On my commute home I used a feature called Virtual Partner. This is a brilliant feature that allows you to have a race against yourself. You tell the Garmin what speed you'd like to maintain and then the device displays a person on a bicycle going at that speed. You can see your progress - faster or slower - against this virtual partner. It also shows you how far behind or ahead you are.
This is a great little feature and would come in very handy for training for racing events or to maintain a certain pace. I enjoyed using it and again glancing at the display was not distracting and felt quite natural.
Last night I downloaded a route a friend had emailed to me quite easily. All is stored away and on Saturday morning I will press go and let it direct me. You can almost certainly read about that trip sometime next week.
I am beginning to like this little Garmin a bit too much for my liking!
