Garmin Edge 1000 GPS Computer Performance Bundle
Garmin have launched the phenomenal Edge 1000 Performance Bundle. The most powerful, advanced GPS unit the American navigational specialists have ever produced. New and exciting features are abundant on the 1000: a larger, better quality screen; thinner, taller and sleeker in design; quicker connectivity with Wifi and Bluetooth 4.0; an intuitive linking function that can be used with Shimano Di2 groupsets. Mapping is now simpler and clearer to follow, with the rider RoutePlanner function allowing you to create a route directly from the device and even create round trip loops. Staying in touch is the Garmin's party piece with incoming call and text message notifications and a more accurate and precise accelerometer speed and cadence sensors. This is not a replacement for the Garmin 810; it is more a revolution in the cycle computer and GPS world.
New speed and cadence sensors
The Garmin Edge 1000 Computer Performance Bundle comprises of new and improved speed and cadence sensors. Using state of the art accelerometers to measure cadence and distance.
Speed is now recorded through a neat, easy to install and very accurate sensor, which attaches neatly to the hub.
Cadence is provided with a discrete crank arm mounted sensor that accurately counts the rotations, providing up to the second data straight to the Edge 1000 head unit.
Taking features from other Garmin products, the 1000 employs their easy to use and accurate Garmin Touring Mapping software. This is in addition to the advanced RoutePlanner feature, allowing you to input a set distance and then leave it in the hands of Garmin to provide three routes for your chosen distance. You can even specify if you want a hilly or flat route, perfect for a truly personalised ride.
The Garmin Edge 1000 is not just a bike computer; it is also a training partner, allowing you to follow Garmin Segment Real-Time Challenges a new and exciting feature that will link directly to Garminâs Connect website. On screen PRs and Training Calendar Support makes this device into your own personal coach, providing pedal-by-pedal assistance.
Viewing and accessing information on a Garmin has never been simpler, with then possibility of viewing up to 10 data fields at any one time. In addition 5 custom pages have been added and that's not even taking account of the lap summary, compass and map pages. You will never complain about not being able to see you vital statistics and ride information again!
Garmin have made the Edge 1000 one of the most linkable and versatile GPS devices on the market. A pioneering Shimano Di2 link allows you to view gearing information and vital battery life whilst out on a ride. Uploading rides and charging has never been easier, as Garmin has used a Micro_USB card, like a mobile phone, which replaces the Mini-USB found on previous Garmin models.
Wifi uploading is simple, quick and eliminates the need for wires. Simply send across to your iOS, Android device or laptop and get sharing your ride with your cycling friends. Safety is a key consideration with every cycling product, none more so than with the Garmin Edge 1000. LiveTrack built in technology allows friends and family to keep track of where you are.
As cyclists, knowing what the weather is looking like is always incredibly important. LiveTrack downloads up to the minute weather reports straight to the device, allowing you to decide whether to extend your ride or turn back and miss the rain!
The Garmin Edge 1000 uses the same MicroSD card found on the other Edge devices but unlike the rest, it has a built in Garmin Cycle Map for Europe, with both on and off road mapping. Garmin Express support will provide updates periodically, meaning you will always stay up to date with the latest developments.
In addition to the MicroSD card the Garmin Edge 1000 now holds a massive 8GB of memory, vastly larger than other Garmin devices, ideal for storing numerous workouts and routes.
Accuracy has never been more precise than with the Garmin 1000. Using GPS GLONASS, never again will you lose satellite signal under the cover of trees. The satellite reading is faster than ever before downloading data ahead of time and providing up to the second recording.
