DC Rainmaker Edge 800 Review
Below are a couple of the functions the Edge 800 has this I find interesting and think will be useful.
It will feature Satellite imagery – know as Birdseye Satellite Imagery
Subscribers to BirdsEye Satellite Imagery can quickly transfer high-resolution satellite images to Edge 800 and seamlessly integrate those images into the onscreen maps to get a true representation of the surroundings. And Garmin’s Custom Maps can bring the details, labels and landmarks of your existing paper or electronic map to Edge 800 in just a few simple steps. (Not available off the shelf model – has an additional subscription fee)
I am a fan of touch screen myself I find it a bit easier just to touch the screen rather than use button to navigate the menu so I was happy to hear the Edge 800 is touch screen as well as having kept the to button to assist navigation. After reading DC rainmakers review I would be happy to say that it still keeps the touch screen functionality while using gloves.
Also with the other Garmin Edge models it supports ANT + transmitters. So it will compatible with your old Garmin or ANT+ heart rate strap, ANT+ Power meters and speed cadence sensors.
