Garmin Edge 1040 Solar GPS Bike Computer

5 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

The Garmin Edge 1040 Solar is powered by the sun and packed with everything under it. It’s Garmin's first GPS bike computer with solar charging and multi-band GNSS technology, so you can ride longer and get even better coverage under dense tree cover or the urban canyon.

The Edge 1040 Solar bike computer also has performance features that help you understand your strengths and weaknesses. 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 setup is simple, so you can take it out of the box and be out riding in no time.

  • Advanced GPS bike computer combines superior navigation, planning and performance tracking, cycling awareness and smart connectivity
  • The Power Glass solar charging lens extends battery life, giving you up to 100 hours in battery saver mode or up to 45 hours in demanding use cases; during daytime rides, it adds up to 42 minutes per hour in battery saver mode and up to 20 minutes per hour in demanding use cases
  • Find your way in the most challenging environments with multi-band GNSS technology that provides enhanced positioning accuracy
  • Simplified setup and a streamlined interface 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
  • Classify your strengths as a cyclist, and compare your cycling ability to the demands of a specific course, so you can focus your training and improvement in the right areas
  • Manage your efforts with the power guide feature, which recommends power targets throughout a course
  • Get stamina feature insights while you ride, so you can keep an eye on how much longer you can really push it
  • Stay on top of your training program with prompts to complete missed workouts
  • Ride like a local, whatever your bike type, with improved ride type-specific maps that highlight popular roads and trails plus searchable points of interest
  • Connect with your favourite smart-device apps and platforms, including Strava, Komoot, TrainingPeaks and many more

Our Verdict

You want to ride longer, explore further, connect easier and leave your limits in the dust. Get the premium GPS bike computer with solar charging that can take you all the way.
