Edge 1030

Navigation is what makes the 1000 level Edge units shine. Where other computers need a network connected smartphone, these are loaded with Garmin Cycle Map for North America. You get turn-by-turn routing, course creation and round-trip routing – no connection required. When connected, Trendline routing lets you ride like a local, anywhere Garmin users ride. Create a route, and the 1030 looks at Garmin Connect user’s data to leverage millions of recorded routes to find the best rides and most efficient routes. Touring off the grid for days at a time? The big battery lets you stay out longer. Add an optional external battery pack (not included) to more than double your runtime. Complementing the navigation functions are features like real-time Strava segment integration (requires Strava premium). Harness the power of your phone to show nearby segments on-the-fly, without having to pre-load segments. Strava route integration through Connect IQ, lets you pre-load routes and share favourites with the Strava community. Live Tracking continues to evolve, with rider-to-rider pre-set messaging (through your connected phone). You can not only see where your riding partners are, but send messages to their 1030. Garmin Connect’s mobile app lets you create custom workouts on your phone too. On its own the 1030 is a very capable GPS navigation and cycling computer, when paired with a phone running the Garmin Connect app you take it to a whole new level, with access to digital communities, messaging, tracking, training, apps and so much more.
