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.

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!

Device good, documentation weak

The bike computer seems terrific with a bazillion features and capabilities. Figuring out how to use them is difficult. The manual is just a checklist of screen menus. Some documentation or training videos showing how to use the device for typical use cases would go a long way tp helping customers get the most put of their purchase.

Amazing Bike Computer

This is the Top of the Line Solar Powered bike computer on the market. If you are going to get it this, look no further. Very detailed information. It will last forever!

It’s a solid product with many features

While do enjoy this product I would like to see it work with my rowing more seamlessly. Tying directly to Hydrow and working in coordination with the my Garmin watch would be great.

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!

Not possible!

Garmin wants a review already, I have only two weeks of use so far. Wait Garmin!, I will get back to you in due time.

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.
