Magellan Announces North American Launch of Cyclo Bicycle Navigation GPS Line

Magellan announced it is launching its Cyclo 315 and 505 GPS cycling computers in North America that are designed to provide the routing options, sensor support and connectivity for the serious cyclist. The Cyclo 505 is the first GPS cycling computer to include Shimano Di2 gear data display and recording, Bluetooth Smart 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 Open Street Map bike network, for either the U.S. or Canada. At 3" in size, both Cyclo 315 and Cyclo 505 feature the larger touch screens in the GPS cycling computer category. The units are specifically designed with an intuitive and easy-to-use interface to show cyclists the information they need at a glance, such as performance metrics, turn-by-turn directions, and connected ANT+ sensor data. Cyclists can also customize the data on the screen so they see what they want, when they want it. With dual-mount capability, either unit can be placed for easy viewing on the stem, handlebar, or out front. Cyclo 315 and Cyclo 505 are compatible with over 130 ANT+ sensors for monitoring heart rate, speed, cadence, power, and more. They also support wireless Shimano Di2 ANT to be able to read and record shifting information from compatible Di2 electronic shifting units. Other features of the Cyclo units include Surprise Me(TM) that suggests up to three graded loops based on time or distance; 4GB internal memory for recording time, speed, distance, altitude, and calories; and custom profiling input for road, city, or mountain bike attributes for optimizing routes. Cyclo 505 adds Bluetooth Smart and WiFi connectivity to the Cyclo 315's feature set. Built-in WiFi makes uploading new tracks and training data a breeze. Simply by pressing the "WiFi sync" button when wirelessly connected to the Internet, any saved routes and data from a ride are automatically synced to a rider's Magellan Cyclo account. From there, it can be seamlessly and automatically shared with third-party sites such as Strava. Cyclo 505 users enjoy iPhone and Android smartphone connectivity, so riders can see SMS messages and phone call alerts right on the Cyclo display. Cyclo 505 can also control a Bluetooth-enabled MP3 player. Additionally, the 'Shake n Share' feature allows wireless unit-to-unit route sharing with other Cyclo owners, so all riders within a group may follow the same route for added safety. Cyclo 505 is also Bluetooth Smart Sensor ready to connect the unit to other Bluetooth Smart-enabled accessories, such as heart rate monitors, speed/cadence and power sensors. Di2 Wireless Unit SM-EWW01 required Cyclo 315 and Cyclo 505 will be available in May 2014 at independent bike shops, sporting goods retailers and etailers across the U.S. for $349.99 and $429.99, respectively. The Cyclo 315 and 505 will also be offered in bundles that include heart rate monitor, speed and cadence sensors for $429.99 and $499.99.
