Go straight to our review

 

Design and technical features

Here are 4 bike GPSs that look similar in terms of looks and technical features (except for the more sober entry-level model) but whose price ranges from a single to triple (from around €200 for the Edge 130 Plus to nearly €600 for the Edge 1030 Plus).

We're dealing with some nice, thin, rectangular meters to place on a bike rack provided by Garmin. 3 models offer a color screen. The Edge 830 and Edge 1030 Plus screens are touch-sensitive. Other differences are size, weight, battery life and some components.

The Edge 1030 Plus differs from the other 2 models by its significantly larger screen and higher resolution. It is perfect for people who want to be able to read the map comfortably or who have a slightly poor eyesight. On the other hand, it is significantly heavier: 124 g as opposed to about 80 g for the 2 other models just below and 33 g for the Edge 130 Plus (lighter than most cardio watches!).

The smaller Edge 530 and Edge 830 are identical in screen size and resolution. With Edge 1030 Plus, they benefit from a processor that is twice as fast as the previous models (520, 820, 1030), a high-sensitivity GPS chip and a higher quality and higher sensitivity screen (convenient when wearing gloves or in the rain).

Garmin Edge 130 Plus versus 530 versus 830 versus 1030 Plus: comparison of key features

Autonomy: correct except for the entry-level model

Autonomy is an important parameter for cyclists who take long rides or for multi-day cycle tours. It is only 12 hours on the Edge 130 Plus, which is a bit low depending on the use, especially since this value is a maximum conditioned by a modest use of the meter (use of a single satellite network, no connectivity to a Smartphone, modest user interactions, no external sensors). There is also no power saving mode and no possibility to connect an external battery during the output.

On the 3 other meters, the announced autonomy is 20 h (Edge 530 and Edge 830) and 24 h (Edge 1030 Plus), which is already excellent. If you want more, you can activate the "energy saving" mode, a degraded mode that allows you to extend the autonomy by 50% or even 100%. The degraded mode consists in deactivating the screen during the output and recording less data from the sensors (GPS in particular). The accuracy of the recording is therefore reduced.

Garmin Charge battery on its mount
Garmin Charge is an external battery compatible with 3 of the models presented in this comparison. It connects under the Edge mount and doubles its autonomy.

For longer battery life with no data loss, Garmin offers Garmin Charge&trade, a sealed external battery that plugs into the Edge bracket. This solution doubles the autonomy. However, it is not available on the Edge 130 Plus.

The sensors: a barometric altimeter and an accurate GPS

In terms of sensors, there are very few differences between the 4 models. All are equipped with a GPS chip compatible with the main satellite networks (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo), a barometric altimeter for altitude and height difference measurements and an accelerometer. These instruments are also used (except on the Edge 130 Plus) to evaluate temperature and altitude acclimatization and to adjust the VO2max calculation. The accelerometer is used for the detection of incidents (fall, shock) and ATV dynamics.

The 4 GPS meters are compatible with most external sensors and offer the protocols ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart. You will be able to connect a heart rate monitor, speed, cadence and power sensors but also control a home trainer (soon on the Edge 130 Plus) or connect Varia products, or even order a Shimano Di2 derailleur, a VIRB camera, some electric bikes. Note that the Edge 130 Plus does not exploit all the data from the power sensor. It only takes into account the pedalling power.

Cartography and navigation: the Edge 830 and 1030 Plus most complete

The Edge 130 Plus is a little different since it does not include mapping. It displays the GPS track and records it for playback on a map on the smartphone or PC after the trip. It allows you to load a route and follow it with turn-by-turn guidance, as long as you've created the route from Garmin Connect. The route can be prepared on Garmin Connect, where you can benefit from the most popular routes in the Garmin community (heat maps), or on a third-party platform.

Edge 530, Edge 830 and Edge 1030 Plus have a full-color Garmin Cycle Map. The map shows the driving routes of the country or continent of purchase (Europe if you purchase the unit in France) and popular routes (routes used by members of the Garmin community). Navigation features allow you to follow a route previously loaded into the GPS meter from the Garmin Connect interface. The device shows the direction to follow and warns of dangerous turns. Voice guidance can be activated (instructions are stored in memory with the map) to be guided by voice, just like in-car GPS.

TrailForks maps with blue, red, black tracks
TrailForks data integrated in the maps allow to select an ATV track according to its difficulty.

On-board mapping includes the Trailforks data, i.e. nearly 300,000 MTB tracks in more than 120 countries, as well as their level of difficulty. These models also incorporate Trailforks functions to help ATV riders in their outing (evaluation of the difficulty of the trail, indication of the position and next intersections when taking a break, evaluation of the fluidity of a descent).

The 4 counters include ClimbPro , an ascent manager. The climbers will love it! This function displays the altitude profile of the route, indicates the percentage of average slope, the remaining difference in altitude to be climbed, the distance to the summit. The profile is divided into coloured sections according to difficulty. The cyclist can thus easily analyse the difficulty of the slope and manage his effort accordingly. This is a really valuable aid to help him to dose his efforts in an optimal way.

In terms of navigation, Edge 830 and Edge 1030 Plus offer 2 advantages over Edge 530 :

  • Navigation to an address or POI ("Point Of Interest") : The Edge works here like a car GPS. It calculates the best route to an address entered by the user or to a point of interest in the vicinity (hotel, restaurant, train station, etc.).
  • Round-trip route generator: the Edge can propose round trips from the position of the cyclist, a direction and a distance.

Finally, the Edge 1030 Plus benefits from a richer cartography. Thanks to its 32 GB memory, it carries maps of Europe, Africa and the USA (for a device purchased in Europe). It also benefits from some additional functions (improved return to the start, re-calculation of route in case of exit of the programmed circuit).

Training tools

Power and training status screen

Drive tools are limited on the Edge 130 Plus and rather complete on the other meters.

Edge 130 Plus is limited to estimating calories burned, MTB Dynamics and MTB metrics, advanced workout programming, Training Effect score, power monitoring (but only power developed. Other sensor data is not used), recovery time, VO2max estimation (requires the use of a power sensor and a cardio belt).

The 3 other counters offer more measurements and tools for the sportsman, such as cycling dynamics, estimation of heat and altitude acclimatization, estimation of VO2max corrected for altitude and temperature. There are also food and hydration alerts: the device evaluates energy needs according to terrain, effort, temperature and invites you to refuel when needed. The GPS also tracks actual food and hydration (you must tell the GPS when you eat and drink) and indicates whether they have been sufficient.

Edge 1030 Plus features suggested daily workouts, a handy tool for people looking for tips on how to train based on their current fitness level.

Security, support and connected functions

All 4 devices support smartphone notifications. They have the LiveTrack function to be followed on the Internet by friends, are able to detect falls or shocks and send automatically (or on demand) an SOS message to a predefined emergency number by communicating the GPS position. Of course, all these functions require a smartphone connected nearby.

The 3 top of the range models also have the possibility to communicate with other cyclists with the GroupTrack function (requires a Smartphone connected nearby). They are equipped with a bike alarm that can be activated with a code and which rings and emits an alert on a Smartphone if the bike is moved. They embark the function "Find my Edge" which makes it possible to find its Edge in the event of loss following a fall (the device emits a GPS signal allowing a Smartphone to locate it). You can also share data between 2 Edge.

Our opinion: Edge 130 Plus, Edge 530, Edge 830 or Edge 1030 Plus: which one to choose?

front view of Edge 1030

Apart from the Edge 130 Plus, which represents excellent value for money in terms of on-board functions (essential for cyclists and mountain bikers), the 3 other bike and mountain bike GPS meters presented in this comparison are among the best on the market today. All 3 of them include colour mapping of the roads and cycle paths in Europe (or the country or continent of purchase) and allow you to follow a programmed route with re-calculation of the itinerary in case of a deviation from the initial route. Edge 1030 Plus even includes maps of other continents. In theory, you can never get lost. The functions for training and performance analysis are very comprehensive. Autonomy is excellent. So you won't make a mistake when you buy one of these devices.

Now, which of the 4 to buy, knowing that their prices range from around €200 for Edge 130 Plus to around €600, or triple, for Edge 1030 Plus. Should you go for the most expensive device, if you have the budget?

The main differences between the 4 models

The Edge 130 Plus is an interesting computer for beginners, occasional cyclists who don't want to invest too much in a computer or regular cyclists who don't need mapping or advanced functions for sports training. It offers the essentials for the cyclist (bike, mountain bike, gravel bike), route tracking, mountain bike dynamics and metrics, ClimbPro and advanced training programming.

For more advanced use, for performance or cycling, it's best to look at other models that have mapping, including mountain bike trails, and more advanced sports features.

Edge 530 and Edge 830 are almost identical. It's the touch screen, navigation to a given address or POI and the round trip generator that make the difference. If you're looking for a touch screen or if the extra navigation features are important to you, choose Edge 830. Apart from that, Edge 530 is just as complete and costs €100 less.

The interest of the Edge 1030 Plus is its large format screen (and touch screen), a slightly longer battery life and twice as much memory (for card storage). On the other hand, its large format makes it more fragile for ATV outings and it's heavier.

Edge 130 Plus: for value for money and a compact, lightweight meter

route tracking screen

Edge 130 Plus is perfect for people who don't need mapping or advanced sports features. It's compact, ultralight, rugged, and offers everything a cyclist needs to ride, as long as you know where you're going or have a preloaded route to follow.

Edge 530, 830 and 1030 Plus: ideal for ATVs

If you're looking for a GPS meter for ATV, choose the Edge 530, 830 or 1030 Plus ATV package. These models offer Trailforks data (nearly 300,000 ATV tracks and their difficulty in more than 120 countries) and a few additional metrics to better inform you about your ride and help you progress. Note: the old Edge 1030 model does not include this data.

Edge 830 and Edge 1030 Plus: to choose for the touch screen

If you're looking for a device with a touch screen, the Edge 830 or Edge 1030 Plus is the one to buy. Garmin is constantly improving the quality of its touchscreens. They work in the rain and can even be used with cycling gloves. Note that Edge 830 and Edge 1030 Plus have fewer buttons than Edge 530, as control is via the touch screen. If you're not sure you want to use the touch screen all the time, it's best to opt for Edge 530 (without touch screen).

Edge 830 and Edge 1030 Plus: perfect for finding your way or discovering new routes

Slope profile display

If you're looking for a bicycle GPS that works like a car GPS, calculating the best route from an address or point of interest, then choose Edge 830 or Edge 1030 Plus. Looking for a place to eat, a hotel to stay overnight, a train station? Ask the GPS to find the POIs around you and let it take you there.

With Edge 530, you'll need to record the course you want to take before the start or via your connected smartphone (course programmed on the Garmin interface or popular course). You'll also be able to navigate to a specific address by positioning a cursor on the map. However, you will not be able to have Edge drive you to a manually entered address or point of interest.

Another advantage of Edge 830 and Edge 1030 Plus is that they are able to offer round trips from your position and up to a maximum distance you decide. This feature is useful when you're cycling away from home, on holiday for example, and don't know where to go. The Edge will offer you loops.

Edge 1030 Plus: for its large, easy-to-read display, slightly longer battery life and memory

The main advantage of the Edge 1030 Plus is to offer a very wide screen (about 60% more surface area than the 2 models below in the range) and a better resolution (282 x 470 px versus 246 x 322 px). This GPS is perfect for people with poor eyesight or who are looking for a screen that is comfortable to read. Study this setting carefully before you buy your GPS.

The disadvantage of Edge 1030 Plus is that it is heavier (45g heavier than Edge 830) and more bulky. It is less suitable for mountain biking because of the risk of falling.

slope profile and power display on a wide screen

Our preference: Edge 830: the good compromise

The entry-level Edge 130 Plus is a good choice for its price, comprehensive features, ease of use and light weight.

Our favourite model so far is the Edge 830, which is ultra-complete, with its touch screen (as long as you like touch screens), its GPS that works like a car GPS, its route planner, a relatively comfortable screen (bigger than the previous model, the Edge 820) and a price that remains reasonable (around €300). It's an excellent compromise and a very good value for money. It has recent and powerful components (high-sensitivity GPS, quality and sensitive screen even with gloves or in the rain, processor twice as fast as on the Edge 820).

If your budget is tight, Edge 530 offers virtually the same features for $100 less but without the touch screen. It's our second choice. Be careful, you won't benefit from the round trip generator, among other things.

Edge 1030 Plus is the best GPS meter of the 4 in terms of features. It's for its screen (and at the very least its longer battery life) that you should choose it, preferably for use on a bike rather than a mountain bike (more risk of breakage in case of a fall).

In order to help you in your choice, we propose you the summary table below.
