Garmin Edge 500 compatibility questions?

I am about to buy a Garmin 500 Edge but wanted to verify that it works with the following items:
1- Windows Vista (home computer)
2- Bontrager Duotrap speed/cadence sensor.

Any feedback regarding both items is appreciated. Thanks in advance

Vista: Yes. Check the garmin web site for system requirements to use their web-app that lets you transfer data between the Edge 500 & their web site (connect.garmin.com). TrainingPeaks and Strava have something similar, and most systems will mount the Edge 500 as an external USB drive so you can transfer ride files that way as well.
Bontrager Duotrap - if it is ANT+, probably. I think dcrainmaker tested this - yes he did. And it "just works".
