Garmin 500 - Excellent GPS

I purchased a Garmin 500 GPS several years ago and have used it extensively. It provides more information then I can possibly use, the only questionable bit of data regards altitude but most of the time it's pretty close to correct in that category, too. It's light, easy to use, has a long battery life - even with the night light illuminated - and is quick to recharge. The only issue I ever had was it needed to be reprogrammed (zeroed out) after nearly three years. This took a few minutes after I checked the Garmin Website where the rebooting details were instantly available.

Pros: Light, accurate, provides a myriad of data (more than most riders could ever want or need). Good battery life. Reliable!

Cons: Required rebooting after three years but this cannot be considered a real fault.

Very good - alternative to wheel mount

Wheel mount will be more accurate for speed. Trips are logged and can be viewed birdseye on Garmion Connect, but there is no mapping available on this unit. Garmin cnnect software (not as nice as online version) is available for download if you don't want to connect online all the time. User can modify display to show whatever (speed, HR, time, etc) you want in a multitude of combinations to you liking.
Battery (charged via USB) lasts 12+ hours so great for epic rides.

Pros: Ease of use and user friendly interface, Garmin connect features.

Cons: Mount seems a bit mickey-mouse. If your o-rings fail your 400.00 computer is gone. A bit expensive relative to a cateye if that's all you want for features.

Great cycling computer

An awesome, light, and compact computer/gps. Can select the number of fields on each of the 3 screens of upto 8 fields. The heart rate monitor and speed/cadence package is well worth it. Allows you to download or upload rides to your computer (Mac included). Can import your rides to google earth for a record of that epic ride. Good battery life and accurate GPS. Relatively easy to use. Can use a course option which essentially pits you against yourself on a route you do on a regular basis (ie commute home or your training loop). You can see how well you're doing compared to the time you recorded that route.

Pros: light, good battery life. Altimeter is pretty accurate, good GPS attenna.

Cons: Wished there was a screen that would draw a map of your current course. Can only see saved maps via course function. Unable to download maps like the edge 705
