    GPS for Cycling

    Anyone have a favorite GPS receiver for use in road cycling? The new Garmin wrist band unit has a cycling mode. Anyone have any experience with it?

    I use GPS on long rides.

    I'm fed up of getting lost in the middle of the night, so I use a GPS now. Magellan Sportrak Color. Magellan units get a much better signal than Garmin ones due to a larger antenna, but when using one with mapping software, the accuracy of the software is crappy. Garmin has a better interface and better screen, and they are smaller. But if it's cloudy/rainy/you're under trees, you don't get any signal with your Garmin unit.

    The wrist thing from Garmin is a nice toy for running, but I don't see the point for biking, since you already have your speed/mileage with the bike computer.
