Nike Triax C5 heart rate monitor

I was wondering how many of you have one of these (Nike Triax C5 heart rate monitor) and what is your opinion(s) of this paticular Nike HRM?

Does it have problems with interference from other HRM or does it have Digital Transmission? The Nike website contradicts itself on this. It says that it does in the Cycling section of the website but in the Timing section it says that it does not have digital transmission. I would like to use it at the gym and on the road in groups but I don't want to get one that will have problems with interference from other HRM.

Thanks.

I have that monitor, and it has served me very well. I must qualify this by saying that it's my first HRM, so I have no basis for comparison-- but I have used it without incident-- alone and in group rides.

I'd certainly buy it again.

Thanks for the reply, Jashue.

I saw this thread, HRM and wireless Cat Eye interference, and I wonder if I will have the same problem with the Nike Triax 5 and my Cateye Wireless.
