Garmin HR Belt shows no BPM in Tacx Cycling App

Post by haluxl » Sun Mar 12, 2017 1:35 pm

Hi fellows,

my Garmin HR Belt (Ant+) works fine with various Android apps (e.g. Samsung SM-T800, Android Version 6.0.1) and Smart Watches.
The Garmin HR Belt is also detected in the Tacx Cycling App - Device Menu and can be activated by shifting the slider to the right. But 0 (zero) BPM is shows at all when selecting "device options".
I've de-installed other Ant+ apps, re-installed Tacx Cycling App, but no luck at all.

BTW: the strange thing is that Tacx Trainings App does measure the BPMs of the same HR belt.

Any good suggestions?

These two apps (TTA and TCA) from different developers. In TTA bug is already fixed.
TCA developers are working on a solution.

That is a question for Tacx for despite his wealth of knowledge, Alex is a user just like you and I.

thanks for that info... after getting such a swift and precise feedback and when I saw that Alex is listed as "moderator" - I drew the (wrong) conclusion. Let's wait for TACX to fix that TCA... at least spring is here. Best Haluxl
