    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
    Road: Trek 5200
    MTB: sold
    Hybrid: bought and sold few, still researching

    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.
