Question Garmin Edge Explore Question

Hi everyone, I've just gotten a new Garmin Edge Explore and a new rode bike. My old Garmin was an ancient 500 and when I moved it between bikes I had to manually go into it to switch the bike profiles. Will this new Garmin automatically detect which bike I'm using when I move it from one to the other? I've tried to find the answer on Garmin's site but haven't had any luck.

The Explore only allows 1 user profile, so essentially it doesnít know or care which bike itís used on, so nothing to switch. If/when you add things like cadence or speed sensors, they get detected automatically.

After your done with your ride and its uploaded. You just have to go to Garmin's connect website and change gear. That is what I do between my Road and Gravel bike. Works well if I dont forget lol.
