Gps

Can anyone recommend a speak turn by turn GPS. I still don't know my way around the area and would like to hear the GPS direct me out and back?

I would think your cell phone would be the easiest. I know Google Voice, Vlingo, and Siri all do it.

The cyclometers don't have voice, as far as I know.

I wish they did, that way it could yell at me to pick it up.

Sometimes a headwind is really a tailwind, and sometimes a tailwind is really a headwind, to your development. Deep Thoughts.

I think Garmin is coming out with a model that will fit the bill for you. It's called the Edge Nagigator 2000

Suunto will sell you a watch that lets you know if you're cheating on your fitness goals.
