Needs Much Better Instructions – Wireless Bicycle Computer with 1.4-inch Display Reviews

posted by bjack on 10/23/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Hey, the price is great and this unit appears similar to many of the way overpriced computers one finds in the typical bicycling store.
Still working after a couple of years.
Cons:
I've had this for some time and still cannot figure out how to get it to calibrate properly. Thanks to another reviewer, there are images of the instructions which provide a chart for settings by wheel diameter. Either I am doing something terribly wrong or am able to cruise at 80kph.
The mini 12V battery in the sending unit was dead on arrival but easily replaced.
The receiver unit rattles a bit, which I suspect may be some sort of motion detector to save battery while not in use.
Other:
If there is someone out there who has figured out how to calibrate this computer I would be very grateful for step by step instructions. I know there are instructions in English, but I've had no luck so far.
Bottomline:
Looks like it works great, but my trouble getting it calibrated seems to limit usefulness to being just a timer.
Hope others have better luck.
