WHAT IS A CYCLE GPS?A cycling computer is a small digital GPS device that holds various features to aid your bicycle ride or training. It tracks your cycling movement, location and performance as well as monitors your speed, burnt calories, distance, height, laps and location. These features usually include GPS components, which makes the bicycle computer an ideal training companion because you can pinpoint your exact location.
A GPS bicycle computer is ideal for any type of cycling including mountain biking to city commuting because it enables turn by turn bike navigation. Think of the GPS device currently in your car. It directs you road by road, turn by turn, leading you safely to your destination, redirecting you when you make a wrong turn. Turn by turn bike navigation is the same, however instead of an in-car GPS, you use a GPS bicycle computer.
Like in-car GPS and handheld devices, a cycle GPS unit has a chip installed that enables it to pinpoint your location. You can plan your ride ahead and stop at points of interests along the way. GPS receivers are now made waterproof, lightweight and small enough to fit on a bike mount without hassle. A bicycle computer is ideal for training, every day and touring rides or any adventure you want to share with friends later.
