    Anyone use 2 ANT+ cycle computers at the same time?

    I currently use Bontrager Node 2 cycle computer, which uses ANT+. I'm looking to buy a Garmin Edge 800. I would like to use the Node 2 to keep an eye on my speed/cadence, while having the Edge to record speed/cadence, as well as additional data so I can upload it to Garmin & Strava.

    So I was wondering if anyone successfully used 2 ANT+ wireless cycle computers at the same time?

    Yup, it works fine. I've had as many as four, for giggles and to compare the computer's recordings: Garmin FR60 on wrist, GlobalSat and Bryton on the bars, Sony Android with ANT+ receiver in back pocket.

    ANT+ sensors (for speed/cadence, HR etc) are simply transmitting data and any number of computers can receive their coded signal. The 'pairing' process only occurs at the computer. The sensors are ignorant of which computer(s) have paired with them.

    I've done the Node and the Forerunner combo before and had no issues.
