Product Expert Bike navigation

The Garmin Edge 520 tells performance-oriented bikers everything every bike enthusiast wants to know. It'll let you know your distance, average speed, and inclination. The bike navigation detects at which height you're at very precisely, thanks to the integrated barometric altimeter. Want to measure more? No problem. ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart let you connect multiple sensors to the bike navigation system simultaneously. If you also link your smartphone to the Edge 520 via Bluetooth, you can even receive messages and calls on the display. When you're done cycling, you can review your data in Garmin Connect, Strava, or another cycling app.

Note: the Edge 520 only lets you navigate preloaded routes. If you deviate from this route, the bike navigation system can't recalculate the route to your final destination
