    I installed on a Win7 Pro system with no trouble, it auto discovered the USB drivers and the included installer disc for the software worked fine.

    Firmware updates are pushed to the device with the software too and that worked easily without having to read how to do it ( I'm an A level tech nerd though )
    Good to know! Has anyone done a Mac installation?

    I'd imagine with the anemometer the algorithm could subtract windspeed from road speed and use the difference as a factor in the power estimator.

    I never got my HAC-4 going, I could never get all the damned different batteries renewed all at the same time. Too bad ...

    For what it's worth, the Sigma Data Center software now includes a button for direct Strava upload that works very well. Don't know if that's enough for Sigma to compete with Garmin, but it makes it much more palatable to the folks that want to upload their rides...

    I was chosen as Sigma's test driver a month ago and I have since used Sigma ROX 10.0 GPS. I find the cycling computer to be of excellent value, especially if one already owns ANT+ sensors. I dislike Sigma's ANT+ speed and candence sensors as they are not integrated in to one unit. Also bar fly mount called The Butler is not as good as Garmin's because the computer is not leveled with the stem.

    One thing that needs to be considered before buying the unit is the Sigma Data Center software which is installed locally to your computer. All your data is then stored locally (bulk uploading to Strava is made very easy though) which can be either good or bad thing, depends on your ideology. I find the software to be actually pretty good (especially the mapping feature is best of breed), although a bit engineer-driven.

    Can this computer be used while plugged in to a dyno hub to keep the battery topped up for touring or long randonees?
