Mega XL Loaded GPS Bike Computer
About the only thing that could improve Lezyne's much-lauded Mega XL cycling computer would be to bundle it with some must-have accessories to log some serious data and the Mega XL Loaded GPS Bike Computer does just that. Sitting at the top of the heap in its bike computer range, this GPS possesses a huge 2.7-inch screen with a 200x400 high-resolution display giving you real-time ride stats and receiving incoming texts, calls, and notifications from your smartphone so you can stay connected as well as turn-by-turn navigation. The Mega XL differs from Lezyne's other new GPS offering, the Mega C, by featuring a bigger display that can be situated both vertically and horizontally, and it also has a longer battery life that runs for an unheard-of 48 hours. Add in the additional Flow heart rate and cadence sensor, Forward mount, and a trick caring case and you have one of the coolest cycling computer packages to hit the market.
The Mega XL can simultaneously pair with Bluetooth Smart or ANT+ enabled power meters, heart rate monitors, and speed or cadence sensors, showing you real-time stats such as calories burned, elevation, distance, speed, laps and lap averages, and the grade of your ride. The free Ally V2 smartphone app also allows you to receive incoming texts, phone calls, and message notifications to keep you connected if you choose, even if you're blowing off some steam and trying to disconnect. The GPS/Glonass system provides turn-by-turn navigation, offline maps and re-routing, and custom route building to help your ride stay on track from start to finish.
It operates through an intuitive four-button operation to keep you focused on the road ahead, while the battery life indicator shows you how much power is left in both your Mega XL and the paired device you are using it with. Speaking of the battery, this GPS computer uses a lithium-polymer battery that's able to run for an impressive 48 hours and charges easily with an included micro USB charging cable. An extremely weather-resistant construction keeps things operating smoothly when you get caught in a passing rainstorm, and the included X-Lock mount and Forward mount gives you options for securing the computer so it stays in place over chunky gravel and smooth tarmac alike. The Mega XL can easily be connected to riding apps like TrainingPeaks, Today's Plan, and Strava to follow starred segments and routes or structured workouts, as well as allow friends and family members to follow along with your ride in real-time.
