    If you haven't looked already, start here:

    https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=166&pID=230

    You can't add maps, and I'm not sure you can load a previous track to follow. Looks like you can set waypoints though. Your ability to use this as a navigational aid is very limited. However, you should be able to take it with you on a ride, and then upload the track and see on a map where you have been.

    The older garmins like this used a serial connection. Newer ones are usb. If all you have are usb you can get a serial to usb adapter at radio shack, etc.
    I'm looking forward to regretting this.......
