Real time data, full time training: Garmin's Edge 1000 helps you connect, compare, and compete. Wireless connectivity via Bluetooth and ANT+ gives you access to on-ride competitions through Garmin Connect, Smart Notifications from your phone, and real-time segment and leaderboard updates. This module is also pre-loaded with Garmin's Cycle Map, complete with routable road and bike path data, elevation, points of interest, and address search. Mapping data is stored onboard the Edge 1000, so feel free to explore outside of cell coverage. The Edge 1000 features the same quality and specs you've come to expect from Garmin: a three-inch, high-resolution touchscreen, complete cycle computer functionality, GPS mapping and tracking, Virtual partner, and Advanced Workouts for customized, goal-oriented training. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery has up to 15 hours of life, and the Edge 1000 comes with traditional and out-front handlebar mounts.

Used the Garmin Edge 500 for years and enjoyed it, even the social / sharing bits, but I couldn't decide whether to upgrade to the Edge 510 or the Edge 810, so I finessed the whole question and got the Edge 1000. I wanted a bigger screen and the dual GPS. The dual GPs is nice, but the large screen is wonderful for my aging eyeballs. Much easier to set up than the Edge 500 in general, and the touch screen works great. Held back one star because the manual looks complete but isn't, and the Bluetooth interface with the iPhone for texts and incoming calls isn't ready for prime time. This is almost certainly a software issue, so I'm guessing it will be worked out eventually. For riding metrics, though, there are so many nice little touches. I'm really glad I got it.
