I use the eTrek 20. I bought mine refurbished. Uses 2 AA batteries. I load routes from RideWithGPS and just follow the line. If I somehow miss a turn, then I will zoom out a bit on my map and retrace my route until I get back to where I belong. One time I had to make a detour as tree trimming trucks had the rails-to-trails path completely blocked. It was no big deal.

I did purchase the TOPO 24K maps from Garmin (microSD) for the Great Lakes region. When I rode in Virginia, I just downloaded free mapsets.

I purchased the "Bike Motorcycle Cycle Handlebar Mount for Garmin eTrex 20 (sku 19600)" from Amazon to mount the unit on my handlebars. It has worked very well for me.
