Why We Like The Garmin Edge 530 Bike Computer

We're always a little amazed when Garmin launches a new computer. The amount of information that's available at our fingertips during a ride and afterward to analyze is simply astounding. Nowadays, route planning and mapping, ability to pair with various sensors, and keeping connected with groups of riders as well and friends and family at home are par for the course. These features let us find rides in places we've never been before, allows us to train more effectively, and potentially ride safer. So if you are in the market for a new computer and want the most up to the date features, have a look at the Edge 530 Bike Computer.

This Edge 530 is pre-loaded with the Garmin Cycle Map with popularity routing. Using its Garmin Connect database, Garmin finds well-ridden routes in your current location and even recommends the direction that's most popular. Additionally, it provides off-course recalculation assistance to quickly get you back to the start if needed.

Returning features include group messaging and tracking letting you communicate with the pack without having to pull out the phone from your back pocket. So if the group takes a wrong turn or someone has a mechanical, if you're paired with GroupTrack, it's easy to regroup. It also receives assistance and compatibility with Varia rearview radar and lights (sold separately) so you can see and be seen, while a new bike alarm rounds out the list of cycling safety features. The 530 is compatible with ANT+ and Bluetooth sensors including speed, cadence, power, heart rate monitors, and others, providing real-time metrics that you can view on the ride and analyze later. By paring with compatible sensors, the 530 provides insights on your VO2 max, advises recovery time, training balance, heat and altitude acclimation, nutrition, hydration, and more.

Once connected to Garmin's Connect IQ store which you can do over Wi-Fi, you can easily customize the Edge 530 with free apps, widgets, and data fields. For instance, a weather app can keep you aware of changing conditions, while training apps let you, and your coach, know if you are doing the workouts correctly. Every data field is easily customizable letting you put important information exactly where you want on the easy to read screen.

Water resistance gets an IPX7 rating which is plenty of protection for rainy rides and 'cross conditions. One area that really impressed us was its 20-hour claimed battery life and the ability to work with the Garmin Charge power pack for up to 40 hours of additional battery life, plenty of juice for ultra epic races. Included with the computer is a flush out-front mount, standard mount, USB cable, and manual.

Nice but drops blue tooth connection to phone alo

Love my 530 especially the crash detect and phone an emergancy contact. But every 3rd ride or so it fails to connect to my phone. The only fix I have found is to delete the blue tooth connections on my phone, forget the phone on the 530, remove the 530 from connect app and add it all back. This is a total pain to do as you are heading off on a ride and notice it didn’t connect.

Great Useful, if the touch screen is ready.

I bought this last week, and have fun with this toy. However, if touch screen is ready, this must be more useful to use it.

Poorly constructed - not buying Garmin again

18 month old Garmin 530, screen bubbles with a bit of rain then falls off and put the unit in alarm. And it is supposed to be IPX7. Was a great unit but not if it can't even last 18 months with only a 12 month warranty. Wahoo next!

For bikepacking and day tours

I used it for about 18 Months. It is a great gadget. It greatest helps is on climbs, when I was using a course it keeps me on track about the ascension. Having 10 field in real time is also great. BUT... while on bikepacking countest, or just on tours the Edge 530 turns off and than back on again. No too often but enough to give one a short anxiety kick when in middle of nowhere... a forrest in the middle of Transylvania, where I live...

Have 2 keep re-registering

Garmin not so good. My 530 somehow, once again, needed to be re-synched and re-registered. Sucks. Lost many ride histories. I’m really not pleased, nor would I recommend, Garmin units for cycling.

Garmin Firmware/Software sucks

I was trying to install a course map for STP onto my Garmin 530. Garmin Connect and Garmin Express had both been talking to my 530 for months, but couldn't find it when I tried to send the STP course. I had to completely remove the 530 and re-instal it to complete the operation. This is the kind of issue that I run into any time that I try to do something involving Garmin Firmware or Software.

Possible Improvements...

Overall, I think two things need improvement and this can be done via the upgrades on the app itself (or a software upgrade)... 1. The font currently is too thick - reducing effective visibility. So, a font change option or should switch over to maybe something like Ariel Narrow. 2. The data screens config options should be connected to a grid on the phone - this way, the phone's touch screen will ease the rider to do the changes in secs, and the same would reflect on the device on the go... it just needs a simple code, but will take the interface to the next-gen. 3. QR code on the device screen can be used to connect the setup app on the phone or the Wi-Fi settings. Simple and snappy. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Great hardware, terrible software

Computer has been a bit of a disappointment. It is abnormally difficult to connect to bluetooth. Almost every time I get a 'cannot connect to garmin servers' message when syncing data. When I do get it to connect to bluetooth when I try to sync from garmin connect it is never successful- always receive a 'sync failed, device busy' error message. Every time I try to upload a ride from the device manually there is always an 'upload failed' error message. The only way it will actually sync is to plug the device in manually to my computer. For the price of this device, it works very poorly! The endless troubleshooting forums for this device and independent developer blogs describing how to use the hardware without actually using their software reveals how common these issues are. Per garmin's troubleshooting instructions I have had to factory reset the device - each time, a time consuming nightmare to connect to my phone.
