Re: Cannot Export Activity to Garmin Connect Anymore?

I have also experienced this recent development. I could import the TCX files into Garmin Connect up to a couple of weeks ago, but now I get the error message as mentioned above. My work around is to import into MapMyRide and re-export using the TCX button. This new TCX file can then easily be read ...

Re: Vortex Brake No Longer Working

Thanks for the reply.
Speed and cadence are registering although cadence is often "discounted" in the climb.

Vortex Brake No Longer Working

Hi, I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this, but it appears that the braking function no longer works on my Tacx Vortex trainer. I have fired off an email to Tacx Support and I am awaiting a response. It has worked up to about two weeks ago, but today I noticed there was no resistance when ...

Re: TDA Go Live this week

Having read the posts on the Forum, I now know what happened to the Tony Martin ride that I did on Sunday. Have just completed Dinant to Namur, and so I have decided to sign up for the monthly subscription. It's a good flat course with stupid pedestrians, a prat on a hybrid bike, the lady in the sil...

Re: Some Screenshots

Zig Zag Hill will be nice to do on the trainer as well, probably safer than the real thing.
I can then imagine the tea & cakes at Compton Abbas, wishing that my PPL was still current. :(

Re: Some Screenshots

Wow, looking forward to Gold Hill Shaftesbury, which btw, is just a few miles down the A30. It is difficult enough walking up, let alone riding. UK riders will no doubt get nostalgic about a certain well known brand of bread. Will be interested to see what other parts of the locale are included, hop...

Re: So Far So Good

In the Cloud on the left hand side you will see "Activities" click that and it will show the rides you have completed. You can also download the .TCX file.

Re: Some Screenshots

For what it's worth, I have a Vortex and the resistance is definitely varying according to the terrain. The watts output is reasonably what I would expect and the figures are comparable to TTS4 and Velereality. There were no shocks or surprises in my performance compared to other apps. I did notice ...

So Far So Good

I did the Ghent Trip just now and really like the interface. Easy to toggle the various widgets on & off. Not as clunky as TTS4 and no adverse evidence of the "Virtual Braking" that has ruined its predecessor. I think this TDA App has a lot of potential although I am wary of the monthly premium when...

Re: Problems with Streetview on GPS-rides since 15th February

Same for me, the last Windows 10 Update Version 1607 was 25th January, which predates my Google Earth licence renewal and there has been no update to TTS4. Therefore, is it reasonable to assume that Google have changed something in the way that Street View works? And, should this issue be escalated ...

Re: Problems with Streetview on GPS-rides since 15th February

Please add my name to the list. I renewed the Google licence on 30th January and GPS rides have been working fine up until 14th February. Didn't use the Vortex yesterday, but today, TTS4 crashed on a GPS ride on the three view option. I restarted the PC and the same happened again.

Looks interesting.
Coincidentally, you managed to pick the one day in a year that it actually rains in Wales. :D

Trainer Tyre Slipppage

I wonder if anyone can please help. The Tacx trainer tyre slips at gradients above 3 percent. Both the tyre and the Vortex trainer were purchased new in January and have been used regularly since (approx 100 miles per week). The tyre is inflated to 120 psi and calibrated using TTS4. The calibration ...
