Garmin Edge 1030 In-Depth Review

After over three years, Garmin has updated its flagship GPS navigation computer with a new edition – the GARMIN EDGE1030.  This new large-screen style unit features a longer battery life along with a new external battery pack option.  Not only that, it adds in Bluetooth Smart sensor support, FirstBeat Training load metrics, Rider to Rider messaging, and more.
I’ve been riding with the unit for quite a while now and have a pretty good grasp on all these features, so much that it’s definitely in-depth review time.  Also, the unit starts shipping today (yes, really).  The question is – is the new Edge 1030 worth the price?  And more importantly, how well are all these new features implemented?  I set out to answer these questions.
As always, once I’m done with this media loaner unit I’ll send it back to the Garmin folks in Olathe, Kansas.  After which I’ll head out and get my own unit via normal retail channels.  If you found the post useful, feel free to hit up the links at the bottom – I appreciate it.
Let’s dive right into things with what’s new on the Edge 1030.  And what you’ll see is that in many cases it’s more of an evolutionary upgrade than it is a revolutionary one.  Which isn’t to say that’s bad – in fact, in many ways that’s good, as it minimizes the amount of issues you see at the outset.  In any case, in usual DCR style, bulleted list here we come:
– Totally revamped main user dashboard: This is pretty apparent from pretty much any photo you see here.
– New FirstBeat Recovery and Training Status metrics: We saw these introduced on FR935/Fenix 5 earlier this year, they mirror the same here.
– New External Battery Pack Option: You can now attach a secondary battery pack to the bottom using a locking mechanism.
– Longer battery life: Claimed at up to 20 hours internally, and then you can stack on another 24 hours with the battery pack.
– Trendline popularity routing: When creating routes, it’ll leverage all the data from Garmin Connect to find the best cycling routes across road, mountain, and gravel categories, meaning that it’s going to leverage where people actually ride.
– Support for Bluetooth Smart sensors: Like the Fenix 5 and FR935, you can now pair to Bluetooth Smart heart rate straps, speed, cadence, and power meter sensors.
– New Garmin Connect Mobile Course Creator: You’ll see improvements here in conjunction with the new Garmin Connect Mobile (GCM) that allows route creation more easily from the phone.
– New Garmin Connect Mobile Workout Creator: As part of the new GCM release, you can now create structured workouts on the phone (finally!).
– Rider to Rider Messaging: You can send/receive canned messages to other Edge 1030 users in your friends list.
– Real-time Strava Segment listings: The unit will now use your phone to show you actual Strava segments nearby as you ride along (not just pre-loaded ones), along with real-time data on those segments.
– New Strava Routes Connect IQ App (pre-loaded): This app allows you to pull your saved Strava Routes directly to your Edge 1030 (this will be released for all Edge Connect IQ compatible units).
– TrainingPeaks & Best Bike Split Connect IQ apps pre-loaded: These will automatically be on your unit to begin with.  Simple as that.
– Updated Workout Functionality: Software now lets you restart a structured workout step, such as if outside and stuck at a red light.
– Display handles rain a lot better: The display is far better than before in wet conditions.  Check out my video on this below.
– New protected microSD card slot: While it comes pre-loaded with maps, you can add more maps on microSD card and this new slot design is much more waterproof/weatherproof
– Incident Detection: This was introduced on the Edge 1000 Explore (but not regular Edge 1000, and then the Edge 820 – but it’s here now on the Edge 1030.  It’ll notify friends/family when you crash.
– New out-front mount: Places unit level with handlebars, instead of above it.
– Slightly uglier white external case design: Just my two cents.  I like the black look of the Edge 1000.
– Landscape mode is gone: It’s dead, Jim.  Nobody used it, and it Garmin cut it to focus on other product areas.
And the kicker is I’m sure I’m still missing some minor nuance items.  Things like when you pick out which data fields to add it’ll show you in tiny text the data fields in the listings you’ve already selected.  Or the new controls menu that consolidates mid-ride actions like calibration, live track, and so on.  Oh, and for lack of anywhere else to stash it – the price is $599USD.
If you want to see what all this looks like, I’ve put together a simple video that walks through the entire user interface from start to end.  It’s just one simple camera angle and me going through the menus – nuttin’ fancy.

Buyers seeking a faithful workhorse go-kart that also offers a comfortable and refined ride should look no further than BV Powersports TrailMaster 150 XRS buggy. This machine has been a staple to our go-kart lineup for many years. The 150 XRS is a tough, no-nonsense go-kart for riders who are tackling demanding trails, and who want performance and reliability that has made TrailMaster famous. Built around a stout 150cc, air-cooled, engine the chassis offers smooth full suspension with long travel and hydraulic disc brakes. Reverse? It's standard equipment too. The 150 XRS is the refinement and comfort that let you spend all day in the seat. An all-around contender in the 150cc category, the 150 XRS is extremely fun to drive and a solid choice.

Ergonomics & Safety Features
The TrailMaster 150 XRS go kart is the best built 150 cc buggy on the market. This offroad go-kart is designed for a wide range of riders from 10 years old to 90 years old. The TrailMaster 150XRS is roomy with a dash forward, open cockpit design. There's a lot of leg room for the big guys. The tilt steering wheel can be adjusted so that the youth rider can see over it. The driver's seat is also adjustable to accommodate a wide range of drivers. The seats in the TrailMaster 150cc are wide with no side bolster to pinch larger riders. Also, the 150 XRS comes standard with 5-point racecar style seatbelts. These features along with tall side rails and high top bars make for a comfortable and safe go-kart.

Precision Handling & Ruggedness
The 150 XRS uses oil filled coil over shocks for a smooth and controlled rebound ride. With an overall ground clearance of almost a foot (min. 6.7" at rear sprocket guard) and large ATV tires, the TrailMaster 150 XRS can get over logs, rocks and traverse shallow creek crossings. The 150 XRS steering geometery is similar to a truck with tall spindles and automotive style ball joints for long-term durability. The front axle is wider than the rear for stability and anti-plow effect (when the superior traction of a locked or live rear axle tends to push the vehicle straight ahead even though the front wheels are turned). The TrailMaster's short wheelbase allows for tight turns to maneuver around trees and obstacles to get you down the trail quickly and safely. This buggy uses all wheel drive hydraulic disc brakes with twin piston master cylinder for excellent stopping power. All wheel bearings are double sealed (like an expensive ATV) in order to keep dirt and water out.


Proven Engine Design
The engine on the 150 XRS uses a Japanese carburetor of top quality and a stainless steel muffler with a spring mounted manifold pipe similar to those found on racing dirt bikes. The sprocket and chain are a heavy-duty #530 and very easy to adjust. The engine air intake on the 150 XRS is located behind the driver seat headrest, which enables much cleaner air pick up.

Hands-On Research
At we believe that the TrailMaster 150 XRS is on of the best buys and a great value in the industry. Two people can go offroading for less than $2500. That's unheard of in the ATV market. Plus, the 150 XRS is a whole lot safer than an ATV. For inexperienced drivers, the 150 XRS is much easier to learn to drive without having to learn body movement that is necessary to properly drive an ATV. This go-kart is made of real steel. It has value and not disposable like computers, video games, etc. The 150 XRS has excellent resale value which can be around half the purchase price even after 6-8 years of use for a kart in decent condition.

The top speed of the TrailMaster 150 XRS is approximately 40 miles per hour. The go-kart has plenty of power, but it's not a crazy pop a wheelie when you hit the gas kind of power. However, the 150 XRS has enough power to spin the tires on loose dirt or gravel. There is adequate power for hill climbing. On an extremely long and steep hill, the kart may slow down some, but it does not like to give up.

The 150 XRS is very reliable and has one of the most popular engines, GY6, in the world. There are tons of replacement and performance parts available for this GY6 engine.

Designed to fit in the bed of a full-size pickup truck.

Like all machines, especially offroad vehicles, the TrailMaster 150 XRS does require some routine maintenance such as...
Engine oil changes and air filter replacement
Chain lubrication and adjustment
Pre-Drive inspection
Checking tire pressure

The two most common issues that we see with go karts, ATVs, lawn mowers, boats, etc. include gasoline and batteries. These problems can affect all kinds of equipment from $100 lawn mowers to $10,000+ ATVs and side-by-side vehicles. However, these two issues can be prevented with a little knowledge and understanding. To find out how you can avoid these common problems, visit our Go Kart Masters Garage for more information.

That's because we have assembled, serviced and tested the products ourselves before deciding to sell them exclusively online. Our go-kart industry experience is second to none. We stay on top of new products and designs to help people make informed choices.

The Garmin Approach S6 is the best golf GPS watch we’ve tested to date, combining overhead hole maps with a touchscreen to determine the distance to any point on the golf course…and it’s all available on your wrist. When we first heard about the overhead maps, we had doubts – how can you implement that level of functionality on the limited screen space of a watch? Garmin has devised an elegant solution using automatic zoom. At the tee box, the S6 automatically zooms on the area on the hole map that corresponds to your typical driving distance (which you input into the watch when you set it up). So if you’ve told the watch that you drive the ball 250 yards, it will zoom in to the area 250 yards down the fairway to show you what’s around your typical landing area. More about that below, but it really is a nifty way to provide the most relevant information to you when you need it – and there’s always the option to zoom back out and pick another area.
Garmin also provides an excellent set of features, including full scoring and statistics tracking (with the ability to sync the S6 to your Garmin Connect account and view aggregated data across all saved rounds), shot measurement, Bluetooth pairing to your phone to enable notifications to your watch, an odometer, and “PinPointer”, which is supposed to tell you the direction of the pin if you are taking a blind shot. But wait, there’s more! The Garmin S6 also has a “SwingStrength” feature to measure (you guessed it) your swing strength and tempo and a “TempoTraining” feature to work on achieving the optimal tempo for your swing. There are varying levels of success with which these features are executed, but at the very least they make the Garmin S6 fun to play with.
We won’t lie to you – the $399.99 price tag is steep. And there are some areas for improvement, like having hazard distances available in list form, and not just through using the touchscreen. But we’re willing to overlook those issues because we’ve fallen for the Garmin Approach S6, and fallen hard. In our opinion, the S6 truly sets the standard among the golf GPS watches currently on the market.

  • Overhead hole maps – on a watch!
  • Loads of statistical analysis available through synching to Garmin Connect
  • Strong course coverage
  • Handicap scoring
  • Can’t see scorecard or statistics on the device (but can sync and view them on a mobile app or web page)
  • No list of distances to hazards – you must use the overhead hole map

  • Really nice charging clip into which you snap the watch, enabling a nice snug connection every time. It may seem silly to highlight this, but on a surprising number of watches it’s difficult to tell whether the charging clip is connected or not.
  • No wall charger is provided, so the only way to charge the S6 is by plugging the USB cable into your computer.
  • The setup process for the GARMIN GOLF WATCH S6 was extremely simple and well designed. On the watch, you select a language (English, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, or Swedish) and unit of measurement (yards or meters), then enter your typical driver distance (which determines where the hole map will be zoomed when you’re standing on the tee box) and whether you’re right or left handed (which is relevant to the SwingStrength and TempoTraining features). After that, the watch directs you to the Garmin web site to download the Garmin Express program to your PC/Mac. Once you’ve done that and launched Garmin Express, you can create a Garmin Connect account online (to keep track of your scores and statistics), and the program will tell you if you need to update the course maps and/or software. You can then elect whether to perform any updates and sync the watch. The entire process took less than 10 minutes, and the instructions are complete enough that there was never any stress about whether things were being done correctly. If you need to download a new set of maps (usually if you’re changing geographical zones), it takes about 15 additional minutes. As a nice touch, Garmin lets you know that it is safe to walk away from that process so long as you don’t disconnect the device.
  • Once you’ve gone through the setup process, just charge up the battery and you’re good to go.
  • The only way you can sync the S6 to get software updates and course map updates is through the Garmin Express software on your PC/Mac. You can sync your saved rounds to your Garmin Connect account through either Garmin Express or by downloading the Garmin Connect mobile app and pairing the S6 to your mobile phone via Bluetooth. If you download the mobile app and log in to your Garmin Connect account, the app will guide you through simple steps to pair the S6 to your phone. From that point on, any scores that you save on the S6 will automatically be uploaded to your Garmin Connect account through the app.
  • One problem with the automatic uploading of your scores is that the S6 doesn’t differentiate between an actual round or when you’re just playing around with the S6 and looking at courses – it will just upload the score whenever you end a round. You can fix this by deleting the round, which you can do from your Garmin Connect account on the web. We couldn’t find a way to delete a round from the Garmin Connect mobile app.
  • Once the S6 is paired to your phone via Bluetooth, the S6 will display notifications of incoming calls, text messages (showing you the message itself), calendar reminders (displaying the name of the event), and any other notifications that you receive on your phone (i.e. events in your iPhone’s Passbook). The S6 can also provide an audible chime when you receive a notification, but your playing partners would probably prefer if you turned that feature off.
  • But of course it’s never all rainbows and unicorns. During one attempted sync of the S6 to a Mac, the Garmin Express software wouldn’t connect with the S6. After futzing around for about 15 minutes, including connecting and disconnecting the USB cable, rebooting the Mac, and having Garmin Express “forget” the device, we finally landed upon the idea of turning off the S6 and turning it back on (and then rebooting the Mac). Lo and behold, that did the trick. This was our one area of frustration in the setup/syncing process.
  • The Garmin Approach S6 has a screen diameter of 1 inch, which provides a viewing area of about 0.8 square inches – very typical for a watch GPS device. It’s about the size of an average watch, allowing you to avoid the “that’s a big honkin’ watch” reaction evoked by many of the S6’s competitors.
  • The S6 weighs about 1.6 ounces (as tested), which is lighter than the previous generation S1 and S3 and makes the S6 the lightest golf GPS watch we have tested. The rubber and plastic body is available in either black/white (with a black body and a band that is black on the exterior and white on the interior), black/orange (with a black body and a band that is black on the exterior and orange on the interior), or white/black (with a white body and a band that is white on the exterior and black on the interior).
  • Navigating through the features of the Garmin Approach S6 relies upon the use of a combination of the touchscreen and the four physical buttons – you cannot solely utilize one or the other. As a result, the user interface is more of a learned process than an intuitive one.
  • Garmin markets up to 8 hours of battery life while using GPS. We had no troubles making it through a slow round on a public course, and since 8 hours of juice is unlikely to make it through two rounds (definitely not on a muni on a Sunday), we didn’t bother testing exactly how far it would go in a second round. Garmin claims up to 4 months of battery life if you use the S6 as a watch only, and 15 hours if you use it as a watch with Bluetooth notifications turned on.

Numark NS7 Controller Review

The NUMARK NS7 Controller from Numark delivers high-resolution control so powerful, you’ll wonder how you ever DJ’d without it. The NS7 Controller is a dedicated controller for Serato™ ITCH. It ships with Serato ITCH and comes ready to control the DJ software of your choice, including Serato ITCH and Numark’s CUE DJ software.

Numark NS7 Review

Intro: This year Numark who is known for its industry-leading and proven technologies combined with its 30 years of maintaining the tradition of bringing us breakthrough products has finally made the official release of the highly anticipated NS7.
This system is so anticipated a waiting list has been established by Numark’s distributors as well as a pre-order system.
After doing some research I found out that Serato had first discussed the possibilities of collaborating on a direct-drive motorized turntable controller a little over 3 years ago.
With this said and done I had to see first hand what all the hype was really about, and do it first hand. In attempting to acquire the newly released NS7 it immediately proved to be a challenge. Shipments were extremely low and demand is high. In my search I managed to arrange with a local Guitar Center the notification of the first NS7 to enter the store. It turned out this was going to be the store’s display. After receiving notification and 1 hour of talking to the staff and managers I was able to make the purchase it and see what exactly all the hype was about.
It was love at first sight… The black beauty with classy billet aluminum platters having a true vinyl surface that contained the feel that any turntableist is so familiar with glistened, through the light.

First Impressions:
“This thing is a work of art” It brings a boldly modern and classically well known look and feel meshed with a futuristic control, for any turntablelist all in a well planned, well thought, and successfully executed manner.

Hardware: The unit has a good professional feel throughout the entire console, and seems to be constructed and fashioned from Black Anodized Brushed Aluminum within the platter area, 7 inch Machined and Polished Billet Platters with real slip mats, 45 Rpm record vinyl with polished aluminum adapters, a High Gloss Black Surface within the Mixer and Control areas and a matching Metallic Silver base and sides, all which make it too easy for anyone to forget even at first glance that this system is a MIDI controller.
It also becomes evident immediately that Numark’s primary focus was to deliver a look and feel Vinyl DJs are familiar with combined with easy accessibly and complete control. This is notice in the fact all inputs are conveniently located on the control surface and the front of the unit (with the exception of the USB connection). Further more the NS7 features rubberized buttons, knobs, and levers for a better tactile feel, slight grip and response, at a closer look you will also notice that detail was given not to rubberize the head phone channel/master monitor cross fader, the independent platter volume faders or, the cross fader which all have a excellent high quality feel to them making it a desirable choice for professional and performing DJs.

Software: After popping in the Serato Itch CD and following the instructions it also becomes immediately apparent that Serato and Numark both teamed up to make this incredibly super easy. Yes it’s true “it’s so easy even a cave man can do it”. The steps were like Plug in Power to the NS7, Pop the disc in, Follow the on screen instructions (just 2 or so steps which are connect your USB cable briefly disconnect and reconnect and you are ready to take over the world or any club one mix at a time in under merely a minute and a half.
Which brings me to this next section: The Overview?
After about 5 minutes and grinning from ear to ear you begin to realize just how precise and accurate the NS7 combined with Serato’s Itch really is, including its clarity. Numark is using a 24-bit, 44.1 kHz audio output on both the gold platted balanced XLRs as well as the Master and Booth RCA output connections. It also has a Headphone stereo ¼” and stereo 1/8” connection.

Other features include five hot-cue-assign buttons on each deck which are conveniently located and are able to activate, delete and reprogram instantly to your delight and to your immediate need. These cue points are reflected as marker points within the software screen and are re-callable not only within the hardware but through the software simultaneously.
I am uncertain if this was an unintentional feature. However, the vinyl records “slip” or slack on the platters can be further finely adjusted by loosening the allen spindle screw retaining the Polished Aluminum 45RPM adapters and adjusting the height or level, resulting in less or increased pressure between the record, slip mat and platter. I considered this to be a form of precision custom fine tuning offered as an additional measure to the two modes Motor Torque section switch located on the front of the NS7. By the way the another nice feature is the air cooling system introduced in the NS7 which cools the Platter motors housed in the all metal body if the unit. This proves to be a good preventative measure on the behalf of Numark.

On another note the previously mentioned High quality faders are Replaceable and use customizable CP-Pro cross fader and D-Type line faders. In addition to this the NS7 is the first of in its class to feature a patent pending Strip search virtual needle-drop control which is a touch sensitive strip which acts much to the way of dropping a needle in different locations of a records track in addition the standard Track “Back” and “Advance”

A good old school not left off was the Reverse Play function. This is activated with just a flip of a switch causing both your tack and motorized patters to reverse and is modernized with an added Bleep function activated when the switch is toggle the opposite direction.
Additionally you have full individual control over the “Start” and “Stop” timing of each platter side through 2 individual knobs per side. Another feature is the “Motor off” switch, this will allow the platters to function as a pitch bend when activated and is reflected in the software all the way down to the decimal point and when “On” will allow you to perform real time scratching or control the surface as you would of any vinyl record. There is a Key lock function to both platter sides to ensure there are no unwanted evil party crashing Chipmunks present in your live mixes, There are smooth, stiff pitch sliders with the traditional - + pitch bend buttons along with a Zero-Point LED so you know when you are at the track’s original recorded pitch position.

To bring out the creative remix DJ side of you Numark also added an extensive Serato-style loop section to each deck side for creative remixing, build ups, loops and more. Interestingly enough this feature has two modes: Automatic auto loop and Manual either of which you can use the automatic BPM analyzer to further assist in loop making thus creating smart loops of any measure. Aside from the loop control on/off there is a “½ x” and “2 x” which will split or half by any increment or double by any increment when selected as well as a shift section.
Over all combined with the capability of any Vinyl Turn Table available in the market today and a modern CD deck there is a major twist! NO MORE LUGGING OF RECORDS or CDs around!!! All you need now is a laptop, and some digital audio stored on a drive and, a NS7 and you are off mixing hours if not days at a time.

The History of Making Quality Handmade Quilts Beginning With Early Europe to Present Day America

Quilts have always fascinated me because of how everyone is really diverse and special and has exclusive definitions towards the one who handmade patchwork quilts. And so I did some research to follow the start of blankets up to the present moment.

In Europe, they became common using the Crusaders. Apparently, they wore them under their shield. Croatia followed a century later creating quilts along with the most mentioned one is called the "Tristan Quilt" which is held in a gallery, as well as a separate piece of it, 's held with a private party.

Amish baby quilts

Now we journey for the USA at the change of the 18th century. It was common for ladies to spin, place and sew their clothing for the family. They made blankets of fine needlework. During the time, they were cloth quilts. Material Amish applique quilts were made from "whole cloth". There were three levels of leading batting and 1 layer of support. Together they built a layout of flowers and chickens. Some were produced by a sewing around the bird while placing the batting inside to specify the form of the hen. This action was named "Trapunto." The "Broderie Perse" quilts are special in that the appliqués are from slice motifs of cloth that's produced with strong backgrounds. This was very popular in the 18th century. The material of this time frame was called Chintz. These published quilts were costly to even the individuals who were wealthy.The bedspread was made of the homespun material by slicing numbers of chickens and blooms into the cover. The approach was beautifully done and used simply on special events. Some Amish quilt designs had medallions occur the middle with a motif of an eagle or a pine frequently in a toile fabric. The boundaries encompassing the theme primarily were solid colors. Some blankets were made in "Block" type and were sewn together with a to offer it a finished look.

By the mid-1800's, fabrics became affordable to the majority of individuals and Amish log cabin quilts became extremely popular. Some Amish quilt patterns were made with restored material from making dresses. If you go to a Public, you'll discover quilts made of a specific fabric.

In 1850's, the Artist Sewing Machine Firm created a way for individuals to manage sewing machines with payment options. From the 1870's, most homes had sewing machines to make clothing and/or Amish quilts. Several of the Amish quilting was accomplished yourself alongside sewing machines. Throughout the Civil War, blankets were made to raise money in assistance of the Abolitionists also to retain soldiers comfortable. They'd sell the Amish quilting at District Fairs to improve money. These were typically the finest handmade patchwork quilts with appliqués of wonderful models and occasionally anti-slavery slogans were wear the blankets to make individuals aware of the cruelty of slavery. They were likewise made by ladies on both sides of the conflict to give troopers temperature.

In the Northern states, women built tiny blankets cut from bedspreads to fit Military costs. While in the Southern states where cotton was expanded, it had been tough to Amish quilts for sale since the Northern had the factories to turn cotton into fabric. Because the desires increased, ladies had to go back to weaving to be able to create mattress covers once again.

The middle-19th-century things started to change. The Medallion and Broderie Perse patterns were common. Materials started to be constructed on the wide scale. Women did not have to devote numerous hours, times and months weaving and spinning their handmade blankets.

Down the road, we have the Amish quilts using their strong models as well as a variety of shades with sewing which was exceptional. Quilts were brought here once the Amish originated from Europe almost 250 years ago. Initially, Amish handmade blankets wherever full material in strong colors. Subsequently, while in the 1870's, habits and fabrics were made in accordance with their areas. In Lancaster, Pa. across the 1940's, they were manufactured from wool. In Ohio, they were manufactured from cotton. Amish girls were granted to use their own creative ideas. It became a cultural occasion for the women to come back together. They also started generating blankets to increase their revenue and their blankets are visible throughout the globe.

Nowadays, the blankets are generally employed for kicks. Amish quilts for sale are occasionally useful for wedding presents and in fact, they are such great souvenirs that they cross them from one generation to some other. Amish baby quilts can also be very popular. If you do not the umbrella, you can often discover spots to buy these superb quality heirlooms. The period hasn't declined the love of quilts.
