I did a search that didn't produce any results. So here goes with an open ended question.
I bought a Garmin 705 with microSD card containing the maps. I had the idea I could use one device for both bike and car. But, today I discovered the maps in the microSD card are not upgradeable. Plus, I discovered a couple other items.
But, I am fully satisfied with the bike data portion. Except for the download of routes from mapmyride which I have not used.
The dealer is willing to take the 705 back for credit or to sell me a 500. What to do?
What have your experiences been with the 500? How is it as a bike computer? Does it work satisfactorily downloading rides and following them (like when traveling and you want to know where to ride)?
In short buy the 500 or go back to the non-gps bike computer and call the whole thing a failed experiment?
