HEADS UP: Garmin Edge 530 Review – In Detail Warts and all

Generally, I like it a lot so far and I would still stick by some of my earlier comments that it is the benchmark, performance bike computer against which all others should be compared. However, it’s not perfect. Here are my gripes-to-date, apologies to the Garmin detractors as it’s not a very long list (I’m working on it but Garmin have got better in recent years at actually testing devices before releasing them!)

Don’t get me wrong. It’s a nice device. The point of this post is to be open about negative experiences rather than regurgitate the PR marketing gloss from Garmin.
