No reason to feel guilty in any way. I assume you mean DI2 (fancy shifting)? I would never go back to mechanical after using DI2. Life is short- enjoy.

Good luck with your Garmin 520. I've used Garmin for years including the 520. I recently switched to the Wahoo Element Bolt for ease of use, and battery life and couldn't be happier.

I run 50/34 eleven speed with 32 on rear (normally). In Thailand I run a 40 rear cassette with a road link. Yes, sounds strange a 40 cassette on a road bike but common here.

Back in Florida cycling. Too funny, the temperature was 51 degrees this morning, and the locals had their down filled jackets on. A fun 48 mile ride with the sun warming things up nicely.
