B’Twin GPS SatCount+ - in brief review£129.99

Cut-price GPS unit

BikeRadar score3/5

B’Twin’s GPS unit is bulky and wobbly but offers tons of data at a great price. Simple, fast set-up gets you into essential data displayed in big, easy-read digits with a backlight for night ops. It’ll sync with B’Twin’s discount ANT+ speed/cadence (£17) and HR straps (£30) for full bike and biometric data too.

You can study sessions and download routes for the directional arrow/distance-to-next-turn function via the user friendly myGeonaute site and updated software has made Strava uploads a lot easier. Rechargeable battery life is good too, and Decathlon has a great customer support reputation if you have problems. The only irritation is that the rubber strap mount can’t be tightened enough to stop it wobbling on rough trails. It’s a bargain if you can cope with that though.

Freelance Writer, UK
Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
