Can't tell much from a link. What do you think looks interesting? Or are we just supposed to tell you what looks interesting to us?

Number one way to guarantee that I won't look at a link is to just post a link.

You don't need to read the article to offer an erudite and insightful reply, so why would I need to read your post?

I don't know why your are reading my post. But evidently you do.

Your initial comment to my first comment here is about the same as my comment is to the OP.

And certainly there is nothing erudite and insightful about linking a article without including some discussion about why the OP even thought it is worthy of a thread here.

To me that more fits the description of trolling. Trolling isn't necessarily looking to making a heated discussion or encouraging bad behavior such as what happens when one doesn't ignore the less than helpful comments of others. I will have made no further comment if you hadn't lent your view only toward my comment. And since you haven't added anything to the thread for whatever it's intention is, then is your comment any different than mine?

The title is enough of an indication of what the OP believes "looks interesting".

Oddly, the title doesn't always register with people (so they can be confused by what a thread is about). So, it might actually not be a bad idea to repeat the title (or add some text) to the body of the post.

This is silly. You should be embarrased.

Back OT: does anyone doubt that there is a new Garmin cycle computer in development? I'm sure they started working on a 1050 around the same time the 1040 was released. No surprise that there is online speculation about it.

OP back, had surgery so original post was done quickly in case others were interested. Too much idle time off the bike while recuperating, so Iíve been spending lots of time on the web. Not that I need a new Edge, since the current 1040 is overkill for my needs, but always interested in the next iteration. Higher screen resolution was expected, just not sure how useful it will be. After all, spend most of my time looking at the road or trail. A larger speaker would be nice, if so.

Apologies to those who were bothered by my post.

There was nothing wrong with your post. There is nothing for you to apologize for. Sometimes, the problem is with the other person. (Calling your post “trolling” is on the crazy side.)

There’s always something new and “better” coming out. I tend to find my 1040 does everything I need, very, very well and can’t see what they could change that would make me want to buy. The 1040 had significant improvements to navigation that drove me to buying, as compared to the 1030. We will wait and see what they’ve improved on.

I wish our friend from Switzerland who predicted the 1030 would come back. That was when nobody suspected there would be a 1030. I always thought it was the first and only spam from Switzerland. Person only made one post and disappeared.

Did anyone get anything interesting from the link? My next garmin might be a 1000 series. My 830 is still meeting my needs though.

I can pay people directly to sit on their wheels?
Is this a one time or per mile charge?

Either way, sign me up!

wondering when inductive with solar charging will roll out. Also, haptic feedback for alerts, notifications & such shouldn't be too far out from getting incorporated into it. It'll be good vibes, not an annoying rattle.. I swear!

The current one already has the option of solar charging. Expensive though for something that already has a massive battery run time.

The nastiness here is removing a lot of fun from the forum. Can we try a little harder to stay on topic?

You don't need to apologize. I don't take any offense.

However when someone posts a link and doesn't really say anything about what or why they are posting it comes off as trolling to me.

And if going by the thread title, then the only appropriate answers will be a simple yes or no.

Inductive charging would be nice, my car will do it, but my phone is too cheap to have it.
But I suspect the mount would be in the way, and they probably want to keep the battery contacts. Those also seem like they would be in the way. I'm a little curious how many external batteries they have sold. They are far too expensive for my wallet when a cellphone battery and cable will do. And the battery life on the 830 has meant that I never really needed my external battery.

Could put the induction parts into the quarter turn piece, while having the ribbon for it detachable inside for potential mount replacement or just pronounce the upper backside of the headunit flush with the quarter turn mount to allow the charging pad to keep with range of the inductive piece should not be too difficult.

Iím not really seeing the use case for this. Induction charging is convenient for phones that require a lot of charging eg bedside or in car. But how hard is it to plug your bike computer into a usb charger every few days? Itís not a feature I would want to pay for anyway.

I charge my 1040 maybe once every 2-3 weeks, so the convenience of induction charging would be lost on me. Maybe for the Varia radar units which have to be cheated every few days. And I keep a chargjng system setup as I also charge 2 Di2 systems as well as a AXS system.

increases the water resistance capability, reduces plug degradation, less cord clutter... oh & it's convenient.
