I have always turned my Garmin Edge 1030 off after a ride to save battery. No need really, with the 1030, but I used to have a Garmin Edge 520 so every second counted
If the Garmin Edge 1030 goes to sleep will it get the workout? Is it totally asleep or does it connect to wifi every now and again. Is Garmin pushing to the device or is the device checking in?
