Great value

Garmin 520, great value compared to the 1000, sold my 1000 and replaced with the 520, with £120 for me to spend towards some new wheels, smaller in size and great value.

Simply fantastic

This is an upgrade from a edge 500. I loved my 500 especially the size. The data fields are crisp to read in all light levels and even with 8 field (which you don't need at once) the text is still large enough. I am also pleasantly surprised and impressed by the navigation which is easy to read. Simply fantastic.

Detailed product description

Small and compact

The Garmin Edge 520 has an aerodynamic design and features a high quality 2.3-inch high-resolution colour screen. The screen is easy to read so you can properly monitor your performance during your ride in every condition. In addition, the Edge 520 is easy to operate using the buttons on the sides.

Garmin Open Street Maps

Besides Garmin basic world maps, it's also possible to install maps of a third party (OSM). This way, a loaded route or GPX file is shown clearly on the map, which makes it a whole lot easier to follow a route. However, it is not possible to enter an address on the Edge 520 and navigate to it like you can with the Edge 1000.

Connect to a power meter, Varia bike radar, or Varia Vision glasses

The Edge 520 is compatible with ANT+ sensors, such as the new Varia bike radar and bicycle lights, sensors to measure speed, cadence and heart rate, Edge and VIRB remote controls, and compatible scales. The unit can also be integrated with the Shimano Di2 electronic systems to display your current gear. The Edge 520 is also compatible with ANT+ power meters.
