which doesn't equal longer battery life.

1000 - 15hrs
810 - 17hrs
510 - 20hrs
500 - 18hrs

Garmin 500 with riding useful features - check
iPhone 5 with plenty of apps, navi and what not etc - check

...so I don't see the need of this :p

Right. I'm saying bigger device does not necessarily trend positively with less battery life. There's a ton more trade offs involved.

Is the software going to be anywhere close to useable? Or crap like all the past Garmin Edge releases.

I'm sticking with the Edge800

I'm at a loss what the problem is :noidea:

You can use free maps, routing is easy. Sure, the PC software could have a better interface and the OSX implementation is hampered, but it's a far cry from unusable.

How effin big?!?

I wish Garmin would revamp the 500 with the GLONASS satellite system. I like the fom factor of the 500 but I'm finding it frustratingly unreliable at times.

It looks definitely bigger than 800/810, but it's still ok IMO

Compared to 510:

I am not positive about this new Garmin Edge 1000. I am not going to upgrade my Edge 800.
Here is a first preview of DC Rainmaker. The review comes in May or June.

http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2014/04/garm ... -1000.html

Although the Edge 1000 has some nice features, it is not good enough for the price they ask for it.
The two thing I like is segments but no compatibility with Strava and that is wrong in my opinion and the ability to receive text messages (but you need a phone to receive = too bad)
The Battery has not enough power and only 15 hours when you don't use the map view.

I wish there was a smartphone that is completely waterproof, ant+ compatible, shock proof, bluetooth 4.x, nice apps with segments and Strava compatibility and 24 hours power.
This will kill the edge 1000 easily. Maybe the new Samsung Galaxy S5? It is already water proof.

You can still upload as usual to strava with the 1000 but minus the fancy features you get if you upload to GC.

Its a bit like Sony marketing a camera to be used for vimeo instead of youtube. EPIC FAIL!

Im sticking with my edge 800. Great product.

It's got to be the size of the antenna in the 500 that's the problem. My 800's GPS was fantastic compared to my 500 and they're supposed to use the same chip.

The USB port on my 800 died so I grabbed a 510. In a lot of ways, it feels like a downgrade. Has already crashed a couple of times and I'm not stoked on the interface.

The Edge 800 was a great bikecomputer when it came on the market. The 810 and the 1000 are more upgrades but nothing stunning in my opinion.
A brand that will enter the market with a compact sport smartphone for 500 dollar with ant+, bluetooth 4.x and some good apps (segments, gps, etc.) and good battery have a winner on there hands.

A smartphone is out of the question for a reason I already explained: a capacitive screen is less than ideal when it rains (and good luck if you wear winter gloves.

It's only a winner for those who are afraid to do real riding :twisted:
