The 305 is definitely enough if you just want to map your rides, cadence, speed, heart rate, elevation and a few other things.
The 705 with the ANT+ protocol is very nice, when you want to combine it with a ANT+ powermeter like from Quarq, SRM or Powertap.
I also bought my 305 at geomangear and haven't had any problem with the hardware after about 2000 miles of riding.
