The Edge 520 Plus is preloaded with the TopoActive Africa v4 maps and includes turn-by-turn navigation and navigation alerts that notify you of upcoming turns. Plus, it's smart enough to guide you back to the route or back to the start if you deviate from it or decide to head home early.


There's no need to reach for the phone or worry about your fellow riders when they pull ahead or fall behind. Rider-to-rider messaging lets you send prewritten notes from your Edge 520 Plus bike computer to theirs1. Let your friends know if you'll catch up in a few minutes or if they should go on without you. If you have a flat tyre or need assistance, you can send a message to your fellow riders who are paired with GroupTrack, so they can find you.


The Edge 520 Plus is compatible with ANT+ technology sensors, including speed, cadence and heart rate. For even more performance data, the Edge 520 Plus is also compatible with ANT+ power meters, including Garmin Vector 3 (sold separately). Garminís unique pedal-based power meter measures total power, left/right balance and cadence. You can even record cycling dynamics to get a better look at your form, including where your power is being applied on the pedal and throughout the pedal stroke.


With the addition of a heart rate strap (sold separately), you gain access to a variety of physiological data. See your cycling-specific VO2 max along with a recovery advisor, which analyses your data and tells you how long you should wait before attempting another hard ride. This connected system of sensors, accessories, cycling computer and post-ride analysis with Garmin Connect online community allows you to keep track of how your body performs from ride to ride.


It's easy to customise your Edge 520 Plus bike computer with the free apps, widgets and data fields you want from the Garmin Connect IQ store. Apps such as AccuWeather MinuteCast let you know when the rain will stop so you can find time for a ride. Get immediate feedback with the MPA and Power app from Xert so you can see if you're exceeding your maximum power available. A variety of configurable data fields show your favourite stats on a single, easy-to-read screen.


The Edge 520 Plus is compatible with Garminís Varia line of cycling awareness devices, including rear-view radar and smart bike lights. By pairing these devices with your Edge, you can get alerts right on your Edge display to approaching cars and help drivers see you. Use LiveTrack to let your friends and family follow your real-time location, or use GroupTrack2 to keep tabs on your riding buddies and let them keep tabs on you if you get separated. Edge 520 Plus even features built-in Incident Detection, which automatically sends your location to an emergency contact if you run into difficulty.


Garmin and Strava are bringing you even more ways to test your limits. You'll still get alerts for segment starts and finishes and be able to virtually compete against your own PR and Strava friends with a redesigned second-by-second comparison that shows how you measure up. But now you'll also be able to see how your current effort compares to your PR, your most recent efforts or the personal bests of your friends. Finally, with the preloaded Strava Routes Connect IQ app, starred routes can now be wirelessly sent to your Edge bike computer so you can navigate and compete on your favourite Strava segments at the same time.


The preloaded Best Bike Split app allows you to see how changes in weight, power and drag can affect your goal race time and it creates the perfect power plan for race day. With the Best Bike Split Race Sync app, your race day power plan will guide you to your best bike split ever. Simply link your Best Bike Split account with your Edge 520 Plus and all of your current race plans will be available at your fingertips. Create a Best Bike Split account today.


With the TrainingPeaks Connect IQ app, bringing your planned workout with you for every ride is as easy as turning on your Edge 520 Plus bike computer. The preloaded app puts your daily workout right on the Edge device. It guides you through your workout in real time, complete with intensity targets and interval durations. After your workout, sync to TrainingPeaks for detailed analysis and to measure progress toward your goals. Create a free TrainingPeaks account and get started with a free training plan.


With the Trailforks app, you can download trail maps to use offline when you go for a ride. Featuring trails from more than 80 countries, Trailforks maps include topographic information, points of interest, heatmaps, trail conditions, photos, videos and much more. Wherever you ride, you'll have access to the best, most up-to- date information so you can plan your ride, discover new trails and elevate your riding experience.
