About a month ago my old 820 stopped working so I decided to try out a Wahoo Element. Bad decision. So many features I didn't like and so many features not available. So, I have returned and am very happy. I've used Garmin for many years and now I know why...it's the best.

Not great
Auto pause doesn't work great. I even changed it from "stopped" to less than .1 mph and it still pauses while the bike is rolling at 1-4 Mph so I had to turn the feature off completely. Garmin/s auto share beacon integration doesn't work well. I found lots of users on Garmin forums for months with same issue and firmware after firmware don't fix it which is stupid in this day and age. This is essentially an IoT device and needs to work all the time other wise we should go back to our phones as trackers. Garmin will need to step up their software/firmware game or someone is going to fix their issues by releasing a better product. I'm not going to return cause I'm hoping Garmin wants to make these products work better and more stable and with more cloud enabled functioning features. Honestly it was a gift otherwise if it was my cash then I might return it and go back to that other main competitor who's name I won't mention here

Packed with lots of features!

Just have to give kudos to the Garmin Edge 530 after 60 days of usage. This unit is awesome especially with the features that's packed in it. What I really like is the extra apps that you can download through Garmin that you can add to the display. I've downloaded a weather app which tells me in real time the current weather a well as wind speed and the direction it's coming from. This helps me determine the direction and distance of my ride for the day. Keep up the good work Garmin!

Awesome

The customizable screens are amazing. So much infoon one screen, without pushing a button. Great! Love the pop up Hill climb screen.

My only issue was the lack of info to get it set up to wirelessly get routes from ride with gps. I feel I almost needed an it degree to figure this out. But all works seamlessly now!

Works well much of the time but could be improved

I've been using the 530 on a 4 1/2 month bike trip through South America. We still have over a month to go. For each day we have a GPX file that I load and follow the route. The maps work really well - I love how you can just extract whatever maps you need from OpenStreetMaps and put onto the 530. We have 109 riding days on this trip.

Issues I've found:

1) The Navigation features sometimes freeze and stop working for a while. Typically after riding 100km or so, then it recovers after maybe 5-15km more. Doesn't happen every day. It happened out in the middle of the Salar de Uyuni so definitely not a problem with satellite reception! It is imperative to have a backup device because of this failure. OsmAnd phone app with tracks loaded works great, or Maps.me.

2) It doesn't understand switchbacks. It keeps calling them U-turns which is confusing. Come on that should not be so hard to fix.

3) It should be easier to load routes without a computer. Most people on this trip have only a phone and it is so clunky that they all just come to me so I can use my laptop to load maps or routes for them. You have to improve this process. Most people REALLY don't have a computer on trips any more. Computers must be supported and are ok for home, but it HAS to work away from home too.

Ending on a positive note: Battery life is exceptional! Best of any device like this I've used or heard of. The other day I did a 160km stage and my battery was at 82% after. Killed it!

Not user friendly

Very complicated with no user instructions on how to operate and download rides. I have spent 2 days trying to get the device set up and how to download routes. It is way too complicated. I wanted to use the heart rate monitor and that wouldn't connect to Garmin.
