Why no compass or altitude on Rider 550?
I've been using my rider 550 for a year now and I'm generally pleased with it and over time I've learnt how to use it as the tool I require rather than have it dictate routes etc. It has never been as intuitive as the unit it replaced, which had IGO software and none of the gimmicks I can happily live without eg the 'plan a thrill' option. But what I am missing tho' is the compass and altitude functions - why aren't these basic functions included, surely such fundamental info should have been included on a GPS navigation tool? Even the basic satnav in my car has these functions included.
