Vetta HR1000 ????

I got one of these on my Schwinn Crosscut . I bought a battery for it today and it works!! Now I've figured out how to set the clock , but does anyone know how to reset the trip meter without clearing everything with the AC on the back or taking the battery out ? kirby

Never heard of it. I was hoping it was some brand of bike and that you were going to post pictures.

I had one (well actually three as two were replaced under warranty). Never could get the HR function to work properly for more than about six months. Hopefully it will be better for you.

I didn't get the HR part, I just want it for speedometer , and route functions . It's smaller and less trouble than the handheld GPS I strapped to front stem . kirby

Well, except for the HRM, it worked like a charm.

I had two, very good units, IMO. I pulled the wire out of the mount on the first one, but both head units still work and the 'new' one is 6 years old. Mounted next to my Garmin even now. Speedo & heart rate.
