There are numerous threads on Cycling GPS, and lots of catalogues out there, but maybe one of you that knows these devices can give me a quick and current answer.
What model Garmin should I get these days with mapping and barometric altitude, for cycling and backpacking application?.
I see the Garmin Edge 305 reported as the most popular device but it might have more features than what I would use, and I don't want to spend more than necessary.
I am not really interested in heart rate monitors, and I don't want to replace my speedometer, as the GPS would not be used on training or local rides that I already know, only on trips, where I want to know where I am, plot a route, and want to be able to see the vertical profile and routes of rides or hikes. So having two sensors for speed seems unnecesary, and useless for walking. Does this make sense? Do others use a GPS in this fashion?
I understand the device needs to be a Garmin because Garmin compatible maps are available for Argentina.
