The Touring GPS Bike Computer with Bike Safety Features: Garmin Edge Explorer
With the Edge Explore, you can discover new routes and stay connected on your rides. This user-friendly GPS bike computer comes with a preloaded bike map that displays popular cycling routes. It supports a range of online features, allowing you to stay in touch with fellow cyclists, as well as family and friends back home. The Edge Explore is the perfect companion for tours and adventures.
Ready for the Ride
With the Edge Explore, you won't waste any time. Setting up the bike computer is easy, and you can use it for your rides right after unboxing. With essential navigation prompts at a glance, you won't miss out on the breathtaking views. That's why the Edge Explore is equipped with a 3-inch display that's bright and easily readable – whether in sunlight, on cloudy days, or even in the rain. The touchscreen is quick and efficient to operate, with or without gloves.
Embrace the Adventure
With the Edge Explore, you can get lost in your adventure without losing your way. The bike map is already preloaded and guides you to almost any destination – from scenic roads to restaurants and bike shops. The routes are created using Trendline Popularity Routing, which incorporates billions of kilometers of cycling data. This way, you can navigate like a local on routes and paths that are actually frequented by cyclists. On the go, the Edge Explore provides turn-by-turn directions. If you stray from the route, it's not a problem either, as the device will guide you back on track or back to the starting point if you deviate from the route or want to head home earlier.
Stay Connected on the Go
Leave your phone in your pocket and simply enjoy the tour, as the Edge Explore provides all the necessary smart connections. With LiveTrack, friends and family can track your real-time position, and with GroupTrack, you can keep an eye on up to 50 of your fellow riders. If your fellow riders are a bit faster or slower, you can use rider-to-rider messages (with a compatible smartphone) to send predefined messages from your Edge bike computer to the other person's device. Let your friends know if you'll catch up with them in a few minutes or if they should go ahead without you. If you have a flat tire or need assistance, you can send a message to your fellow riders whose devices are linked through GroupTrack, so they can locate you.
The Edge Explore bike computer can be easily customized with free apps, widgets, and data fields from the Connect IQ Store. Thanks to apps like AccuWeather MinuteCast, you'll know when the rain is going to stop, allowing you to start your tour.
