I ask partly because I'm considering getting a Forerunner 305 (Not the Edge, 'cause I want to be able to use it off the bike as well. I'll probably purchase the cadence option separately.)
Why mine does: All my bikes have a bike computer (although some might have duplicate mounting hardware and share the comp) but when I go on long trips I also like having the GPS (and I much prefer a mapping version). So my touring bikes all have computers AND brackets for the GPS. Since they are both mountable, I just always take both along on the big trips.
(I currently use an older Magellan Sprotrack Pro (because it just deos everything I need), but am like upgrading to Garmin etrex Vista cx, or Map 60Csx prior to the annual summer trip across WI.)
