Polar CS 200 CAD

My CS 200 CAD has a gremlin, when I came back from yesterdays ride, and checked the file, it told me I had cycled 23 miles at an average of 17 mph, it had taken me 1h18m ( seems fair enough), but, at an average cadence of 23! spooky...Especially when you consider that the cadence meter is sat in the shed, completely detached from the bike, mainly because I cannot get it to fit the frame on my bike, and the magnet kept coming off the crank arm.

I have emailed Polar, but have not had a response yet. Have any fellow 200 owners had a similar experience with this gremlin? My Polar is only 8 months old, has never been dropped/got wet/cold/been used near to any other form of electromagneticy type of thingy.

Any suggestions?

If the cadence sensor is a long way from the unit it uses more power to transmit. It can run the battery out in a short time.
Just an idea as this happened to me after only 2500 miles on my S720i.

Hmm, maybe my 1st post wasn't clear enough, the Cadence meter is not on the bike, but the head unit is recording a cadence reading of 23, which in normal circs would be rubbish, but is not applicable in this situation, because the cadence meter isn't on the bike.

My mail to Polar remains unanswered, I will re-send.

In the meantime, have any of you experienced similar problem with your
CS 200cad giving bogus readings?

No. I've always used both speed and cadence.
You do know that you can turn the cadence recording off, in the computer settings?
