Garmin Edge 500 Cycling Computer

Sharpen your cycling performance with Garmin Edge 500 Cycling Computer, a lightweight GPS-based cycling computer for performance-driven cyclists. Loaded with data, Edge 500 tracks your distance, speed, location and elevation with high sensitivity GPS. Add an ANT+(TM) compatible heart rate monitor, speed/cadence sensor or compatible power meter for a finely-tuned analysis of your ride.
Jumpstart Your Training – The Edge 500 attaches easily to the stem or handlebars of your bike with its low-profile bike mount. The Edge attaches easily to the mount with a simple quarter-turn. When you’re ready to ride, just power on your Edge, acquire GPS satellites and go. Edge 500 features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with Hot
Fix(R) satellite prediction to calculate your position faster.
Get the Data You Need – During your ride, Edge 500 measures your speed, distance, time, calories burned, altitude, climb and descent, and records this data for your review. For extra-precise climb and descent data, Edge 500 also incorporates a barometric altimeter to pinpoint changes in elevation. All Edge 500 versions work with third-party ANT+-enabled power meters to display your power output in watts as you ride. This valuable data shows you how hard you’re working, regardless of conditions affecting your ride, so you can train smarter. Other helpful training characteristics include a Courses feature, which helps you compare successive rides over the same route, as well as Auto Pause, Auto Lap and temperature readings. Edge also alerts you if you’re moving, but the timer is not running.
Track Your Heart Rate – When paired with a Garmin heart rate monitor, Edge 500 tracks heart beats per minute and uses your heart rate for advanced calorie computation, so you know how many calories you’re burning. Train in a certain heart-rate zone to improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to past performance over the same ride.

    Power Cycling Electronics? I know it fixes most problem I have with electronics but why does it work?

    Thanks for your help

      The electronic components have many circuits inside, and when one or more change voltage levels when they aren’t supposed to, then it doesn’t work properly and you get “hung up”.

      When you turn off the power, all of the electricity in the circuits bleeds away to zero, so that when you turn it on again, all the circuits are starting off fresh.

      You should wait a few seconds between turning your electronics off and turning them back on to allow the voltages to bleed off completely.

      The main reasons why power cycling is done is to have an electronic device reinitialize its configuration or recover from an unresponsive state, such as “Crash” or “Hanging”.

      Most modern electronic devices have a program ROM chip or BIOS, with their proprietary programming. Over the course of normal operation, certain unforeseen events such as power surge and electrical noise can cause electronic devices to malfunction, and the simplest way to reinitialize the program is to cycle the device’s power.

      I hope my answer explains your question.

    Electronics – Computers? A memory chip is labeled as 2114-20. What does the 20 indicate?

    View Comment
    1. Reply

      TRC read cycle time is 200 clock cycles minimum

      max access time = 200 nSec

      http://www.physics.ucdavis.edu/Classes/Physics116/Lab16_02all_rev.pdf

      if you notice the other chips 2114-3 are tRC 300 and max access time of 300=nSec

      So I am going to say that the 20 designates the access time of the memory chip.

      =)

    Cycling A 76L Tank? According to some conversion website, 76.2 Litres is 20.13 US Gallons or 16.76 UK Gallons. (Why do you have different Gallons, omg you imperial measurement system people are crazy :P).

    Anyway, I’m planning to cycle the tank for about 4 weeks then add fish slowly at about 2 fish/week until it’s stocked. I’ve currently got the cover open – is this necessary? I heard it helps in the evaporation of chlorine from the water, although I have already treated the water with a de chlorinating chemical. Also, do you need a surge protector for aquarium electronics, or will a normal power board suffice?

      Yeah your cycling procedure sounds perfect ?

      If you’ve already added dechlorinator to the water, leaving the cover off isn’t necessary, but if it’s more convienient for you for some reason it won’t hurt.

      And with the surge protector – if have one lying around or want to invest in one it certainly won’t hurt – it’ll prevent any damage. Saying that, where I live I have surge protected all my electronics and in 18 years nothing has happened. It can’t hurt, so I’d go for it ?

      Good luck!
