Garmin have announced a new variant for the Edge 1000.
The Edge 1000 has a nice large screen. The new ‘explore’ features essentially are satnav-directional type features. So you can plan routes for your bike when you are somewhere and want to get somewhere else.
At £350 it’s an expensive bike-satnav.
OK fair enough it does also have many of those smart notification and GLONASS type features. Don’t be fooled that the Edge 1000 is a feature-superior model to the 500 series. The key word for this product is EXPLORE…if you are an EXPLORER then this MAY be for you.
Whilst I’m a little dismissive of this product, I have to say that I was in the wild mountains of Wales this week and got lost and I was not following a route. If I had this Edge I would have got back MUCH more easily than the exhausting mountain-fest that my short ride turned into!!
So; we’re all different and I am sure this product will be great for the specific needs of some of you. Happy exploring!
