Garmin 305 CAD on a road bike?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Wow, that's really cool! I have a Gamin 305 and didn't know it does that!

Can you tell me how you do it? I gotta give that a try.

Just wondering if anyone has tried using the Garmin 305 or 205 on a road bike (primarily for training, maybe to stop from getting lost...) and what your review is on it.....

Not to prevent getting lost................I like getting lost! I use mine to track my rides and see improvement. Quite costly but cheaper than hiring a trainer and with the MB site really analyze your rides there.
