No.

It's a basic GPS computer with a monochrome screen. No maps. It's probably smaller than the photos show.

There are non-GPS cyclocomputers that are wireless.

These do require a sensor. The sensors are typically zip-tied to the fork or rear chain stay. You didn't mention you didn't want that.

No, they only saw "GPS" and ignored all the other stuff.


There is no reason to ignore all the other stuff and assume he is looking for a GPS. And complain about other people making assumptions...

Mounts come with the computers not with GPS units (so, you have that backwards). It's...
