For those who have left the Wahoo ecosystem and gone to Garmin, need some feedback. The Wahoo ROAM has been an awesome road computer but is horrendous for MTB. The GPS reception is terrible, Wahoo customer service is useless in troubleshooting, and I am generally fed up with the system, and looking back at my Wahoo BOLT the GPS graphs were much the same, whereas my Garmin friends have perfect tracking for GPS and segments on Strava.
On road this isn’t really a problem, but when I MTB I want to have fun and chase segments, and due to the poor GPS tracking, the Wahoo gives me credit for doing segments I haven’t done, and misses ones I rode. It short changes me on speed/distance, and often times shows me riding through the lake that I rode next to.
Now I know the grass is not always greener on the other side, and Garmin have had their share of issues, and I know the initial setup is generally a pain, but the last time I used a Garmin device it was an Edge 500. Looking for some feedback from the group here who have more experience than I, what’s your experience been with the two systems? I don’t do outdoor workouts, but I do use the navigation for new routes, and enjoy live segments on the road as well.
Thank you gang, any tips/feedback appreciated
