Garmin Edge 1000 Performance Bundle - RRP: £499
Features and Specifications
Along with in-ride challenges and connected features, the Garmin Edge 1000 offers advanced bike-specific navigation and mapping capabilities. The preloaded Garmin Cycle Map includes Open Street Map content with routable road and cycle paths, elevation data, points of interest and address search. Mapping data is stored onboard the Edge, so your access to navigation and performance capabilities isn’t dependent on mobile phone coverage. What's more, map updates are free.
The 76mm / 3 inch, high-resolution colour touchscreen is customisable according to the ride.
For instance, out of town, you can set up the screen to display, say, speed, distance travelled, descent/ascent and heart rate
In town, you might make do with temperature, time of day, and distance to your destination.
Know Where to Go
Now you can explore more, on and off road, thanks to the Garmin Edge 1000's round-trip routing feature. Simply enter how far you want to ride, and the Edge 1000 calculates up to 3 cycling-friendly routes. You can even review the elevation profiles before making your selection. It also offers a new route planner capability that allows you to create routes directly on the Edge 1000 using the map, POI and segments you’ve downloaded from Garmin Connect. Again, you can preview the elevation profile of your custom route before you roll. If you do get off course or want to end your ride sooner, Edge can always guide you back to the start or calculate the most direct route and provide turn-by-turn directions to get you back.
