The Garmin Edge 1000 is a feature-loaded bike GPS with many unique capabilities and a touchscreen interface that’s simple to operate while on the move. It’s compatible with ANT+ sensors and syncs with your smartphone for features like live GPS tracking, notifications and automatic data upload. Its unmatched functionality won it our Editor’s Pick for Best Bike GPS.
Pros: The Edge 1000 offers advanced features, including turn-by-turn navigation with Garmin Cycle Map software, which provides on- and off-road navigation. Through your smartphone, Live Track shows your location in real time for anyone tracking your progress in a race or keeping an eye on your location for safety. A well-designed operating system with home screen icons gives the Edge 1000 a familiar, smartphone-like feel.
Cons: This Garmin GPS’s price is likely enough for many people to pass on this model. And this is one of the larger bike computers we reviewed at 4oz. and 4in. length.
Bottom Line: The Garmin Edge 1000 has more features and higher functionality than any other bike GPS we tested, making it the best GPS unit for avid cyclists.
Best for: Cyclists looking for a feature-loaded GPS who are not concerned with having the lightest or smallest model
