I found one on ebay for crazy cheap (new in box, 216 for the whole kit... normally they're 350 so yeah, I was worried ha ha)
Anyway, the thing's great but it's goofy. it keeps auto-pausing in the middle of a ride. I was cruising around at about 17 mph on Tuesday and it kept pausing. what? I did change the auto pause to pause when I get below 1 mph but I'm going to turn off auto-pause if this keeps up.
Today, i went for a short post-lunch spin of not quite 6 miles just to get the rust off, and my phone GPS (all sports GPS app) says I went 5.88 miles. Garmin says I went 5.05 miles, that's a pretty large difference. It was locked on from minute 1 so there's no reason for that large of a discrepancy.
It also kept displaying the wrong speed - I'm going 19 down a slight hill and it would say I was going 0 for a second or two, or maybe 9 mph. Very disconcerting.
And then on my final hill of the day, a nice 15% grade according to the front of the display, it kept pausing even though I was managing about 7 mph up the hill.
Anybody have any idea what's going on? I have the cadence / speed transmitter installed and I had to kind of tilt it over to get the thing close enough to the crank to sense my cadence, which put the wheel sensor so close to the spokes that I had to flip the magnet around the other way. (the seat stays are curved a lot and run very close to the wheel)
except for inaccurate data, I love it.
I really want to use it in stead of my phone for a variety of reasons (battery being one of them, and my phone GPS receiver is sometimes sketchy)
Any tips or advice are welcome, thanks.
