Going Garmin

I'm tossing out the bike computers... I've been running my Garmin Forerunner 205 GPS unit side by side with my bike computers on a couple of bikes. I've decided the Garmin GPS is the way to go. The set-up I'm using shows time, pace (speed) and distance. You can configure the unit with max speed, average speed and other options. With the GPS unit, there is no need to select a wheel size and there are no wires. You don't use a magnet or anything on your wheel for that matter. Just put the GPS on a handlebar bike mount and your set to go. I like the elevation and GPS waypoint position marking options also. I've already marked the elevation on the Ohio, Highwood and Ramsey Hill climbs.
