I just picked up a Garmin 305 (GPS and heartmonitor). Seems cool. Anyone using one?

Most any Garmin is cool. I'm on Garmin nüvi 200W, and loving it.

Yes, I just picket up the Edge 305 myself. The Edge 305 is for cyclists, whereas the Forerunner 305 is for runners. But I strap the Edge on my arm for runs, and it works great.
A friend who also uses the Edge signed up for Garmin's MotionBased online service - which supposedly lets you share your workouts with others...overlaying your runs/rides on Google Maps. But MotionBased requires the use of Adobe SGV, which I've found doesn't work with Windows Vista. That's my only gripe.
I love the device, though. I find myself riding longer and more often because I can see the numbers (heart rate, distance, speed, etc.) as I ride. And if you're training, the ability to compare runs/rides to previous runs/rides is great.

I've got a Forerunner 301, eTrex Vista CX (for geocaching) and a StreetPilot (320?) in my car - they make great products. Can't wait 'til spring comes and I can run outside again!

Those sound pretty cool, although I do not own one myself...
