Garmin today announced the next level of cycling GPS units when they unveiled the Edge Touring and Edge Touring Plus cycling computers.

The units will soon be unveiled in trade shows in Friedrichshafen, Germany and Las Vegas. The GPS navigators are designed for cyclists who are touring, commuting and mountain biking, and give users all the features of a car navigation system packed with features aimed at two-wheel adventures.

The Edge Touring and Edge Touring Plus come with preloaded maps and points of interest, and give riders both on- and off-road navigation. They also give round-trip ride options based on set distances.

“The new Edge Touring and Edge Touring Plus are perfect for those whose bikes mean adventure, freedom, exploration and a way of life,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “Easy to set up, easy to use and preloaded with bike-specific maps, they will let riders navigate safely and securely to their destinations.”

Cyclists can input the distance they want to ride, and the Edge Touring and Edge Touring Plus give three routes in to choose from in easy-to-read visual guidance. Cyclists choose between Cycling, Mountain Bike and Tour Cycling modes to find the best route for them.

The Edge Touring and Edge Touring Plus also record loads of data including distance, speed and location. Plus, it has a 2.6-inch waterproof touchscreen that works with gloves. It fits easily on a bike, and has up to 17 hours of rechargeable battery life.

The Edge Touring Plus is compatible with ANT+ heart rate monitors and comes with a barometric altimeter for elevation data.


Garmin said it expects the Edge Touring and Edge Touring Plus to ship in the fall.
