Magellan Cyclo 315

The Magellan Cyclo 315 is a full color 3” touch screen cycling computer. The company was founded in 1986 and is one of the leaders within the GPS industry.

The computer is preloaded with detailed maps in the U.S. It contains up to 35,000 cycle lanes and 5,000 tracks including points of interest such as shops and pit stops. The Surprise Me option is a feature that gives riders optional routes to select from. Just configure the time or distance, and the computer will generate 3 different routes.

The computer is also very versatile with its ANT+ and profile customizations. It can be paired with over 130 ANT+ sensors including Shimano’s Di2 shifting system. Cyclo’s screen can generate up to 4 metrics per page while riding. There are also 6 profiles a cyclist can create depending on their equipment setup. Although the unit is versatile, it does have some weaknesses in its system.

The Cyclo has some connectivity and support issues. It was first launched in 2014, and the company has not created many updates since. The device cannot be recognized with anything above a USB 2.0 port, and the base-map is only updated to 2015. Due to the lack of upgrades, Magellan’s ride App does not work for most customers as support has ceased.

Otherwise, the Magellan Cyclo 315 is a great device for riders that desire something more than the standard device. Luckily, it is compatible with Strava so users can review their journey there.
