hoping someone can advise..

i have a a wireless speedo and a separate wireless HRM on my bike. When the HRM is off the speedo works brilliantly but when the HRM is on, the speedo is way off and also thinks the bike is moving at 4mph when im stopped at traffic lights!

assume it is down to a clash of wireless devices. is there anyway to fix other than only use one at a time?

    I would say its not a fixable issue with the two devices. Maybe with changing either speedo or hrm to a different one but that's not what you wanted to hear.
    I've had problems riding in groups with my wireless computer picking up signals from others wheel sensors.

    I have been using a Garmin 500 which whilst not exactly cheap I think are very good value for money compared to the more recent kit.

    A quick look around shows it available on amazon for £139 here http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002O0QBE8/ref=noref?ie=UTF8&psc=1&s=electronics You may be able to get it cheaper if you shop around.

    NB if you are tempted by the cheaper Garmin 200 note it does NOT have a HRM capability
