night vision

Hi everyone,

Need some advise on a computer that can be viewed while riding at night. I live in Tx and it is to hot to ride in the day, so I ride mostly at night. I am tired of aiming for street lights to check my progress on my current computer. I checked out catseye but can't tell if their back light is really bright enough to see anything. Help

It is but it shuts off after a while and you have to reach in back of the unit and press the yellwo button to turn the backlighting back on.

Really annoying, I got rid of it.

Having to press buttons on the back of the unit while riding? What kind of friendly user interface is that? Guess the engineers have it all backwards and didn't test the computer out on a bike.

Blackburn Delphi computers that have the night light have a large light button at the front vertical face of the computer. That'll probably be easier than a button on the back.
