magellan cyclo 315 review

Designed for the serious cyclist, Magellan's Cyclo 315 and 315hc cycling GPS computers are rugged, waterproof to IPX-7 standards and feature a vibrant 3" color screen that can be read in direct sunlight. They have a simple interface with large buttons that allow gloved hands to navigate through the setup and operation.

Optimize your ride

Using up to 6 custom cycling profiles, the Magellan Cyclo 315 and 315hc will show you routes that are specifically optimized for your equipment and riding style. For example, let Cyclo know that you're mountain biking and it will create a route that focuses on dirt and gravel roads, rather than paved ones.


Cyclo 315 and 315hc have several workout modes for a wide range of training goals. They include 'Distance', 'Time', 'Calories' and 'Heart Rate Zone'.

Surprise Me Routing

If you're new to a region or want to discover new routes based on your preferences, the Cyclo 315 and 505 HC have a unique 'Surprise Me' routing function that coordinates three surprising bike routes for you after you enter your start point and distance criteria. Each route will be different, but they will all include elevation gain and a percentage of unpaved terrain to keep you from getting bored on your next ride.

Shake & Share

If you're riding with friends, the 'Shake n Share' feature allows you to wirelessly transmit saved routes to another Cyclo 315 or 505 by shaking the units towards one another. This makes it easy to share your ride and mapping information with your buddies - whether you're on the road or the trails.
