Best bike computer for bike tour on the Pacific Coast?
« on: December 23, 2016, 10:30:35 am »
Hi! I hope you are all well.
I am planning a bike trip along the Pacific Coast next summer.
I plan to navigate using offline maps on my smartphone and as a backup, and to store all my trip stats, to use a bike computer.

Ideally I would like to download the route onto this bike computer device and just follow it..

Could any of you recommend the best device for this?

Thanks so much!

Dublin Dave.

I don't have an answer for you, but since this question isn't really specific to the Pacific Northwest, you'd probably get a better response (or a response at all!) if you posted this in Gear Talk or even General Discussion.

EDIT: Thanks, moderators for moving this!

I'd also advise doing a search first, since this is the type of question that comes up a bit.

I'd suggest reading this thread in the GPS Discussion:

http://forums.adventurecycling.org/index.php?topic=14011.0

And this information from our Digital Data for Devices section of our website:

GPS Devices: https://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/digital-data-for-devices/tracks/gps-devices/
Mobile Devices/Apps: https://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/digital-data-for-devices/tracks/mobile-devices/

You can purchase digital data for use in both devices for the Pacific Coast route either by section or the entire route:

I hope this helps!
