Edge 605

 

The Garmin Edge 605 is a combination bike GPS and cycle computer. It has the ability to read maps as well as provide data on speed, distance, time, calories burned, climb and descent information.

The color interface gives you more detail in your map display and offers turn-by-turn navigation

A heart rate monitor and cadence/speed sensor cannot be used with this Garmin Edge
