I'm considering purchasing a GPS unit, rather than a cycle computer, for my LHT which is in the process of being built. The model I'm considering is the Garmin Edge 800.
I am interested in the comments of anyone who has used this product (in particular) or who have experience using GPS (in general) when touring.
I have not use a GPS before and wonder how useful they are, how dependable, up to date and available maps are, how readily custom maps can be created and uploaded, and how trustworthy they are for route-finding (or following).
My touring in the short term will be limited to here in Australia, but I hope to be touring in North America and Europe some time in the future.
