Not sure how you upload an image. I have pic of Halfords price match. Please don't vote cold if you think this is an expensive computer. This is the best deal around for the best gps computer around
incredible price. just bought the bundle at halfords who price matched
Nice price, i lucked out this week and landed a new bundle off eBay for £175

10% British Cycling membership discount too.

10% British Cycling membership discount too.



Can someone tell me how I get the quidco and 10% British cycling discount. Do they honour discount with price match too. Thanks for help.
4% quidco in store cash back with registered card. Not sure how you get 6% also in Halfords terms and conditions it say this: 'No other promotional offers or vouchers can be used on top of a price match'. Would that rule out British cycling discount?
Genuine question - Not sure what the benefit of going for the older Edge 1000 model is over the more recently announced Edge 520 which is about £50 cheaper on Amazon. I've done a check on DCRainmaker.com and the differences appear to be minor. As the Edge 1000 is now 2 years old Garmin will likely be replacing it soon as they tend to work on a 2 year cycle so it's possible you're buying old tech which may be superseded this year. (not that it's necessarily a problem).

If it's any help here's the comparison of the two:

Primarily, lack of WIFI, touch screen and turn-by-turn navigation (i.e find me a route to oxford circus), it will do routing but this needs to be staged on the device using an export from a third party service and uploaded to the device.

Really it comes down to your use case and routing needs. Otherwise check the Mio range, some nice features for a lesser price.

​Depends what you use it for.
Breadcrumb trail isn't ideal for navigating in major cities.

No maps on the 520. Nor touchscreen
very tempting indeed! Been wanting to upgrade from my 500 for a while now, this is by far the best price i have seen it!

That's inaccurate, there is a map and there's also the usual capability of using a third party map. As above, it just lacks turn by turn but it will overlay a route line over the map if you upload a cue file from a third party app and obviously plot you on that line - it just won't correct you if you come off of it.

It's accurate. Out of the box the 520 has no maps. You can loads a few tiles using a method not supported by Garmin, but only a small area. There is no SD card slot so you can't load more. There is no turn by turn and no sat nav like feature where you can navigate to a point. The 1000 does all that and comes with full Europe maps and an SD card slot for you to load your own maps if you want. Garmin update the maps for free in the 1000
Thanks for the post. No stock in any of my locals so ordered from these online.

Been looking for ages as my neighbour has one and they're great. Gone for the bundle option.

Nope.

The routing side of things we agree on as you've basically repeated what I'd stated. The mapping stuff we don't agree on, DCrainmaker also disagrees with you.

It has a (simple) map preloaded out of the box.

You can upload your own OS maps, and yes you can only do a few hundred miles given memory constraints, but it's there.

Did Halfords charge delivery? It appears to be £6.99 delivery to the UK when you add it to the basket on the Canyon site.
If anybody has any luck getting them to honour British Cycling discount on top of the pricematch can you please update us.

I would side with those suggesting the 520. I bought mine for £219 with HRM/Speed+Cadence. Put on maps of all the regions I cycle. Fantastic bit of kit & used by quite a few pros...
I got Wiggle to price match Rose Cycles for this at £360 so good price if you can get Halfords to match.

It was in store click and collect. They just look at the price. Didn't bother about the delivery charge of competition

I'm a big follower of dc. I know his thoughts on this. For me, it's not a solution. Manual, requires pc, no auto updating, limited area so you can't go too far or easily take your bike elsewhere without lots of work. The Garmin base maps on the 520 are worse than useless, trust me I tried them on the 810. Also, proper navigation is a god send when you get dropped in the middle of nowhere

Let us know how you get. I'll do the same if they honour it.
Shall do.
As suggested by previous posters the Edge 1000 is IMO a significantly better device, particularly if used for navigation. The 1000 has detailed maps installed wheras the base map on the 520 is only main roads - in my area the only roads the base map includes are motorways and 1 or 2 other main roads - you really can't use the base map for navigation. You can add maps to the 520 which can be used to overlay courses on and you can then use course points using a suitable mapping tool but all in all this is somewhat of a tedious workaround and just doesn't work as well as the Edge 1000. The 520 also has limited memory (& no expansion slot) - you should be able to install a map tile big enough for a days ride but if you are doing multi day rides forget it.

The 1000 also has buttons plus a touch screen - its personal preference but i prefer the touch screen - the 520 only has buttons and in my opinion its not as easy as the swipe between screens on the 1000. The screen is also bigger on the 1000 which makes it a lot easier to see for navigation.

Its horses for courses though - if you don't want navigation then the 520 is a great little device.

I have rather a collection of bike GPS !

Personally I stick the 520 on if I'm riding locally and just want a gps recording device to display basic in ride data. If i'm navigating a day ride or somewhere i'm not familiar with i upload a course to the 1000 from Garmin connect and take that out with me.

I'd be amazed if you get away with asking for a price match and then getting the 10% british cycling discount on top but good luck if you do.
Just for clarity, I've been reading owner reports and with the 520 you can effectively load most of the UK to memory.
I spoke to Halfords via email and they've confirmed they cannot apply further discount to a pricematch. Has anybody found this not to be the case? Halfords price will be £277.

I've since found a 1000 Performance Bundle for £304, so once I flog the sensors I don't need will be £240ish for the device itself, 3% cashback and £18 of points

I got them to price match and then brit cycle discount, will obviously depend on how stupid the staff are ( so a reasonable chance).
