bit heasitant if the trade off of features is worth over what my phone can provide.
