BIG step up from my Edge 500

I got this for long rides. I generally follow pre-planned courses, so I can't comment on how well it would navigate you back home or to some other destination.

Here's my experience, after several hundred miles worth of long rides.

The good Touch screen works fine, and is nicely visible in daylight without the backlight. Screens are nicely configurable - you only get two but that's enough for me. Works with my phone to allow my spouse to follow my progress, shows me text messages and provides some canned quick replies. Pairs up with my older ANT speed and heart sensor. Hasn't ever locked up or needed a re-start to keep it working. (Longest continuous ride so far was 7 hours.)

Battery life seems to be as advertised, 12 hours. After a 7 hour daylight ride last weekend with the Garmin on all the time it's battery meter showed 50%. (Also, the phone app doesn't use much power. I think I still had about 80% on that.) Leaving it on the map uses the battery faster, so I leave it on a data screen (with distance to next turn at the top). I can swipe left and see the cue sheet, or swipe right and see the map and again for upcoming elevation, but I usually just leave it on the data screen and when a turn approaches it switches to the map by itself. Nice.

I have the crash notification set to email only me for testing it, so that I don't scare my family with a false alarm. So far I haven't crashed, and it hasn't triggered, despite some pretty severe rattling over a wooden bridge and such. Maybe I'll put in my family's info now.

The annoying Every now and then it feels the need to warn you about an upcoming sharp turn. Maybe useful on a motorcycle, but totally not needed on a bike, IMO. You might disagree. One ride it got confused - maybe an issue with the course file? - and warned about sharp turns repeatedly on a straight stretch of road. That was really annoying!. But mostly it's been flawless, and only warned when there actually was a sort-of-sharp turn coming, like once in the last 100 mile ride. I wish I could turn off that type of warning, like I think you can do on the 1030. A volume control for the beeps would be nice too.

Overall, I like it a lot! I don't need or want training and power meter features. I still use my Edge 500 for recording my commutes, and it always worked well for following routes (with the phone as a backup), but the Edge Explore is so much better.

Excellent value with some compromises

You give up a few things to get mapping at this price point. No power meter, hill grades, or temperature. Only two screens with fields. At the moment, you cannot turn off sharp bend warnings (super annoying because I do a twice weekly training ride in a park with 4 warnings per lap for 19 laps), but Garmin says it will fix that. The maps, prior ride course creation from Garmin Connect, turn guidance, and touchscreen are all great. In fact, I liked it enough that I bought another one as a gift to my wife.
