Any problems having the two of the same wireless computers?

I have a Bell wireless computer on my KHS bike. I've had it since May and have put over 400 miles on it. It works great for what I need.

I'm planning on going with something like the Wahoo speed/cadence sensor to use with my iPhone in the near future, but right now I want something cheap just to keep track of speed and distance on my new bike until I get something better. I was going to pick up another of the same Bell wireless computer, but would there be any problems having two of the same wireless computers in the garage? I guess if only one is turned on at a time it should be okay, right?

Shoot I was riding my bike in Destin last month, and stopped in front of this one surf/souvenir shop, and suddenly my computer started reported that I was going 50+ MPH while I was standing there fully stopped! The mileage was going up like crazy! I don't know what happened but after about a minute it corrected itself. I guess that makes the odometer on the KHS computer a couple of miles off.
