- Garmin Edge 200
I had an etrex H which did the breadcrumb thing (eg just a dotted trail, no map) and I found it worked well – I did various events/rides with it and the only issues I ever had was if a trail forked and both forks went in very similar directions to start but you quickly realise that you took the wrong one if you did.
I do have a mapping one now though as I like being able to see what’s around where I ride but it’s definitely not a necessity.Posted 3 years agoGavinBSubscriber
I find it great. Set the routes as tcx, select use course point warnings (on Bikeroutetoaster at any rate), and it will warn you of a turn. You can then switch the screen to other information, and it will pop up with the turn, or follow the breadcrumb trail.
The main/obvious limitation is when you have a complex junction. It’s not clear exactly ‘which’ turn you need to take. As a basic GPS for road use, I like it.Posted 3 years agozilog6128Subscriber
How is it for following the breadcrumb trails? I’ll be using it on the road bike.
Excellent for this use – did loads of road riding last year with mine (got an 800 now). Just make sure you use route software that does turn-by-turn and save as TCX. As long as you don’t need to deviate from the route it is great (if you do then you’re screwed!)Posted 3 years agoahwilesSubscriber

but you do get a handy ‘you’re meant to be over there >> you muppet’ arrow, pointing roughly in the direction of the nearest point on-course.
