GPSRUMORS have had some info posted on the impending Vector 3 and Edge 1030 and the images here are hosted on that site. If they are removed from that site they will disappear from this site at the same time.
The pod has gone from the Vector 3 though which is a potentially good move. And the reader would have to assume a AAA battery in the spindle.
My thoughts & speculation (here) still seem vaguely sensible although you will see that we look set for another potential touchscreen debacle with the 1030 – look! only 2 buttons. Unsurprisingly there are the proprietary ADVANCED cycling dynamics (as well as the regular cycling dynamics) and lots of the new FIRSTBEAT stuff on recovery, TL and training status seem to have made their way through too.
Popularity derived routing looks interesting, providing it’s more than “Where’s my nearest cycle lane”
You’ll have to click the GPSRUMORS link to read and see more although 9 August (next week) looks like the formal announcement date. NOT the availability date.
Garmin do seem to be getting better at leaks and/or controlling their content assets. Even Mr Appelmoessite is quiet this time around (famous last words). I don’t have any PR-relationship with Garmin as I don’t want to be seen to be ‘in bed’ with the dominant market leader.
