Garmin Edge Touring Plus
Garmin Edge Touring Plus offers turn-by-turn directions with full color maps and touch screen navigation. Edge Touring Plus adds heart rate and heart rate based calorie consumtion to the regular Edge Touring when you purchase an optional heart rate strap.
UP TO 200 NAVIGATION WAY POINTS
With the Garmin Edge Plus you can use up to 200 navigation way points and be navigated turn-by-turn with full color maps. You can set historic places or other sight seeing fascinations as points of interest and navigate right to them.
SEARCH FOR RIDES COMPLETED BY OTHERS
You can go to Garmin Connector Garmin Adventure software's and search for rides that have been done by others to upload to your Edge Touring Plus.
ADD OTHER MAPS
Edge Touring Plus also has the ability to add other Garmin maps that are country specific because it has a micro-SD card data port. This means you can add Garmin Topo maps for mountain biking or any other of a number of Garmin's country specific mapping cards.
GOOD ON THE ROAD OR IN THE MOUNTAINS
Garmin Edge Touring Plus works equally well on the road or in the mountains thanks to Garmin's highly evolved maps data base. 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.
GET ALL YOUR METRIC DATA
Get speed, distance, time, elevation and even heart rate with an optional Garmin premium soft strap 3. Navigation maps and complete data metric screens make this the ideal setup for touring cyclists.
FINALLY A TOOL FOR THE OTHER 99% THAT DON'T RACE
We find it very refreshing to see that Garmin is now building a real tool for the 99% of the cycling population who are not racers and either train for their own purposes or use a bike for touring transportation.
