Ready for the Road Ahead
There’s no time wasted with Edge Explore. This bike computer is simple to set up and ready to ride as soon as it comes out of the box. When you can see the directions you need at a glance, you don’t have to miss the amazing views. That’s why we designed Edge Explore with a 3” display that’s bright and easy to see — whether you’re riding in direct sunlight, on a cloudy day or even in the rain. The touchscreen is snappy and responsive, even when you’re wearing gloves.
Ride Toward Adventure
With Edge Explore, you can get lost in the adventure without actually losing your way. It comes preloaded with the Garmin Cycle Map, which directs you to just about anything — from scenic countryside routes to eateries and bike shops. The routes are generated with Trendline popularity routing, pulling from billions of miles of cycling data. It makes it easy to ride like a local, along with the routes and trails that actual cyclists prefer. Along the way, Edge Explore provides turn-by-turn directions, and, of course, it’s smart enough to guide you back to the route — or back to start — if you deviate from it or decide to head home early.
Enhanced Cycling Awareness
Edge Explore is compatible with our Varia line of cycling awareness devices, including rearview radar and smart bike lights. By pairing the radar with your Edge, you can get alerts right on your Edge display to cars approaching from behind, helping you see and be seen by the traffic around you. Edge Explore has an assistance feature and built-in incident detection, which automatically sends your location to an emergency contact if you run into difficulty.
Keep your phone packed away, and just enjoy the ride because Edge Explore has all the smart connections you need. Use LiveTrack to let your friends and family follow your real-time location, or use GroupTrack to keep tabs on up to 50 of your riding buddies. If your fellow riders pull ahead or fall behind, rider-to-rider messaging (with a compatible smartphone) lets you send prewritten notes from your Edge bike computer to theirs. Let your friends know if you’ll catch up in a few minutes or if they should go on without you. If you have a flat tire or need assistance, you can send a message to your fellow riders who are paired with GroupTrack, so they can find you.
Customize Your Device
It’s easy to customize your Edge Explore bike computer with the free apps, widgets and data fields you want from our Connect IQ store. Apps such as AccuWeather MinuteCast let you know when the rain will stop so you can find time for a ride. And, if you plan your rides on sites such as Strava, Komoot or Wikiloc, download those apps so you can have your favorite routes imported directly to your Edge for you to follow. Or if you’re looking for a nearby café or bike shop, use the Yelp app to download their locations, and route directly to them on your Edge device.
