T2220 Flow multiplayer

Post by RobinGB » Wed Sep 07, 2011 11:11 pm

A comment about the new T2220 (Flow multiplayer). This is the Flow Turbo unit (without handlebars display) + T1905 + T1925 (including handlbars controller).

The price of this package is almost the same as buying all the bits seperately. I assume it is better to buy the bits seperately as that way I end up with both the Flow Handlebar mounted display/control AND the T1925 handlebar mounted PC/USB control). Hence if I buy it all seperately I can use the turbo with and without the PC. If I buy the T2220 package I can only use it with a PC.

Also it is frustrating that it ships with TTS3 but lists TTS4 as an accessory? Surely TTS4 should be included, or if it is not available yet, those who buy TTS3 within 6 months of TTS4 being released should get a free upgrade, else I (and I suspect others) are not going to buy untill TTS4 is released (must be iminnent as it is now advertised on the Tacx website as an available accessory)???

I am facing the same dilemma as RobinGB here and in another thread (What hardware to use T2220 VR Trainer without PC): to buy the simple T2200 Flow and add the T1925 PC/USB control, or to buy the T2220 Flow Multiplayer?

Do I get it right that:

1) T2220 Flow Multiplayer doesn't work without a PC. Or would it be possible to buy a control unit, such as the T1682 or other, to make it work without a computer?

2) The only difference between T2220 Multiplayer, and T2200 + T1925 (incl. TTS 3 software) is the lack of the T1905 Steering Frame.

3) T1925 PC Control will be shipped with the TTS 4 software as soon as the new software will be available.

Right now I am considering the simple Flow (T2200), integrating it with T1925 either immediately, or later when TTS 4 will be available, saving the software upgrade cost.
On the other hand, if I knew that in case of need I could "upgrade" T2220 Multiplayer with a control unit to be used without a PC, I would go straight with it.

I'm also in the same position. Have spoken to some UK resellers and they reckon the T2220 VR bundle only works when connected to a PC - but none of them know for sure. Have also emailed Tacx support and pre-sales but not heard anything yet.

Over here you can buy the T2220 VR bundle for about £420-£450 if you look around, whereas the individual bits add up to nearer £600-£750. That's a big enough difference and someone should have the answers.

Logically the T1682 should 'convert' the T2220 into a T2200. But maybe the only way to know for sure is to walk into a shop and see a demo - which I can't see them doing unless they already have the kit open.

I've been speaking to www.fisheroutdoor.co.uk who have stated that the T2220 requires the T2202 Head unit to run without the PC. I got the flow VR for £400 so still cheaper than buyer the FLOW and the PC Upgrade.

Thank you, bg, that's a helpful answer.

Now, why, searching on google Tacx T2202, do I only get tax forms and tax receipts? :lol:

Plz poste the price of this unit, cause it is a spare part. These kind of parts mostly are as expansive :evil: , that you finally will pay much more than you pay for T2200 and the upgrade.

I'm looking at buying a T2200 and was thinking of upgrading to be able to use all the VR stuff. If I get a T1905 steering frame will the software that comes with that do the trick or do I need to fork out £240 for the T1925 as well???

maybe also if you purchase an xbox package that comes with 3 games ( say,call of duty 3) & the new one of any of these games is due for release soon (say, call of duty 4), then you should get them free when there released :wink: :wink: :wink:

For the VR stuff you need the T1925 defenitly, there is no application in TTS where you really need the steering frame,
you could use it in the virtual reality worlds, but it doesn´t work really properly.
In my eyes the steering frame is a waste of money.

I use steering successfully in TTS3 VR and TTS4 VR. I think it adds a fair amount to the experience. There is a minor video steering effect in videos, but it does not add very much. One useful function of the steerer is it does a better job of anchoring the front of the bike compared to having the tire sit in a plastic block. I suppose you could build something similar to anchor the fork if you wanted. When you buy the steerer as part of the multiplayer package, the extra cost is usually pretty reasonable. In the US, the difference is about $150 and more than half of that is the cost of the MP license.
