wait for the garmin 310 xt
I'd only wait for the 310xt if multisports and waterproofing was important.
TBH, if you are happy with the accuracy you've got already, I probably wouldn't bother, of course, GPS is more accurate, but its not spot on.
I think it is very easy to get caught up on the tech side of running and miss the simple fact that it's about getting out there and running! And, hopefully, having a good time whilst you do it.
That said, I've gone through a host of SDMs and HRMs, from a Polar Edge to Coach to 625SX then via a Garmin Forerunner 205 to a Polar RS800. Did not get on with the Garmin at all but have found that the Polar RS00 has ticked all the boxes for me. I've invested in the GPS dongle as well as the S3 footpod, using GPS when cycling. I can't imagine needing to upgrade and if it fell apart tomorrow would rush out and buy a new one. I find the footpod more accurate than the GPS - lots of trees and deep ravines do not do much for GPS accuracy. YMMV.
Most of the time I am just out running and use the Polar for quick checks of HR, etc. It's very useful for post-race analysis (to see just where things started to go wrong...)
