I-Genius und ZWIFT

Post by BB71 » Thu Oct 27, 2016 9:16 pm

Hi,

I bought the I-Genius Multiplayer (article no. 289681) in November 2014. Now I try to connect to Zwift - it does not work.
Is this one not possible for this?

Zwift requires a Smart Trainer which means ANT+ FE-C and Bluetooth compatible, which the the i-Genius is neither.

There is another way, it is very difficult, but you'll be a hero. You need to persuade the company Tacx to open ANT+ Protocol, which is used in the non-smart trainers, and pass it to the developers of third-party software.

If you want to connect your Genius to Zwift in a roundabout way (right hand over left ear), see here:

I asked tacx a few times to open protocol for non smart trainers to work over usb . they give the stock answer that it can not be done. I keep informing them that it can as Fortius works in golden cheetah. Both zwift and trainerroad just needs tacx approval then tacx refuse to respond. Pretty good hardware, shockingly bad software (bought too many early versions of TTS which were not fit for purpose) and poor customer care.
