Summary: The Edge 1000 when it works is great, the problem I have had is that is only about 25% of the time. The cons are: The screen locks up and you can't re-set it. Sometimes it doesn't record my ride even though all other functions work (speed, heart rate, elevation cadence, map, etc.
Great display, great for data, and good for navigation with a little work.

Summary: Depending on what you want this for you have a better or worse experience. Overall, it has some of the typical problems of Garmin products. It crashes but if you buy a later model or wait for the software updates it crashes only very occasionally.
Summary: The added screen, profiles and very fast recording (including nearly no delay in power meter recalibration) are phenomenal. Battery might run out after 90 miles of guided, high "light" use -- not an issue with some setting tweaks.
