Garmin 500 Bundle, $199 w/free shipping, worth it?

I'm looking for a good computer for my new hybrid. NASHBAR has the Garmin Edge 500 Bundle (Includes: Edge 500, bike mount, speed/cadence sensor, heart rate strap, AC charger, USB cable, Users Guide on disk, Quick Start Manual) for $199 shipped. Is this a good deal? There are so many computers out there, I want to pull the trigger on one w/o second guessing myself.

Pretty good for that bit of hardware. Great deal if it does everything you want. Lousy if it doesn't, for example, waste of money if you want to see where you are on a map.

Looks like this one is not qualifying for the 20% discount. $200 would be a very good deal.

I used a 500 for several years. I liked it. It got run over or I might still be using it.
