Pros: Multi-sport, decent satellite reception, fairly compact.

Cons: Difficult to read on the bike, no real navigation capabilities, no elevation profile screen that I could find.

Recommendation: If you're a biker AND a runner and you want a single GPS device then go with the Forerunner. It's great for running and passable on the bike, though it won't help you find your way on the trail like other units (the Edge 605 and GPSMap 60).
