Summary: The Garmin 1000 is easily the worst bike GPS Garmin has released to date. It doesn't fit existing out front mounts. You will need new ones to retrofit onto your bikes. But most importantly...it doesn't have a bike odometer. Seriously. You cannot create profiles for your bike and keep track of mileages. Every single Garmin product before this has had this feature. Every bike GPS in the world has this feature. Garmin why did you remove this???
Works as advertised. Plenty of bands and molded "bits" ...

Summary: Works as advertised. Plenty of bands and molded "bits" provided to get it to sit somewhere on your handlebars. I've been able to arrange mine under my right thumb so I don't need to take my hands off at vital moments to change screen view. Programmable to suit your every wish on the Edge 1000 where I use it.
Summary: I know to wait on things from Garmin. I bought their Vector Power meter right out of the gate and had many issues with it until they totally replaced it. Now it's great. So I knew to wait on this until this fixed the kinks. Well they got it right, I waited 6 months to get it, and mine works awesome! I haven't had a single issue with mine, totally LOVE Garmin products. They totally stand behind what they sell, and that's worth a LOT!!!!
Summary: I am very pleased with the Edge 1000, keep finding more things to love! Went on my first night ride with it, and was pleased to find the screen in "night" mode. Current weather, wind speed! Wow! When you sync with your computer, the temperature is displayed also. When you are done with a ride, the info is automatically downloaded to my iPhone.
The question above was very appropriate! I think and apology is nescessary.

Summary: I own 2 Garmin 800s and 1 Garmin 1000. The response to the question above was impertinent and unnecessary. If this response was from a Garmin representative, I will NEVER order another Garmin product and I will return the speed and cadence sensor I bought my wife for Christmas. People have every right to ask a question like that and the response was belittling and mean spirited!!! And I did not ask the question!
