Pyle Audio Gets Into Bikes with ANT+, Google Maps GPS Enabled Bike Computer
As if there weren’t enough options for cycle computers already, now Pyle Audio’s Pyle Sports division is getting into the cycling game with their new PSBCG90 Smart Bicycling Computer. Since the 1960′s Pyle has been a name in the audio world with products like their Pyle Driver woofers, but since the 2000′s the company has been expanding their reach to include the sports and outdoor markets as well.
Admittedly a far cry from metal detectors, cooler bags with built-in sound systems, and hunting cameras, their first attempt at a cycling computer brings some interesting features to the table. Pyle PSBCG90 Smart Bicycling Computer in addition to a super long name offers post workout GPS functions, 80 hours of memory for functions like Ghost riders, and ANT+ compatibility, all under $140.
While the computer boasts “integrated Google Maps,” it’s not quite as good as it sounds. You can’t actually use the computer to navigate with Google Maps as you are riding, but you can download the ride afterwards and see the exact route via Google Maps. Similar to computers like the Sigma ROX 10.0 however, it does look like you can plot rides with the included GPS software and then use the computer to follow waypoints to get to your final destination.
In addition to the GPS functions, the computer includes a built in Smart Sensor to record speed and distance, as well as a barometric altimeter and ANT+ capabilities for adding heart rate, cadence, speed, RPM, distance, power meters and sensors from Garmin and Motorola, etc.
One other critical detail – the GPS software is Windows compatible only. Available now in 5 colors.
