do you need a speed sensor with a gps unit? Do you rely on the GPS to measure speed? Probably can't do real time I would think.

Chunk, check this guy's website out. Probably the best product reviews I've ever seen!

I've used his stuff to help in picking a few different things out.

Only time I know you need the speed sensor is when you lose GPS signal.

However if you want Cadence (aka pedal RPM) you will then have to have it, for which I would recommend it.

The GPS speed is real time and go have show your overall avg speed both stopped and moving. It is a very useful tool..

there's still a sensor. When the gps loses signal it can pick up speed from the sensor. Plus you can use the sensor on your trainer.

good info. I just dumped my Sigma Rox 9.0 because I want a GPS unit and the damned Sigma speed sensor doesn't fit properly on the bladed fork right. I see that the Garmin speed/cadence sensor is a combo type that goes on your chain stays. Good deal!

I like garmin the best also, I have the edge 305 with cadence and speed sensor. First time I was driving to a ride it was in my car I freaked out and thought it was broke because it read 50mph, I was like dam I'm not even on the bike yet. And then realized, oh duh its gps and reads the sensor on your bike plus gps. Don't tell rick though.

Also I cracked the screen and they sold me a refurb (which looks and works like new) for $75, I just had to return my broke one.

Plus the garmin connect website is the bomb for having all your rides in one spot, with each mapped and easy to share or go back to later.

I picked up a refurbed Edge 705 a couple of seasons ago with the cadence sensor and HR monitor. On my first ride I didn't clip it in complely. and spent about 5 minutes swearing at myself looking for it on the side of the trail at Palos before I found it.

So I guess I'm saying it's not complely idiot proof

They are very nice. Multiple bike profiles, auto pause when you are not moving. If you have done the same course before you can race against a previous time. HR Zones and as mentioned Garmin Connect is nice.
