Suggest you check out the garmin etrex20x. My etrex 20 (discontinued) has served me well for years on many rides, many well over 100 miles and some at dark. Longer rides I preplan on cyclestreets or cycletravel, though I do use autorouting sometimes for short bits, usually limited to 10 to 15K. No plans to downgrade it to anything garmin labels Tourer/Explorer/Adventurer/Road warrior or whatever.I gave up on ours a couple of years ago after it malfunctioned and got us lost around Saddleworth
@Almartino perseveres with it but he swears at it. Alot!
We are in Belgium with it at the moment and it has nearly been lobbed in a canal several times.
Will be looking into Wahoo when we get back
Would you not need a garmin with bluetooth connection for that?If you download the app dynamicWatch onto garmin connect and your phone , it lets you plot cycle routes on your phone and send them straight to garmin
There are more things you can do with it but gets a bit faffy but it works
No Bluetooth on Edge Tour. Not sure about Explore and if it’s just suitable for Connect software. And not many are going to lug a laptop around on tour. The Edge really isn’t a great option which is another reason I dumped it. Mainly because of Garmin’s rubbish software was the reason I jumped ship.Hasn’t it got Bluetooth?
If not then you will need laptop and download them before hand into new files folder
Any app will do that but I really like cycle.travel

It's possible to connect your garmin/wahoo directly to a phone or tablet with an OnTheGo (OTG) cable and suitable adapter.No Bluetooth on Edge. And not many are going to lug a laptop around on tour. It really isn’t a great option.
If I'm reading that correctly your cable seems to be the issue.I think to be honest it depends on the Android tab Hobbes. I have an OTG cable and a Lenovon tab. It is very hit and miss as to whether the link works. I often seem to get a warning telling me to shut down because of some power issue and am somewhat loath to ignore this. I have tried using an OTG cable which allows you to link a power bank into the system but this doesn't always work. So my preffered system these days is to use a small (11 inch or so) Chromebook. Only cost me £100, easy to protect, goes in panniers OK, easier to use with its own keyboard and USB I/Os.
