Nice but has flaws

This is a nice unit. Screen is not too big, sensor is a little large on the fork. Altimeter is okay, doesn't give actual elevation but elevation changes during the ride. I would like to have actual elevation as well. Temp gauge is a bit off, I was riding one brisk morning and it was about 36 degrees outside, the temp gauge was reading 50 degrees. It was definitely not 50 outside.

Now the biggest flaw I found with the unit is interference with the wireless signal between the display and the sensor. While riding with my Niterider Lumina 600 headlight on, the display would constantly display 0 mph. The EMI from the headlamp completely jammed up the signal. Once I turned off the headlamp, it resumed working. I resolved this by moving the computer down to my top tube.

I thought all was well after separating the two, but while out on a nice afternoon ride, I noticed my computer was reading 0 mph again. Further investigation found that my bluetooth speaker I have mounted on my frame was jamming up the computer. Once the speaker was off, it would start working again. I moved the speaker further away from the computer and it resumed working.

All in all, I feel like there was not enough design effort put into the unit to ensure that it would work with common items found on bikes. Come on, a headlamp! A little more engineering effort would of ensured this wasn't an issue.
