Die Bedienung ist nicht wirklich leicht.
Absolut nicht intuitiv. Schade bei so einem Gerät hätte ich mir mehr erwartet

Top Gerät! Akkulaufzeit beeindruckend. Die Einrichtung ist sehr einfach, vor allem wenn man ein Vorgängermodell hat. Dann kann man über die Connect App alle Einstellungen und Sensoren übernehmen. Nur das Varia Licht musste ich neu koppeln. Die Solarfunktion ist super, obwohl man das Maximum wahrscheinlich nur am Äquator zu Mittag erreicht... die Halterung aus Metall beseitigt ein Problem das ich beim Vorgänger(edge 1030) hatte: die Haltenase an der Rückseite war gebrochen. Der Funktionsumfang ist ebenfalls beeindruckend. Die Navigation mit gnss wurde noch präziser, man sieht auf welcher Seite der Straße man unterwegs war... Wer mit dem Preis kein Problem hat, bekommt ein Top Gerät!!!

Solar Funktion ist prima für lange Touren und Bedienung ist einfach, könnte aber intuitiver sein.
