How you could measure a distance of about 1 km in your neighbourhood

To measure it accurately use the longest measuring tape you can find (I have one that measures 30m). Extend it fully and starting from the beginning point lay this in the direction you wish to measure the road. At the 30m mark on the tape lay a tooth pick, or some other item with a sharp point, on the road with the point level with the 30m mark on the tape. Now without moving the toothpick hold the tape and walk in the direction you wish to measure until the beginning of the tape is level with the toothpick (check that this is accurate - best if you have somebody helping you).Now take the tooth pick and again place it on the road level with the 30m mark on the tape. Repeat this another 31 times and then on the next time measure only one metre. This will have taken you 1000 metres along the road.
Alternatively, make your self a wheel of circumference say one metre out of some suitable material (plywood). Attach an axle at the centre with a handle so that this wheel can easily revolve on the axle. Put a mark on the wheel at the circumference so that when you place the wheel on the road with this mark at your starting point on the road and then walk forward, you will be able to count the number of times it has rotated as you walk along in a straight line. When the wheel has completed 1000 rotations (with this mark touching the road) this is the 1 Kilometre distance measured.

Use of bosch dlr165 when there is no direct line of vision has a few wheel meters that roll along the ground and will give you a fairly close measurement. or you can use the string method where you take a string and stretch it as close to a straight line as possible then mark it then get it out to where you can measure the string.

I need directions for a TOPEAK comp 140 cycyling computer.

When you put in the new battery it will be in set mode. First select km/h or m/h depending on your preference. Switch between the two by pressing the large button. Hold down the button 2-3 seconds to switch to the numbers at the bottom (the first number will start flashing). Set the circumference of your tire in mm. Push the button to change the numbers and hold down the button for 2-3 seconds to switch between numbers. (You can measure the circumference of your tire by lining up one spoke with the end of a tape measure and rolling down the tape one revolution, if you measure in inches Google can help you with the conversion to mm). Once you have set the circumference, press the set button on the back of the computer. Now you need to set the clock. Press the large button to select different modes. When the clock appears press the set button on the back to toggle to set mode. Use the large button to change the time just the same as setting the circumference. Press the set button when finished.
