Garmin Edge 1030

If you want a giant fancy screen with the best maps, the Garmin Edge 1030 is your unit of choice. It also has great battery life and a tonne of features.

That said, do you really need a touch screen? It's difficult to use in gloves or in the rain. And it has some sync issues with the Garmin Connect app: it is often difficult to get a route onto the device. Plus, Garmin had a 5-day outage in 2020 that they never apologised for.
