Strengths: Reliable, 7 memories, great display
Weaknesses: sonic data transfer dependent on good mic. averages speed over 10secs, so you can be sitting at the lights and it's still reading 27kph. No graphing, just trip averages. Can't display ODO or max speed without stopping it and looking at totals/files

More important than an XO rd, xtr crank, or fox 100 X. Polar. I am looking at 3 models, obviously in the header. Here's my dilemma: I'm afraid that if ... Read More »
Just got this unit new and have it all set up but have one question. I have it set up for my road bike and my mountain bike. I don't think the manual is too clear on the exact proceedure for switching between the two bike settings. What is the exact proceedure for going from one bike to the other? A ... Read More »
