It is understandable that an additional speed sensor would be useful for a trainer.

I guess that I am just disappointed. I want downloadable maps, not just trace routes. Trace routes are OK for hiking or running because your range really isn't all that great. However, for cycling, it would be very nice to have robust mapping capability. But I guess this is how Garmin differentiates their training products from their mapping products.
