I'm getting ready to start traveling and riding. So, I THINK I have decided to buy either a Garmin 500 or a Garmin 705. Whichever it will be the bundle with heart rate monitor. I also like a cadence meter to interplay with the heart rate monitor.
I've read just about everything I can find on them, including the never ending thread on Electronics on this Board. But, none have looked at it from the perspective of us "older folks" who are after function, not just a toy.

>Just how useful is the mapping function on the 705? I'd be using it mainly to find my way around strange areas on bike or car and to download things from sites like mapmyride.
