i want one but everytime i have been to a shop or bike show and spoke to garmin or looked them up on the net i just ended up getting confused as to which model to buy! the sales guys can never seem to tell me what each unit does without baffling me! or giving me too many options rather than saying "yep, that one is perfect for you."
i just want it to point me in the direction i need to go in for the map i have loaded on it preferably with a bit of a detailed map picture, a simple satnav, if it comes with other stuff great but i have a cateye computer for all the other stuff so don't really need any more than the map stuff.
so you guys are using the edge 605/705? i assume from reactions you're pleased with them.
are they simple to use?
is it easy to add the map software?
is it easy to create you own routes and add them?
is it dumbass proof?
I was in the same mind as you, they are not marketed very well. Put it this way, It was a complete git to set up, literally hours of pulling my hair out due to Garmin being inept at producing software that registers properly (MapSource needs to be registered to the GPS to unlock it), BUT, once up and running, its a doddle to use, and quite intuitive.
