Garmin Edge 1030 - useful features during cycling

Split long course

Garmin got bug when the Course is longer than 180 KM as my experiences, and it caused self reboot during recalculating. So I have to split the course into smaller segments, and this is also improve the loading time. Anyway, Garmin Edge isn't a fast computer.

Change Course during cycling

In order to load the next Course into Edge without stopping the activity, the following steps can be used

  • Touch the screen
  • Tap on Home icon
  • Tap on Navigation
  • Tap on Courses
  • Tap on the Course to load
  • Return to Home page
  • Tap on the round activity icon on top of screen to back to activity screen if needed

Pause/Resume activity

If the activity is on, the power button will lock the touch screen. Otherwise, will off the screen.

To Pause activity for lunch

  • Press start/stop button
  • Press power button to off the screen

Resume activity

  • Press power button
  • Press start/stop button

Merge activities

If the activity was stopped and saved, then the only way I know to merge with previous activity is using following online tool, but some useful information will be lost too, such as activity type, category, calories, etc.
