Easy bike computer recommendation

I am looking for a simple wireless computer with these features. Easy to read, setup and use.

Odometer
Trip distance

Current speed
Avg speed
Max speed

Clock
Ride time

Temperature

Auto start and stop

I have the Planet Bike 9.0 Protege wireless, which matches your criteria. There is a wired version too.

Once in awhile, I get funky max speed numbers (likely due to wireless interference).

There might be other good choices.

Planet Bike Protege 9. I always recommend wired comps, NOT wireless, it "Just Works" - if you look around for anyone having trouble with a computer, 9 times out of 10, it's wireless.

Setup is about the same as for any of them. Display is relatively large, clear and uncluttered for all that there's a lot of info on there.

This.

I have two of these computers on different bikes, and they've performed flawlessly.
