This looks like a great cycle computer, definitely a lot cheaper than the Polar range.

Fast R...I am also in the market and also posed a few questions a week back....I received comments that the Edge 500 had issues with freezing screens, etc....but apparently the lastest firmware has sorted that. To be honest, I have just ordered one from EasyGIS... :). A mate of mine has one...no issues at all and he downloads all his rides to gamin connect site...good luck!! I am leaving POLAR as they do not support Apple Mac and I do not want to load the dual software on my Macbook to run both Windows and Snow Leopard...

The edge 500 is awesome. Small, analyzes everything you could need from your rides, and is reasonably priced. You can't go wrong.

We are MOUNTIES...he has never had that problem, but hey a GPS is GPS and obsctructions may sometimes interfere with satelites.....in JHB, my car GPS sometimes has issues amongst all the tall building structures....
