Take your riding to the next level with Garmin's Edge 500 with Premium Heart-Rate Monitor and Cadence. It straps to your stem or bars for easy viewing, and you'll never get lost again with its easy-to-use Global Positioning System (GPS) keeping you on course.

And, the Edge 500 boasts a customizable display and a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that powers the 500 for up to 18 hours per charge.

This is a great computer. Has over 40 different metrics which can be customized to show up to 8 per screen on 3 screens you can cycle through. Great to race against the "virtual rider". You can also upload turn by turn directions for routes created on some online mapping sites. I HIGHLY recommend this computer.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
