The Edge 1030 GPS is a 3.5” bike computer with comprehensive navigation, performance, and cycling awareness features. The Trendline™ technology uses billions of miles of Garmin Connect™ ride data to show the best on- and off-road routes and the places that cyclists in the area prefer, while the preloaded Garmin Cycle Map provides turn-by-turn directions and new navigation alerts. The rider-to-rider messaging system also lets you stay in contact easily with other Garmin users – highly effective for cycling teams or groups. Since the Garmin Connect online community was created, cyclists have uploaded billions of miles of ride data. It’s time to put that data to good use with Trendline popularity routing technology. When Edge 1030 generates a ride for you, it finds the best route — choosing from the roads (and trails) most traveled by your fellow cyclists. Or, use the improved and revamped Course Creator in Garmin Connect to generate additional bike-friendly routes based on popularity data. Garmin is your guide, whether you like to ride on the road or off. While you ride, get information about elevation data, see points of interest and search for addresses. Round-trip routing will even generate a route for you. Simply tell Edge 1030 a distance and a starting direction, and it will give you a choice of up to 3 routes. And, of course, it’s smart enough to guide you back to the route if you deviate from it. When you’re planning long rides, you can count on your Edge 1030. It gets up to 20 hours of power, and with the new Garmin Charge integrated battery pack, you can keep your Edge running as long as you do.Edge 1030 keeps you connected in other ways, too. Respond to missed phone calls or texts with prewritten messages4 such as “be home soon.” Give your friends and family — even your fellow riders — peace of mind by letting them follow your rides in real time with LiveTrack and GroupTrack. Take advantage of automatic uploads to Garmin Connect, download free apps and widgets from the Connect IQ™ store, and even connect to Wi-Fi® for easy device software updates.Garmin and Strava are bringing you even more ways to test your limits. You’ll still get alerts for segment starts and finishes and be able to virtually compete against your own PR and Strava friends with a redesigned second-by-second comparison that shows how you measure up.
