That sounds like what I need! Thank you for sharing! Was contemplating between the this and edge series but Bolt's simple interface looks better to me.I have an Elemnt Bolt, and it is very easy to use. The main difference to Garmin is that Wahoo cycling computers allow you to zoom in and out of pages, i. e. where Garmin forces you to create different pages, you can change the number of data fields with the zoom feature.
With the Wahoo you can plan a route, but you do it on the phone and then sync the route to your cycling computer via Bluetooth. Even if I could do it on the Element, I don’t think I’d want to if I can whip out the phone and have a substantially larger screen and a much faster CPU.
As far as following a route, the Bolt taken together with a smartphone works alright. I would not use it for free flowing navigation, but it works really well if you want to stick to a specific route. But since I always carry my phone with me, that’s not an issue: I check maps on my phone should I get lost and/or want to navigate and then I can stick to the Wahoo.
I found no fault with the GPS function so far. With the speed sensor speed and other measurements remain reliable even in tunnels or forests where the GPS signal may be spotty.
As with any piece of technology, nothing is flawless. E. g. sometimes my Bolt would no longer show phone notifications while riding. And they could put in a CPU. I’d also like the Roam’s new color screen and gorilla glass.
