I too have a Cateye wireless, and I can't read the insanely small designations on the bottom of the screen. So I have trained myself to look at the bigger numbers near the top of the screen, and deduce what phase I am in. If I see 6.25, I guess that's the miles; if I see 01:20:05, I deduce that this is elapsed time; if I see 11014, this is probably total miles ridden since day one. Why don't the engineers who design these things make the designations bigger for us old farts? Also, with Cateye, some of the numbers are so close to the edge of the screen, it is hard to read them. The Cateye unit itself works great -- hasn't missed a beat. From now on, it's wireless for me!
