    Chinese sensor compatibility

    Has anyone tried using one of those generic BTLE and ANT+ sensors on ebay? I'm wondering if my Year 10 Lezyne micro c GPS would recognise it.

    BT is questionable. That protocol is probably present mostly for phones, anyway. Most bike computers that have BTLE don't use it for sensors, anyway.

    However, ANT+ is not. As I understand it, ANT+ protocol has more reliable compatibility between sensors and head units. If the protocol is present on both devices, then they should work together.

    I had two of these on a road bike for speed and cadence to use with a dumb trainer before getting a smart trainer

    They’ve worked fine. I’ve since moved them to be speed sensors on my bikes and have them paired with my garmin. They have BLE and Ant+. They can be speed or cadence.

    I had one unit that was dead on arrival, but the seller promptly sent me another.

    I ordered one of these. I'll report back if it works with Lezyne y10.

    Should work without issues since you have ble and ant+

    I’d suggest manually setting the circumference of the wheel for the most accuracy once you get it paired

    Ive tried a few different chinese sensors. The sunding ones will connect, but constantly disconnect rendering them completely useless. Same problem with the BT003 speed can cadence sensor. However, I have a couple of CooSpo sensors that work great with the Lezyne Y10 GPS. None that Ive tried were the magnetless type. I actually have one from gearbest sitting in my garage somewhere, but I have yet to install it.

    I got everything hooked up via ANT+ without any issues. Did a short ride and did not record any drop out or disconnects. Quality seems decent enough.
