CatEye Double Wirless W/ Cadence help!!!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

CatEye Double Wirless W/ Cadence help!!!

I have a Cateye Double Wireless W/ Cadence CC-CD300DW and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to reset the timer and avg. mph for riding sessions. I looked over the instructions and still cannot figure it out. I would like to know these statistics to measure my progress as I am a beginner of sorts. If anyone can shed light on this please post. Thanks in advance!

Hold down the Mode 1, Mode 2, and the start/enter buttons at the same time. This will give you a fresh start before each ride by performing this task.

The start/enter button is the one that is at the bottom edge of the unit.

The trick is to hold the buttons down and RELEASE them simultaneously. It's the simultaneous release, not the press that does the reset. The manual is clear as mud on this point; I googled the issue when I couldn't reset mine. FWIW, I press Mode 1 and Start/enter only to accomplish this.

You only need to press the Mode 1 and Start/Enter simultaneously in 'normal' mode.

While in Mode 2, the same applies, but it's a good idea to stop the timer or it'll resume counting after you've zero'd it out with the Mode 1 and Start/Enter buttons.

I press the Start/Enter first then Mode 1 and it resets. Seemed like when I tried to do it simutaneously it wouldn't.

Try pressing Mode 1, Mode 2, Start/Enter, and Lap at the same time. That's right, all four buttons at once. It took me a while to figure it out, but that's the only way to reset the timer on mine.

The LAP button will record the lap number, average cadence, average speed, distance covered, and the cumulative time that the lap was completed in. You will have to do the math to determine each lap's time of completion--in other words, whether it took 'x' amount of time to complete each lap or whether you started to speed up on the last laps or slow down.

Just what I was gong to say! I had even gone to Cayeye.com to copy the link before I noticed you beat me to it.

It's on page 17. See attachment.

What??!?!! You couldn't find it in the 50 page manual??!!?! By far, that was the most time-consuming part I had to deal with during my build last year.

This manual is extremely poor.
1. font size is micro
2. display letters are not given a meaning. ["letters" look like cut numbers and are hard to read]
3. flow does not work and many operations loop and do not return after pressing enter
4. cateye help does not get out of voice mail mode and messages are not returned

Design of automatically going to E after 27 hours is wierd.

Ability to force into sleep mode without waiting 10 minutes is not documented and I can't remember how to do it.

Beginning to wonder if garmin would have been a better choice.

I was thinking Garmin too! I already have this one, As I progress in cycling, I will have a Garmin sitting on my bars! The Cateye is very nice though. If anyone has seen this instruction book, They will COMPLETELY understand

I have to laugh...all of us have been through this...Crap design on some functions. To reset press and hold the Start/Stop then press (hold) button 1 (on left). You'll see the datasets reset like any other computer (clearing the trip specific data).

If you still can't get iot, or get frustrated then deploy computer as a hockey puck, or just ship to me to dispose of properly....

I have a Garmin GPS and its control organization and manual layout is no better. It's all standard-issue Japanglish, but if you can figure out a VCR manual you can figure out a Cateye.

Unless you buy Apple, pretty much all electronics manuals suck.

I think the fine print in the manual said to rub your stomach with one hand and tap your head tap with the other. All of course done simultaneously.

I'm going to get my bike out of the car and give this a try. I too have pressed all the buttons in every conceivable combination with no luck. I usually end up in some lap mode with the cadence set on max(256??wth?). The guy who wrote that manual really should actually try to use the product once in a while.

I just want to have a trip mileage; oftentimes I forget to check my initial mileage. Why can't the Cateye be as simple as resetting the trip odometer on a car?

Funny how many different combinations have been suggested on this board.

Whoa! It worked! I did the "push all the buttons and release simultaneously" option. IIRC, the manual simply says to push the Mode 2 and start/enter buttons at the same time.
