I Want One: Garmin Bike GPS

Bike riding isn't just a workout — it's an adventure. I'm so tempted to explore roads I've never been on, but I worry about getting lost. A regular ol' bike computer just won't cut it. That's why I really want this Garmin Edge 705 ($407.12). I know it's pricey but check out what it can do.

This device includes a bike mount that snaps easily to your handlebars. The full-color screen displays your heart rate, cadence, speed, distance, time, calories burned, altitude, climb, and descent. It records your data and even allows you to share your data wirelessly with other Edge 705 buddies after your ride. If you want road maps, you'll need to purchase data cards that contain maps of the areas you plan to ride in. They're around $100-200, but they'll enable you to go anywhere your feet can peddle. The display gives you turn-by-turn directions so you can travel where you want to easily, and it'll also show you the way back home. The satellite signal is strong enough to work under tall trees and buildings, and the screen can be seen clearly in bright sun. If I've piqued your interest, and you have a birthday coming up, you may want to hint about this Edge 705.

FYI: You don't need a GPS to follow cycling team Garmin / Chipotle in the Tour de France. You can follow the daily action at their website.

Do you know of any walking GPS units? I know that sounds a bit But try living in Chicago and using a regular gps unit (ie. via my phone), you'll end up walking around the block in a circle, way out of the way, just because the gps doesnt understand u are not in a car and thus do not need to follow one way road directions.
