Stages L200

    Thinking of getting a cycling computer. Previously had an Edge 800 and twas great.

    Looking at the Stages L200 as it's cheap and large. Would be using it mainly for basic stuff like GPS & maybe a bit of turbo training. Are the workouts any good on it, i.e. easy to program/setup?

    I don't have a powermeter and use mechanical shifting so don't need Di2 compatability. Will it work with any powermeter just in case I get one down the line.

    I note it's a USB 2.0 port. Slow I suppose whereas the new Edge 840 USB C?

    Does the L200 have something like ClibmPro?

    Are the maps as good as Garmins?

    It seems to be a good device however it looks like it is missing some nice to have features that are on the others that you mentioned just out of curiosity is there any particular reason you want to switch away from Garmin?

    To be honest having watched the below video I'm not a big fan on how it displays maps compared to the others also it only displays climbs when you have a route loaded whereas the others now display climbs without having to have a route loaded. Personally, I am going to get a 540 this summer because I think it is the best bike GPS head unit for most people of this current tech generation.

    The above video is good in going through the differences between the units from Garmin and Wahoo.
