Cycling Weekly Verdict

Without a doubt, the Garmin 1030 is a significantly improved when compared to Garmin's previous touchscreen computer, the Edge 820. The screen is more reactive to touches and far stable in the rain. It's also less laggy, and the bigger screen coupled with the new dashboard layout gives a welcome level of clarity to the screen. The setting up process is also significantly improve, thanks to the new layout and software features. The software isn't perfect but this is fixable with updates. All in all, it's a well improved piece of kit, even if it is massive.
