I'm a bit of a luddite re Garmins etc (translation: I don't have one) - when with a group, I rely on everyone else knowing the route, when heading out solo, I'll print out a cue sheet. I keep my smartphone in my jersey pocket, running Strava, so I can track distances for maintenance purposes (the rest of the Strava universe doesn't interest me). Otherwise, the phone is pretty useless. The occasions when the cue sheet doesn't match what I'm seeing with my own eyes, I'm usually too far out in the sticks for the cell to get a map app signal to resolve the contradiction. Honestly, my phone is in case I need to call for rescue following a mechanical, or to surf during coffee/carb break
