Magellan Cyclo 315 Review

 

Main advantage

 

With a water-resistant IPx-7 rating, you will be able to take the Magellan Cyclo 315 with you on all your outdoor adventures since it can handle any terrain no matter how rugged it is. Biking in the rain will no longer be a danger to your reliable gadget, and the 3” color touchscreen comes with large control buttons to make it easy to move through the screen even when pedaling at high speed.

You can also swipe anywhere on the screen when using gloves since the buttons are large enough and the touchscreen is also sensitive to record those swipes. It comes with the complete USA road network that is personalized to show cycle lanes, tracks, and bike shop points of interest.

 

Main disadvantage

 

While most customers are satisfied with this product, especially with just how cheap it is, there is one problem that seems to plague a good share of the models. If you have a Windows computer that runs the latest version of Windows 10, chances are that the Cyclo 315 will not be able to connect to your computer. Hopefully, this is a bug that the manufacturer will solve soon.

Let the device surprise you

Finding the perfect route can be a real pain since you have lots of locations to choose from and the time you waste considering all the details can make you lose on the actual riding time. Forget about all that because the Cyclo 315 has a nifty little feature to make life easier for you with a function is called “Surprise Me.”

What this function will do is create up to 3 routes for a rider to choose from. You will just have to input a distance or a time interval, and the device will do all the work for you.

The routes will show all the details you need such as the elevation gain and amount of unpaved road or difficulty. All these details will allow you to choose the track that is best suited for your riding style and equipment.

 

ANT+ sensor support

If you want to wear some speed, cadence or heart rate straps, with this Magellan unit you can do just that since it supports over 150 ANT+ sensors and monitor. All the data that these sensors pick will be shown on the generous 3” display.
