Edge® Explore


Discover new routes, and stay connected wherever you ride with Edge Explore. This easy-to-use GPS cycling computer features a preloaded Garmin Cycle Map that shows you the routes cyclists like to ride. A variety of connected features lets you stay in touch with other riders as well as the folks back home. With Edge Explore, you have the perfect partner for touring and adventure.

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.
