Does anyone have this combination? Do the ay-ups interfere with the computer?

Have seen rave reviews of strada, hence the choice.

Ayups and Garmin 705 no issues, but the signals are digitally encoded.

The AyUps don't seem to generate any weird interference. I have both a Sigma DTS Wireless and a NiteRider Rebel 2.0 Wireless. WIth both of those computers, my NiteRider UltraFazer caused havoc. With the Rebel 2.0, when the batteries in the light got low it would start messing up the readouts and show me going 40km/h while I was stationary, and it would show me going 0km/h when I was moving.
With the Sigma DTS, even with new batteries in the UltraFazer light, it would prevent the wheel sensor from even pairing with the head unit. If you left the light off during the paiting sequence, then swithed it on, it would instantly kill the head unit readout (and it would read 0km/h and refuse to work until repaired).
The AyUps have no effect on either of these Wireless computers.

Same here and the Edge 305 before the 705. I also had a cheapo Union-XW comp from Torpedo 7 before the Garmins. No problems with the Ayups and interference at all.
n = 3 for now
