I just bought the CS300. The manual says to mount the magnet a max of 4 mm from the speed sensor. However, with the diameter of my front fork and the distance of the spokes from the fork, there is no way I can get even remotely close to the max distance of 4 mm while keeping the sensor somewhat parallel to the magnet. If I put the sensor on an extreme angle, it seems to pick up the magnet, but the speed and distance does not seem to be even close to my gps readings. Was anyone able to get the speed sensor within 4mm? If so is it parallel or on an angle. If not, does it still work with a larger distance (1/2"-1")?
I did contact Polar and they stated that it had to be 4mm.
Anyone ever try a stronger magnet?
