I've been looking at cycle computers for a while. Halfords are having a sale on several cycle products including other garmin computers. I've took the plunge and thought I'd give y… Read more

Make sure you set the backlight to auto or off. I'd turn off wifi and you can also turn off GLONAS under gps settings.

I've got one of these, the battery life is terrible

Bought this on the £110 Amazon deal. If you are looking for turn by turn navigation, you might want to look for a higher spec model as this is quite basic for that.

Also no power meter support if that's important to anyone.

2 points of note for the Garmin Edge Explore ; No Live Strava segments and no Garmin Virtual Partner. Both I find useful when cycling so now have the Edge 1000 (previously had Edge 130, then 520).

The free subscription was only available for 24 hrs - I missed it quote response from email Our free for lifetime was only available on the 27th of July.

Looks like the offers expired - no lifetime option here either, after completing my details.

Looks like a good app and a shame the free subscription seems to have gone as it’s limited to 1 Bluetooth device. Will probably use with my power meter pedals and combine with heart rate data post-ride until I get an Edge

No lifetime option showing for me.

The option was inside that panel - sorry for those that missed it

Cheapest it's ever been on Amazon. Seems a good price for this at the minute and from Amazon. Think a new one arriving soon as price keeps dropping lately.

Yes, the rerouting on the 530 with the latest software is still bad, it will always try and get you back to the closest place where you left, rather than the closest way to get back on the route overall. That said, if I have to deviate for some reason then I do usually want to look at the map and pick an alternative, since the shortest alternative may not be a road I want to ride on. 99% of the time the Edge is fantastic though. For anybody who does road cycling in suburban/rural areas I'd thoroughly recommend a Varia sensor too - it's a game-changer in safety/reassurance.

Jason_Axe

Agree. I came across a road closure in the middle of a long ride. I found my own route before it had stopped telling me to do a u turn.

Samurailovin

love mine. Only issue I have is if you go off-course, the edge just tells you to U turn and return back to the course rather than updating as you go.

DRRINK

I had the older version it got me in a world of trouble once, I found if you missed a turning the rerouting was terrible! that was the last time I used it. I was hoping this was improved and you could draw out a route On the map?? not a difficult task considering the price of these

Gareth79

You can run navigation on the device, and I'm sure theoretically drop a pin on the map to make a route, but it would be very cumbersome and impossible to figure out whether the route it has suggested is sensible. As mentioned the Garmin Connect website with route planning is pretty good, and you can sync straight to the device and know the route is 100% perfect. You can route on the phone too, but I'm not sure how easy tweaking the route would be. The default routing does things like jumping on and off cycle paths, taking you the cycle route around a roundabout (no appropriate for road/confident cyclists), and for example you might want to take a footbridge over a river and need to manually adjust the route to force through - all very easy on the desktop website.

Quite, looks like they've gone!

Gripper1963

Doesn't seem to be available at this price now. Tried to add it on my Amazon Prime account but it wouldn't load to basket. Went back in on this link and now price is from £171.28.

According to quick Google search yes https://www8.garmin.com/manuals/webhelp/edge130/EN-US/GUID-22D3D4E2-30ED-4D0D-BB20-9697F25FF1DE.html But if wants mostly for navigation might want look at explorer £40 etc better map and inflight correction. Although to be honest I've not got grasp of navigation on explorer and prefer osmand on my phone for navigation

AndrewKay

Can you download routes to the device? Or does it have to be through a phone? My dad wants a GPS but refuses to buy a smartphone, so he'd need to be able to download a route from the computer onto the device :/

CharlieBravo

Excellent, glad it was useful! I'd imagine they've a load on the way, with it being a Prime Day deal, so they may well ship earlier than anticipated :D

bit late to the party on this, this came saturday - first ride out and not really sure about these... see my Strava screenshot - pedalling at 192 cadence? this was cycling uphill, up a rough gravel track - contacted Coospa already, offer of partial refund and they forward deets to their technical people apparently.

I have nothing personal invested in this post. I am, however, concerned at the sheer amount of negativity from some people who comment and spend an inordinate amount of time trying to rubbish things, for very little purpose. Any post regarding cycling equipment, especially, is immediately rubbished by a small minority. Are they paid to do this, I don't know. If you look at their previous activities, they rarely post anything positive, but have an opinion on everything.

bxboards

Ah! Lots of people seem to like the free 20p detergent SuperSaverMe sample, where folks are literally giving away private details, that is over 2k heat. You shouldn't be so personally attached to a deal, or be so defensive. The problem is, your argument is basically that you don't know or care about accuracy, which is fine, it's your money. But several Amazon reviews have also called out accuracy, and someone else on this thread also commented about random high spikes. This site should never become a mutual back patting exercise, which it seems you want it to be.

deleted501475

I tend to not spend too much time researching or testing cadence sensors. I'll leave that to others, with more time. Lots of hukd users seem to like this one, judging by the heat added, so I'll carry on using it.

bxboards

For this price or close to, you CAN get accuracy though. Recording accurate pedal rotation doesn't require 'aerospace' accuracy. Magene S3+ with 15% off today (often can be had for £16.99 with another £3 off voucher) this is pricier than usual https://www.amazon.co.uk/Magene-Cadence-Cycling-Bluetooth-Wireless/dp/B087PDPNMF and this was down to £10.99 for a few days https://www.amazon.co.uk/CYCPLUS-Cycling-Bluetooth-Magnetless-Waterproof/dp/B085VTC3YQ This is a pretty average price for a below average product - sorry! You can spend similar money and get accuracy - so why wouldn't you?

Suspect for battery reasons no brighter than most cars with headlights on 24/7

wfb

Exactly this. It’s greatly enhanced my rides.

fergee

It is great at letting you know there is a car behind you, but the light output and battery life does not compare to a £30 ish moon nebula rear light. The only time I think it is any use is when cycling with a buddy, you can be 2 abreast and then quickly drop to single file way before you can hear the car......and before anyone starts I know you are allowed to cycle 2 abreast.

demansquith

totally agree ,great bit of kit....the my opinion the people who diss this product are the people who dont like paying for safety

demansquith

I have the Radar and its a great bit of kit, expensive i admit and it tells you how many cars are behind you which is a great feature. it works with my garin edge and also i have a wahoo bolt and it works with that as well. the bike computer beeps and clearly tells you how many cars are behind you and how far they are. i have used bar mirrors which are cheap and effective ,but in my opinion the radar is a great bit of kit.
