Wasted my small amount of money – Wireless Bicycle Computer with 1.4-inch Display Reviews

posted by IanJC on 04/23/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It was cheap easy to set up (except auto) easy to install
Cons:
It goes bannans when I turn on my headlamp. Its OK on full beam but low beam and flashing it does crazy stuff. It rattles, not just the motion sensor but the mount is two parts and they rattle too, even without the computer attached. It doesn't have a stopwatch, the most basic of all functions. It claims you can have "Auto" On/Off but there is no way to turn Auto off and so I can't even use the trip timer as a stop watch (My priority is to measure elapsed time and you can't do that. You can only measure Trip (moving) time. Ideally I'd like to do both). it has no backlight and you can't read it at night unless you wear a headlamp (on your head) (and then it doesn't work anyway) It loses the odometer reading when you reset or replace the battery.
Other:
It doesn't look waterproof but I'll avoid testing that until I replace it.
Bottomline:
Good Christmas Stocking filler for your 6 year old.
