Great device for great price – Genuine Gssport GB-580P GPS Bike Cycling Computer Speedometer - Black + Orange Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
I agree with the previous reviewers that the price value is unbeatable. All sensors you need are there (GPS,cadence, speed and HR). The device is sturdy and waterproof. Sensors are precise. Easy to operate. Also active users forum and support from GSsport.
Cons:
GPS fixing sometimes takes a while. The delay from sensors to device is still a bit high (e.g. if you're slowing to standstill the device shows the slowdown with a delay). Hope they fix this with new firmware. This delay is not visible in the output files. The trackback function is not very precise in urban like environments. You easily miss your turn. If you're riding in environments with less turns, it's no problem.
Other:
Use it with Sporttracks and tcx plugin for monitoring. I also use it with Strava. For GPS routing I still use my android phone and OSMand app on a bike handle bar.
Bottomline:
For this price you can't go wrong as far as GPS, HR,cadence and speed tracking on a bike. Just buy it you won't be disappointed. Just don't expect a Garmin 850 touchscreen like device.
