Advantages or disadvantages with wireless? Is it worth the $$$ difference? Thanks.

Works well, doesn't have wires (which I hate), has confusing instructions, good features, can't figure out how to check the clock without re-setting. overall I think it compares favorably with the Speedzone that I have on my other bikes.

I've had mine mounted on three bikes over the past two years. For the extra bucks, you get a clean set up, easy use, clear display, bullet-proof system and transportability (with added mounting kits & sensor kits). The transponder is very sensitive, so you can use different magnets (for bladed spokes) and set it up a comfortable distance from the spokes anywhere on the fork blade. The drawbacks are that you'll need two batteries (one for computer, one for transponder) and the transponder is rather large.

Its nice not having wires to mess with. I found mine a little tough to set up with the magnet on the spoke. Had to play with it for a while before I got it to register.

The clock was nice, just hold down the left button a little longer than usual and the clock come up.
