    I am not one for reviews but I feel I have to review tis item. Just to summarize:
    The Garmin device 530 edge is brilliant. I have used it 5 days a week since I bought it late April. It is easy to set up and works like a dream. The buttons are easy to use when you get the hang of it as we are so used to touchscreen. It is very accurate as I have HR monitor Polar H10 which works flawlessly. I use the Garmin cadence and shows up every time. The Bluetooth is picked up easily and even use my phone as a hotspot

    I have used Komoot and Strava with this and again works as it should. It is small but I can easily see everything on it. It comes with the cycle mount and host of other accessories except a case.

    My only gripe is that today it just would not turn on and I have lost 2 days of data as I did not sync it with my Garmin connect. I know of some people that said the same thing on internet forums. Amazon have been brilliant and ordered me a replacement asap. Such a shame this rather expensive device just decided it would not turn on today and only owned it for literally 3 weeks.

    Regardless of the above this product is brilliant in size and what you can do on this and way cheaper than the elder 830. That has touchscreen and map navigation but I use my phone for that so not needed. Expect to pay around £170 when it is on a deal otherwise £200 -220.

    I’ve been using the Garmin Edge 530 for a while now, and I have to say, it’s a great performance GPS cycling/bike computer. For the price, I would say it’s one of the best around. The mapping feature is really helpful, especially when I’m exploring new routes. The display is easy to read, and I appreciate the customizable data fields. Plus, the device is really durable and can handle all sorts of weather conditions. If you’re looking for a reliable bike computer, I would definitely recommend the Garmin Edge 530.

    What a product . I’ve now done a couple of hundred miles under its guidance and am loving it . I’ve purchased this along with the radar and they have changed my road riding .
    Setting known points or routes is so easy with the Garmin website . Once you e created a route you simply upload to this device and you’re away . The screen and size is small however I have got on fine with following the directions . Mapping is current and well lay out with route preferences capability given within the garmin website when creating your routes . You can also set it to go and track a route you ride then save this as a route for future use .
    I was able to take all my cycling routes I’ve riden in the past and upload them as routes to my edge .

    There is a lot to like about this GPS, it integrates with Camoot using a PC for creating a ride or using a phone while on the fly. The battery life easily covers a day’s ride. The mounting kit is very good quality. Initially the screen looks a bit limited but in bright sunlight it comes into it’s own. So that’s the good stuff the bad points are as flows. The software is so fragmented it’s hard to remember where to find bits of the menu. The layout of the buttons would suit a left handed person better “what were Garmin thinking?. The buttons on mine were defective and some times worked this maybe a known problem with older stock. Mine was bought on a Amazon deal for £160 an excellent price but when trying to get it replaced after a week initially only a refund was offered. After some heated words Amazon did do a direct replacment. To summarise this is a Marmite product I like it so it’s a keeper.

    Excellent product. Seems a little expensive at first but worth paying for. Easy to set up, easy to use, great battery life, clear screen and a robust unit. Easily connects to Strava and great app to use on phone, pc etc to review all your stats. Perfect for sharing maps and routes with others. Would recommend.

    Bought this to use when cycling abroad and other parts of the UK we were not familiar with. Initial set up was a little frustrating but once it was paired with Strava its great. I use my laptop with OS Maps to plan a route so I can make sure the route isnt too hilly and am avoiding where possible dangerous or busy roads. Downloading these from Strava to the Garmin is straightforward and really accurate.
    Some reviews are critical of the buttons but if you use it regularly and are prepared to spend a bit of time “practicing” it soon becomes fairly intuitive. I have cycled in various locations on hot bright sunny days and the screen is always visible so I dont really understand some negative comments here.
    Overall its a great bit of kit and has transformed our cycling-no more stopping every 5 minutes to check the Mobile phone I have mine mounted on my bars its easy to see.
