At times however it is absolutely infuriating. On my way to work that Satnav and performance tracking works pretty flawlessly. On the way back, it takes forever to workout where it is and start tracking my journey - meaning I either have to add 5 minutes to my journey time just to get it working right, or render its performance tracking a waste of time because it only kicks in 5 minutes into the journey. Also, its backlight is particularly poor - refusing to work properly at night, again rendering it fairly useless. The other infuriating aspect is that it can be so pedantic about where you start a loaded course that unless you are spot on to the meter, it will not guide you on the journey.
The website to which your journeys are uploaded and analysed is also very good in many respects - enabling you to track and record your rides and performance (with added data if you also buy the cadence meter and/or heart meter). The course creating software could be much better, and I've not been able to find out how to tweak courses already loaded by others, so as to create your own from them - which would be very helpful.
I would have given this a higher rating, but if you are paying more than £300 for this - I think its reasonable to expect that the performance ought to be without the infuriating aspects.
The Explores are simplified versions of the standard Edges, however I find that they have all the facilities and data I need.
The area the Explore 1000 really lets itself down is battery capacity (I would have have given 4-5 stars otherwise). I reckon it lasts about 5 hours, which is not enough for a days ride. I have bought two Poweradd Slim2 5000mAh Portable Charger Power Banks which I strap to my handle bars and connect to my Explore to recharge it as I go along. They work fine in dry conditions, but I have not yet attempted to fully protect the power pack and Garmin for wet weather.
Otherwise I use navigation on new routes. I don’t set it to find the start of the course, as if you go off course it seems to perminantly want to get you back to the start of the coarse. The nice thing is when you get back on course the course is identified again. Finally I wouldn’t use it without a map in my bag. When off course it delightfully tells you are off course, but is useless directing you back to the course.
I also use time of day, speed, av speed, battery use, gradient, cadences and distance (7 parameters) on one screen. There are a multitude of different parameters you can use according to your choice and you can set the number you wish to use on your screen. I find 7 about right to see clearly, when riding. You also have the capacity to use a second screen for more parameters. I would like to add power but the pedals needed are stupidly expensive. Additionally you can add two parameters of your choice to the navigation screen. I would say if you want more screens you’re better with a standard Edge. If you want to separate the data according to what your doing eg training and racing you would also be better with a standard Edge, as The Explore does not have this capacity.
its difficult and frustrating to use, the screen is difficult to see.
Yes, there are websites that make the planning easy but why do we need them..why didnt Garmin stay ahead of the game. Ive tried using a couple of those websites but even that is a pain, having to connect my Garmin device to the computer and download and transfer files; frustratingly labourious. And even on the websites that I did use, the downloaded routes did not provide turn by turn directions and when one strays off the original path there is no dynamic routing to get you back on to it again.
I have to be fair though..there is one, and only one area the Garmin beats the smart phone and that is the fact that it can be used with gloves on..but what use is that when it is useless in every other respect..
Dont waste your money on this as a Navigation device just buy a battery booster or solar charger for your phone.
