Battery Life (Approx. hours) Features • • • • • • • • FM/AM PLL(phase locked loop) synthesized radio with built in cycle-computer New ergonomic design Water-resistant for all-weather use 15 station memory presets (10FM/5AM) Easy Jog lever operation Easy to see backlit LCD Easy to install mounting kit included FM SENS DX(Distance)/LOCAL switch Precautions • Operate the unit only on 3 V DC with two size AA (R6) batteries. • Avoid exposure to temperature extremes, direct sunlight, moisture, sand, dust or mechanical shock. Never leave in a car parked under the sun. • Avoid continuous exposure to direct sunlight or extremely high temperatures to prevent possible damage to the display. The display will function normally again in normal operating temperature. • Display switching may become slower in cold climates. • Should any solid object or liquid fall into the unit, remove the batteries and have the unit checked by a qualified personnel before operating it any further. • To clean the casing, use a soft cloth dampened with a mild detergent solution. • Since a strong magnet is used for the speaker. Keep away personal credit cards using magnetic cording or spring-wound watches from the unit to prevent possible damage from the magnet. Cautions on Water-resistance This unit is designed so that it can be used with slight exposure to rain, snow and other forms of moisture, but there are several points on which caution should be observed. • Do not allow it to come into contact with large amounts of water. • Do not immerse it in water. • If water should get on it or if it should fall into water, take it out immediately and wipe it off with a dry cloth. To prevent the battery from corroding, wipe out the interior of the battery compartment as follows: – Open or close the battery compartment with dry hands in a place without exposure to any water. – Wipe off the battery and the inside of the battery compartment. Give special attention to the contacts so that no water remains on them. Notes on the cycle-computer radio • The user must obey all traffic laws when using the device. • To check whether the local laws allow the use of the device. • In order to prevent dangerous condition, do not operate the device when running the bicycle. • In order to prevent theft, take your device with you at all times. • In order to prevent dangerous condition, install the sensor cord properly so that it will not get tangle by the tire. (JEITA*) When using FM AM Sony alkaline size AA (LR6) 66 84 Sony size AA (R6) 23 31 4 Temporarily attach the Sensor to a fork using the attached Double-sided tape. Sensor * Measured by JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association) standards. The actual battery life may vary depending on circumstances of use. Replace the batteries When the batteries become weak, the sound may become weak or distorted, and “E” will flash in the display. After that, when the batteries are used up, "E" will light up and clock time display appears. And then the cycle-computer function will be stopped so that any button functions will not work. The Radio function will be also turned off if it is on. If this happens, replace the batteries with new ones. After the batteries are replaced, press RADIO POWER, RESET, or install the unit on the Mount. (“E” turn off in the display.) Note on replacing the batteries Do not take more than 5 minutes to replace the batteries, otherwise, the clock setting will be initialized. Should that happen, reset the functions. 4mm • When attaching, align the center of the sensor and that of the magnet (triangle mark). • Ensure a clearance not exceeding 4mm (except Sensor and Magnet touching) between the Sensor and the Wheel magnet (when aligned). • Attach the unit on the Mount, and then check the reaction of the sensor by revolving the wheel (See fig. “Install the unit”). 5 Notes on batteries • Do not charge the dry batteries. • Do not carry the dry batteries together with coins or other metallic objects. It can generate heat if the positive and negative terminals of the batteries accidentally come into contact with metallic objects. • When you are not going to use the unit for a long time, remove the batteries to avoid damage from battery leakage and corrosion. • Do not use different types of batteries at the same time. • When you replace the batteries, replace all with new ones. Installing the unit on the bicycle After determining the position of the Sensor, secure it with the zip tie to front fork and cut any surplus. Install the Sensor cord with zip ties such that it does not become tangled with the wheel. Zip tie Install the Wheel Magnet 1 Remove the screw of the wheel magnet and open. 2 Attach the magnet between two spokes of the front wheel with the head of the screw facing inward, and tighten the screw. Note Be careful that the position of the Sensor does not shift when tightening the zip tie.

Adjust the accurate size of the wheel using Jog lever + or - after measuring diameter of your wheel. It is recommend to set the wheel size in “mm” because the cycle-computer calculates in “mm”. If you set the wheel size in “mm”, the range is from 300 to 750 mm. Push and hold Jog lever to change the value rapidly. 3 Displaying maximum speed 1 2 3 5 5 Changing AM Channel Step Press ENTER/SELECT repeatedly to select your wheel size (inches). Each press changes the display as follows. Tuning in to a Preset Station 4 g Displaying average speed Press MODE/FREEZE repeatedly until “AVG” appears. Average speed is calculated according to trip distance and riding time. To preset another station, repeat the above steps. To change a preset station, preset a new station. The previous station will be canceled. Note If you do not perform a preset operation for about 65 seconds, presetting mode will be canceled. The cycle-computer needs initial set up before using. If the wheel size you set into the cycle-computer is not suitable for using actual wheel size, it is not possible to measure speed and distance correctly. 1 Press RADIO POWER to turn off the power. Press MODE/FREEZE repeatedly until “CLOCK” appears. Hold down ENTER/SELECT for more than 2 seconds until “AM 12” starts flashing. Press MODE/FREEZE repeatedly until “RT” appears. The “Hour: Minute: Second” is indicated in the display. At the point you want to start calculating riding time, perform the zero reset operation. For details on how to perform the zero reset operation, refer to “Performing the zero reset.” Push the Jog lever towards + or – to select the number you wish to preset, then press ENTER/SELECT. If a preset number you select with the Jog lever has an assigned preset station, "PRESET" appears; if no station is assigned, only the number flashes. When you press ENTER/SELECT, the selected preset number lights up in the display. The clock time display of this unit is a 12-hour system. When the batteries are first installed, “AM 12:00” flashes and “CLOCK” turns on in the display. FM SENS DX/LOCAL Follow steps 1 to 5 in “Playing the Radio” and manually tune in to the station you wish to preset. Hold down ENTER/SELECT until the preset number flashes. Using the Backlight Note If 99 999.9 miles (160 934.3 km) is exceeded, the odometer returns to zero. LIGHT When your bicycle is stopped with the radio off, and no button is pressed for more than 10 minutes, the cycle-computer enters Standby mode, and only the current time is displayed.

ENTER/SELECT : Pressing this button displays the current frequency. Pressing and holding selects the Station-presetting mode. TUNE/MODE : Pressing this button displays the current frequency. Pressing and holding selects preset station deleting mode in preset tuning mode. In manual tuning mode, holding down has no effect. Notes • If you perform a radio operation once in the current speed display and do not operate the radio again within 5 seconds, the display automatically returns to the current speed indication. • When the radio is turned off, the current speed display appears. When the radio is turned on, the current frequency is displayed. If you do not perform any operation within 5 seconds, the display returns to the current speed. • While presetting mode or deleting mode, the current speed display will not appear. After completing or canceling the presetting/deleting mode, the current speed display appears after 5 seconds.
