For your 2-wheeled adventures on the road or trail, know where to go with Edge Explore 820. This GPS bike computer features a built-in Garmin Cycle Map with points of interest, bike-friendly trails and more. It also has a high-resolution touchscreen that's easy to read, even in sunlight, and our new GroupTrack feature lets you and your friends know each other's whereabouts, even when the road forks. Now you can navigate with confidence.
GroupTrack Keeps Tabs on the Whole Pack
Part of the fun of exploring is doing it with your riding group. Now, everyone is free to ride at their own pace without worrying about losing the pack. Edge Explore 820 has group tracking capabilities, so when 1 of your friends falls out of sight, they don't fall off the map. You're free to keep on riding and catch up with each other later. It's as easy as pairing your device through the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app and then looking at your screen to see real-time updates.
The Touchscreen You've Been Waiting For
You're going to find so many uses for all the navigation capabilities and cool features packed inside the Edge Explore 820, but you'll love its high-resolution touchscreen. The capacitive touch display is quick and responsive, even when wet or used with gloves.
Varia Compatibility for Increased Cycling Awareness
Edge Explore 820 offers incident detection2 capabilities via an integrated accelerometer, which sends your map location to an emergency contact if an incident occurs. To assist in incident avoidance, Edge Explore 820 is also compatible with our wide range of Varia cycling awareness products, including Varia rearview radar and smart bike lights. See and be seen when Edge Explore 820 is paired with these bike lights or the radar, which detects approaching traffic.
