do i need a static route on my asa 5505?

I'm setting up a new asa 5505 on a T1 circuit. I'm going through the startup wizard and at the static route screen, do I need a static route if all it's doing is browsing the internet?

Sorry thinking of routers:

route interfacename (most likely "outside") 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 next-hop-ip-of-ISP

Yes, it that is leading you to the internet.

Soulja is correct in that you only need 1 catch all route that goes outbound to your ISP gateway.     You would only ever add additional static routes to the inside or DMZ addresses if there are routed subnets through those interfaces that are not directly connected.
