Top-shelf Garmin.

Building from the platform of the 810, Garmin's new Edge 1000 Bike Computer now includes a larger high-resolution touchscreen display, as well as many communication technologies such as Bluetooth 4.0, incoming call and text notification, and WiFi. And for those running electronic drivetrains, the 1000 is compatible with Shimano's Di2 drivetrains with Shimano's D-Fly Data Management function. Oh, and the bike-specific navigation and mapping capabilities, instant uploads to social media, and live tracking features you've come to know and love on the 810 are all wrapped in to this system, too.

For the new screen, Garmin placed its primary focus on making it larger than the 810, both in terms of height and width, as well as simplifying screen and metrics navigation. The initial start screen prompts you to select the CPU's functionality for your ride, either "train" or "race." To avoid confusion, training mode is presented in Blue, whereas race mode is presented in Red. Additionally, this screen enables you to select the bike profile that you'll be riding — mountain, road, and cyclocross. Once these selections have been made, you simply touch the ride button, and the screen moves to your race or training page. And of course, this page is customizable for every bike profile in your quiver. So, your ride page will only reflect the data that you deem pertinent to your ride or race. And like with the 810, you simply swipe the touchscreen from page to page. Also, Garmin designed the screen to operate seamlessly with gloved hands in the cold, in the heat, or even in wet weather.

The new 1000 now supports gearing information directly from Shimano's Di2 drivetrains. It does this by communicating with Shimano's D-Fly Data Management function, which transmits gearing and battery level data directly to the unit. The 1000 also includes a Bluetooth 4.0 chipset. So, while sport device communication is still handled by ANT+ (say, wireless data transfer from HRMs or power meters), the Bluetooth technology communicates with your smartphone. The previous models feature Bluetooth chipsets, but the 4.0 version supports Bluetooth Smart Sensors. And to make matters even easier, the 1000 is fluent in either Android or iOS operating systems. It's worth noting, however, that the new call and text alerts feature is only iOS-compatible at this time.

So, once you're synced up with your phone, and you've downloaded the Garmin Connect Mobile App, the 1000 really comes alive. Essentially, the 1000 receives data from your smartphone, like live weather and activity upload. This means that you're able to receive real-time weather conditions, forecasts, and alerts while your phone stays protected. And for activity upload, this hastens the data transfer once you've finished your ride. From any location, this feature allows you to wirelessly upload your ride data to your smartphone, which then uploads it to your Garmin Connect profile online. Accordingly, you can view your profile from the Mobile App, almost eliminating the need to access Garmin Connect from a home computer.

With the 1000's Live Tracking feature, you have the ability to share your activities in real-time through either email or the social media of your choosing. All that you have to do is invite your coach, friends, or family to follow you on Garmin Connect, and then you're able to send email notifications reminding them to follow your real-time activity, stats, data, and location while you're on the bike. You also have the option to share this information via Facebook or Twitter. And with either the Mobile App or Garmin Connect, you have the ability to peruse rides in your area. Once you find one to your liking, simply select the ride, and then the route is uploaded to the unit with full GPS navigation capabilities. And whether you're on a designated route, or simply going wherever the road takes you, the map feature permits you to view the area in either topographical or detailed street views. No more getting lost.

The 1000 accepts microSD data cards, and it's capable of storing up to 200 waypoints on its onboard history. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery has a life that extends to around 15 hours. Garmin also ensured that the CPU is completely waterproof, and it's also compatible with virtually any ANT+ equipped device. So, mating the 1000 to an HRM or power meter will be a simple process.

The Garmin Edge 1000 Bike Computer is available in the color Black and includes a bike mount, micro-USB cable, and a user manual.

No Problems

None of the issues others have mentioned. Have put many miles on it now. I ride a small frame due to my height, and it is not obtrusive to me at all

No Problems

Garmin Edge 1000 Disappoints!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have owned two of these devices. Every other ride the unit will malfunction by not displaying properly, not recording the ride correctly or not recording the ride at all. Both units are the same. Would recommend only as a paperweight!

Awesome, just too large

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really liked the product. The features were phenominal and it worked well. However it's MASSIVE. I am also undecided about the touch screen technology. To be honest I think i'm going with a Srm Pc8 next.

Tons of functions, but it is LARGE!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used the 1000 on 5 or 6 rides. The functions are simple and set up was relatively easy. The mapping function and automatic Strava connectivity is pretty cool as well. My one complaint is that its huge. In order to have a highly readable map, the display needs to be big I guess. Its as big as my smart phone. I just don't like the way it dominates my view on my handlebars. But its worth it if you want the excellent mapping capabilities.

Works Great!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I researched the different Garmin Edge cycling computer options heavily before I finally ordered the 1000, and I was slightly hesitant due to a lot of negative user reviews. But I'm happy to report my Edge 1000 seems to do everything it is supposed to do, and does it well. I've had no problems connecting to any of the sensors or my Quark power meter. After a ride my data uploads automatically to Garmin Connect through my iPhone, usually before I've taken my helmet off. Even the text notifications work, a feature I must admit I thought was not a big deal, but the first time I got the notifications my honest response was "Wow -- thats handy!" :)

Expect to spend some time with the device when you first get it. Like any computer or electronic device there is a learning curve and the sheer volume of all the functions and options can be daunting. But if you spend some time watching the velogps videos on you tube and/or the owner's manual, you will be rewarded with a nicely functioning device. I'm very happy with it.

Extremely Disappointed But...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bugs galore.

1). Blue Tooth connectivity is spotty at best. I use this for transferring courses and live tracking so the family know where I am for the rare occasion that I have major mechanical issues. Thought I'd try out the text and call feature, but connectivity with the bluetooth feature makes this impossible.

2). Random screen locking, only way I can resolve this is to turn the unit off. Very annoying.

3). Software update included an update to setting up blue tooth connections, didn't see one bit of improvement.

However... After hours of playing with the unit and learning it quirks... Routed a new course based on a recent back roads drive I did with the family on a day trip, managed a blue tooth transfer (yes it's possible, but makes you grow grey hair in the process). The maps were wonderful, MUCH easier to see on the screen, auto dimming, crystal clear screen, easier to swipe between screens and the auto navigation was much more spot on then my 810. But even though these features were good, they weren't necessarily the main reasons why I bought the unit. Usually In don't use maps, the bluetooth transfer was why I bought the 810, was hoping this would be a step up... not so much.

I'll give 2 stars, because some features are a great improvement, but the bugs... I can only give 2 stars.

Hope this review was helpful to potential buyers. Good unit, but beware the bugs. I'm hopeful that Garmin releases new software updates soon to address bluetooth. If not, I'll be returning mine within the 90 day return period. :(

Thanks for the review. I currently use the 500 and was looking to upgrade. Seems like the 810 is the more reliable unit.

Buggy, but some fantastic features

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

DISCLOSURE - I could not get it to sync with my iPhone but could not care less about the phone features.

I bought for 2 reasons - my 800 has many poor features and needed an upgrade, and I want to be able to see the screen without reading glasses. Seemed senseless to spend $600 on the incremental upgrade of the 810 and still need reading glasses.

So I mostly love the 1000. The slightly larger, noticeably clearer screen is a huge huge huge plus for me. I will not list features but many are great and are extremely useful. GPS + Glonass burns through battery life but extremely accurate. Build quality seems high. Even just on GPS it did not lose satellite in heavy woods as my 800 often did. It did seem to burn through battery pretty fast just on GPS so if you have 12 hour epics in mind that could be a big problem.

And candidly, I am happy with Garmin having released a BETA version I can use all summer and then hopefully have software updates resolve issues rather than working out all the glitches and not releasing until September.

I bought the Garmin Edge 1000 to replace edge 810. Edge 1000 is loaded with bugs & has Bluetooth issues to which it looses connection with your phone. So if your planning to use live track be warned. Also it locks & becomes unusable for a few seconds. You will have to hit the power button.

I recommend not to purchase this product until garmin resolves these issues. Check their forums for all the threads with issues.

Does this include the bar "out in front"...

Does this include the bar "out in front" style mount, or is that only included in the $699.99 bundled version?

Yes, the out-front style mount is included in this package.

Typical early release from Garmin

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The 1000 has about an 8 hour battery life per charge. Terrible. It also is incredibly buggy. The screen freezes and says it is locked when it isn't. Low battery notice has come on yet the battery is displaying 75% power available. I had to try over 7 times to have it Blue tooth connect to my cell phone. Finally after turning the unit off and on it finally worked. I don't believe it is a defective unit either because I have two and the other one was doing the locked screen problem on my ride this. morning. Garmin support has been USELESS.

Does this include the maps micro card? If not can I use the one in my garmin800?

Maps are built in but you can use additional data cards.

Am currently using the Edge 500 including its cadence and speed sensors. Will the Edge 1000 pick up signals from those sensors, or do I need to acquire the new generation cadence/speed sensors that are in the Edge 1000 bundle? Thanks.

This Unit will still use the same Ant+ sensors of the past models of garmins so the speed/ cadence will work fine.
