Flawless function

StarStarStarStarStar Upgrade from 8.0

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Cost differential of about $5 well worth the upgrade from 8.0 and seems to be more durable and heavier duty.

Cons

Only time will tell as it is still early; but so far, so good.

Other Thoughts

Am partial to Protoge I suppose as a creature of habit after using them for a few years. Am too lazy to climb learning curves to adapt to other models.

StarStarStarStarStar Stands the test of time.

Highly recommended. This computer lasts! Where my other computers have given up, wires broken or eat batteries like a child's toy, I have one computer that is over ten years old. The cable is heavy gauge wire that takes a beating. Simple to operate with all the needed features. The mount holds the computer tightly so that I have never had one fall off. Battery life is exceptionally good, over a year with daily use. Temperature is a nice feature when touring.

StarStarStarStarStar Old Reliable

Pros

Dependable; easy to troubleshoot. Reliable and trustworthy readings.

Cons

Just have to manage the cable to avoid kinks and cuts

Other Thoughts

The other wireless model upgrades that I allowed bike shops in Oregon to sell me in 2014 led me to wonder if the sensors were set correctly or if the battery needed replacing after it took several minutes and about a half a mile for the readings to kick in. After months of frustration, I missed the Planet Bike 9.0 sorely, and reordered one. Am a happy biker now, as I have one installed on both my road and mountain bike.

StarStarStarStarStar It's simple

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

simple easy to read display. Doesn't try to give you too much information. I have used earlier versions (wired) and just like the simplicity.

Cons

The center stem mount isn't firm enough to hold the unit while changing modes. You push the entire computer to change displays.

Other Thoughts

Still like it better than most wireless computers.

StarStarStarStarStar The best ever

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Easy set up, digital wireless, Temperature!

Cons

Battery only lasts 4-6 months

Other Thoughts

I love this computer because the wireless does not get fooled by traffic sensor loops at the traffic signals. The set up is easy. I can use it with two bikes. The temperature function is the bomb!
