Re: Garmin recommendations.

I concur with Jay, with the additional thought that the 530 screen is brighter, yet the battery drains slower than the 520 (in my experience).

West pointed me to the 530 and I have been very happy with it... it has a great battery life and it works... I had a touch screen and ultimately I did not like it especially in the winter with long finger gloves... the 530 is controlled with buttons.  I strongly recommend this unit over the 520+

My Garmin Edge 500 has stopped working so I am in the market for a new one. I will probably go for a 520 Plus, but I am open to recommendations for one of the 800 or 1000 series if one of those seem worth the price. Pros? Cons? Opinions?


Feel free to reply just to me, luporini@..., and if anyone wants to hear responses, just let me know.
