A wireless bike computer that will allow you to time a segment without affecting your overall trip data.
The VDO M3 WL Cycle Computer is an excellent option for those riders concerned about receiving instant and accurate date on their rides.
Many pure GPS based devices will operate with a bit of a lag, but cycle computers give you the immediate data you require namely average speed and current speed so you can train to maximum effect.
The M3 will do all that and a bit more all on a crystal clear display.
The large " Bike" button at the bottom of the unit allows you to cycle through average speed, maximum speed, section time, section distance, navigator, temperature, clock, trip distance and ride time. The large “Set” button at the top will take you back through these options.
"Set and Bike" button together will launch the ability to time a new segment. This segment time can be isolated whilst you are riding without affecting the overall stats for the ride. So you can time individual sections of your ride without the worries that it will stop or damage the recording of your overall data like average speed and distance travelled.
Speed Comparison will display up and down indicator arrows which appear if you are currently below or above your average speed.
The Navigator function allows you to set a distance and the counter will count down or up and this done independently from the overall trip data.
There is a low battery and low transmission warning indicators.
Data is stored on the unit between battery changes.
Same unit can be used for two bikes.
There is a Temperature read out.
The M3WL is Slash proof.
Tyre table for setting the tyre size.
Display sleep mode after a five-minute break.
Auto start/stop when continuing after a break (with motion sensor).
Twist-click bracket for handlebar or stem mounting.
This is a decent enough bike computer. Clear display and waterproof and works wireless. I tried a cheap wireless one a while ago and it did not work but this one does which is good for my folding bike. Instructions could be a little better but if you just go through the functions yourself on the computer it is quite easy to figure out.
