I had the problem with customs in Bosnia. It was almost impossible to import this device without additional documentation, so I had to return it back to chainreactioncycles.
Return process was flawless and most important money was back on my credit card in no time.
Talking about the device - I had to purchase it locally at much higher price than atchainreactioncycles. Anyway, the device is as described. High quality, weather-proof (used it during heavy rain), no maintenance (except battery replacement once a year), accurate (calibrated and tested), all in all I would highly recommend it. It serves as a back up if you already have a GPS on your unit (I use Garmin 910 XT) and if you use GPS for tracking distance/time and it is very good for measuring your running cadence.

Worked straight out of the box and when I checked calibration it was spot on!

Works perfect with my FR610, small size, good price, fast delivery. I have long been a user of footpads (Polar RS800SD), and prefer them to gps. (Acually i run with both - one on each wrist - and yes i am a tech slut). However, you need to know what you are in for!! Fpods will fluctuate a fair bit in accuracy depending on several factors, namely pace, cadence, foot strike (heal/toe) and incline (uphill or downhill). The accuracy can be really good - within meters over a 10k run. However, boy you need to fiddle with it and really know your target pace in advance, to set your calibration accordingly. I use a different calibration for almost every run I do. Where fpods really excell for me is instantaneous pace. GPS is crap for this. That's why Garmin won't let you display gps and fpod pace together - because they are so out of whack. Even if the fpod accuracy is not perfect, the consistency (or precision as we say in engineering) is. Precision is different from accuracy in that, while the display may not be the exact pace, say 10% slow, it will stay consistently 10% slow, not wander up to 10% fast over the course of a run. That means that over the course of a run, your instantaneous pace with the fpod will be very stable and consistent. Unlike GPS which can be all over the shop like a mad @(*%&*$^. GPS is great for average pace and total elapsed distance, where it has more capacity to filter out the instantaneous errors. Average pace is irrelevant for me (i just want to know how i am tracking RIGHT NOW), however I do value the elapsed distance measurement from the gps, which is why I wear two watches.
