This is a long one, but I wanted to be thorough :).
Hi. Thanks for the review. I noticed in one of your video shots that the 750 had a white background with black numbers & letters. I was wondering if there is a choice between white & black backgrounds. I have the 860 that has a black background and visibility is an issue in many lighting situations. I like the unit but with the reflective screen and wearing sunglasses, it is often difficult to see the display. I was also wondering how the text/phone alerts are displayed. On the 860 they appear and then disappear quickly. They are easy to miss.… Read more »
Yes. You can flip the background color via Settings : System : System Settings : Meter Color Mode (Day / Night / Auto).
I wouldn’t say that app notification disappear quickly, probably on screen for several seconds, but I didn’t time it. If it would be useful, I can add this to the list of features to dig into more detail around when I do the follow up video.
Yes, please add text/phone alerts. I would like an option to keepnthem on screen until I dismiss and an audio alert when they appear. Thanks for your response.
Will do. There is no option to keep them on screen or interact with them at all in the current firmware. Which is a gap vs something like a Garmin, where you can even respond to text messages with some predefined options.
Thanks. I just want to be able to read it before it disappears. On the bike, as you know, there can be distractions.
Absolutely. Gotta prioritize :).
