Lunatix .. would you be kind enough to provide a brief overview / explanation of what you have done in developing the fix - even if I don't fully understand what is said in the explanation - I am still interested to know how the issue arose and what has been done in order to fix it.

Thanks in advance
Sure,

I won't get into to much details but:
The browser we used in the previous implementation is to old and cannot be updated anymore to be compatible with the latest Streetview API (We used Moznet/S7venSoft - looks like Mozilla) We are now going to use Chromium (Based of Chrome) for the streetview API.

I won't get into the details about all the other views but I hope that explains the work we did and how it'll work in the future.

Hi Lunatix,
I appropriate your hard work in getting this solved as soon as possible, but do you have like an ETA for this this, when we could expect the fix to be available?

Many thanks - your explanation was more than sufficient for me to understand

It's going to be internally tested first (Most likely tomorrow) and send to Tacx if our test team thinks it's oké. As soon as Tacx agrees upon the implementation we will ship it to you guys. ETA - Next week if no critical bugs are found.

What exactly will be shipped? A Tacx software update?

Morning

I was hoping to have a Google "Aerial View" ride this morning as I did yesterday - however I have received a message saying...

"The Google features are only supported in the latest version of TTS. Please update your trainersoftware"

That said... software is showing as up to date ... are we in transitional arrangements and waiting for the update to go live?

Same as drewtoncrane! Was hoping to get some use out of the last bit of my Google license & see if things had progressed. Logged on selected ride and..............
"The Google features are only supported in the latest version of TTS. Please update your trainer software"
Guess this means all GPS training is suspended until the updated TTS is available. Seems odd to jump the gun if it's still under testing (today) and waiting to be submitted to Tacx??

Since we can only test it on live servers as we don't want any of the under development changes to go with this. This had to happen.

Again we'll try to get it all up and running A.S.A.P

Thanks for the comment Lunatix -

I'm more than content to have a "no news at this moment" type update as it's better than silence

This is taking a bit of time to sort out. So I've been without the streetview for over a month and now my license has expired. Once fixed I'll need buy a new one, however paying for 12 months and only getting 11 is not good. Do you think Tacx will give a refund or give us 1 month free? Maybe it's Google who should stump it up?
:D

hi,

In the tacx website here:

https://tacx.com/product/google-license/

it's write: Please note that Google Street View is not available until June 2017.

Please note that there has been a reduction in the price of the license. From €30 to €20.

I bought my new license, a month before this debacle.
It then refused to license. Spent 3.5 weeks trying all sorts of things with Tacx, till it eventually worked. It accepted the new license, but kept saying it had expired. Stupid thing was that what worked was them doing exactly what they had done a year before when I had the same trouble (licensed it at their end, and sent me the license file), which I had pointed out to them on day one... However the license date given was when I first tried to license it (last time it was instead the date they did the licensing). 21st January. Had it working for one day, then it crashed on the next outing. So have had one working day out of 2 months of my license so far this year....
