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
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
Extended Out-Front Bike Mount, are compatible with the Edge 20.
