For the record.

This is the Garmin we've all been waiting for. The Garmin Edge 520, with 2.3” of vibrant high-resolution color screen, features enhanced mapping capabilities, text and call notifications from your phone, and topping it all off, integrated Strava Live Segment functionality so you can complete segments and follow your progress in real time. Talk about taking virtual racing to a whole new level. The new display provides clarity in all lighting conditions, and with the 520, Garmin has gone back to tactile buttons instead of a touch screen for a simpler and more consistent interface.

The Edge 520 adds Garmin's Basemaps for basic full-color maps of the surrounding area, and it's also compatible with more detailed third-party maps so no longer will you have to try and connect the dots like with the previous free-floating routes on the Edge 500 and 510. Like always, the use of both GPS and GLONASS satellite reception minimizes interruption in tracking, even under tree cover, for accurate navigation and recording.

When connected to an ANT+ heart rate monitor and power meter, the Edge 520 also calculates VO2 max and recovery information as well as FTP tracking and wattage. Use with Garmin's Vector power meter pedal systems opens up additional metrics with Cycling Dynamics, providing left / right specific power, pedal stroke efficiency, and more. The Edge 520 is also compatible with ANT+ capable indoor trainers for riding at a set power or automatically adjusting the trainer's resistance based on a preloaded elevation profile.

Bluetooth smartphone pairing allows for text and call notifications right on the Edge 520's display, and Live Tracking makes it easy for friends and family to follow you along on your ride from their desktop. When all is said and done, Bluetooth pairing also makes it easy to automatically upload your ride straight to Garmin Connect without having to plug into a computer.

Additional connectivity options include compatibility with Shimano Di2 electronic shifting, Garmin VIRB® cameras, and Garmin Varia Smart Lights and Radar. Measures 1.9” x 2.9” x 0.8”. Claimed weight is 60 g. Battery life is rated at 15 hours. Waterproof to the IXP7 standard.


In the box:

  • Garmin 520 GPS Cycling Computer
  • Standard and Extended Mounts
  • USB Cable
  • Tether
  • Manuals

Note: Use of Strava Live Segments requires a subscription to Strava's Premium membership in order to download segments to the device.

Does everything I want in a GPS with actual buttons
by Anonymous
Cycling Enthusiast

The Edge 520 has everything I needed from a GPS at a good price. It has a water resistant build, easy to read and customize display, and compact. For me the deciding factor was having actual buttons (as opposed to a touchscreen) that allows me to use the unit in colder weather with full finger gloves.

Works but with some caveats

I'm more of a casual rider, so I don't take advantage of the advanced features of the product. Having said that, there are some things that really bug me about it.

I primarily use it to upload my data to Ride wGPS. My biggest gripe is that when I'm done riding, uploading my data to the Garmin app via my cellphone rarely works wo rebooting my phone. I tend to use the latest and greatest Android versions (Nexus, Pixel), so that might be part of the problem. But the reboot is hugely annoying.

Lately the computer has been auto-enabling collision detection, and this goes off when I come to a controlled stop. I've since disabled it, but having the sirens go off on my phone at an intersection just irks me.

Finally, the Livetrack does work to notify my family of my rides, but sometimes beginning a ride it doesn't automatically turn on for 10 minutes or so nor does it always shut down cleanly after a ride.

Great bike computer for the non-beginner
by Salmon

I use it on all rides, auto-sync with Strava, syncs with HR monitor and power meter. Pairs with phone and shows when someone is calling or when a text is received (assuming you have service and aren't lost somewhere in the mountains..). Only complaint there is that when a text comes in it covers the screen (activity fields) and doesn't go away until you manually dismiss it by clicking a button. Yeah, picky, but I wished the text message would just dismiss after 10 seconds.

A handful of features I still don't use (and probably will never use).

Battery time is fine, nothing to worry about there. Size is perfect, out-front mount puts it in the perfect position. Buttons can be a little tricky to find/press when you're wearing full-finger gloves. But if you're riding with full-finger gloves then you have other problems to worry about.

The virtual partner thingy works, but takes a little to figure out at first. It's cool though to create courses from your own PR to race against.

Happens rarely, but I've had it completely die on me mid-ride when battery level is fine. Luckily it keeps a record of the ride, and after restarting the unit I can pick up where I left off. My brother (also 520) had the same experience once so I know it's not just my machine.

4 stars only because it's great, but not perfect.

An upgrade from my Edge 500. Very Pleased
by sperry52

I purchased the Edge 520 as an upgrade to my Edge 500. I like that it syncs with my iphone Bluetooth.

I also like that it can alert me to phone calls and text messages. I also find it easier to sync my heart monitor and speedcadence sensors between my two bicycles. At the end of the day the Edge 520 will upload to Garmin Connect, Strava and Ride with GPS.

Awesome improvement over previous model (510)...
by David Link Sumerlin
Cycling Enthusiast

I ride 4-5 dayswk, 175-200 miles - my Edge 520 is nearly as important as the bike itself. All the same great features of the 510 made better, plus better graphic presentations. And love the crash alert feature, plus textphone notices. Occasionally seems off on tracking instantaneous speed, but 510 had same problem which eventually went away, apparently through updates.

Great functioning Cycling Computer..
by davidshiloh4
Cycling Enthusiast
Denver, CO

I bought this cycling computer to replace my old Garmin 500. I love the look and the capability of this computer as it does much more and has bigger numbers which are easier to read for this aging cyclist. I am still learning to use this computer as it does much more and is more complicated as the 500 was simpler and easier to manage. Hopefully over the next few weeks I will learn how to optimize it's ability and be a better cyclist.

I bought with hesitation because my Garmin 510 was doing just fine. I am so glad I purchased the Garmin 520. It's easier to use, it's interface is more user friendly, there's no delay in uploading rides, the maps are better, it's by far a better bike computer.
