Preface
GB
MC
1.0
Thank you very much for buying a VDO MC 1.0 bicycle computer featuring an altimeter. The more familiar you get with this model, the more enjoyable your
trips are going to be.
Hence, our urgent request:
Please read thoroughly all the information provided in this manual. You are getting important and useful hints for operation to make you fully benefit from all the
technical features of your VDO MC 1.0.
We wish you enjoyable trips and rides on your bike with VDO
CYCLE PARTS GMBH
Important information about the altimeter
The altitude calculation works by measuring barometric pressure. Your VDO MC 1.0 converts the data of current barometric pressure into the respective altitude.
Depending on the barometric pressure (weather) different altitude readouts for the same location may be displayed. That these barometric changes do not
reflect in your altitude readout, your VDO MC 1.0 features an easy-to use barometric pressure re-calibration (see chapter 6.1.3)
Accurate calculation of altitude requires the precise determination of home or basis altitude.
To process barometric pressure data, there is a hole drilled into the bottom of the housing of your VDO MC 1.0.
This hole must never be clogged or taped over.
Please do check on its cleanliness regularly and free the hole carefully if needed.
You must never poke a pointed instrument into the hole.

1.Mounting
GB
1.1 Mounting cable sensor and magnet
MC
1.0
Important: mount the sensor first, then mount the wired handlebar holder as described under 1.2
Check the following while mounting:
a.
Distance between the sensor and magnet: 1 to 5 mm
b.
When mounting the sensor on a suspension fork, don’t forget to allow extra length for the cable. WATCH OUT: cable may tear
step 1: Loosely attach the sensor on the fork leg with cable ties (do not tighten yet).
step 2: Mount the magnet on a spoke. Adjust the magnet to the marking on the sensor (distance 1-5 mm).
step 3: When adjustment has been done finalise mounting by tightening cable ties and clamping magnet.
P1+P2
1.2 Mounting wire and VDO “any-size” handlebar holder
step 1: Run the cable up the fork, pass it around the brake cable from the already fixed sensor to the handlebar.
Use the enclosed cable ties or duct tape. Spiral the wire around the brake cable (this has proven to be the best solution).
step 2: position the holder on the handlebar.
step 3: feed the fixing clamp through the slot below the holder socket, pass the clamp around the handlebar and tighten it with a small screw driver.
Do not overtighten, the plastic screw might be damaged. Readjust the cable so that it will not be stretched during steering.
Finally tighten the zip ties holding the sensor.

Wheelsize 1 WS1 = 2155 mm wheel circumference
Wheelsize 2 WS2 = 2000 mm wheel circumference
Warning: After a battery change the above defaults are automatically applied. After a battery change, you have to re-enter the precise values for your bike(s).
2.5.1 How to determine the precise wheelsize
Place the front wheel of your bike with the valve at the bottom, mark this position with a line and push your bike ahead until exactly one rotation of the front
wheel is completed. Draw another line where the valve now is. Take a ruler and measure the distance between marks 1 and 2 which reflects the
wheelsize = wheel-circumference. The figure measured (inches or mm) is the wheelsize to be entered into your computer. see fig.
P8
If you have selected MPH readout you must enter your wheelsize in inches. Hence, altitude is displayed in ft and temperature in °F.
If you have selected KMH readout you must enter your wheelsize in mm. Hence, altitude is displayed in m and temperature in °C.

2.7 The NAVIGATOR
GB
MC
1.0
The NAVIGATOR is a second, individual trip distance counter that can be:
• manually reset to zero
• preset to a certain value, the trip distance is then counted from this value.
The NAVIGATOR is very helpful following road book instructions or tour suggestions of bike magazines.
For example, your road book tour wants you "to go straight for a mile and then make a right turn, then go on for half a mile and make a sharp left turn".
These instructions can be precisely followed by using the NAVIGATOR. Once you have arrived at the first intersection after the first mile, you reset the
NAVIGATOR to zero and and follow the next leg for half of a mile. At the second intersection you reset to zero again and follow the next instruction of your
road book.
The NAVIGATOR can be preset and proceed from this individual value. For example, you are unable to start your tour at the point 0 km/m, but at 5.3 km.
This value can be preset / entered into the NAVIGATOR. The NAVIGATOR will then count on from 5.3 km. Should you have made a wrong turn, return to
that spot and enter your leg distance anew, continue to follow your roadbook instructions
2.7.1 Presetting the NAVIGATOR
Step 1: MODE 2 calls NAVIGATOR into display
Step 2: Press MODE 1 for 3 sec. The lower part of the display alternetely shows "ENTER NAVIGATOR" and "000.00" with the last digit "0" flashing.
Step 3: By pressing MODE 2 you increase the flashing number, by pressing MODE 1 you jump to the next number 000.00, etc.
Step 4: Once the NAVIGATOR is preset, exit setup mode by pressing MODE 1 for 3 sec. The display shows NAVIGATOR and the preset value.
Your VDO MC 1.0 will be counting on from this preset value.

6.1.1. Significance of the home or basis altitude
MC
1.0
The altitude calculation works by measuring barometric pressure. Your VDO MC 1.0 converts the data of current barometric pressure into the respective
altitude. In order for your VDO MC 1.0 to indicate altitude and climbing precisely, your home or basis altitude must be entered before. The current
barometric pressure is allocated to the home altitude entered. Changes in barometric pressure due to weather changes require a re-calibration (= changed
barometric pressure allocated to home altitude).
Your VDO MC 1.0 features the easy-to-use ALTI-correction (see chapter 6.1.3). Based on this this new home altitude (=changed barometric pressure of
start location) all further measurings are calculated.
For your home altitude you enter the altitude of your start location (i.e. home) which can be obtained from topographical maps or inquired for at nearby airports.
Changes in barometric pressure are only converted to altitude climbed when speed impulses are processed at the same time. This avoids changes in
weather conditions reflect in changes of the gained altitude indication.
Accurate calculation of altitude requires the precise determination of home or basis altitude.
To process barometric pressure data, there is a hole drilled into the bottom of the housing of your VDO MC 1.0.
This hole must never be clogged or taped over.
Please do check on its cleanliness regularly and free the hole carefully if needed. You must never poke a pointed instrument into the hole.

6.1.2. Setting up / entering your home or basis altitude
GB
MC
1.0
Step 1: By pressing ALTI call TRIP ALTI in the display. Push MODE1 for 3 sec ENTER HOME ALTI TUDE and its previous value will be displayed.
Step 2: By pressing MODE2 the previous value is increased. Hold down the button to quickly scroll. By pressing MODE1 the previous value is decreased.
Hold down the button to quickly scroll. Display capacity from -300 to +6000 meters / -984 to +19685 feet.
Step 3: Once you have entered your home altitude, terminate set-up by pressing ALTI for 3 sec. TRIP ALTI information will be back in display. Depending
on the home altitude entered the actual altitude may read out differently.
6.1.3. Re-calibrating the altimeter to absorb changes in barometric pressure
Changes in barometric pressure make your VDO MC 1.0 change the readout of the current / actual altitude. This new readout may differ from the value you
have determined for your home altitude (= same location but changed barometric pressure). So before you go out for a ride, readjust the actual displayed altitude
to your home altitude. The easy-to-use re-calibration feature allocates the changes in barometric pressure to the home altitude you have entered.
Step 1: Get TRIP ALTI in display
Step 2: Press Mode 1 for 3 sec will bring “ENTER HOME ALTITUDE in Display
Step 3: Press Mode1+Mode2-button for 3 sec.
Automatic recalibration of actual air pressure to your home altitude setting will be done, after that the display will show TRIP ALTI again.

6.2 Correction of actual altitude
GB
While you ride, the airpressure changes due to your gain in altitude as well as due to a wether change.To correct that influence of the wether change you
can also adjust the actual altitude display at your MC 1.0.Should you see a sign indicating actual altitude and should this altitude differ from the display
readout at your MC 1.0, you can manually correct the actual altitude.
MC
1.0
Step 1: Get any of the ALTI-informations in display
Step 2: Press the ALTI-button for 3 sec, the display will show “ENTER REAL ALTITUDE” and the actual value of the altitude.
Step 3: MODE 1 will decrease the value , MODE 2 will increase the value.
Step 4: After you have entered the corect real altitude, you leave the setting procedure by pressing ALTI-button for 3 sec.
