Garmin 305

Whats the best software for logging and mapping your runs? I have heard that the software provided by Garmin has outdated maps and you have to pay $100 for all of the benefits of the Motion Based site. I know there are some 3rd party programs (SportTracks, Mapmyrun.com) that can work with the 305 but probably have downsides as well. Any suggestions for the best one to use when I get my watch this week?

    SportTracks is a sweet piece of software.  It and Garmin Training Center were the ones that I used on Windows.  My main computer is a Mac, so I was overjoyed when I discovered a program called Ascent.  It's favorably comparable to SportTracks. 

     

     

    I found MotionBased useful, but not worth the $$ to me.
