Garmin Adds Ride-Specific Map Improvements and Faster Route Calculation Speeds for Edge Computers

Garmin has announced the addition of ride-specific map improvements and faster route calculation speeds for its Edge 530, Edge 830, Edge 1030 and Edge 1030 Plus GPS cycling computers via a free software update.

With this update, Garmin says cyclists will experience the following:

  • New clean, high contrast maps that make bike-friendly road, gravel or mountain routes more visible in all light conditions.
  • A Trendline popularity heatmap based on billions of miles of uploaded ride data now layered directly onto the map and adjusts automatically based on ride type so cyclists can instantly see the most relevant places to ride.
  • Faster route calculation speeds, allowing cyclists to start riding more quickly. Now, after a route has been calculated once, it’s cached so cyclists can get started in seconds.

Additionally, cyclists can update their Edge automatically via Wi-Fi or by using Garmin Express.

Garmin also encourages cyclists to update their maps via Garmin Express to get the latest improvements and most up-to-date popularity routing data.
