Garmin or Strava for routes abroad ?
Hello all, new forum member here.
I have been looking into the merits of Garmin v Strava. My aim is for building person stats on routes and also to record recording routes on events this year. I am registered for a 170km route in Ontario Canada next month and want to have something that can rely on to work without issue. With this in mind, I am guessing that Garmin will be the way to go (I have the Edge200 in mind since it is not relying on the mobile/cell network. Can anyone shed some experiences here.
I have also read a bit about the GPS technology on mobiles and gather that they are not full-time GPS trackers, replying on cell towers from time to time. Again, I may have this wrong.
Any assistance would be welcome. By the way, I only use a simple PAYG mobile so would have to either buy a new mobile or enter into a new contract.
