I bought this on the recommendation of a couple of friends (a coach and a Cat3 racer) who use the device. It was much easier to install on the handle bar mount than any other computer I have ever bought. The display is big and easy to read, and the ability to have multiple screens displaying as little or as much data as you want is great.
There are some quirks and a bit of getting to know you that goes into installing and using the device. But, I found a great YouTube video that walked me through the installation of this and the companion cadence device.
The device will also upload a ton of data to Garmin's site (no charge) that you can use to track your vital stats.
The other plus is that I have used this in the rain and it works just fine. The two weaknesses are 1) The magnet with the cadence monitor. On bumpy roads, it often moves just enough to mess up the reading. 2) The time it takes to find the satellites. I like to get on my bike and go, but often have to wait 2-4 minutes for it to find there satellites.
As noted above, I also bought the cadence monitor. Very easy to install. Also, I bought the heart rate monitor. Easy to use, comfortable, and syncs instantly with the computer.
All in all, it is one of the best computers on the market, especially if you can get it on sale!
Thank you for your feedback.
