  • Any of you technocrats got a route to Ditchling from West London way already routed out for the garmin

    ta n stuff

  • possibly

    look up dancing_james on the garmin website

  • you should also look up that user name on find-a-rentboy.com

  • but the going rate for a man tart whose cock fits through spagettihoops is so much cheaper

  • the bottom has dropped out of the market.

  • rough trade prolapse?

  • you don't want to know the details.

  • like a bloodied cauliflower?

  • tin of chopped plum tomatoes?

  • a bit of both, with some herpes on the side.

  • does herpes count as meat - if so there is a free meal going

    i've got a route leaving from brockley/crystal palace if that will do you any good?

  • If you still need a route, make a destination thing on google maps for the route you want and send me the link. I will send you back a .gpx.

  • I've been looking at the Garmin Edge, especially the cheaper ones without maps. Thinking of trying it with some downloaded Open Stree Maps data.

    Has anyone tried this?

    I think it's the same, except you can't do route planning on-the-go. Should still give you warnings before junctions on planned routes, though, right? And I'll be able to download a GPX file from Bikely and have it guide me through the route?

    If this should work then I think an older 205 should do everything I want for half the price of the new 605/705.

  • Bit of discussion about this here

    I have an edge 605 but didnt really get on with it - I'm not sure the OSM works with the Edge's
    I got a non bike specific Etrex Legend Hcx in the end, totally compatible with OSM (found it invaluable on my Euro holiday this year) non proprietry batteries (so you can take spares) Better satellite finding and easier to use in my opinion.
    I used to have a 205 and as far as I know you can't put extra maps on it - unless some firmware upgrade has changed this. Only the 605 and 705 have replaceable maps.
    OSM rules, my fella does a lot of work on it as well and had me mapping postboxes in Eltham on my bike last Saturday...the things I do for love..!
    Go non bike specific FTW

  • I took a Garmin 605 to Italy (it had some issues), Object and DJ had a 605 and a 705 respectively, both of which worked.

    I've been considering the GPS computer market, and am now thinking about going for the Forerunner 305 or 310XT as I would like to do Triathlon.

    Or at least go running.

    Could someone with (hopefully) experience of both chime in please?

  • I've UTFS and noted that there are a few Edge owners on here. I'm thinking of an Edge, having currently got a Forerunner 305 and Novi sat nav in the jam jar.

    Does anyone use their Edge as a car GPS? Can you use POI loader on the Edge for routes, speed scameras etc? Is its functionality suited to in-car use?

    And overall, what do users think of the Edge?

  • Must be a few knocking around on here - what's the real world battery life like, when you are actually using it fully functioning - i.e. navigating, cadence and HR working etc?

  • DJ has one (not that that's super useful on here) and I'm pretty sure Hendrik does as well.

  • 9 hours is the longest I've had one running for, battery didn't run out.

    That was navigating from a GPX track, cadence and heart rate.

    Screen was in day mode, set to 50% brightness and always on.

  • My expereince is much as dommyracer, 8.5 hours run time navigating garmin fomat file with cadence and heart rate, no back light on and lots of capacity left at the finish line, (the garmin that is!)

  • I used one to cycle down to Toulouse in August and used it for anywhere between 6 and 10 hours a day without issues.

    Great device.

  • Super, thanks chaps.

  • There's a setting somewhere that changes the rate of data recording from every second to umm, longer. that can give you a little more battery time.

    It doesn't really change the battery life but does effect the internal memory storage a bit.
    My experience is the same as others 8-9 hours with the screen brightness on, up to 14 with it off.
