My Specialized computer went bonkers yesterday while I was riding. Started flashing random speeds in the speedometer area first, then it just flashed strange characters. I tried all the tricks from a reset to the battery replacement on the unit and the sensor (wireless) but no luck, still doing the electronic lambada on the screen. Went to the LBS and got a Cannondale IQ300 wireless simple computer (just like my brain, neat huh?) and got it programmed and mounted while I ate my lunch sandwich. Rode with it this afternoon, had to adjust the sensor's placement on the fork for the distance from the magnet. Got that sorted, finished the set up with the calorie estimator units and my weight inputted.
I did some research before I purchased the IQ300, found pretty good reviews for it. I like the simple functions, single button functions and compact size of it. Now time will tell if my choice was a good move. thought about upgrading the unit to a Garmin 500 or 800 but I just don't need all the bells and whistles. Made that decision last year when I was deciding about an iPhone. Hope this unit lasts me a while, even though it was inexpensive.
