So I turn on my 510 today and all my info was gone, my bike profile and user are all gone, when I tried to enter them again, the unit is not responding. everytime you press the start button the unit just shuts off. I also did a factory reset and still the same. Anyone here ever had this problem. Can't find any info on the internet and my only option is to send it back to Garmin which they have a fixed fee of $80.

I had similar issues with my second Edge 510 recently (first replaced for other software problems).

Mine was out of the 3 month(?) refurbished unit guarantee period so just had to pay the $84AUD to get another one.

Kind of a pain that what could be such a good device, seems to have so many software bugs...

You could always sell the new unit you get to put some $ toward an alternative unit?

The 510 has always had issues which is why I have stayed with the 500. The new Edge 520 is supposed to address all the issues with the 510. I'll still let it hit the streets and wait a firmware release or two before I upgrade.
