Few brands are as synonymous in cycling tech as Garmin. As you would expect, from their top-of-the-range model, the Edge 1030 Plus is crammed with the most up to date technology and features. With its crisp touchscreen display, long battery life, and superb navigation, this cycling computer is as equally suited to long bikepacking adventures, as it is training and racing in all weather.
Before we delve into the device itself, its most striking feature is the physical size of it. Boasting an 89mm touchscreen display and weighing 124g, the Edge 1030 Plus is certainly a cycling computer that stands out. The benefit of the screen’s size is that it’s easy to read in varying levels of light and is responsive to swipes, even in winter gloves. So whether you’re training before the sun rises or touring on the brightest summer days, you’ll easily be able to flick between data screens and maps.
The screen’s size allows you to clearly display up to ten data fields per page and detailed maps, without the need to squint. With access to Garmin’s Connect IQ app store, there’s seemingly endless options for customizable screens. Whether you’re a minimalist or data junky, you’ll be able to tailor your screens to suit your particular need.
Big Package, Big Tech
As you would expect, from the largest and most expensive computer in the Garmin range, the Edge 1030 Plus is chocked full of tech. It is — of course — Bluetooth and ANT+ compatible, so you can pair your device with heartrate monitors, power meters, turbo trainers, and electronic groupsets. Additionally, this top-tier model also offers WiFi connectivity; making it seamless to sync your routes and rides from the computer (and vice versa).
Garmin have incorporated a number of safety features into this model. Paired with your phone, you can allow your riding buddies and loved ones to track your progress live. With Incident Detection enabled — should the worst happen — the device can automatically send your location to a designated person. You can also receive text and call notifications on the go, so you needn’t miss a message from home.
Through the navigation software, you can also receive alerts for approaching hazards, such as steep descents or particularly sharp turns.
From a navigation perspective, this powerful device offers detailed maps, turn-by-turn navigation, off-course calculations, and auto-route creation. All of these features combined, make it ideal for exploring new roads and trails.
When using navigation you’ll have access to Garmin’s ClimbPro feature. This handily displays live information on any hill you happen to be on, including the length, gradient, and — crucially — how much longer there is to the top! You’ll also be able to see when the next hill is approaching and how many remain.
Data All Day Long
Importantly, for a device intended for adventures, the Edge 1030 Plus offers 24-hours of ride time when fully charged. Attach Garmin’s Charge powerpack and it’ll go 48-hours between charges. All this means it’s suitable for bikepacking and any long distance riding.

Garmin Edge 1030 lots of plus!
Excellent navigation and maps, more than enough to play with. Only bits of feedback would be, as my eyesight isn’t what it once was, bigger directional arrows would help those of us with poorer eyesight and when a ride is paused. Also, if your slightly off route in a cafe, please stop bleeping away trying to re route! Also, can’t get it working with Ride with GPS app for routes. Rest us fab, still trying out the many features.
This was an upgrade from my first Garmin bike computer Great product and does everything it’s supposed to It’s an expensive piece of kit but vital to efficiency in recording and mapping cycling routes Nice clear visibility from screen and easy to connect
The perfect computer friend
Not had the garmin long, but it was essentially an upgrade from my trusty polar m460 cycling computer. I haven’t used half it’s functions yet ( there are many) but key things to me are big screen so all your stats are clear, easy to set up, works well with my existing Polar HR chest strap & cadence, The touch screen works like a smart phone even with gloves on, & for those interested in training plans etc you have lots of choices to monitor your fitness. Most of my routes have been local so far, but looking forward to using mapping function & saving the route for the next time. It’s syncs to the garmin connect app where you can view all your ride stats & needless to say it syncs seamlessly to Strava. Some people might actually be put off by it’s big screen, but trust me once you’ve had your initial ride you will not want to go back.
