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.

Awesome Bike Computer

I previously used the 530, and upgraded to the 1040. It is a great bike computer. I love the bigger display and the amount of data it provides. The touch screen with the ability to swipe and touch as opposed to button navigation of the smaller 530 is helpful while riding, particularly when on my mountain bike. I'm still exploring all of the features. The only challenge I have has been to discover how to use all of these features, which are many.

Great added features!

Finding extra features on my new 1040 to give me more insight to my training and my attempt to bring my body back to pre-incident days. I don't recommend getting hit by a car, but I do recommend this computer.

Works well sometimes

After using for one week it seems to lose contact with the cadence sensor during the ride. I put a new battery in the sensor but it didn't help. Two times it wouldn't power off which I guess is a known problem. If you want to live with these problems buy one otherwise buy a Wahoo at half the price.

Graphic Are Beautiful

I upgraded from the Garmin 1030 which was a reliable unit. The 1st thing I noticed was the clarity of the screen and the improved graphics. My aging eyes love it. I've only used my 1040 solar on two rides currently. Looking forward to using all it features.

Best Edge

I was reluctant to Bunyan 1040 because of the size, but went for it. The bigger screen is actually the best feature. So much easier to see with just a glance. I also really like the workout function.

I love Garmin.

Just upgraded my 1030 and am very happy with the new features and speed of the processor. The ability to customize these units is astonishing. Linked to varia radar, power meters, headlights, and heart rate monitors, there is nothing you can’t monitor or do. Training goals are easy to understand and reach. Especially when linked to other Garmin products like a fitness watch or in my case a Descent. Amazing!
