Garmin Edge Touring is the best bike touring computer ever made according to the Heart rate Watch Company.
"We've tested bike computer products for years and years but have never found anything that has this level of features all set up around bike touring and navigation," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company.
Turn-by-turn Navigation, Full Color Maps, Touch Screen
"No other bike computer in the world for under $300 offers you a full color screen with maps, turn-by-turn navigation, Garmin quality GPS maps and touch screen," says Squire. He adds, "There is no such product and your iPhone can't hold a candle to what this will do, that's a fact."
"This is like a full-on Garmin car GPS mapping system on your handlebars," says Squire. He adds, "With over 200 points of interest, i.e. waypoints, and turn-by-turn navigation you just can't beat it for a touring cyclist, especially if you are on unfamiliar roads anywhere worldwide."
Need Heart Rate? Get the Edge Touring Plus
"If you would like to add heart rate data then simply buy the Garmin Edge Touring Plus and a Garmin Premium Chest Strap 3," says Squire. He adds, "We also highly recommend the Garmin Edge out front bike mount as an accessory because it puts the computer a few inches in front of your handlebars and is much safer for viewing."
Mapping and Altitude Correction
"The cool thing about this bike computer is the level of mapping and metric detail you can get after the fact in the complimentary Garmin Connect software," says Squire. He adds, "The altitude correction feature is the nuts because it takes GPS based altitudes, which are not very accurate and applies known USGS survey points to screw them down to incredibly accurate."
"This bike computer brings touring cyclists a level of features in the form of turn-by-turn directions, full color maps and touch screen that no other cycling computers made for touring have," says Squire. He adds, "It is truly unique and gives Garmin the absolute lead in bike touring computers."
The Garmin Edge Touring is on sale at the Heart Rate Watch Company for $249.99 and the Garmin Touring Elite is $299.99. "The units will be available for delivery after mid-September but you can pre-order them now at Heart Rate Watch Company or call us at 866-586-7129," says Squire.
