Hello

Does anyone know when or if SRM will release their new computer? I looked online and there is no news.

Just out of curiosity, where did you read that there could be a new PC on the way?

Other than upgrading the PC8's GPS chip so that it actually works and fixes on satellites, I don't know what could be improved in a new version. For straight up power metric monitoring, it does a pretty good job as it is.

I have had two PC8's and neither one would lock onto a GPS signal within five minutes of trying. OTOH, my wife's cheapy Garmin running watch finds a GPS signal in about 3 seconds in my front yard.

That said, it's not a problem for me since I don't care about GPS as I don't do Strava and I live in a very small place with no need for mapping or route tracking. For everything I want the PC8 is perfect.
