2 Sigma BC2209 Computers on Tandem? or close proximity?

Hi and thanks for your time.

I'm considering buying 2 Sigma BC2209 Computers for a road Tandem,
would you know if there would be crosstalk, or has engineering solved it?

Cheers!

They should work without interfering. I only have one for the stoker but these are digital transmitter using the ANT+ protocol. You can always send an email to Sigma USA and ask them. Someone actually replied to me when I asked about the range of the BC2209. :-)

Another alternative, you can get 2 Garmin 305's on Ebay for the same money. You can pair both Garmins to the same cadence speed sensor, and each one to a different heart rate strap.

That will give the functions of the Sigma plus GPS.

True as long as one's willing to find a place to charge the battery every night. ;-)
