I have the 76S but would like to get the 76CSx one day. Auto-routing would
be nice to have.

I've tested the 76S with a T2-135 and showing the received position reports
as waypoints is way cool.

Does it have a setting for "fastest route" or "shortest route"? My 276C does
similar things.

If my 76S is too close to the wireless bike computer, the latter rapidly
attains speeds not capable on a human powered vehicle. There's just enough
space on the handlebar to separate them enough to keep the bike computer
behaving. The bike computer shows ride time. The 76S will show me "stopped" 
time as well.
