Computer w/ Backlight...does one exist??(4 posts)

Computer w/ Backlight...does one exist??SJT
Oct 15, 2003 5:05 AM
I currently have a Sigma BC 1400 computer which works fine, but is a pain in the a$$ to read when riding at dusk/night. In my quick search of computers I haven't been able to find one that has a backlight or Indiglo function which would be great. I've seen a light that you can mount next to the computer, but that is dumb and a waste of handlebar real estate. Thanks in advance for your help.

My Specialized Speed Zone Pro has a backlight.
Avoid cordless models if you have HID headlightDMoore

I have a couple of cordless Specialized computers that have a backlight built in. I thought they would be just the ticket for night riding last year. Unfortunately, they just don't work with my NiteRider HID headlight. Some sort of stray electronic radiation from the light interferes with the cordless computer. I had to dig out an old (Performance) wired computer with a backlight.

Otherwise, I like my Spec computer with altimeter, temp, etc but the backlight is useless since I can't use it at night with my headlight system. Oh well....
