- Product Review (submitted on December 27, 2011):
I use the panel mount version. This is my second unit, the first one (from another source) lasted about ten years of GS-ing. The new one has some improvements in the mount, but the circuit board is still exposed to water and dirt (I coated this one with epoxy). The troubleshooting section of the manual says if it stops working, clean it and coat it with nail polish. Now one would ask, why is the board not coated in the first place.
That said, it is the best bike thermostat out there. If you can panel mount it, it will be much easier to adjust while riding. A 1/4" phone plug and panel jack makes a good setup for your jacket cord.
