The biggest challenge is that the documentation is in Chinese (not even Chenglish!!!) and it takes a little while using "press and hope" on the unit to change the menu setting to English. After that it's pretty easy.
Correct rear brake use is scientifically proven to shorten stopping distances in EVERY road situation.

I wonder if we have any Chinese language experts herein.

It seems such a beautifully structured character set and much more complex than 'ours', but I wonder how easy it is to hand write in Chinese.

My wife (Japanese) can read and write Kanji well enough, however the Chinese language often uses the same characters as Japanese, though with a different pronunciation (not a problem with the written word) and sometimes a different meaning as well (that might be more of a problem).

Anyway, if all else fails it might be worth a try!
