Computer for tandem?

Forums: 

Anyone have experience with a single computer for a tandem? Or even two computers that work separately?

Its been years *sigh*, but my daughter and I did four STP's on a tandem (8 thru 11 y/o) and a stoker computer is a great anti-boredem device.  Having frequent reports on ride stats - their importance cannot be over-stated -  we simply could not have made it without them. ;)

Cost was a factor for us, so I used inexpensive Cateye wired computers for front and back.   I checked to make sure the stoker's had a long enough wire and taped it down full length - just ask the technician wherever you shop.  Today with all the wireless options you shouldn't have any trouble equiping your tandem.
