Date Reviewed: September 24, 2008

Strengths:    Like having all info on one screen

Weaknesses:    Developed an electrical short in the mount and quit working. Was easily fixed with a pc of electrical tape on the 3rd contact. Just isolate the bottom contact from the one on the case it will work just fine.

Bottom Line:   
Would buy again, maybe upgrade to the 9.0

Strengths:    NO SWITCHING FROM SCREEN TO SCREEN. Can see speed, and current trip distance and timem, on the same scree at the same time. Easy operation with auto start/stop. To reset, just push computer forward in its cradle and hold. Push forward once to switch from ODO to clock.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
The best computer out there. If this one breaks, I'll buy Protege 8.
