We didn’t see these tiny GPS units on display at Interbike, which is a shame because I would have loved to hold one of these tiny Garmin Edge units in person! The new Garmin Edge 20 and 25 GPS units are standalone devices that track basic stats like time, distance, speed, elevation gain, and location. The best part: they weigh just 25g!
The new Edge units are also said to include navigation capabilities so you can follow tracks downloaded from Singletracks and the Garmin Connect online community. The maps are super basic (after all, the Edge offers a tiny black and white screen) but should work well enough.
Both the Edge 20 and 25 include GPS and GLONASS receivers for maximum accuracy, even in places where cell phone signals dare not tread. The Edge 25 adds wireless capabilities to connect to a smartphone for more detailed maps (on your smartphone), live tracking, and easy ride data sharing.
Both units are simple to install, lightweight, and super affordable: the Edge 20 retails for just $129.99 while the Edge 25 is a few bucks more at $169.99. Both units are currently available for purchase at Garmin.com.
