  • New multi-band satellite technology gives you the best GPS reception, even when cycling in dense forest areas or in the busy city.

  • Despite its good readability, the Edge 1040 is rather large for a bike computer.

Description

Description

With the Garmin Edge 1040 Solar Bike Navigation, you can explore the world as well as your own limits on your road, mountain or gravel bike. The large 3.5" colour touchscreen is easy to read in all circumstances and is highly responsive thanks to the renewed processor. With a max battery life of 45 hours and turn-by-turn navigation, you will never get lost again, no matter where you go! But if you want to make a detour and discover some new roads while riding a preplanned route - no problem, the Edge navigates you back to the original route whenever you want. Because of the integration with Strava, Komoot, Trailforks and more, a world of unknown routes and trails awaits you. Furthermore, the Edge 1040 Solar can create a route based on popular and frequently cycled routes, or a random route based on a specific distance entered by you.

In addition to navigating you from A to B flawlessly, the Edge 1040 Solar is the best training partner you could wish for. All the data you need during training or competition is displayed in real time on the customisable data panels. Training sessions and workouts can be synced to your Edge 1040 Solar from Garmin Connect or via TrainingsPeaks. The Edge also offers daily training suggestions based on your training load and personal VO2 max. The Garmin ClimbPro function helps you to distribute your energy perfectly during a climb, and MTB Dynamics gives you insight into your flow and jumps while riding the trails. Do you sometimes forget to eat and drink during your ride? The Garmin Edge 1040 Solar gives you notifications during your activity to ensure that you're well fed and hydrated at all times.

Navigation
The pre-installed cycling maps ensure that the navigation always works and that you will never take a wrong turn again. Turn-by-turn navigation provides clear directions on your route, and even gives you a warning if there's an unexpectedly sharp turn ahead. What a great safety feature! You can let the Garmin calculate a route itself, or easily upload existing .gpx routes via the Garmin Connect app.

Extra long battery life
No need to worry about battery life. With an increased battery life of 45 hours, you can go on a great many rides before having to recharge your Garmin Edge 1040 Solar. 45 hours is not enough for you? The optional Garmin Charge Power Pack can be used to charge the Edge 1040 Solar wirelessly when you're on the go.

Technology

Easy setup
Instead of wasting time configuring settings, you'll be ready to go in just a few minutes with this Garmin Edge. Besides loading pre-stored personalised ride profiles from your previous Edge, you will also be able to transfer ride types, sensors and the most popular setups from existing users.

Battery life
The Edge 1040 Solar has a battery life of 45 hours with demanding usage, and up to 100 hours in economy mode. It can also be charged during your ride by the solar panel in the display. Charging via Solar power provides up to 42 minutes of battery life per hour for daytime driving. Still not enough? Then check out the Garmin Charge™ Power Pack.

Synchronise your training plans
Get your indoor and outdoor training plans from Garmin Connect or seamlessly sync with your Edge from other apps including TrainingPeaks and TrainerRoad.

Multi-Band GNSS
The new Multi-Band GNSS means dense vegetation or tall buildings are no match for the Garmin Edge 1040 Solar.

Monitoring all your performance
Get a better understanding of how your body responds to exercise. Track your VO2 max, recovery time, training load, training stress and more.

Daily training suggestions
Training guidance that takes you and your fitness level into account. Get daily recommendations based on your current training load and VO2 max.

ClimbPro
Automatically see the remaining incline and fall when you climb while following a route or course. This gauges your effort and shows you how much you have left to do.

MTB Dynamics
Keep track of the epic details of every ride with new mountain bike stats such as number of jumps, jump distance and airtime. Measure the difficulty of a ride or how smoothly you descend with Grit and Flow stats.

Garmin cycling maps
Ride with preloaded maps with wider coverage than ever before. The maps provide information on altitudes and places of interest with the ability to search for addresses.

Route recalculation
Feel free to pause route guidance and notifications to explore different paths and roads during a route. Want to get back to your set route? Garmin will take you there seamlessly.

Planning a tour
Create a round trip directly on your Edge computer in the Garmin Connect app or plan it on other platforms such as Strava and Komote. They'll then sync automatically with your Edge bike computer.

Garmin Heatmap - popular routes
With billions of miles of ride data uploaded by cyclists, Edge 1040 Solar can choose the best and most scenic route for you.

Super device for the bikepacker as well as the most avid rider who wants to see all the details.

- Remco 15 September 2023

Got this in preparation for a road trip to Rome (2200Km+) What could be better than the 1040 solar, Big screen, europe on it completely, and solar because you may not be able to charge everywhere. So the extra hours you can charge on the road are ideal. Especially if you get to points or somewhere you quickly charge your phone, your lights and/or your bike computer. Strava routes can be loaded with ease and are picked up perfectly. I tested this with some small local routes and it works perfectly. Transferring the sensors also went smoothly. As far as I'm concerned, the ideal device for the next few years.
