So basically a Garmin 510, with 2x the battery life at 1/2 the price. Very interesting...as charging my Garmin in the middle of a long 12+ hour ride can be a nuisance. Reviews would be good...the software could either make it a fantastic head unit or an epic fail.

The only thing that kept me for getting the previous version was the lack of live tracking. With that feature added I can't see anything with the exception of awful reviews preventing me for getting this version.

That's some serious 1980's Nintendo graphics right there....
Hey now, in Lezyne's defense...they don't seem to have that puke-worthy greenish-yellow Brazil-Olympic-Swimming-Pool-Water color to the screens....

Looks like it needs to be paired with a phone to do turn by turn navigation - that's a non starter for me. Wouldn't want to run down my phone battery on a super long ride to get the turn by turn - plugging a back up battery into my 510 is easy to do.

No wonder the price is so low.

Might as well just use your phone then.

I figure one device is enough for a bike ride so I just use my phone.

I certainly like the idea of this, however I don't enjoy having my phone on my stem nor do i like having to keep it on all of the time in order to see my stats. Tried it, but can't do it.

I just put it in my jersey pocket and turn off the main screen. Generally about 8% to 12% of the battery for a usual 20 to 30 mile ride. I am just an average cyclist and my goals are to make 100mi a week and to enjoy the process. I do look at Strava after I upload.
