Garmin ecoRoute HD


Garmin's ecoRoute HD ($149.99, list) is a Bluetooth-enabled hardware add-on for select ecoRoute-enhanced nüvi navigation devices. Plug the ecoRoute HD into your car's ODB-II port and pair it wirelessly with your Garmin GPS device, and the latter...

Simple setup. Helps improve driving efficiency. Detects engine codes. Can reset a check engine light

Only works with select Garmin nüvi PNDs. Can track only one car's historic trip performance at a time

The Garmin ecoRoute HD can help save you some cash, and it's a great (and spectacularly geeky) way to learn more about your car's engine, as well as your driving habits.

Garmin Edge 510


The Garmin Edge 510 is the best bike GPS on the market. Find out why in our review.

The Edge 510 offers excellent functionality, a touchscreen interface and best-in-class battery life. Plus, it is easy to use. It provides everything a serious cyclist would want for a reasonable price

The Edge 510 does not support in-ride maps, which could be frustrating if you ride in unfamiliar places and want turn-by-turn navigation

The Garmin Edge 510 is the best bike GPS on the market. Its combination of functionality and value is unmatched, and its preloaded course navigation feature is sufficient for all but the most demanding navigation needs.

Garmin Edge 810


The Garmin Edge 810 has a touch interface and turn-by-turn navigation. Learn more in our review.

The Edge 810 has turn-by-turn navigation and compatibility with ANT+ sensors. It can connect with your smartphone to add live GPS tracking and automatic ride upload

The Edge 810 is bulky, and the map-based navigation is the only feature that separates it from the next cheapest option in the Garmin Edge line

There is a lot to like about the Edge 810, as it offers nearly everything a serious cyclist needs in a bike GPS.

Garmin Edge 500


Although the Garmin Edge 500 lacks a color display and a touchscreen interface, there are still plenty of features and design specs that keep it ranked as one of the best bike GPS units available

The Edge 500 has proven a valuable training aid to thousands of cyclists. It's easy to use and offers good functionality for its price

A monochrome screen, press-button navigation and no smartphone integration make the Edge 500 feel a bit dated

The Edge 500 is no longer the premier bike GPS on the market. However, it's still a reliable unit with excellent functionality and value.

Product Specifications

Take your ride to the next level with the Edge 305 - Garmin's GPS-enabled, personal trainer and cycle computer. From competitive road racing to mountain biking, the cyclist-friendly, lightweight Edge will help you achieve your personal best. With the easy-to-use Edge 305 on your bike, you'll always know where you're going and how far you've gone. For advanced cyclists, the Edge 305 comes packaged with either a heart rate monitor or wireless speed/pedaling cadence sensor to provide valuable feedback. Heart rate and speed cadence are also sold separately as accessories so you can incorporate both features into your training. In addition, the Edge 305 incorporates a barometric altimeter for extremely accurate elevation and vertical profile data. Recreational cyclists looking for the perfect touring companion and fitness partner will love the Edge 305. The Edge 305 with heart rate lets you see whether you are training too hard or not enough. The heart rate monitor uses a robust wireless technology that eliminates cross-talk and interference and sends heart rate data to the Edge via a soft, comfortable chest strap. This data is stored with each track point for post-workout analysis. The Edge 305 with cadence includes a self-calibrating, wireless speed/cadence sensor so you can monitor your pedaling cadence as you ride. Like the heart rate monitor, the speed/cadence sensor uses the same robust wireless technology to measure and report your pedaling strokes per minute. With its waterproof, sleek design, the Edge is the perfect companion on any bike, and attaches to either the stem or handlebars. Its rugged case frames an easy-to-read, large, backlit display that can show up to eight different data fields along with altitude and a map view. Included Training Center software gives you the ability to overlay your ride data onto a course map. It offers interactive analysis tools that measure your speed, distance, climb, and descent against varying terrain, elevation and more. Create and schedule custom workouts or use workout templates and download to the Edge.
