1. How to set the time on MEILAN computers?
PEAK420, FINDER, OVAL, and M3 MINI are GPS computers, you only need to set your time zone in the settings (please check on the Internet), when GPS positioning is successful, the device will automatically correct the time and date. PEAK420, FINDER, OVAL and BLADE can be connected with MEILAN APP. After successful connection, it will automatically correct the time and date of the device. You can also manually set the time and date in the BLADE settings menu.
2. How to enter the rim circumference/WS?
After PEAK420, FINDER, OVAL, and BLADE are successfully connected to the speed sensor or C1, C3 and the APP/sport watch are successfully connected, the device will automatically request to enter the current bicycle rim circumference value. You can check the following table to choose the rim circumference value that is suitable for you.
After connecting the computer to the sensor, you can also check the connection status and change the input rim circumference value in the MEILAN APP. you can also make manual measurements as follows. After connecting, you can also check the connection status and change the entered rim circumference value in the MEILAN APP. If you can't find your bike rim circumference in the list, you can also follow the steps below to manually measure.
3. why do the GPS computers consume power so fast?
Due to the different working principles, the power consumption of the GPS computers will be much faster than the traditional wire computers,which is normal.
4. GPS positioning time and data accuracy issues
When you use it for the first time, it will take a long time to finish the positioning, which is normal. If you are in a densely covered building, a thunderstorm or rainy day, or a place with a lot of electromagnetic interference around it, the tunnel/indoor may take a long time to locate. You need to quickly locate in an open environment. therefore,Compared with the BLADE computer(using a speed sensor),generally, the data generated by purely GPS is lower than that generated by the sensors.due to the aforementioned reasons. This is normal in the industry.
5. Bluetooth connection interrupted or unable to pair with the sensor
A. Check if the sensor battery is sufficient
B. Check if the installation location meets the requirements
C. Check if there is a lot of 2.4G co-channel interference around, most of the cases is due to the traffic monitors on the road or wireless video of some buildings. .
D. please step on the bicycle for 2-3 laps and wear the heart rate monitor to activate these dormant sensors.
We strongly recommend the use of MEILAN sensors with Meilan computers. We cannot provide technical services for problems that arised when non-brand sensors are used with MEILAN computers. Our computer does not support heart rate monitors that work with the 5.3KHZ transmission protocol.
6. How can i know if the batteries of C1, C3 and C5 are working normally?
All Meilan sensors have a battery insulating film in the battery box. You need to use a coin to unscrew the battery box and the device can not power on unlesss you remove the blue insulating film. When C1 switches the working mode or when C5 is just worn on the body, the LED will start to flash. If the LED no longer flashes, you need to replace a new battery. Please purchase a regular brand battery. When the displayed data is intermittent, or your mobile phone/computer cannot detect the presence of the sensors (you can check if the following sensors can be searched in the MEILAN APP), you may need to consider replacing with a new battery.
C1 speed function: MEILAN-SPD
Cadence function: MEILAN-CAD
7. How to distinguish between Bluetooth BLE4.0 and ANT+ two wireless connection methods?
C1, C5 support Bluetooth BLE4.0 and ANT+ two wireless connection methods, C3 only supports Bluetooth BLE4.0 wireless connection method.
ANT + connection mode: display the icon + digital number (the corresponding digital number is attached to the back of the product); Bluetooth connection mode:
display the icon + device name (Meilan-CAD). When your computer only supports one connection mode, please select the connection mode correctly. Garmin, Bryton, Polar and Wahoo such brand devices only support ANT+ mode when they connect to sensors.
8. How do I distinguish between C1 and C3?
9.MEILAN bike computer support cycling power value?
PEAK420, FINDER, OVAL and BLADE computers all support the display of power data, FINDER can support the display of double-sided power values, PEAK420 can support the display of more rich power training classification datas.
10.Why can't GPS fix the position after I connect the speed sensor?
The speed values of peak420, Finder and Oval can be provided by the speed sensor or GPS. When you connect the speed sensor, the system will give priority to the
speed value provided by the speed sensor as default, because the value of the speed sensor is more accurate than GPS. At this time, the GPS symbol on the screen
will disappear, but this does not mean that GPs can not locate and stop working, it is still recording the GPS track.
11.How does PEAK420, FINDER, OVAL export .fit file through data cable?
Please connect the device to the computer with the data cable in our package in the shutdown state. In the removable disk: MEILAN-**, select: the ACTIVITY folder. Please do not delete other files that are not in .FIT format, otherwise the device may not work properly. You can also upload the .fit format file that you generated in other devices to your account through the MEILAN APP to view it.
12. How to delete records in the device?
A. For PEAK420, FINDER and OVAL computers, you can connect to the computer through the data cable to delete the history record.
B. For PEAK420, FINDER, OVAL, and BLADE computers, you can also select the operation in MEILAN APP: delete the device record data.
C. Please refer to the user manuals of the computers to delete the records on the device.
13，How to set the record back to 0 ?
The smart computer has internal storage, you only need to save the current record (press the save key), restart a new ride (press the start key), the device will record your new journey from 0. For the specific operation method of each model, please refer to the instruction manual (our website also has an electronic file to check)
14. which models of MEILAN computers support display: incoming call number and message display?
15.APP register failure
MEILAN will continue to develop and update its APP, and may it change your previous usage habits. In some countries, due to the influence of network speed, network regulation or the permission restrictions of some brand Android phones, there might be a certain chance of failure in APP installation or use.We may need some time to optimize in order to provide you with a better using experience.
What if you register with your email or mobile phone, but never receive the verification code? Please check:
1. Your email service provider does not set rejection restrictions;
2. Check whether your mailbox is full of capacity that can no longer receive emails, or other problems;
3. Whether your mobile phone signal is lost. -If you cannot log in with the verification code, please try another third-party login method.
4. As the IOS or ANDROID operating system is constantly updated and upgraded, and the rules of the wireless communication protocol are constantly changed sometimes, which causes the devices that have been connected and saved are in the process of being continuously disconnected or cannot be successfully connected. It will make the users unable to use them normally. We could delete the device in the APP, and completely delete the memory of the device in the Bluetooth settings of the phone menu. Then we pair it again. It will solve this problem.
16. Regarding the Problems with waterproofing
Please follow strictly according to the waterproof grade of each of our products. At present, except for sports watch products, other products are only recommended for using in small to medium rain environments. Although our video shows that after testing some products can be soaked in the water and work normally, we do not recommend using it in heavy rain or soaking it in the water.
17. Other problems that may be encountered but not mentioned above.
You can view the videos on our FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE channels, for other questions, you can turn to us through our APP or Email: SERVICE@MEILANKJ.COM, we will get back to you within 3 working days.
