Dash L50 GPS Bike Computer
When it comes to setting goals on the bike, more often than not, each of our individual goals differ hugely from one cyclist to another. There are those of us who aim to earn that climber's jersey, or who covet the sprint, and some of us prefer to say to hell with the pace, lets ride as far as we can. Stages Dash L50 Bike Computer offers you the support you need so you can hit those goals, with as much, or as little data as you need to get there. It works similarly to the Dash M50, and packs in all of the same features, like an auto-dimming backlit screen that senses dark and bright days and adjusts accordingly, as well as OSM-powered maps that show you far beyond the roads, mapping out lakes, rivers, and even highways, plus color-coded routes to show you the safest rides. The only place you'll find major differences between the M50 and L50 is in the screen itself, with the L50 measuring in quite a bit larger to give you an easier view of data when you're hammering on the pedals.
Like the M50, the Dash L50 pairs up with a number of cycling meters via ANT+ and Bluetooth, so you can display your cadence, speed, and power output while you ride. The Dash L50 lets you upload courses to the computer via .GPX, .FIT, or .TCX files and hit the road. This will allow you to plan your ride ahead, and get crisp, clear directions on screen while you ride, as well as by notification if you'd like audio guiding you as well. Dash is compatible with routes from RidewithGPS, MapMyRide, Strava and others, and you can also build your own routes with Stage's own free LINK website route builder, which ads in elevation profiles for your route, so you can see where you are, and know just how much climbing lies ahead. If data is what matters to you most, pair the Dash with additional speed, cadence, and heart rate monitors to improve your training, so you can optimize your time on the bike, and set the Dash to training mode for live view of where your heart rate lies.
While the Dash comes preloaded with essential data screens based on feedback during design process, you can easily build custom profiles and screens to show you the exact metrics you want to see while you ride. The display can be viewed in either landscape or portrait mode on the journey, and switched to a black background Night Mode for low-light conditions in which a bright white light can distract you from the road ahead.

Great 520 Replacement
- I've put it through the wringer
Bought the Dash to replace my Garmin 520 as my adventure computer, mostly drawn in by the battery life. The recent firmware updates make the Dash battery life awesome, I run mine at 20% brightness and after a 7 hr ride can have around 65% or so battery life left. I really like the ability to fine tune screens and to customize them to what you want. I love the space available in the unit and the fact it's pre-loaded with USA Maps. Only bummer is the cost of the mounts; and sometimes my heart rate seems to not average correctly but could be my 3-4 year old HR strap.

Great alternative to Wahoo Bolt
- I've put it through the wringer
I went from a Gramin 1000 to a Wahoo Bolt and enjoyed the Bolt alot. However, the screen is too small and hard to read and I needed something that I could see better. Setup on the website and app takes a little getting used to, but once you figure it out, it's incredibly powerful. The Stages platform is great, the course creation tool works well, and the workout portion of the app / dash are better than anything out there. Don't be afraid to make the switch to Stages. Worked out well for me!

I was hoping for a garmin alternative
this thing is awful. It would not even recognize the serial number when i tried to register it. I made all the changes in the app but they never carried over to the unit. It is so clunky in comparison to a garmin it doesn't even feel like there are any internal parts. To get to each screen it reminds me of the old Timex watches. What an absolute terrible product .
