Danielwrote a review of Garmin Edge 1000 Bundle Bike Computer on May 26, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got this computer primarily for routing on long rides. Setup is annoying but once you are following a course it is great to have on a ride. My routes typically include unfamiliar gravel road with unmarked turns so keeping a close eye on a map is essential. The Garmin does all the work for you.
With simple training and route recording this is a great option with a lot of features. However for my type of riding I find the computer fairly unintuitive with lots of menus and button presses to navigate. Getting routes onto the device my plugging it in is straightforward but paring with Bluetooth and using Garmin's apps is something I still haven't completely figured out.
Lastly battery life could be a lot better. They improved this on the new 1030 but this gets pretty low after an 8 hour ride.
