    Does the Garmin Edge 510 touchscreen scroll

    On their webpage they show a rider scrolling the screen like an iphone, but mine doesn't seem to do that. Is that an 810 feature?

    Exactly what do you mean? using the swipe to switch screens? It will do that. It does NOT work like an iphone, though, because of the difference in touchscreen tech. Most Garmins use a resistive touchscreen (except for the newest Oregons and I think the Monterra), which is less sensitive than an iphone (or other smartphone) that uses a capacitive touchscreen. It will swipe if you get it just right, but it's difficult to reliably get the motion correct. My Oregon 450 uses the same touchscreen tech. It's better to just use the arrow buttons for that function instead, or use one of the edge 510's physical buttons.
