You can mount it on your handlebars where it is easily visible from a seated, riding position.
You can upload at least two of the following three items into the unit: routes, waypoints & track logs. Of these track logs are probably the most valuable.
The unit will also display 2 of the above 3 items on the screen. Track logs being the most important.
Unit must be able to accept a .GPX file (we email out .GPX files about a week before the event).
Yes, I think so. I've not used MotionX-GPS on my bike, but it fits those criteria. It obviously accepts a GPX and will show tracks and waypoints. Not sure about the support for routes since I've never tried it, but perhaps somebody else will chime in on that.
