which garmin model?

Need to adapt a street model that accepts routes and has bluetooth. It does not need offroad routes or waterproofness. Pricd under $250 woukd be great too. Used to be you got a nuvi 760 and were done but now its too complicated. What the new replacement?

Garmin

I'm still getting by nicely with the low-cost Garmin Nuvi 205. I've had it for five years or so and never any problems at all.

Are "tracks" the same as "off-road routes"?

I retired my 2610 and need a replacement. Doesn't need to be waterproof, but I would like to be able to use tracks.

No. Tracks are where you or someone else has been, as recorded by the gps. Routes are where you're planning to go.

A bit simplistic but that's essentially the difference.

I came from a 2610 also. I learned to use tracks on a 60csx coupled up with basecamp and citynavigater software and maps for my laptop. I download other people's tracks to my basecamp and can transfer them to my GPS. Or I can use basecamp to draw my own tracks onto the map and transfer that to the GPS. Then I ride it and save my actual tracklog to replace the one I drew.

I use a Montana now, but the 60csx was plenty good enough. You can find them used for around $100.
