You send in the road: Along with challenges in the route and functions of connection, Edge 1000 offers advanced navigation and functions of specific maps for bicycle. The pre-installed Garmin Cycle Map includes OSM (Open Street Map) content with roads and paths for cycling where you can set routes, elevation data, points of interest and address search. Map data is stored on the Edge, so your access to navigation and performance features does not depend on mobile phone coverage, and map updates are free.
You will know where to go: Now you can explore more, both on the road and off road, thanks to the round trip function of this device. Just enter the distance you want to travel, and Edge 1000 will calculate up to 3 routes suitable for cycling. You can even examine elevation profiles before deciding on one. In addition, it offers a new route planner function with which you can create routes directly on the Edge 1000 using the map, points of interest and segments you have downloaded from Garmin Connect. As before, you can check the elevation profile of your custom route before shooting. If you deviate from the journey or want to finish the tour first, Edge can guide you back to the start or calculate the most direct route and give you turn-by-turn directions to take you back.
At your fingertips: Edge 1000 incorporates a high-resolution 3-inch color touch screen with dual orientation. It has an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen according to the lighting conditions to improve visibility. Unlike a smartphone, the screen is optimized for use with gloves and in the rain³. You can customize your training pages with up to 10 data fields and use activity profiles to allow easy transitions from one activity to another, such as road, mountain or crossing.
Advanced performance analysis: Edge 1000 is compatible with ANT + ™ sensors, including speed, cadence, heart rate and compatible scale. It is the first Garmin bicycle computer that integrates with Shimano Di24 electronic change systems to display the current gear on the screen. Edge 1000 is also compatible with ANT + power meters, including Vector®, our exclusive power meter for pedals that measures total power, the balance between the power of the right and left leg and the cadence. Thanks to a pre-installed training session in Edge 1000, you can calculate your threshold functional power (FTP), which you can use as a reference for your power training zones. The 1000 offers a training schedule and is compatible with advanced training sessions that you can plan,
Connectivity with smartphone:Once linked with your smartphone and the Garmin Connect ™ Mobile application, Edge 1000 offers a set of connection features, including real-time tracking, incoming call and text message alerts, sharing on social networks, time, uploads wireless and sending and receiving journeys and segments. Once you complete the tour, it is possible to send the data automatically to Garmin Connect via Bluetooth® or Wi-Fi®. This allows you to stay connected and instantly share the details of your journey with friends, family and social network contacts. The LiveTrack feature allows your friends and family to follow your careers and training activities in real time. Invite your followers through email or social networks, so they can see live data on a Garmin Connect tracking page. When they receive the invitation by email, they can click to follow you and see your statistics and location on the map.
