It's small size makes this unit a winner for biking. Battery life has not been a drag, but I would recommend using rechargeable ni-cads. The lighted display is a great feature and the display is very clear considering the size. With Garmin Mapsource, (sold seperately) I have charted most of my trips, although to interface you will have to get a (reliable)serial to usb converter for most most newer laptops.
Very rarely the display goes goofy or drops entirely, but comes back when I punch the power switch. A USB cable is not available. (see my review)
This unit has been added to my arsenal and I've never looked back since. The optional bike mount is a "must", of course. Works fairly well in heavy tree cover, but is lost, as every other unit I ever owned, when you go under overpasses, through tunnels and caves. This started out as my geocaching main tool, but has now become a permanent fixture on my bikes.
