Did you see the new Vapor? It does all that, and adds a tachometer, shift lights and water temp gauge. Very slick!

Endurance is low profile but with all good functions.
Lynx has bigger display and constant lit backlight when bike is running as well as the lap timing capability.
Vapor has the tach feature.
It is REALLY important to run the sensor cable properly so that you do not distroy it.
I pressure wash both bikes with no problems of the meters, do not even take them off.
Reliable if cables are correctly routed.

First the sensor expects to be mounted to the stock brake caliper carrier. When this is attached to the fork leg it leaves a gap into which the sensor can be slid and then secured with an allen bolt. If you use a Zip-Ty disk and carrier it mounts flush and the gap is gone. Need to machine a step into the carrier.
Second, I am running GYT-R mounts and a Pro Taper bar. The upper handlebar clamp is curved and the Trail Tech computer mount will not sit correctly because it is expecting a flat top clamp like the ones used with Scott steering dampers. The web site explains how machine down the leading edge of the clamp and mount the computer between the clamps.

they are cool and they are cheap. they are also durable. As many times as I've crashed (and hard I might say), it still works.
No downsides. Buy it cheaply and then get a low cost gps. You don't want to be in a position where you need one and don't have one.
