pocket gps world review + gb580p incredible price
« on: April 25, 2012, 07:50:16 pm »

I thought I should share...

Here is a review where the author gave 9/10 for gb580. Not much exhaustive but you get the idea.

http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/globalsat-gps-bike-computer-gb580.php



By the way if you look on amazon, there is one guy selling gb580p for an incredible sale out price of 122$ free shipping into US. Should not last long so do it fast while you can   :)

PS
disclaimer:
I am not related in anyway to this seller which is not an official usglobalsat retailer. So do your own research on him before buying.

Thanks canadien for posting up that informative review!  :)

Hope this would bring customers to see how good the GB-580's performance is.

It does, but unfortunately many customers doesnīt know where they can buy the Globalsat-products in Europe.
Im sure if GS would have a better distribution-network and make a little advertising in magzines they would become a popular player.

Perhaps, they could visit our website and take a look at our authorized resellers in Europe that we have here: http://www.usglobalsat.com/s-5-find-a-store.aspx

However, I will go ahead and share with our sales department about having a better distribution network in Europe.

Thanks.

I loved the review but it has left me wondering if I can use this device for running too. So can I?

Hi Baccilus,

GS has delivered the first GB-580īs with a wrist-strap, but I think, now it isnīt in the package anymore. Caron, do you know anything about this?

Happy weekend

Hello Baccilus,

Welcome to the forum! You can use it for running, but, keep in mind that the GB-580P Bike Computer is optimized for biking. If you want a specific device meant for running, please take a look at the GH-625XT (http://www.usglobalsat.com/p-690-gh-625xt-gs-sport-watch.aspx).

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hello Bernd,

Regarding this delivery, I don't exactly remember if the first batch was sold to a specific customer or included for an ODM project.

Here in USGlobalSat, the wriststrap is not included in the GB-580P and GB-580F package since it's not one of our standard items. Thanks.

Do you have anything for someone who runs and bikes? If not I would settle for the GB-580. Will the GB 580 record my runs as runs or rides?

I just ordered the GB 580p from dx.com. I wonder if you have any users in India or will I be the first. Anyways, if this turns out as good as I am expecting it to be I promise you there will be a lot more people who will be keen on buying this here. However the only dealer in India is selling it for a lot higher price than I bought it for. So I was forced to buy it online. I will probably get the shipment in the next 4-5 weeks.

Link to GB-580P in the shop:
http://dx.com/p/genuine-gssport-gb-580p-gps-bike-cycling-computer-speedometer-black-orange-121036?item=1
166,90 USD & free shipping to Germany! Great price, but remember maybe you also have to pay duty and tax. But the price is hot also.

Best regards

I ordered the GB 580P from here:
http://dx.com/p/genuine-gssport-gb-580p-gps-bike-cycling-computer-speedometer-black-orange-121036?item=1

The item description clearly mentions that this has a Heart Rate Monitor. It is even shown in the item pictures. But I remember reading somewhere that the GB 580P doesn't have a Heart rate Monitor transmitter. So should I be worried about getting a Bike computer without an HRM?

Don't worry. All sensors (speed, cadense and HRM belt) are included in GP-580P release.

Hello baccilus,

Just for your reference, if you are going to purchase directly from us or from one of our authorized resellers, you will have two options: GB-580P and GB-580F. To see the difference between these two units, please refer to this forum posting: http://www.usglobalsat.com/forum/index.php?topic=3983.msg13025#msg13025

If you're going to purchase the GB-580P from a non-authorized reseller, I believe, the HRM is included in the package. But, please confirm with them just to make sure. Thanks.
