Re: Garmin recommendations.

Having been a devout  Garmin user for many years  I recently went for aStages  Dash L50 instead based on a positive dcrainmaker review,  Similar price to the 530.  It pretty much does  everything the 530 does but  has  an absolutely fantastic display which is great as your eyes become tired.  Also  has pretty good maps like the more expensive Garmins.  Seems to work great.  The only thing I dislike about it is the mount. I much prefer the Garmin 1/4 turn system.

As others have suggested the DCrainmaker site has some great reviews of all your options

Hi Donna,


I recommend that you take a look at the reviews at, it’s my go to reference for cycling tech. As noted by Jay and Nick, the 530 is a vast improvement over the 520 plus. The 530 review is at:



There are also in-depth reviews of other bike computers, so you can get a good idea of the competition as well.

Subject: [public info] Garmin recommendations.


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.
