Leave the tedious leg-work of planning routes to Garmin's Edge Touring Plus so you can focus on the enjoyable leg-work of riding. Preloaded with Garmin's Cycle Map, it's packed with millions of roads, trails, points of interest, and provides turn-by-turn directions on a large, easy-to-see and use touch screen. Whether you have a destination in mind or just a distance, the Edge Touring gives you three options—Cycling, Tour Cycling, or Mountain Biking—that take the most bike-friendly round trip or A to B route. ANT+ technology lets you pair the Edge Touring Plus with a compatible heart rate monitor (sold separately). Plan your route, keep track of your ride data, log into Garmin Connect back at home, and upload to share and analyze your effort. You can even find and download maps that others have made, or you can create and share your own.
This computer tracks your speed, altitude, temperature, direction so you can obsess over your ride when you get home. It chooses routes that are logically shorter, but sometimes on highways I would prefer avoiding. I've found planning the route ahead of time is better than relying on the route this device suggests. Otherwise, it certainly made navigation worry-free so I could really enjoy the scenery. I recommend it.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
