    New strada wireless need some help

    I just installed my new strada and it does not work. It does not read either the mph or the cadance. I think I have everything as close as they want it. Could I just have a weak battery? Any thing I might have missed in the set up? When I set the ID the number was flashing is that normal?

    Thanks
    Brian

    how close is the magnet to the sensor? Does the magnet pass near the read spot on the sensor. Can you at least cycle through the modes on the computer?

    Sounds like the ID number was not set. You're supposed to change to the ID mode, hold the computer 12" away from the sensor, and press the reset button on the sensor. When the ID is set, the display moves to the clock setting mode.

    I have had to do this several times to get it to work. Sometimes I manage to set the ID and don't really know how. Sort of strange. It's nice when it works.

    If this wasn't completed, then the computer will not work.

    I have found that pressing the button on the sensor and holding it for a complete second or 2 will get the head unit to read.

    Also, I have found out that this computer is suspect to interference from an in-home wireless setup. Mine will not work unless I have the headunit approx. 10 inches away or less from the sensor.
    You can't fix stupid.

    Steve that just might be the problem when I try to set it all I get is a flashing id number. FDR I will also try to set it outside away from my home network.

    Thanks

    At the risk of embarrassing myself... make sure you have the sensor the right way round. This is probably obvious to most but it was completely against my intuition to put the battery cover on the outside (where it can be seen, and of course, accessed) and the writing on the side nearest the magnet.

    bought this for an indoor trainer, mainly for cadence. disappointed with the smallness of the display overall, the extreme smallness of the secondary display, and the fact that i cannot make cadence the main display. as you get older & the reading eyesight worse, this matters .
    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?

    One.

    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
