Updating multiple gps with one garmin disk
These can be places to eat, monuments, or simply an address.
Garmin has pre-loaded the unit with free maps from Open Street Map – which is actually a pretty big shift for the company where most maps cost users money.
There are two variants of the unit: Edge Touring (standard): 9US Edge Touring Plus: 9US – adds ANT HR support, ANT e Bike support, and the barometric altimeter Ultimately, the Edge Touring is physically an Edge 800 hardware unit (thus, has the same battery life, screen size, etc…) with different firmware on it.
This practice is common with Garmin, and we’ve seen it done in other units – i.e.
This is really targeting a different (though equally as important) market: Cycling tourism. Thus think of the Touring as a highly simplified version of the Edge 800/810. It’s for someone who simply wants to go for a casual ride and not get lost.The Touring will be available in the Fall of this year.I’m hearing that’ll likely be late September or early October.It did take a bit of time (perhaps 2 minutes) to come up with the routes.Each route is roughly the distance you’ve specified, and all routes come back to where you started.
Looking at those three areas, the most interesting (I think anyway) is actually the quick creation of round trip routes from the unit itself.
