Garmin Edge Touring
Garmin Edge Touring is a new bike computer for Garmin for the 99% of the cycling population that are not racers.
Edge Touring works like a GPS navigator you would use in your car with turn-by-turn directions with full color maps and it is touch screen, just like Garmin's high-end Edge 810 bike computer.
Edge Touring will guide you turn by turn, no need for pocket maps. Simply enter your starting point and destination and your off or you can get rides others have completed on Garmin Connect. It's the ultimate cycle touring system.
Garmin Edge Touring offers up to 15 hours of battery life so it will last for an all-day tour running in GPS maps mode. Can't do that with your iPhone.
<.b>Find Where You Are Going Without Pulling Over For Directions
Bike-specific maps pre-loaded in Edge Touring make it easy to get from place to place. Simply search for points of interest and Edge Touring will give you turn-by-turn directions to your destination.
Good for Mountain Biking, Too!
You can choose between cycling, tour cycling and mountain biking modes to calculate the most appropriate route for the type of cycling you do, taking you on paved roads, unpaved roads, or on paths and trails. You can even pre-load Rails-To-Trails routes and more.
Have Route Choices and See Attractions On The Way
With round trip routing, you can tell Edge Touring how far you’d like to ride and then choose from up to 3 ride options that will bring you back to where you started. The device makes it easy to plan rest stops, find attractions along the way and more.
A Bike Computer For The Other 99%
Edge Touring can even be mounted on the Edge out front bike mount, which we highly recommend because it puts the bike computer out in front of your handlebars and keeps your eyes on the road.
Share The Ride
You can even share your rides with others on Garmin Connect, its like a social community for fellow touring cyclists.
