Hey guys, I have a Cateye Velo 8 right now and it is lacking. The main problem is it resets everything except the odo without my permission. I'll go for a ride, and the next day all the info is gone. So unless I check all the info after a ride I have no idea how fast I went, how far, etc. Do your computers force you to reset ride data? That's what I would prefer.
So I checked many of the computer and Garmin websites and they don't inform you if resetting data is automatic like the Cateye or if I have to reset everything.
I'm sure there are phone apps that do what I want but since I travel internationally, my phone won't work on foreign roads and I don't want to vibrate it to death.
So does a bike mounted device exist that does the following?
Odometer (that doesn't reset when the battery is replaced)
Two or more tripmeters (handy for multi day adventures)
Average speed of a ride (until reset by user)
Average speed for life of the computer/bike (until reset by user)
Max speed of a ride (until reset by user)
Max speed for life of the computer/bike (until reset by user)
Elapsed ride time (until reset by user)
Total time ridden for life of the computer/bike (until reset by user)
Pace +/- indicator
Calories burned on ride (until reset by user)
Calories for life of the computer/bike (until reset by user)
lit screen option
Since most computers already have a clock, I would think a calendar associating to rides wouldn't be hard to program.
Ideally there would be a date/timestamp of all rides and info could be downloaded via USB to make charts and graphs.
So do you computers do a lot of the above? Perhaps you could copy my list of wants and answer yes or no to them.
Thanks for the time.
