I use 191 for the digital for both 26" and 27" which are actually same size. Dead on compared with GPS.

These are very reliable once you take care of the reset problem and incredibly easy to set up. Only takes a few seconds. Calibration is also trivial assuming you have a cheap GPS (who doesn't these days?).
