Why We Like The Edge 1040 Solar GPS Bike Computer

We use the Edge 1040 Solar GPS Bike Computer to make the most of our time on two wheels—it's the only solar-charged option from Garmin, positioned right at the top of the line. Even during the most demanding usage, like GPS tracking and connectivity with other devices, the solar charging allows this computer to run for up to 45 hours straight. With more conservative usage, this model can run over 150 hours. Our favorite features include the multi-band that lets us explore far outside of cell service and the three included mounts that let us move the device from our mountain bike to our road bike with ease. The Edge 1040 also uses stamina insights and training suggestions to help dial us in for bigger efforts and race days.

Incredible great features with colorful display

I bought this one a few weeks back and I'm very happy I did. It has taken me to many great places around northern Boston already. It's pricy but worth every penny of it!

Incredible Metrics

After three weeks still discovering much of what this device can do. Love configuring different data screens for various metrics. Fantastic integration with Rally RK200 pedals, Varia RTL515, Varia UT800, dual HRM and speed sensor 2. Still figuring out which apps and data fields to use from ConnectIQ. Highly recommend!

Don't wait to upgrade

I upgraded from a several-year-old 1030, and boy did I wait too long. The battery life is amazing, especially in the cold (even without solar). The unit is far more responsive. The data screens and display are way better. All-around, it was money well spent to move on from the old device, especially for longer rides in poor / cold conditions.

Great battery. Issues with accessories

I love the abttery life. Love the screens and eas of use. Cons: Doesnt work with my Varia vision and according to requestS, it doesn't appear it ever will. Severely degrades the value IMO. For some reason, I cannot get it to recognize my older radar units.

Great features as with all Garmin devices.

Fast uploads of activities and quick connections to all devices. I’ve used it for a little over a month and no complaints!

Simply the best yet. Logs on devices, automatically turns on radar. LOVE when I ride that I can see the traffic approaching on the screen. . Changed my tactics to ride out into the rode, then as the radar shows an approaching vehicle ride hard right to avoid getting hit. LEAGUES better than any Garmin device so far!
