Any 3-line Bike Computers w/Cadence?

I'm in the market for a new bike computer for a new bike, but I cannot seem to find one that fits what I am looking for: At least 3 lines showing speed, cadence, and one other selectable datum (like time or distance). My current computer (Echo J12) has this, but I have only been able to find one other remotely close -- the cateye cd300dw. The problem with this computer is that it is wireless, and does not work at all when my light is on, and is a bit flakey when I am wearing a HRM.

Are there any other computers out there that I should be looking at that have 3 lines including cadence?

My new double wireless Cateye CD300DW has all that and more.

I have had it now for close to a month and no issues. I really like it.

The cateye double wireless was my first attempt. However, it did not work at all when my light (Niterider digital pro 6) was on, and it was a bit flakey when I was wearing a heart rate monitor.

I have to say that I have not had any troubles wearing my HR monitor (which I wear about 80% of the time) and the functionality of the CD300DW. But that is good information pertaining to the light. I'm curious how it is going to function when it gets REALLY cold. And that time of the year is coming.

If you're using an HID headlight and wireless computers / HRMs, the trick seems to be putting your headlight on your helmet. I had the problem with interference between my HAC4's wheel signal and my bar-mounted Lights n' Motion ARC HID Li-Ion, but no problem with the HRM. I moved the light to my helmet and no more interference problems with the wheel signal or the HRM. Moreover, I discovered that having the light on my helmet works as well on-road as it does off-road. You have light everywhere you look, to include down at your computer, off to the side of the road, and at your bicycle in the event you need to fix something. In retrospect, I don't have a clue why I felt that my headlight "needed" to be mounted on my road bike's handlebars when I never put it there for off-road night rides, i.e., it was just a stupid habit.

I have the same computer and I absolutely love it. 9/10 for me.

Thanks for the link -- funny thing is that I just that exact vendor and computer a few days ago and placed the order.

The Trek Fusion C has cadence, is wired, and can show speed, cadence and current time (or ride time) simultaneously. Not impressed with the quality, though. There's no "tab" to release the head from the base; it's just an interference fit. Thus, you tend to hit both buttons (resetting the trip data) when you push the head off the base. Also, it's not very water resistant; I had one head go flaky on me after a hammering rainstorm; it was, fortunately, covered by warranty.
