can't believe i'm asking this but, i had the edge touring and basically if i didn't want to use turn by turn, i simply loaded course/map, selected it and instead of clicking 'Ride', i just cicked the start button, that put the course line color of road turns etc onto the map i was viewing when cycling, so i just followed the line, easy as.
i can't seem to do this with the edge 1000? i do the same but can never see the course lines. do you have to use turn by turn??! i must be missing something.
