    Anybody else have a db4LW computer that resets wheelsize automatically?

    I can't quite figure this out... in order to set the wheel size, you have to reset the computer, which means zeroing everything out. Yet somehow my computer seems to periodically chose it's own wheel size... and doesn't zero out.

    This is a wireless comp... so perhaps it is getting reprogrammed???

    And there is no way for me to check on the setting... the only way to see the setting is... you guessed it, reset it.

    Suddenly I am just going a lot faster than I would usually for similar conditions... of course my average speed goes up too... real ego booster... until someone else flys by and resets my reality.

    Hmmm... I've never had this problem with mine. Sounds defective, perhaps you can get it replaced.
