Garmin Edge 305

Edge 305

Rugged, lightweight Garmin Edge 305 attaches easily to the stem or handlebars of your bike with the included bike mount. Just turn it on, acquire GPS satellites and go. Edge automatically measures your speed, distance, time, calories burned and altitude, heart rate (optional), speed/cadence (optional), and records this data for your review.

With the heart rate option, you can measure your heart rate and track your heart rate zone with the lightweight, comfortable heart rate strap. And with the speed/cadence option, you can monitor your pedaling cadence and wheel speed as you ride with the self-calibrating, wireless speed/cadence sensor that attaches securely to your bike.

This high-sensitivity GPS receiver tracks your position even in tree cover and canyons, making it extremely reliable for distance and speed information. Virtual Partner© lets you race a virtual competitor over a specified distance and speed. The Edge 305 lets you race against a previously recorded workout, so you can compare your current and past performances over the same ride.

As an added benefit, you can plan, analyze and store data from your workouts using free Garmin Training Center® software, which lets you analyze data with interactive graphs that chart your speed, time and elevation. Overlay your ride on a map so you can pinpoint specific areas and see how elevation and other factors affect your performance. Or, upload your workout data to MotionBased.com, Garmin's web-based application that provides in-depth analysis of your workouts, online mapping and route sharing that will take your training to the next level.

The Edge 305 is a really an advance GPS-enabled cycling computer with heart rate and cadence capabilities. It, however, does not have a base map nor does it have any mapping functions on the GPS receiver. If you want to be able to see your GPS route with turn-by-turn mapping while on your ride, then you need to consider the Gamin Edge 705.

Included With Purchase: Edge 305, (optional heart strap and speed/cadence sensor), bike mount, Garmin Training Center® CD, AC charger, USB interface cable, owner's manual, Quick-Start guide.
