• I have a Garmin 205, and it's the bollocks.

    You can use Bikely to map out routes on Google maps and then upload them to the unit, which gives you a nice idiot-friendly "follow the arrow" direction thingy. You press a button and it starts recording data, which you can then upload to your computer when you're home again. I'm now hankering for the 305, as it gives even more data! ;-)

    The Garmin software is an abortion, though. I use Ascent on OSX, but there are some Windows equivalents.

    The only real problem I've had with it is that it can take a while to get a solid GPS signal, and you're limited to only 50 waypoints on your routes - which means it's not much cop for long, complicated rides. Apart from that, it's excellent.
