A GPS for bicycle touring has become essential. GPS is an acronym for Global Positioning system that can be useful to navigate when bicycle touring in unfamiliar area.
You must still carry a map, as your GPS for bicycle touring units don’t always work the way you might expect, and you don’t always have the coordinates you need for a destination, so you need a paper map for reference as backup. GPS units don’t work well, if at all, in under tree heavy cover so if you’re in a forest, you may need to find a clearing to set your position, which isn’t always easy.
Take a look at the cycling computers and GPS for bicycle touring below.
