Looking for the cheapest Edge 1000?
Garmin Edge 1000 (Head unit only)
Here are the best prices we can find right now, for the Garmin Edge 1000 (Head unit only). This version does NOT include the performance monitoring (heart rate / cadence) equipment.
Garmin Edge 1000 Performance Bundle
This is the package that includes the heart rate monitor, and the cadence monitoring equipment. Easy to fit, and very useful to help your training.
One could argue that it would be a bit daft to own an Edge 1000 and not use the additional monitoring benefits.

The Garmin Edge 1000 is the flagship model for Bike GPS, incorporating some great new functions that you just won’t get on any other bicycle GPS unit.
As well as the large 3″ colour touch screen offering full visual mapping and detailed navigation options, the Edge 1000 can sync with your smartphone and display incoming alerts regarding calls or text messages from loved ones.
Garmin Connect have developed their own version of Strava’s segments, but the crucial difference is that the segment database is accessible live in real time via the Edge 1000.
Previous versions of the Edge bike GPS only came with a basemap, which needed to be upgraded (although you can do that free in most cases with a free OSM map). The Edge 1000 now comes pre-loaded with a quality map covering some 34 countries.
Round-trip routing is another new feature. Tell the Edge 1000 how far you want to ride and it will calculate three routes for you to choose from.
It even comes with an out-front mount (you used to have to buy one yourself at extra cost for the older models.)
Here’s what some Edge 1000 owners have to say about it:
“The best cycle computer out there”
I have updated from the Edge 810 and had the 800 before that. The extra features like message notification and bigger screen makes it easier to read.
“Great piece of kit”
This is a pretty amazing machine. It measures heart, cadence, speed effortlessly and has a pretty good sat nav. It is extremely easy to use, needing only very simple instructions.
