    This is my second Garmin 520 cycle computer. I was happy with my old unit, but after seeing the higher resolution of the screen, much better battery life. The biggest difference was the navigation. It’s nice to see it in color and I could actually complete 100 mile ride without the battery dying. Glad I upgraded to the 520 Edge plus.
