All cyclists love a healthy chunk of data, and a decent GPS is the easiest way to get a hit of those addictive numbers. Black Friday arrives this week and will be a prime opportunity to ensure you can keep on getting your data fix. If you can’t wait, there are already some great money off deals to be had.
We’ve got deals on the diminutively sized Garmin Edge 25, the performance and training minded Edge 520, the updated Edge 520 Plus, as well as the Edge 820, which adds additional navigation guidance.
We’ve also got the Lezyne Super GPS, which offers great value for money, and finally, we move back to Garmin with the Edge 1030, the most fully featured and comprehensively capable device you could need for any eventuality.

We highly rate the diminutive Edge 25 Matthew Allen / Immediate Media
The Garmin Edge 25 is one of our favourite GPS units on the market. It packs in much of the tech featured on units many times its size while taking up barely any space on your bars. The perfect set and forget unit to just go out riding with.

The Edge 520 is our favourite mid-range GPS units from Garmin Ben Delaney / Immediate Media
The Garmin Edge 520 is perfect for performance-minded riders who want to keep track of all their data during training. Featuring live tracking, Di2 integration, smartphone alerts and connectivity, with perhaps more than you’ll ever need, the 520 is one of our favourite mid-range GPS devices.
If you want to track absolutely all your stats, we’d recommend going for a bundle that includes a heart-rate strap and cadence monitor.
Garmin Edge 520 Plus —
The Edge 520 Plus improves battery life and adds a few extra features over the 520 Bike Radar / Immediate Media
The updated Garmin Edge 520 Plus builds on the existing 520 platform. Key amongst the added features are the improved battery life and automatic re-routing when following a pre-programmed course.
As with all Garmin units, the navigation is excellent and the computer should have all the features you could ever need for your training and riding.

The Edge 820 adds some additional navigation features over the 520 Ben Delaney / Immediate Media
The Edge 820 looks very similar to the Edge 520, but it adds some additional navigation functionality that lets the GPS do on-the-fly route planning. That’s handy if you like to go exploring during your rides or have a tendency to get lost.

It’s got all the data, notifications and information you need to keep up to date with your training, and now at even more of a bargain price.

For the ultimate GPS device for training and touring this is it. Garmin’s top-end unit has full-featured rich data combined with robust navigation for any eventuality. It doesn’t come cheap, but it’s the GPS that has it all.
