    Open Maps instead of Garmin?

    So I gave in and bought a new Edge 530 as an upgrade from my ailing 520.

    Garmin Edge 200

    I lost mine! (Stupid Spinney). Having seen the prices of the current 'basic' models, and also the increased complexity (which I neither need nor want), I'd much rather replace it with another one the same. So if you've upgraded and have an old Edge 200 languising somewhere, I'll gladly give you...

    Garmin Edge 820 - Battery Life

    I have a Garmin Edge 820 which in most respects I quite like. However, the battery life, which was never great, has reduced to around 4 hours or even less in some circumstances.

    Tough Garmin

    A few days ago I was rapidly descending a long hill at a speed of around 40 mph. All of a sudden my Garmin e-trex touch 25 parted company with the bike and after bouncing along for a while, came to rest at the side of the road. I fully expected it to be completely destroyed but when I picked it...
