Your cycling and your smartphone — a powerful combination

Real-time data transfer and updates

The Edge 510 connects to your iOS® or Android™ smartphone via Bluetooth® to transfer ride data from the computer to your smartphone. When the ride is done, you can share all the details with your circle of friends immediately. And if you're out on a long ride or race, your friends and family can follow your progress on Garmin Connect with real-time map updates. You can quickly scope out threatening weather conditions on the Edge 510's water-resistant screen, while leaving your smartphone safe and dry in your pocket or jacket. And you can operate the Edge 510 touchscreen with gloved fingers and in wet conditions, too

A great cycling computer at its heart

The Edge 510 offers the high-performance features you need for serious training. Its high-sensitivity GPS receiver records speed, distance, time, plus ascent and descent, while a built-in barometric altimeter yields precise elevation measurements. You can customize the Edge 510's screen to display the info that's important to you when you ride, so you'll always have the metrics you need right in front of you. You can compare successive rides over the same route with the Courses feature, and compete against previous performances. The screen also displays Auto Pause, Auto Lap and temperature readings.

The Edge 510 works with all ANT+-enabled power meters (not included) so you can track your power output in watts when you ride — one of the most effective training methods available. And when it's paired with a heart rate monitor (not included), the Edge 510 tracks your heart rate, letting you train in the proper heart-rate zone to optimize your workout.

Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The Garmin Edge 510 is a compact, GPS-enabled advanced bicycle computer with connected features, such as live tracking, social media sharing, weather, and the ability to send and receive courses. You can add a heart rate monitor, speed/cadence sensor, or a power meter to fine tune your workout. The Edge 510 is waterproof (IPX7 rated), and comes with two handlebar mounts so you can mount it on multiple bikes.

Touchscreen Display: The Edge 510 has a 2.2" backlit color touchscreen LCD (1.4"W x 1.7"H), with a display resolution of 176 x 220 pixels. You can maneuver through the menus and make selections directly on the touchscreen display. The display will show your elapsed time, speed, distance, time of day, and calories burned (if applicable).

GPS: The Edge 510 has a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix satellite prediction to calculate your position faster. When you turn on the unit outdoors, it finds satellites quickly, so you can start your ride quicker. The time of day and the date are automatically set by the GPS receiver. If training indoors, you can turn off the GPS receiver to save battery power.

GLONASS: In addition to the GPS (Global Positioning System), the Edge 510 is compatible with GLONASS (GLObal NAvigation Satellite System), operated by Russia. This gives the device increased performance and accuracy in challenging environments, and faster position acquisition. By default, the unit is set to GPS + GLONASS. For increased battery life, you can select GPS Only.

Smartphone Compatible: You can wirelessly link your device to a smartphone (Android or iOS) using the Garmin Connect Mobile app. At the end of your ride, you can transfer the ride data directly to your phone via Bluetooth. Using the app, you can analyze the details of your ride, or share it with others. You can also search out courses and workouts stored at Garmin Connect, download them to your smartphone, and send them to your Edge 510 wirelessly. Real-time weather updates and alerts can be sent from your smartphone to your device.

Live Tracking: Another connected feature of the Edge 510, Live Tracking, allows your friends and family to follow your races and training activities in real time. You can invite your followers via email or social media to view your live data on the Garmin Connect tracking page. Once they see your invitation, they can click to follow your progress on a map and see your stats.

Controls: Most of the controls are located on the touchscreen. On the Home screen, you can access your bike profile, change your activity profile, manage your history, courses, and workouts, and start a new ride. During your ride, you can use the front panel buttons to start/stop the timer and mark a new lap without having to look at the screen. The power and backlight button is located on the side.

Waterproof: The Edge 510 is waterproof to IEC Standard 60529 IPX7. It can withstand immersion in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. The casing is totally sealed, including the front-mounted controls, and the USB port has a water-resistant cover to prevent corrosion.

ANT+: ANT+ is a wireless technology that allows certain accessories to communicate with the Edge 510. ANT+ sensors generally work within 10 feet of the unit. In addition, an increasing number of health clubs and fitness centers have ANT+ compatible equipment in their facilities, so you can use the same accessories separate from your device. Compatible Garmin ANT+ accessories include:

  • Heart Rate Monitor: When the Edge 510 is paired with the optional Premium Heart Rate Monitor, the unit tracks your heart beats per minute and calculates your calorie consumption as you train. You can train in a certain heart rate zone to improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to past performances.
  • Speed/Cadence Sensor: The GSC 10 Speed/Cadence Sensor measures your speed and pedaling strokes per minute. The Edge 510 has a Non-Zero Averaging option to let you include or exclude the zero values (when you're not pedaling) when calculating your power ratings.

Auto Pause: The built-in timer will pause automatically when it detects you're not moving. The timer will restart when you resume your ride.

Auto Lap: The Auto Lap feature lets you automatically mark the lap at a specific position. This helps you compare your performance over different parts of a ride (i.e. a long climb or training sprints). You can also use Auto Lap to mark laps at a specific distance.

Data Storage: The Edge 510's built-in memory (approximately 50 MB) stores at least 180 hours of ride data. The unit not only has an odometer to keep track of your mileage, but includes data on your last ride, longest ride, fastest ride, and all rides. Ride data can be sent to your smartphone via Bluetooth using the Garmin Connect app.

Note: The unit does not include a basemap, nor does it have the ability to add maps.

User Profile: The Edge 510 allows you to enter data about yourself to create a User Profile. This data (gender, birth year, weight, and height) is used to calculate accurate ride data.

Bike Profile: In addition to User Profiles, the Edge 510 allows you to customize ten bike profiles. In order to accurately calculate the ride data, the bike weight, odometer value, crank length, and wheel size are used.

Garmin Connect: Free web-based Garmin Connect software lets you store your workout data for comprehensive analysis. Garmin Connect is used by cyclists worldwide, and presents your data in an easily understood manner, with maps, reports, and suggested activities. You can create fitness goals and send them to your device. As you complete activities toward your goals, they are tracked on both the device and on Garmin Connect. In addition, the Garmin Training Center software lets you track and analyze your fitness activities and create workouts to send to your device, without requiring Internet access after the initial download.

Compatibility: The Edge 510 can be used as a USB mass storage device. It can be used with most recent Windows and Mac operating systems. It is not compatible with Windows 95, 98, Me, or NT. It is also not compatible with MAC OS 10.3 and earlier.

Courses: The Edge 510 can save your ride data as you train. From that saved data, you can use Garmin Connect software to create courses that you can follow in the future. Each time you follow the course, the unit will compare your time to previous rides, or to other riders, and let you set performance goals. As you ride along the course, the display will indicate distance and time to upcoming maneuvers.

Virtual Partner: During your workout, you can use the Virtual Partner to help you meet your goals. The Virtual Partner rides along with you and provides incentive for you to keep up or stay ahead. If necessary, you can adjust the speed of the Virtual Partner during the ride.

USB Port: A Mini-B USB port is provided on the back of the unit for charging and connecting to your computer. A water-resistant cap keeps moisture out. The Edge 510 is compatible with USB 2.0 Full Speed.

Power Requirements: The unit is powered by a built-in Lithium-Ion battery. It charges via the included USB cable when connected to your computer or the included AC adapter. The battery charge level is expressed as a percentage on the display. When using GPS + GLONASS, the Edge 510 will provide approximately 15 hours of battery life. Using GPS only extends the battery life to 20 hours. Using GPS + GLONASS with 100% backlight, the expected battery life drops to 6 hours. Extremely cold temperatures will also reduce battery life.

Mounting: The Edge 510 can be mounted to your bicycle's handlebars or stem. Two sizes of O-rings are included for best fit. Two complete mounts are included to allow you to use the unit on multiple bikes. The optional Out-Front Bike Mount lets you put the device in front of the handlebars for easier, heads-up positioning and increased safety.
