    My Life with a Vado 5.0; I Want Out

    TL;DR version: Bought with great hope, currently disgusted. Mechanically unreliable and promised software features are unavailable. After researching for several weeks, I decided that a Specialized Turbo Vado 5.0 is what I wanted for my daily commute (~33 miles round trip). The TFT display's...
