Pretty good price on Garmin 305

$267 w/free shipping. Just thought I'd share.

This is one reason why I find it dangerous to hang out on BF too much. I tend to have a lot less money. Many, many, more "essentials"... but less money.

I just bought a FR305 for $259.99 from Amazon. There is a rebate offered through May-15 for $50.

Got a link? Amazon is currently listing it for $269 and no mention of a rebate. That would be an awesome deal.

Its only 4" x 3" lol . I use a state map , cheaper and easier to start a fire in a jiff if needed.
Maybe someday when Garmin and the others get the system really working good , and fred
friendly I might get one.

Agreed....my Garmin never worked right out of the box and Geoman sent me a new one quickly and without hassle. Great service. (not a shill....others here can back this up).

EDIT: least expensive shipping option = $10.30, so make that geoman price $247.30 shipped...

EDIT #2: oh yes, and of course, there is the sales tax one must declare on such purchases...

Was it with HR and cadence? If so, that's the cheapest Ive seen, and Ive been shopping. I hate to shop at Wal Mart but at the time I was looking, they were cheaper than everybody. Beat my LBS by over 150 bux. My BS owner says he pays Trek 300 per unit. I says he's gettin' screwed.

You have to add it to your cart to see the price. Outstanding.

Will the 305 allow me to view Cadence, Time, Speed, and Heartrate on the same screen? The pics on the Garmin site don't show cadence.
