- who's got a Garmin 1000? Hows battery life?
Echo the above. It’s fine. I don’t try to conserve it and have never had an issue. For long rides I’ve just used a piggy back battery thingy – did that for the SDW so I could keep the navigation going and it was perfect.
Reckon you’ll get 10 if you turn off Bluetooth/brightness down and you’re not using a power meter and loads of other sensors.Posted 3 years ago
You don’t need any sort of USB OTG cable like you do with the Edge 500 if you’re using an external battery pack FWIW. I used a 2500mAh battery to do the SDW, and after 10 hours with navigation and bluetooth on, plus the backlight quite frequently it the Edge was still showing 100%.Posted 3 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
I have everything turned on and don’t try the save the battery and in any way and I still get 7 hours or so out of the battery
As above. Bluetooth on for phone connection. Wifi just stays on because I like the auto-download when I get back in. HRM in use as well. Screen is on all the time, usually on the map page.
More than enough for a day ride for me.Posted 3 years ago
