During my 6 months with a 1030 I have lived through a lot of firmware bugs that Garmin has fixed, unfixed, and fixed again.

He could very well have killed me had I landed on my head. If he had crossed my in a supermarket and thought I was taking too much space in the alley, would he have pulled a gun and shot me ?. Second worse thing, I didn't think to stop my Garmin Edge, so my average speed for the ride is down 2 km/h. I had pushed hard in hills the whole ride for a good threshold workout, what a waste.
I am Impressed with this device - highly recommended
I don't usually write a review (especially of a product I like). However, I saw so many negative reviews on this site I thought potential customers would benefit from hearing my experience. I have owned this product for about 2 weeks and I purchased it as an upgrade to my Edge 810. So I can make com...

I'm getting more and more disappointed by Garmin. What's Your Opinion?
I am a happy user too, currently with Forerunner 945 and Edge 1030. I have been using Garmin since forever and I appreciate that the hardware and software does what it says on the tin and delivers consistent experience, while adding many very useful features over time.

O'rate me ducks. I walk/hike with the Fenix 6 and cycle with an Edge 1030. The Fenix has been quite reliably recording intensity minuites towards my target on my more strenuous walks but the Edge 1030, not supporting this whilst it being something that Connect *could* calculate it never has counted a good ride towards the minuites.

Garmin Edge 1030 plus - Functioning re-routing at last? -
After much ridicule for Garmin and its re-routing function, the engineers of the new Edge 1030 plus have definitely eradicated this weak point! Whereas when I was using my Edge 830 recently, I was only on the road with “real” maps as a backup and always looked at my sat nav with uncertainty, the new Edge 1030 plus gives me the usual sense of security and finally allows me to concentrate on riding again and enjoy it!.
