I bought the Edge 530 before touring the Great Allegheny Passage and C&O Tow Path from Pittsburgh to Washington D.C. I've been cycling for over ten years and this was my first big bike computer splurge. The 530 performed admirably, only losing GPS signal in tunnels or under the heaviest of tree canopies. It has functionality and data gathering options galore! I loved the onscreen navigation screen and the ability to segment our ride with uploaded way points on the trail. You can customize data fields to your hearts content and while I did find the hardware buttons a little tough to push at first, I later came to appreciate this made accidental inputs very difficult. Best of all was the battery life. I charged the device one, set the screen to fall asleep after 30 seconds and didn't have to charge it again until the end of our trip. Although pricey I think the 530 is definitely worth it.
