OK. the 1030 is going to be released next week. Let’s play the game and publicise the planned leaks.
This is clever.
You fasten the 1030 onto a battery with the standard Garmin mount connector. Presumably that could also sit between your 1030 and your out-front mount. Maybe. Definately. let’s hope so.
HEADS UP: Headline Specs and FIRST OPINION here
I had imagined the 1030 would have two batteries – a small capacity ‘fallover’ battery (to keep it powered on whilst changing the main battery eg a coin cell) and a replaceable/rechargeable main battery that would pop in and out of the 1030. I was wondering how they would handle that mechanism and other related factors…looks like Garmin designers are far cleverer than me and realised that the spare battery didn’t need to go inside the device!!
Clever. Interesting. But we, sort of, knew that anyway,
