Garmin has updated their largest Edge GPS cycling computer head unit. More of an advanced generation than an evolution of the dominant large interface unit, the Edge 1040 has improved hardware, new cycling training and performance tools, incredible GPS accuracy, the long desired USB-C interface, new aluminum alloy quarter-turn mount, some of the best mapping and routing options available in the GPS cycling head unit market. Garmin also added a truly simplified setup and a streamlined interface to make it quick and easy to access the information, courses and tools you need, and even adjust data fields right from the Edge device or from your paired smartphone. With most of the features technical or training oriented, we have listed all below. Garmin is known for an overwhelming amount of capability and features, which give cyclists the opportunity to tap into a variety of tools that offer them the most guidance and information. It is true that no one uses them all, but you can find virtually all you may need to improve and maximize your cycling ability and overall fitness.

Never stop cycling with Edge® 1040. It’s their first GPS bike computer with multi-band GNSS technology for even better coverage under dense tree cover, on remote mountain trails and even in the urban canyon. It’s also packed with performance features that help you understand your strengths and weaknesses to coach you through any challenge. When paired with your compatible sensors, it can even help you manage your efforts by providing power targets throughout a course and stamina feature insights, so you know how much gas is left in the tank. And the smartphone-based setup option is simple, so you can take it out of the box and be out riding in no time. As with previous Edge units the Connect and Connect IQ apps are your gateways to overall monitoring data and interface accessories, respectively.
