GPS maker Magellan taps US market with its cycling GPS units

Cyclo 315 and 315hc are powerful GPS cycling computers designed to provide the most routing options and sensor support for the serious cyclist.

US: GPS device manufacturer Magellan will launch its Cyclo 315 and 505 cycling GPS units in the North American market in May. The Cyclo GPS series was originally released by Magellan to the Australian and European markets in 2013, and will compete with GPS device manufacturer Garmin in the very competitive market.

The company claims that Cyclo 505 is the first GPS cycling computer to include Shimano Di2 gear data display and recording, Bluetooth HRM/SAC sensor support, Android and iOS smartphone support for call and SMS notifications, Indoor ANT+ trainer support and enhanced ANT+ power meter support.

To help cyclists navigate with ease, the Cyclo units come complete with a highly detailed road network with cycling POI's, enabling turn-by-turn navigation, as well as the very popular OpenStreetMap bike network, for either US or Canada region.

Both models have a 3-inch touchscreen and ANT+ support to help athletes track heart rate, speed, cadence, and power during the journey. The Cyclo 315 and Cyclo 505 will cost $349.99 and $429, respectively.
