My Garmin worked fine in the US, but it can't find its location on earth when it is away from North America. Garmin should advertise that their devices are region specific and should not be taken to Europe or Asia. I tried to reset it, and now it can't even find my phone an the Connect app to be useful as a head unit for my indoor trainer. If if were slightly heavier, I might be able to give it two stars as a very blingy paperweight, but I cannot even recommend it for that function. One of these days I will learn that the Garmin Ecosystem is really more of a jungle designed to entangle you without providing the functionality they promise. I need to find a bike computer that actually includes GPS, unlike the Garmin. Any suggestions. I wanted to connect to Strava, but I have learned that this device does not support connection to Strava. I checked with Strava, and sure enough: the Edge 1030 cannot do segments on Strava: https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/articles/223361887-Strava-Live-Segments-Compatible-Devices. I wish I had known before I bought one.
