Best Current Price, Edge 305?
What is the current best price for an Edge 305 with HRM and cadence and where to buy? Any coupons? When I bing or google, the prices are all over the chart and some are way outdated like $400.
If you're shopping from the US, there are some pretty good deals by online shopping in the UK because of the changes in the exchange rate.
Check out http://www.wiggle.co.uk/ . There's also an additional discount for signing up for their newsletter. There was no tax and shipping was free (spend over $75).
I've been personally eying the Garmin Edge 500 which is supposed to have a better battery life.
I just picked up a refurbished unit from Amazon w/ HR and Cadence for $175. Generally don't like refurbished electronics, but Garmin's warranty is 1 year whether it's new or refurb so it's hard to lose. Can't give impressions since it hasn't arrived yet.
Second choice would have been an Edge 500 from wiggle @$279, but the Garmin forums have numerous reports of problems with the 500 crashing when using Courses and corrupting ride files so I didn't chance it. Battery life is better though, and it's ANT+ so it'll work with a power meter if that's important to you.

$75 w/HR if you can still find them in stock at a Best Buy.
