So after looking through some of REI's Labor Day deals (no I'm not an REI employee!) I have come across the Garmin Oregon 450 at a very good price compared to some other websites I've looked at (http://www.rei.com/product/798879?pr...:referralID=NA).
Anyway I have been in the market for a computer for my bicycle for about 3 weeks researching others and I have realized that GPS is a necessary feature for me because I like to bike with no pre-planned route and get lost, so finding my way back can be tough. I plan on doing some light credit card touring in the future and figured that a GPS would help me out find places nearby to eat as well. I have looked at the Garmin Dakota 20 & Garmin Edge 705 (I have read that having a GPS that takes MicroSD cards is basically a requirement).
I did not previously look at the Garmin Oregon because I had heard it was too big, but after looking at pictures of what it looks like on bicycles it does not seem too much bigger than the Dakota that I was looking at and the larger display could be helpful to read things off of it easier.
I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with the Garmin Oregon 450 or any other GPS's that could shed some light on my plans to tour in the future / use it for trails near my own area considering I do not like to have pre-planned routes.
