Follow a route or navigate, discover POIs and recalculate the route if you have strayed from the path. The clear display of trails, turn-by-turn directions and tour-specific maps with possible highlighting of popular routes help you find your way. If you want to veer off your planned route to do some exploring, you can pause guidance and recalculation.

Gut verarbeitet, jedoch hat mir die Garmin Infrastruktur nicht gefallen. Die Verbindung mit Apple funktioniert einfach nicht anständig, zudem ist die Konfiguration des System nicht sehr intuitiv. Daher ist das Gerät wieder zurück gegangen und ich bin beim Wahoo geblieben.

Ich habe mir 2019 den Sigma Rox 12 gekauft. Dachte mir, nicht immer Garmin, der Rox hat mir gute Dienste geleistet. Bei längeren Touren musste aber immer eine "Powerbank" mit, den nach etwas mehr als 5 Stunden war Schicht im Schacht.

Den Edge 1040 habe ich seit 31.07 jetzt bei einigen längeren Touren (4-7 Stunden) dabei. Nicht mehr aufgeladen. Heute 24.08 immer noch 33% Akku!

Auch das Display und die Handhabung sind einfach klasse.

Sorry Sigma, aber nie mehr.
