Look at Help, License Information (Or however it is displayed in your language).

It will tell you which modules need a code to be entered.

Re: How old is my Genius

I bought my Genius new from a retailer 2 days ago. When installing the software it informed me that it had already been installed on another PC. I contacted support and they quickly sorted it for me but im now thinking the retailer sold me a used or returned unit. Is there any way I can interrogate...

Re: Tacx I-Magic Vs Flow

I have the T1904 white faced unit with the lime green ring. Is the Flow the upgrade unit for mine? If it is, what, if any would be the advantages of the flow over the I-Magic? If I am totally wrong, what would be the best head unit upgrade for my trainer, that would allow me to use the I-Magic brak...

Re: Imagic T1904

A year has passed and I am now back on the bike after an enforced layoff! My Cadence sensor works when I had it setup wrongly using a wheel magnet [which gave me ridiculously high cadence readings, as it would] After advice here, I have put it on the rear stay and attached a magnet to the crank arm...

I've several friends how have completed this, one who only ever commuted to work (8km round trip). They all successfully did a 160km recently without passing out, vomitting or need...

I have owned my road bike now for approximately 2 years. I am not your ideal cyclist, I am 43 years old and weigh just under 15st. I bought the i-Genius a few weeks ago to help me with my winter training and have today done the CP20 and achieved a FTP score of 229. Not very good compared to some I'...

After upgrading my genius brake firmware and software to 4.7.0 my brake actually exploded 2km into the ride. Has anyone else had this happen. The device is exactly 1 year old. Does anyone here have a suggestion what to do? Turn it off (of course) and don't use it until you have contacted support@ta...

Thanks for this info. Can you transfer an avi file via iTunes and get the ipad just to play back the video as a film (ie no training data)?

Re: First impression on tacx app

Used the app for the first time today and it worked flawlessly. Rode the first 20 miles of the Corsica RLV and really enjoyed how it works. It is just incomprehensible that they didn't build in a way to export your data. Just about every other cycling or running app has this function, can't believe...

Hello all, I am new here and considering to buy a Vortex trainer to cycle some of the routes I normally do outside in the summer. Due to the limited breaking power of the Vortex I am very curious about how the Vortex handles steep slopes in the order of say 10-15% at correspondigly relatively low c...

Re: Re:

As always with Tacx, you need to have a degree in engineering to use their gear. I just moved up to a Genius from a Fortius which I have pretty much cycled to death. I was hoping things had improved and had become more user friendly. Here's to hoping! So Tacx trains the mind as well as the legs :D
