Garmin’s Latest Free Update Is a Big Win for E-Bike Users

Garmin is finally embracing e-bikes, as an update to its Garmin Edge 1040 series of cycling computers offers “full e-bike support” – including new metrics.

If you own a bike capable of connecting to the Edge 1040 with ANT or ANT+ wireless connectivity, as many of the best e-bikes can do, you will be able to view custom data unique to e-bikes. For example, when you upload a course to Garmin Connect for viewing on the Edge, the cycling computer not only shows your planned route of travel – as it would on a conventional bike if you’re using a connected e-bike – but the Edge does too. will tell you if your bike has enough battery to accompany you along the way.
