Suunto Cadence POD (sensor) - any good?

I've got a Sunnto T3C HRM and was thinking about getting the cadence sensor as an add on. I use my HRM on most rides so buying this will be a bit cheaper than getting a decent computer with a cadence monitor.

Is it any good? How well does it integrate with the watch and is the display easy to read? eg; is it possible to view current HR and cadence on screen together?

Thanks in advance

    Don't think you can do current HR and cadence on same screen.
    Cadence is displayed at the bottom of the speed/distance screen as an option which can change by pressing bottom left button.
    I have mine fixed to rear chainstay rather than the seat tube the guide recommends and it works fine, always showing a reading.
    I have found that the novelty of a cadence sensor has worn off a bit now (I'm not that serious!) and after having one a while you get to know what cadence your pedalling at without referring to it all the time but if it's important to your training then it's a good addition.
    I have road bike pod, cadence pod and pc pod and I'm happy with how they all work.
    Download more data than I know what to do with with the pc pod easily to the training manager lite (free) which is pretty easy to interpret.
