Garmin Edge Explore GPS cycling computer packed with features

Garmin has announced the Edge explore which is a feature packed GPS cycling computer ready for the road with routing and cycling safety awareness features.

Recently the company has been on a roll with new products with the Edge 130 and the Fenix 5 Plus series and now its time for the Edge Explorer.

Garmin has traditionally launched an Explorer range with an Edge model, but I think they have got the message that no one wants to buy them at the stupid prices they released them at, so this new Edge Explore priced at $249 might be just the cycling computer people have been looking for

Route Planning Made Simple

Create routes directly on Edge Explore 1000 using the preloaded map and points of interest. Simply set the direction and distance the Edge Explorer will do the rest.

One thing to note is that Garmin does not include Trendline routing like found in the Edge 1030, but in my experience its pretty much the same

Safer Cycling Environment

When it comes to safety features, Edge Explore plays nice with Garmin Varia products. This means you can pair it with the RTL511 bike radar for alerts on traffic coming from behind, up to 140 meters away. The UT800 smart light lights up the road ahead of you and adjusts to your speed. If you happen to be in an unfortunate accident, Edge Explore will automatically send your location to pre-selected emergency contacts.
