Re: Cadence and Sensor problems

I am confused by this question? What trainer are you using? You should not need to purchase external sensors for use with Tacx Desktop Application. If you do not own one of the Tacx Smart Bike Trainers, then you are not going to be able to train with TDA.

Re: Choppy Video and little forward progress

By the way, in the photo, as I understand it, the TCA is used, not the TDA. And the Magnum is the same fiasco as the TDA, with a speed limit of 30 km/h and tedious noise: https://www.instagram.com/p/BpSTBQvCuiZ/ Noise did not seem to be a problem for him: Edvald Boasson-Hagen used cycling treadmill...

Re: Choppy Video and little forward progress

Although I am only using the workout functionality and have not subscribed for videos, with the introduction of the Neo Smart Bike, I suspect TDA is doing very well despite our nay-saying. What would be great is if Tacx could find a way to make the Magnum treadmill more affordable for the masses as ...

Re: Strava Upload and Login not working in 4.22.7

So you are referring to the original batch of the semi Smart trainers which were bluetooth/tablet specific? My understanding is that the Smart Trainers are fluent in ANT+ FE-C as well as the private Bluetooth protocol that TDA uses, but not legacy private ANT+ used for the non-smart trainers.

Re: Speed drop outs with Tacx Flux 2 and Forerunner FR 935

The Edge works fine, but on the FR 935 I have countless speed drop outs. It’s like an on/off signal every half second. I am guessing the FR935 is either being used for HR or it is configured to use WiFi to automatically sync with Garmin Connect, Training Peaks, or Strava, hence the need for having ...

Re: Strava Upload and Login not working in 4.22.7

I still have TTS3 loaded and it still works despite no updates in a long time. I assume that is with a legacy trainer such as a Fortius or non-smart Bushido, Flow, or Genius, as I recall support for ANT+ FE-C required for the smart trainers wasn't introduced until long after support for TTS 3 had e...

Re: Installing software with fortius

Well I was not aware Tacx had removed the requirement for a HR monitor with TTS. Curious though, if you start a free ride or pre-programmed workout wihtout a HR monitor, doesn't TTS start beeping due to HR being out of zone?

Re: Tacx Neo drive train rumble and vibration

I am thinking the cassette spacing is ever so slightly different between the Neo's freehub and your bikes rear wheel. If your bike is on the trainer until spring time, you can adjust via Shimano's Di2 adjustment process . If you live in a milder climate where the bike comes off the trainer weekly, I...

Purchase an inexpensive analogue HR strap as TTS will not start without a Heart Rate strap connected!

Yes, exactly same here. Stopped working some days ago
Sounds like Strava changed connection process which in turn caused the functionality to stop working in TTS.

Re: Bluetooth ?

@Splix,

Given this change as well as the addition of Workouts to TDA, might be a good time for an update to the User Manual and the Bluetooth troubleshooting sections.

Re: Are there any keyboard/keypad shortcuts for workouts?

You should be able to rotate through 3 main screens (full picture, gps, and data) as well as turn the various widget mini-screens that are insets on the full picture screen on and off. Will review the keyboard bindings before next trainer ride but would not think there would be a GPS screen for FTP...

Re: Are there any keyboard/keypad shortcuts for workouts?

well as rotate through the 3 screens. Are there any other view settings you have in mind? Easiest thing to do is experiment with all of them. I think if you press F1 while riding it will bring up a list of keybindings settings (not 100% sure if this is in the current public release yet). Well that ...

Are there any keyboard/keypad shortcuts for workouts?

Anyone know if there are in fact any keyboard shortcuts to manipulate the view while training with user created Workouts? Having just viewed the TDA User Guide, and reviewed the keyboard mappings within TDA, I am unable to find anything to answer this question.

Re: Tacx Bushido Smart connection to Garmin Forerunner 935

My suggestion would be to pair the Bushido Smart's ANT+ speed/cadence and power outputs to your 935, select the road activity, and disable GPS while indoors, and record the training ride. The drawback to this suggestion is that you are only getting the basic metrics which is fine for workouts, but i...

Re: Unidentified Speed Sensor

I will take your word for that. Not sure why that is the case. I submitted a support request for the stand-alone speed sensor when I was still racing and training with the legacy Bushido, and was curious why TTS could not display speed from a stand-alone speed sensor and the cadence from my SRM.

Re: NEO 2 and Balance L/P

is there any chance that Garmin will have such support? Garmin already supports L/R balance metrics on the Edge 520/820/1030 cycling computers when you pair the Neo with the Garmin as an ANT+Powermeter, then configure one of the data screens to include L/R balance fields. That is not to say that Ga...

While TTS can find/connect with combined speed/cadence sensors, TTS has never been updated to include the ANT+profile for stand-alone speed sensors.
