Installing Polar CS500 - Sensor Sync Problems

For those of you installing the Speed and Cadence sensors for the Polar CS500, you may be experiencing some sensor sync problems.

In the manual if you have to link up the sensor with the magnets provided. It mentions a red light, which will light up when the magnet passes the sensor to show it is working.

Now I thought that the red light keeps on flashing continously. No. The red light only flashes for a small period of time, after that it doesn't flash anymore (presumably to save the battery life).

So to save you the embarrassment of going to the local bike store to ask why it isn't working, just make sure you sync it up through the Polar computer first, that will tell you if it is working ok or not!
