eTrex Venture

Just found a new in the box Venture that I won while on a camping trip in 2007 or 2008. It has the pc interface cable and the unit but no manual so I need help on how to get started and use it. How do I download a google bicycle route into the Venture? Does it already have maps or do I have to purchase and download maps into it (HOW) and is it really worth the cost or is it so outdated as to not be worth it? The box says "with WAAS", and 1 MB memory for poi.
I will be using it for bicycle road navigation only but would love for it to have road maps like car gps units have as well as off road trails if possible to not get lost.
Thanks,
Tony

Looked here? https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=8707&ra=true
Has a manual download. May not be '07 model, but perhaps further
drilling on the garmin site might turn up something.
