I do not think this is designed for racers in mind. Although it is large, since it is thinner, it might be not bad aero wise.

Maps are useless, but when you get old like me and do not have enough time to study the group training ride on Saturdays, it is nice to turn when you are suppose to turn [esp when you are at the front]. This only works when the course is downloaded.

As a customer service business owner, it is nice to have some type of information on who is texting/calling on one screen. I hate not knowing if it is important or not. Those good customers allow me to buy all this expensive stuff.

Using a phone is just as large and not worth the monthly expense. Strava and all those other sites do nothing to support my ego.

I still like all that data including the gear selection, nice to know where you are at without looking behind you. Since I have SR EPS, that does little to help me, but it's nice to know it is out there.

Better GPS seems to be a plus and less add on's is always a good think [additional sensors].

Don't know if it is worth it for me, but I can see it being made for others. If/when my 800 dies, I would seriously look into it. Sucks that I would have to update my Tillquist mounts.

It is incredible fun to everyone finds the Edge 1000 is a big-bike computer. In fact, the only 3mm longer than the old Edge 705

Thanks for pointing that out. I'm pretty content with my 705's size.

I hope you realize your iPhone is a tad bigger than a Nokia 3310? For exactly the same reason.... namely to display data bigger screen is nicer.

Seriously, everyone here understands why for some people a biger screen is better, but because it does not fit their personal usecase it's all of a sudden a "failure". And Tillquists post shows just how completely silly the remarks are, as the device is hardly bigger than a 705. :lol:

In the photos it looks very big. Even the 810 is too big I find. My iPhone is big I wouldn't want something that size stuck on my stuck. Personal preference of course. Soon they'll be mounting iMacs on the stem! :D

I think several of us are saying for the size of the screen its big that it would have been a much sleeker product if the case was a lot smaller. At least its thinner. It just looks like Garmin is behind on design capabilities compared to what the cell phone manufacturers are able to do. Maybe it has to do with protection of the unit but compared to the 800 the case just looks proportionally bigger. Well I will stop my complaining as my 800 does all it needs to do.

As far as I remember, 705 is from 2008.
Remember your 2008 model cellphones and now...

I believe, they could at least put a bigger screen on the same size.

The size and weight of the 1000 is ludicrous for such a device in 2014, especially considering the price. Garmin hasn't really innovated due to the lack of direct competitors in the marketplace. New Garmin models should be lighter than previous versions, not the other way around. Considering all the hardware talent in the bay area it would be awesome to see Strava come out with a head unit. Obviously it would be a pretty big undertaking, but it could be a nice additional revenue stream.

Holy smokes. Just take a 18 gm poo before you ride and you will be 2 gm ahead.

I'm a noob to the hip cycling scene even though I've ridden for years I just didn't care too much about keeping up with the Jones's. That being said you probably have me pegged as a minimalist and that's true to a point. I love the idea of cycling computers for training and mapping rides, having someone in real time scoping you out on the PC, all that stuff is pretty cool. But do we really want these things shifting our bikes too? What's next autonomous steering to pick the perfect line and have real time pot hole updates, common! Cycling to me is my refuge where I can unplug and do my thing. Anyways if you guys are all into that I guess that's cool. Oh well back on topic I was really waiting to hear more griping about the weight gain of the Garmin 1000.

I do not think it will shift your bike[yet]. It does show the location of the gears. Campy did it awhile ago on there ErgoBrain. If you think it is not worth it, you have never ridden a tandem. If was great having to look down and see where you were at.
