    Cateye Padrone+ issue

    My new Padrone+ works, but changes screens randomly during a ride, and occasionally resets the distance back to zero mid ride. I cant see any external difference between its mount and the one on another bike that has a Padrone (not a +), and the mode buttons on each appear to function identically.

    Any ideas on what might be wrong, or what I can check?

    Electrical interference?

    Is your cell phone mounted near it? Do you have a light running at the same time?

    I used to have a phone mount on the bars that interfered with my Cateye Microwireless.
    My NiteRider light also interferes with it.

    In my case, the speed was affected which of course altered the overall distance. It never reset the distance. I do not remember if my screens would change.

    Since the buttons are technically on the back and are activated but pressing down on the face of the computer, it is possible to hit it during a ride and change the screen. And if you lean against it for more than 5 seconds it will reset to zero.

    Not the greatest design ever.

    Meh, I had the MicroWireless that also changed screens by pressing down. In the 3000 miles of use I never accidentally bumped it to reset or change screens.
