What are you using to track your rides and give you info while riding?
If Garmin - what model do you suggest? Other suggested brands and models?
If Phone - are you using Strava? How are you mounting phone to see speed, etc?
Or are you using something else?
Thanks Daryl... very helpful!
Thanks, Gary, for asking the question and Daryl for such a thorough answer! I’m considering the Garmin 520 and the 820...but was also looking at the Wahoo. This was helpful!
Right now I just use Strava in my phone—-for the most part it works well tho I doubt it’s as accurate as a bike computer. Like the auto message if you crash!
Sorry, really late post for this one, the Edge 820 has all the detailed maps, it is touch screen and offers a variety of levels of sensitivity--early ones could be turned on and off by heavy rain drops. It is great! tracks everything you want, it can reverse a route you a
have partially traveled to get you home allows you to customize your screens. Pairing with power meters and heart rate monitors is easier than with some early edge computers. I understand the Wahoo now offers many of these features and I believe that it is cheaper.
Thanks Henri! I still haven't committed and was ready to buy a Garmin. But which one? and should I look at using a phone mount instead? I like the idea of having a garmin and my strava b/c every once in a while my strava doesn't work well. at least this way they would back each other up.
