    Our experiences may differ depending on which firmware is on the device. I have not updated mine since about 2013, as there is no way to rollback to an old version and their firmware is shit at best.

    800s are fine, but you need to know how the firmware breaks.

    • longer thans 24 hrs recording will lose all your activity
    • Auto power off on a paused but not finished activity will wipe it (turn off auto power off in settings)
    • Multi day events, if you don't backup your recorded rides, once it runs out of space it'll delete the first one, etc etc. I lost day one of TD this way (was saving to internal memory)

    I split my routes into 200 mile segments for Tour Divide, didn't use turn by turn, but did use cuepoints for some turnings and also city limits of major towns so I could see in the cue sheet how far the next town was from my current location. Very useful in the middle of the desert to know that it's 83 miles to the next town, so you can ration water accordingly.

    At least if he crashes it, it won't look so fucked.

    Tour Divide style bike would be good for this kinda thing. MTB with aero bars.

    Exactly, it's pretty much perfect for Colorado and it's extensive dirt-road network

    Until it rains, then the peanut butter will clog everything.

    Does it have rotor guards?

    If so, fuck off!

    Speak to your accountant, but you can't change yourself rent, but you may be able to charge for use of home premises, I work from home, in the spare room as my office, and I am here 99% of the time, I can draw ~£200 per month for use of home premises.
