According to the information at Utah Trikes, the Villager comes with a "left mirror/computer mount". You are expected to mount the computer on the left mirror stalk. That puts it in easy distance for using a standard length wired computer. Even the most basic models will keep track of your cumulative mileage, a daily mileage, maximum speed and average speed for the daily mileage. All it takes is pushing one button at the beginning of each day to reset the daily mileage and elapsed time. I've given away a few of these inexpensive Sunding computers in the past and never got a comment they didn't work or weren't good. https://www.ebay.com/itm/154141550217 $8.45 from a California seller on eBay. The same computer imported from China with about a 3 week delivery time is $4.64 https://www.ebay.com/itm/132311786303 I usually buy from the overseas source when I buy them as gifts.

One strange thing I encountered was trying to use a wireless computer on my CT700. It wouldn't work with the computer mounted high on the trike next to the front derailleur and the sensor on the sensor mount supplied by Catrike with the trike. Apparently the frame was right in the way for blocking the signal as the computer works perfectly well on a mountain bike.
