    I sold an 820 and bought a Bolt as I had four 820s and non worked properly. That was 12 months ago though.IMO Garmins mapping is better than the mapping on the Bolt so I’d go with the Garmin if I need mapping.The 1030 is a better unit than the 820.

    I use a Bolt on my MTB all the time. Love it. I use it for ride tracking and route following, using Strava to plan the route. No turn-by-turn this way but I have never got lost.
    Cube Reaction GTC Pro 29 for the lumpy stuff
    Cannondale Synapse alloy with 'guards for the winter roads
    Fuji Altamira 2.7 for the summer roads
    Trek 830 Mountain Track frame turned into a gravel bike - for anywhere & everywhere

    You can get turn-by-turn using RidewithGPS to plot routes.Works with the free version too.
