Very satisfied Edge 530 owner here. I cannot see how anyone would want to use the 530 for on the fly navigation. It works fine for following a course that has been loaded and that's easy enough to do...

This sounds like my experience with the Garmin Edge 520. Sensors would drop and reconnect in mid-ride. I even had a firmware update happen in the middle of a ride. I finally stopped connecting to my...

Another vote for the RWGPS app here. Works great! Some of the dashboard apps are nice, depending on how much information you want on a screen.

Many years ago I removed all speed information from my main Garmin screen. Now it shows HR, Grade %, Cadence, Gears (thanks, Di2!) and that's it. Other information is available by scrolling, but this...

My lesson learned is that I care about PRs, but not overall standings so much. I never was the fastest guy on a bike, but I'm still having plenty of fun.

I used the d-fly unit paired with a Garmin Edge 520 for a couple years. It worked - pretty much. No lockups or interruptions to shifting, but sometimes the 520 and the d-fly would drop connection. In...
