This seems like a pretty good deal considering the base unit alone was here from Amazon for £279.99 last month. Don't think I've ever seem the bundle at this price before.

FREE Next Day Delivery on orders over £40

Reserved at my local Halfords going to collect tomorrow!

*** Same price at Cycle Republic below if it easier for some***

Very good price
Good deal I reckon. With the new firmware loaded the 1000 is an extremely stable unit - does everything you could need really.
Oh and TCB available on Halford click and collect, along with British cycling 10% discount if you're a member...

Cheers for the feedback Hotrod2, do you have any experience with this unit?, I've read a few mixed reviews about it freezing up etc... hopefully this stuff should be ironed out by now!

Had the 1000 for almost 3 years now. Used to suffer with freezing, lockups and poor battery life but in last 6 months or so the it has been faultless. I'm putting the improvements down to firmware upgrades over time.

Excellent, that sounds good looking forward to trying it out myself, I've never owned a cycle computer before so hopefully its worth it - looking at the weather for this weekend it will most likely be on the trainer first though
Ironically I've lost my garmin gps

Same here. Never have problems with it now. Great piece of kit.

Had mine for 3 years too, but it's been nothing but reliable, no freezing / lockups and has always had fantastic battery life (the key to good battery is all in the settings).
When I was a lad you just cycled until you're legs were fxxked and them you knew you'd done enough. By the time youve coughed up for all the gear you've lost all the weight you needed to.before getting in the damn thing.because you can't afford to eat after buying all this. All the gear-no idea.

Yes... Let's mock people for doing something healthy they they enjoy as a hobby.

Why do you care what people spend their money on?

Some people buy cars, some play computer games, some go to the gym... All could be seen as a waste of money to someone.

Had it for 3 plus years. No issues worth complaining about. But be aware that the stated battery life is halved if using turn by turn routing.

So roughly how long do you get while using the turn by turn option? Does this have similar looking software now to the 520 & 820 with live segments etc. I am thinking that after 3 yrs there would be a better version out by now but the 1030 has many issues apparently and us about £200 more. I know there are a lot of options for around the £100-150 mark that do the majority of what this garmin does but the turn by turn sat nav style of this puts it at the top of the tree from the ones I've seen.
I used this last year to cycle all the way across France and it worked perfectly. Once the settings were tweaked I could get about 8-10 hours using turn by turn navigation. I was in the saddle for up to 12 hours a day so I took a 5,000mAh portable USB charger with me which had enough juice for about 3 full charges.

Were your legs too fxxked to attend school?

I get 7-8 hours from a full charge with maps running.
I've got a 520 plus an HR and cadence sensor (I find the latter useless though), I've always fancied an Edge 1000 though and this is so tempting. I'm not sure it's worth it though as the 520 is well featured and while it doesn't have the turn by turn navigation, I've done long rides following the route on screen and that's been ok.

Has anyone upgraded from a smaller unit to this one and found it worth doing?

I have the 520 and use mapping on mine, updated it via DCRainmaker site : dcrainmaker.com/201…tml

I then create route on bikehike.co.uk, add coursepoints for turns, etc and upload to device. Works well, doesn't re-route you though if a road is closed, etc though..

Used it yesterday for a cycle near Loch Lomond on roads i hadn't cycled before.
£300?! Could buy a whole bike for that!

Yep, at least 8 hours (longest ride I’ve done).
This can be bought for 20% off on their ebay store for £240 until 6pm:
