What is the best bicycle sat nav for long distance?
Something ideal for cycling 1000miles and back. Something that wouldn’t have to rely on a phone if it dies.
And nothing too expensive?

Just use your cellphone with a GPS app you like (e.g. Map my Ride, Waze, etc). You'll need to charge it, of course, after a day. But if you shut off extra power wasters like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and turn off the screen it should last OK. That's what I use. Why carry two gizmos?

OldHippie - I appreciate your feedback!
So all of them require a phone whilst cycling?
I was looking at the Lezyne mega XL but it needs to be connected to a phone.
I’d be using a powerbank of course..

You're asking for something that does not exist! After a full day of riding all GPS bike computers need to be recharged. I don't know of a single one that would go over MAYBE a day & a half. I use a Garmin Edge 'Touring Edition' model. Pic blow. After a 4 hour ride today, it was down to about 75%. I found a refurbished one on $ALE for $85.00. That's dirt cheap!
The lowest priced (new) Garmin with map capabilities is about $ 249.99. https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/611996 Even from Wally World (Walmart) the lowest priced one is $209.95. And it states: Battery life: up to 15 hours. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Garmin-Edge-520-Plus-Bi...
Who knows what's "Too Expensive" by your standards? You didn't give a price. To a millionaire, $200 is a drop in the bucket. To me, $200 is a big hunk of change.
