Overview

Our take on the Garmin Edge® 20

Once I bought my first GPS cycling computer, I knew I'd never go back to the bad old days. No more running cables to sensors or fiddling with wheel-mounted magnets. I just clipped the computer in the mount and I had speed and distance information right in front of me — not to mention an accurate map of where I'd been after the ride. Garmin's put the utility (and fun) of a cycling computer into the Edge 20, simply the smallest, lightest, and maybe most convenient cycling computer around. But don't let the small size fool you — Edge 20 packs a lot into its slight frame.

Compact but powerful

Enjoy the ride (and the data)

Edge 20's high-sensitivity GPS receiver records speed, distance, and time, plus ascent and descent. Edge 20 will even pause automatically when you stop for a break. You can customize the data fields on the screen to your taste, and then easily check out your ride when you're done with summary pages. Compare successive rides over the same route with the Courses feature.

Analyze and share

When you get home, plug your Edge 20 into your computer for the full story on your ride, including maps that track your performance with detailed pace and elevation charts. And you can join the online community at Garmin Connect™ to share your data with others.

Easy...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install -- put the mounting plate your handlebar and secure with the rubber straps, and twist-lock the computer into the mounting plate. The computer comes off the plate with a quick twist for charging or when you park your bike outside a store/restaurant. Easy to use -- just four buttons, and the vital statistics (time, distance, speed) are always visible while riding. I have not tried connecting to my computer and downloading ride info -- I want to see how far and fast I'm riding when I'm out, but I don't want to track the info over time.

Pros: Easy to install and use. No wires on the bike.

Cons:

Features

Overview: The Garmin Edge 20 is a compact, GPS-enabled bicycle computer that records how far, how fast, and where you ride. You can upload and share details of your ride via Garmin Connect. The Edge 20 is waterproof (IPX7 rated), and comes with two standard handlebar mounts, so you can mount it on multiple bikes.

Display: The Edge 20 has a backlit monochrome LCD (0.9" x 0.9"), with a display resolution of 128 x 160 pixels. The display can show the time, distance, and speed of your ride. Total ascent and calories burned are recorded while the timer is running.

GPS Navigation: The Edge 20 has a built-in high-sensitivity GPS receiver. Courses can be sent from your Garmin Connect account to your device so you can navigate the course. This allows you to follow the same course and compare your performance to past rides. The time of day and the date can be manually set, or set automatically by the GPS receiver. Up to 10 rides can be saved in the device's history.

GLONASS: In challenging environments, the Edge 20 can use GLONASS in addition to GPS for faster position location data. GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System) is a Russian-operated satellite based navigation system similar to GPS (Global Positioning System), and can be used as an alternative. You can turn GLONASS on or off as needed.

Controls: The controls are located on the outer edges of the device. Four buttons are provided: Power/Backlight, Start/Stop Timer, Scroll the Menu, and Mark New Lap/Return to Previous screen.

Waterproof: The Edge 20 is waterproof to IEC Standard 60529 IPX7. It can withstand immersion in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. The casing is totally sealed, including the side-mounted controls.

Auto Pause: The built-in timer will pause automatically when it detects you're not moving. The timer will restart when you resume your ride.

Auto Lap: The Auto Lap feature lets you automatically mark the lap at a specific position. This helps you compare your performance over different parts of a ride (i.e. a long climb or training sprints). You can also use Auto Lap to mark laps at a specific distance.

User Profile: The Edge 20 allows you to enter data about yourself to create a User Profile. This data (gender, birth year, weight, and height) is used to calculate accurate ride data.

Garmin Connect: Free web-based Garmin Connect software lets you store your workout data for comprehensive analysis. Garmin Connect is used by cyclists worldwide, and presents your data in an easily understood manner, with maps, reports, and suggested activities.

Courses: The Edge 20 can save your ride data as you train. From that saved data, you can use Garmin Connect software to create courses that you can follow in the future. Each time you follow the course, the unit will compare your time to previous rides, or to other riders, and let you set performance goals. As you ride along the course, the display will indicate distance and time to upcoming maneuvers.

Virtual Races: Downloaded courses contain segments that can be used as virtual race courses. As you ride, you can race against a segment, comparing your performance to past activities, connections in your Garmin Connect account, or other members of the Garmin Connect community.

Power Requirements: The unit is powered by a built-in Lithium-Ion battery. It charges via the included charging cradle/USB cable when connected to your computer or a USB charging port. Under typical usage, the battery life is approximately 8 hours on a full charge.

Mounting: The Edge 20 can be mounted to your bicycle's handlebars. Two sizes of O-rings are included for best fit. Two complete standard mounts are included to allow you to use the unit on multiple bikes. Optional mounts, such as the Extended Out-Front Bike Mount, are compatible with the Edge 20.
