    Bye Bye Smart Phone....Now I need....?

    OK, So I'm getting ride of my smart phone and going with a dumb phone. I was using my phone to record my rides with Strava. I'd like to get a regular cycling computer but I'm just not sure which one would suit my needs.

    Here is what I would like to do:

    • Record Stats but I dont necessarily need a HRM
    • Map my ride with Strava or something comparable
    • A map feauture would be cool especially if I could see it real time while I ride and be able to upload a route before the ride
    • The ability to bring up past mapped rides to "re-ride" the same route would be doubly cool


    I'm a total newbie when it comes to GPS and I have read several threads but without "real" experience I can't relate to the "GPS Lingo"

    ...Thanks for your help in advance.....

    Anything with a map would work for you. That leaves you a lot of options, still. Browse Garmin's site and see what you like

    Nate, from your professional experienced standpoint, what are some of the "better" options?
    I've looked at the Garmin 200 & 500 but noticed this in the specs:

    I appreciate any guidance you can provide....

    Right, so those models would not do what you want. The 800 and 810 would, as well as a couple of etrex models, the Dakotas, and Oregons
