Garmin delays GPS device for bikes

The top models in its "Edge" line are postponed until next year.

The Edge 705 Garmin

Given our position on physical activity , our appreciation for such gadgets as bicycle GPS devices is predictably limited (as in nonexistent). From what we understand, however, some hard-core cyclists have been anxiously awaiting the release of Garmin's latest "Edge" models, the 605 and 705, top-of-the-line devices that include new mapping features, training systems and the ability to share information wirelessly with other bikers on their 2.2-inch color LCDs.

But they'll have to wait. GPSLodge says Garmin has encountered some bumps in the road (sorry) and is postponing its release from the scheduled December launch date to the first quarter of 2008. On the bright side, you'll have another $400 or $500 to spend on holidays gifts this year.
