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

I do have a question for concerning that 530, I found it doesn't have address to address routing, so if I'm touring and I want to get to a particular address from where I'm at how do you get it to route if you can't put in an address and you don't know where it's at?

I believe there are Garmin IQ apps that do this. I didn't buy it for that, and and nor am I likely to use it in that manner, so it doesn't bother me. I think the 830 does so maybe you want to get that instead.

Id also suggest looking up the route in Google maps on your phone first. You can then find the location on the 530 map and navigate to that point. If I'm going somewhere new I always look it up on Google maps first, anyway, so I'm familiar with the area and can make informed decisions about the route.

So why own a Garmin if I'm going look it up on my iPhone with Google maps first? I wish I knew someone personally that had one of those to see how it worked.

I know about the 830, but I was just trying to find out how do you navigate with the 530 from one place to another if you can't input an address.

Do you really want your large, expensive phone mounted on the front of your bike? I don't. Also, it conserves your phone battery for when you really need it. Your phone will be better for route planning, unless you want to splash out for the 1030.

Have you looked on you tube? I bet there are videos on there that will help.

You can do it directly on the unit if you know where it is on a map. You "browse" on your map page, and move the cross hairs to your desired location on the map and then select the navigate option. Moving the cross hairs around is clunky but not terribly difficult after you get used to it. Alternatively, you can store favorite locations ahead of time and then just select from the list of stored locations and navigate to them.

Upgraded from a Wahoo Bolt to a Garmin Explore. The Bolt works well but it is had to for me to see the display, especially the map.

Parks DAG 2.2 hanger alignment tool. Because my bike just isn't shifting properly. I've ruled out user error or just being a klutz.😁

San Marco Superleggera saddle, I bought the slightly heavier Carbon FX model last year and it’s quickly become the best saddle I’ve ever used. I found the Superleggera model online today with 61% discount, could not turn that down!

Jersey Pocket Essential Case

I use my Jersey pockets to carry tools, spares etc. I have 2 GCNs, and 1 Rapha small case. Wanted them all to be the same size, longer/larger and waterproof (like Rapha) so I got the next best thing (Muc-Off Rainproof Essentials Case) .

Compared to Rapha, material is very similar, the dimension looks the same (compared to the Large size) but $10 cheaper.

GOT THIS

TO REPLACE THIS

I looked at a few options earlier this year and sort of let it fizzle, so this new one could be great.
