Why We Like The Edge 1040 Solar GPS Bike Computer

We use the Edge 1040 Solar GPS Bike Computer to make the most of our time on two wheels—it's the only solar-charged option from Garmin, positioned right at the top of the line. Even during the most demanding usage, like GPS tracking and connectivity with other devices, the solar charging allows this computer to run for up to 45 hours straight. With more conservative usage, this model can run over 150 hours. Our favorite features include the multi-band that lets us explore far outside of cell service and the three included mounts that let us move the device from our mountain bike to our road bike with ease. The Edge 1040 also uses stamina insights and training suggestions to help dial us in for bigger efforts and race days.

Nice upgrade from Bontrager Edge1030

Great upgrade from the 1030, which was also very good. Screen information and data is presented well and brighter. The controls are more intuitive. Mapping is clearer. It's just a good bike computer.

I like this alot

This 1040 solar replaces my 1030 Edge. The graphics and navigation are significantly improved. I enjoy the extra range that the solar charging allows, although you pay for the privilege. As expected, the integration with other Garmin accessories (cadence, radar) is excellent.

Works well so far

I’ve had a chance to ride with it for a couple of weeks now. Not certain what I feel about the new UI. New fonts and colors are good. Not happy that it keeps asking me to set up Di2 buttons when they have been set up already.

Makes Navigating Self-Guided Adventures Easier

Being more of an adventure rider, I love the ability to build a route and pan and scan the map when you're unsure where the next turn is or if something blocks your way — like a washed-out road or private property. Beyond all of the expected quality features of a Garmin, having the solar to keep the battery topped up is a huge benefit for those back-to-back long days too.

Awesome Bike Computer

I previously used the 530, and upgraded to the 1040. It is a great bike computer. I love the bigger display and the amount of data it provides. The touch screen with the ability to swipe and touch as opposed to button navigation of the smaller 530 is helpful while riding, particularly when on my mountain bike. I'm still exploring all of the features. The only challenge I have has been to discover how to use all of these features, which are many.

Great added features!

Finding extra features on my new 1040 to give me more insight to my training and my attempt to bring my body back to pre-incident days. I don't recommend getting hit by a car, but I do recommend this computer.

Works well sometimes

After using for one week it seems to lose contact with the cadence sensor during the ride. I put a new battery in the sensor but it didn't help. Two times it wouldn't power off which I guess is a known problem. If you want to live with these problems buy one otherwise buy a Wahoo at half the price.
