  • It's not so much planning a route but working out diversions due to road closures / unsuitable roads etc as and when you come across them out on a ride. I can normally work out a way round whilst still riding if I zoom out and pan around. Having to stop and check the phone was a real pain on the 530.

    True. Being able to work on out-the-fly detours on TPBR with an Edge 1030 when my pre-prepared route tried to send us down a gravel track or along a road we weren't legally able to ride was quite handy. Doing that with a 530 would have been a big PITA. I only really use my 530 on routes I either know, so don't need nav, or where I've done them before so I know that having to re-route on the fly is unlikely.

  • No, that's for pictures of my food from italy to make you jealous.

  • I didn't know they existed but does anyone use magnetic charging cables, leaving the "dongle" bit in the device?

  • Yeah, use it on a Sony phone. I was going to buy them for my Samsung but ended up buying a new phone anyway which had USB-C so never bothered.

  • My Garmin Edge 25 battery is not holding more than 5.5hrs of charge in this cool weather. Sadly I think I need to upgrade.

    Any crazy cybermonday GPS deals?

    I think the Edge 530 looks good. It can be charged whilst in use apparently.
