my edge 500 (in use since july 2010) has become very slow and wont recognize new activities on the garmin connect site for the last month

It works fine when communicating with training center.
any thoughts? (win 7 64 OS)

GTC doesn't use the Communicator plugin but GC does. The culprit is the Communicator plugin which always reads and writes all data to the device on every operation. When your device gets loaded with history/workouts/courses/etc., it becomes incredibly slow.

So, empty your old activities and workouts on the device regularly or use the file import mode.

Agreed. I learned the hard way a couple years ago that keeping minimal history on my 705 avoids many performance and upload issues. Now I usually never have more than 5-7 rides and also keep routes and courses to a minimum too; store them on the computer and transfer to the GPS when needed.
