For Fast Calibration of your Micro go to Cateye Micro Calibrate.
For Quick resetting or your Cateye Micro Clock go to Cateye Micro Clock Setting.
A bicycle computer measures your distance travelled by counting the number of revolutions of your wheel and multiplying this by its circumference. You mount a magnet on a spoke of your wheel and a sensor on the fixed frame; this counts the number of revolutions of your wheel. You tell the computer the circumference of your wheel/tire--this is what is meant by calibrating it. Once the computer knows the circumference of your wheel--the distance you travel in one revolution--it can tell you your distance travelled and your speed (by how long it takes you to travel that distance, using an internal clock). So installing a bike computer requires mounting the magnet, sensor, and computer to your bike, and calibrating the computer.
Here we'll describe in a little more detail the Cateye Micro Wireless display and some of the other features and settings.
The Cateye Micro Wireless records six different measurements as you ride: your current speed, your average and maximum speeds, an elapsed time (a trip time), your distance (a trip distance), and a total distance for the bike (like a vehicle odometer). It also has a time-of-day clock.
The current speed is shown by the big number on the top of the display. The remaining measurements are displayed by the smaller numbers on the bottom, one at a time, and you cycle through them using the MODE button. They are displayed in the following order:
Elapsed Time or Trip Time (Tm)
Trip Distance or Trip Odometer (Dst)
Average Speed (Av)
Maximum Speed (Mx)
Total Odometer (Odo)
Again, use the MODE button to move from one number to the next.
The Cateye Micro Wireless has two modes of operation, an Automatic mode and a Manual mode. On Automatic Mode, the computer will record all of the measurements whenever your bicycle is moving. On Manual Mode, you use the START/STOP button to start and stop recording. Note that in Automatic Mode, the START/STOP button simply has no effect.
To turn Automatic Mode on or off, press the MENU button to enter the Menu.
Press the MODE button twice to reach the Automatic Mode option. A small AT will flash in the upper right corner of the display along with the word "Select."
Press the START/STOP button to toggle between "On" and "Off."
Then press the MENU button to save your selection.
Press the MENU button again to exit the Menu.
The Cateye Micro Wireless allows you to record two sets of measurements. Both sets are recorded simultaneously, but can be reset individually. This might be useful for recording measurements for a leg of a trip, while simultaneously recording measurements for the entire trip.
To display the second set of numbers, hold the MODE button down for two seconds. A small number 2 will appear before the the digits displayed at the bottom of the screen.
To reset or zero either set of measurements, while displaying that set of measurements, simply touch the MODE button and the START/STOP button simultaneously. (This requires just a little bit of a "touch.")
The Cateye Micro Wireless allows you to store two different wheel circumference settings labeled A and B. This is useful if you share the computer between two different bikes with different sized wheels or if you swap between two sets of wheels on a single bike.
To choose your A or B setting, press the MENU button. A small "A" and "B" will show in the bottom left corner of the display along with the word "Select." The currently selected setting will be flashing.
Press the START/STOP button to toggle between A and B.
Then press the MENU button to save your selection. Your selection will then be flashing.
Press the MENU button again to exit the Menu.
To set the wheel circumferences, first select either A or B using the previous steps:
Press the MENU button. Press the START/STOP button if necessary to select A. Press the MENU button to save that selection. "A" will be flashing next to the word "Select."
Then press the MODE button to get to the circumference setting option.
Press the START/STOP button: "A" will appear on the left because it is the currently selected wheel, and the lowest digit of the circumference will be flashing.
Press the MODE button to advance the digit to the desired digit.
Then press the START/STOP button to move to the next digit and repeat until you have set the entire number.
Then press the MENU button to save the circumference setting. Press the MENU button again to exit the Menu.
To set the wheel circumference for B, first select B, then press the MODE button to get to the circumference setting option and again set each digit for the desired circumference.
The Cateye Micro Wireless Menu has six options to .
It allows you to choose between wheels A abd B.
It allows you to set circumferences for both A and B. (The initial set up in response to the RESET button sets the circumference for A only.)
It allows you to turn AUTOMATIC mode on and off.
It allows you to set the time-of-day clock.
It allows you to reset the total distance or "vehicle odometer" (which you might want to do if you change the battery, initalizing the computer with the odometer value recorded before you removed the old bettery).
It allows you to chnage the speed display between Km/H and MPH.
And it does all of these things in the order in which I've just presented them.
You can do each of these things one at a time, in this order, or you can press the MODE button to skip over any setting and get to the next option.
To begin, press the MENU button, the gray button on the top right looking at the back face of the computer.
1. The first thing you can do is select which wheel preset, A or B, you would like to use. A small A and B is displayed in the lower left corner along with the word "SELECT." The currently selected wheel size (A or B) will be flashing. Press the START/STOP (bottom) button to toggle between the two wheel sizes; the circumference values for each will be displayed. When your choice is displayed on the screen, pushing the MENU button (around back) will select it. The display returns to the little A and B beside the word "SELECT" and the selected one will be flashing. To summarize, when you press the MENU button, the first option that appears allows you to change the wheel selection, A or B. The currently selected wheel size flashes. You can change the current setting using the START/STOP button as a toggle and pressing the MENU button again to save the selection. If you do not want to change the current selection or you are finished making your change, press the MODE button to move to the next setting option.
