I love the Garmin Edge 705! This bike computer is awesome. It has GPS (which Garmin does best) and also has a heart rate monitor and cadence sensor. It is ANT+ compatible if you want to add a power meter. This unit is great because you can upload your data onto their desktop software as well as a website so other people can see your progress.
This product is simply awesome if you're serious about improving your cycling performance. The lap button allows you to track times for specific milestones along a regular route. Heart rate and cadence are nice data to have as well as the ability to immediately download your ride on the web. Haven't tried the virtual partner feature yet - seems pretty cool though. The GPS navigation feature, though, is what sets this apart from other less expensive cyclocomputers. The peace of mind it provides is worth it for the more directionally-challenged. Also provides quickest routes to a gas station (read: bathroom) during bowel-related emergencies. Suggest purchasing on ebay to save $$.
