  • Ha, you might be, but solid advice. Thanks guys.

  • Bought a replacement button for my 1000 and then I'll sell it to recoup some of the cost of an 830. Don't fancy a replacement unit that is also out of warranty. Anyone want a repaired 1000?

  • Is there a quick way to delete all the saved locations off a Garmin 1030, short of a factory reset?

  • plug it in to computer, can you see a folder that might be all of the saved locations? i don't have my Garmin to hand but somewhere in the mass storage could be it.

  • The locations are saved in a fit file, delete that. in the locations folder

  • Are Garmin Edge units still limited to 100 segments on them? I read that they've put all of trailforks on there so you think synching more segments wouldnt be beyond them.

  • Spanks peeps I'll have a look.

    Anything to speed up the screen redraws on this bloody thing.

  • I used usb-otg for moving routes to my edge 810 and activities to strava (had to use the 'desktop' version of the website - not sure about the app) a few years ago on a tour. Had to be careful not to leave it plugged in though, it would charge from my phone and drain it pretty quickly.

  • Make sure you have only one map active at a time helps speed up redraw.

  • I normally only have UK active but I may've left some others enabled during last year's racing. Let me have a look at that too.

  • Enabled: Base, Garmin Cycle Map NE, Garmin DEM map, Garmin Geocode map EU, Garmin cycle map EU SW

    All my OSM ones are disabled.

    Any idea which of the ones above I should actually enabled for UK?

  • IIRC you only need the Garmin Cycle Map NE functional for the UK.

    If you need address search on the map you need geocode enabled.

    The DEM is elevation data, up to you if you enable it or not.
