    Default Good device for cycling

    Anyone who knows a not so expensive garmin device, which can be used for cycle tours and training? With ability to see the map in sun light and to connect a headphone for hearing voice advices?

    You are in the wrong place. You should have put it here [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    There is only one model of what you want but it is not cheap

    I will add etrex 20/30 and Dakota 10/20. No Bluetooth but to be honest I can't imagine riding a bysicle with voice guidance.

    Since now i use run.gps, but there is no routing without online connection. There i use voice guidance for predefined routes over headphone.
    But for the lack of routing and some other things i now want to give a try to something, that can use topo maps and can be used for cycling AND walking tours.
    While cycling there is not always the ability to see tzhe route on the device if the sun is shining. So voice guidance is a good alternative.

    Thx, also good device but even more expensive than the edge 800.
    In my favourite shop there are sometimes some units reduced in price. I will have al look, if one of the suggestions is available.
    I think edge is my favourite, but dakota 20 would be a lot cheaper.

    All navigation with touchscreen have a same problem. It's little bit harder to see map on it. But this is not to kill you. Don't worry. I like cycling in the mountain and my first device it was 60CSX. Now I use Dakota 20. I change it because I mark a lot a point when I ride and it's was not easy to write a name. With dakota is too easy! Dakota is little small.
    Every one device have a positive and negative!
    I recommend you Dakota 20.

    i will have a look at this. The small size can be an advantage.
