    So I fitted the badass box to my bike, but no matter where I place the magnet the speedo always changes/drops at 10.1mph, isn't it supposed to get to 15.5mph before it drops and shows half the true speed? Also the speedo never gives the same reading as the GPS speedo on my phone, I'm getting sick of messing with it and seriously thinking of ditching it and getting the speedbox 2 instead, that one shows the true MPH at any speed.

    Just read the small print on the speedbox and apparently it only shows kph accurately not mph, so I'll stick with the badass for now and wait until something better comes along.

    after a while you wont even bother to look at it other than what mode you are in and how much batt is left.

    just load strava on ur phone and use that if you want to record data ;)

    I don't need to look at what mode I'm in I only use one mode, it's been on turbo since I got it I haven't even tried the other modes yet. I'm not fussed about data just like seeing how fast I'm going, I guess I could get a cheap basic fixed speedo.

    the motor could cause electromagnetic interference why i got a wired one.

    try it you never know it might work or it might not.

    They're cheap as chips so worth a shot, I'll chuck it on one of the kids bikes if it doesn't work.

    My Badass 3.4 doesn't display half my speed as it should. It is supposed to read normally until 15mph and then suddenly half as the speed increases. But mine doesn't. Its a shame, but I'm not overly bothered. I might buy a speedo as you are considering, an one with a clock to tell the time would be useful.

    Mine get to 8mph quite quickly, then moves slowly to 10 or 11, then stops.

    it should keep going up after 10mph mine just goes back to 5mph and then rises so when im at 15mph im going 30mph.

    you could try take the batts out the lcd to reset it and try that but it should not just stop?
