Strength:

Like having all info on one screen

Weakness:

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.

Would buy again, maybe upgrade to the 9.0

Strength:

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.

Weakness:

None

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