Okay, actually I loved my Garmin Edge 305 - until it wouldn't power up and now need to replace it. Played around with it a bit - charged it again, on then off, charged it... And it's working sort of.
So, I've been looking a new unit. Something on the order of the edge 500 - but is there anything in the same class/category (baro alt, hrt rate, cadence, speed) than Garmin? In other words don't need/want a map, color, or kitchen sink.
I'd just like to shop around a bit, surely there is some competition for them...
