Bike computer with Komoot style maps

Is there a bike computer which has komoot style maps? I really don't like having my phone mounted on my bike when I'm out mountain biking but the komoot maps are absolutely brilliant. My friend lent me his Garmin Edge 530 to try out and I much prefer having that mounted, really like all the stats it gives out but the maps are useless for mountain biking. It only really shows roads whereas komoot has offroad tracks, footpaths, even shows you where there's gates and stairs etc.

I have not tried to ride using a phone with Komoot maps, when I am using Komoot, it is on my computer.

Some GPS units can be loaded with multiple base maps that you can switch. On my GPS I have installed automotive base maps, Open Streets cycling maps, topographic maps, etc. I choose which is working best for me depending on activity and where I am.

Arn't Koomot maps OpenStreetMaps? If yes, you can upload OpenStreetMaps to the Edge if it does not already have them. I know I can see tracks on my Edge 1030 with OpenStreetMaps.

The newer Garmins come with TrailForks, which is especially for mountain biking. I think this works like a layer on top of the regular maps (which are based on Openstreetmaps).

You can install the komoot app on Garmin, there are the hiking, cycling and MTB maps, you can use them offline etc. And it looks practically like on the mobile/web komoot.

On Edge 530 you should update to the latest beta firmware, there were some fixes, the maps will look better.

You can simply use the komoot Garmin Connect iQ app on your Garmin and you get the komoot styled maps on your Garmin. You will also be able to update the route while navigation is running.
