    Lezyne Mini GPS - thread...

    Been using Cateye Velo 7's for last couple years & they're a bloody solid (but basic) unit.

    Only issue I've had with them is the wired part of the unit i.e. I've had one die, for no apparent reason o_0

    Another, when I chest bumped it - whilst implementing an emergency trail side stop... the part that houses the Interface part, fractured >.<

    So, I bit the bullet & got a Lezyne Mini GPS.

    Looks like it's got more than enough features (to confuse the heck out of me) to keep me busy.

    Plus, it's amazingly small!!

    Will post my experiences here jic others are thinking of getting one.

    Purchased from Merlin Cycles for $130 nzd [worth about $50 of your us $$]

    ;-)

    Really diggin the Micro GPS...

    Battery life seems consistent w/ the 14 hours run time, per charge claim.

    Very unobtrusive on handlebar.

    Weather proof i.e. mud & water.

    Being able to sync via phone app & see data straight away is pretty cool.

    Still working through all features.

    Biggest issue for mind is how small the unit is i.e. I'm scared I'll lose it somewhere o_0

    Really diggin the mini gps ^^

    Gives me all the info I'm interested in.

    Weather proof as well.

    How small it is... is still my only concern i.e. putting it down somewhere & forgetting where o_0

    NB, for my neck of the woods... I'm getting 8-9 hrs running time. So, I'm charging it every 3-4 rides. Which is fine (until I forget).

    The app feels a bit clunky. Using web site is the way to go, if you want the nitty-gritty.

    For the price it can't be beat =)

    I picked up a lezyne mini gps because I needed a new HRM sensor (lost old one) and Speed/Cadence sensor (new build) and the Loaded HRSC kit was the same price as the two sensors alone. Score. Lucky I picked it up since my Super GPS is out of commission and needs to be replaced. The mini is working well in its place, but I do miss the larger screen and more data fields per page. Lack of barometer and glonass hasn't been an issue. But I do notice the backlight sucks on the mini compared to the super. Much harder to read at night. All in all, its a real good value IMO.

    Yeah, if you need to look at data whilst riding - a bigger screen for sure.

    Good for us tinkerers ^^

    I do not have a speed sensor and noted that under tree cover, the speed reading drops by about half. Wonder if others have the same experience. I did a software update a couple of weeks ago.
