I don't care about color or touch screen and don't want or need routable maps. I just wanted a computer that could track my rides, had programmable screens, and could transfer my data to someplace else. For all that, the 130 was the right choice for me. In fact, it does a fair bit more than I was looking for.

sdmc530, I couldn't see small screens, either. I added Hydrotac +2.50 stick-on bifocals to my riding glasses. Bazinga.

I have Oakley sunglasses with bifocals already....getting olderer sucks
