D J, London Sportive cyclist

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It is the best bike computer out there at the moment.
Bad points:
Not a cheap toy, but fantastic to have. Some may feel that a cheaper bike computer offers more value per pound and will be content without all of the features.
If you use the route calculater the battery runs out after 3 to 4 hours. You either need to bring back up power or only use that feature on short rides.

Very accurate for on road application , it is a great training partner providing great feedback on heart rates and cadence whilst riding. The training partner feature is perfect for trying to smash your previous best times on set courses.
