Unfortunately I probably need to wait until August to keep riding to justify a new computer and the power pedals, since my wheel isn't ANT+ I can't really upgrade separately, needs to be the full $1000 at once.
I just switched from my powertap yellow head unit to a Garmin 520. The powertap interface and features are way better than garmin. Things like auto ride start/stop at stoplights, and explicitly having to 'save' or 'discard' a ride. Also, the powertap is easy to cycle through display items (watts, avg watts, 20 min peak watts etc...), with the garmin I can't do this while riding.

Of course the garmin shows speed when I don't have my PT wheel on, which is the main reason to switch., but the interface of the Garmin 520 is so clunky I wouldn't buy another.
