    Question Need a GPS unit with directions/map

    We are starting to do much longer road rides in new areas and are going to need something to keep better track of us. My roommate does not want to get a Edge 800 (I use a 500) but I was wondering if the Edge 305 does any mapping or are we going to need to go to the 705 for that?

    This will most likely be road use only, need decent battery life as some of these rides can take 4+ hours.

    My 705 will go 10+hours. I rode a century last summer and it tracked/mapped me all the way. Best piece of kit I ever bought for my cycling

    The Edge 305 does not have any street mapping capability.
