I am using the speed sensor, but unfortunately I ride in a pretty open area of the state, lots of farms and very few overhanging trees, so rarely does my Garmin use the speed sensor. I can't comment on cadence since I have a Power2Max and it provides cadence data to the Edge. That said, so far I have not lost the signal from the speed sensor and as long as you wake up the sensor, I have never had a detection issue either. I wake up the sensors by rolling the bike out the front door then turning on my Edge.
