    Al.Fisherman, thanks!

    The cycle computer is a generic one, I think. The store I bought it from just re-branded it under their name. As for the GPS, I only used it to calibrate the cycle comp. After trying various wheel sizes, rode 10k's to make sure it matched up.. was spot on.

    Al ........... Hey? Quizzical look! S.A. is the dumping ground for old stuff and Chinese rubbish, the good Chinese stuff is hard to find! I have three bicycle "computers" 2 of them are okay and work whereas the third one has a tendency to "crash". The first two are very nice The one uses a wire from docking station on handle to sensor on the fork which is triggered by a magnet attached to the spoke. The other is "radio" from the sensor to the computer. The "computer" is removed from docking station or handle bar when in use. to prevent getting stolen at shops etc.
