Cateye Velo 8

Hey guys, I bought a cyclocomputer Cateye Velo 8 on the internet, but I can't seem to find its model (CC-FR8) on google and the Cateye website? What's the difference with what's in the website, those who also have that one or this one? (CC-VL810)

I did a search on "cateye velo 8 bicycle computer cc-fr8" and it took me to a page with links on this model as well as the cc-vl810. I downloaded a zip file with the instructions for this computer but the web site won't let me upload it as an attachment. Here is the link to get to the instructions. Hope this helps.

I can't seem to get the right file since the download link leads to a zip as it gives a random installer of some sorts, so I ignored it...
Can you instead upload the pictures of what you saw? Thanks

By the way, have you owned or at least known the Velo 8 posted on their website? Since you saw the manual, how do you think this unit compares to the other?

I've never owned that cyclometer and don't offhand know of anyone that has. I didn't actually see the instructions, I just downloaded the zip file for you after clicking on the link that I sent you. Sorry that I can't help you more than what I have. Are you having issues trying to set the computer up? From my experience with wired Cateye computers, most of them set up pretty much the same way. You may want to see if you can find the instructions for the CC-VL810 and try using it.
