I download routes to my Garmin Edge 830, or sometimes I use the RWGPS iPhone app's voice directions. I put the phone in my jersey pocket and turn up the volume. The directions are easy to follow. One tip if you're going to use the iPhone app: turn off Wi-fi and Bluetooth, it will save battery power.
The 830 supports the Garmin iQ apps, you can get the RWGPS app for the device, it will show *some* of the saved routes you’ve created on the RWGPS website then download and allow a course to be followed. I state “some” as there’s a limit to what the app on the device can see, most recently created or pinned routes typically. It’s a really useful function, as good as the Wahoo/RWGPS system, IMO and is by far the easiest method to get a RWGPS Route onto a Garmin.
