Garmin Edge 520 Review

Review and how-to coming soon

Did a quick test run with OpenStreetMap on the Garmin 520. Much better than the stock map.

On the bike

Some quick impressions of the Garmin Edge 520:

  • Solid little unit, feels sturdy.
  • Buttons are solid but I liked the touch screen of the 510 better
  • Interface is very Garmin… Not so intuitive
  • Acquires satellites quickly
  • Tracks well on the trail
  • Syncs with Garmin Connect when plugged in
  • Garmin Connect has nifty info and maps (that you make too!)
  • Good battery life
  • Bike mount is solid
