Garmin adds additional features to the Edge 1000 and 820 with JOIN cycling platform

Today Garmin announced a new partnership with the JOIN cycling platform. The JOIN applications for both the Garmin Connect IQ Store and the App Store are designed to help riders connect their daily cycling life on and off the bike. Everything users love about cycling is now combined into a single smart app for iOS.

JOIN connects everyday cyclists from all over the world by enhancing and developing the sport’s social nature through mobile technology. Cyclists can find rides all over the world, connect with friends and other cyclists, stay in touch, ride together and share their experiences through photos and comments.

The unique JOIN technology is available on the Garmin Edge 1000 and Edge 820 through a custom JOIN widget available on the Connect IQ store. Through the widget, users can browse and download routes and participate in rides directly from their Edge anywhere, anytime.

JOIN is one of the many new software features released for Garmin Edge devices. Other updates include Live Track Auto Start, Strava Beacon and support for Shimano and Trek accessories. For more information, visit the Garmin Connect IQ Store.
