I've decided to buy a dedicated GPS bike computer. The iPhone has been great but I worry about battery and falling off with a £500 phone sat out front and all exposed !
I've done a ton of reading and after deciding against needing mapping so ruled the Garmin edge 800 out, I'm torn between the garmin 500 and the new garmin 510
The differences as far as I can see are that the 500 has a smaller grey scale screen, is a smaller unit and doesn't have any smartphone connectivity but does everything well and is widely used.
The 510 is larger, colour screen and will upload to a smartphone for broadcasting/updating etc but is around £70 more.
Does anyone have these or any other units and can recommend anything ?
Also any good deals about ? The cheapest I have found for both is at handtec. Roughly £130 vs £200 give or take.
Any advice gratefully received.
