Can't connect to Vortex

Post by bdr » Tue Sep 27, 2016 12:12 am

I just purchased a T2180 Vortex Smart and it's not showing up under devices on the Tacx utility app or the Tacx Training app on my iPhone 6s. There is a green light flashing on the brake when I plug it in. Any ideas?

I just realized the sticker on the brake says "T2171 Vortex". Is this the model number for a non-smart vortex? All the packaging and even the brake itself say "Vortex Smart" and have the bluetooth logo.

T2171 - i-Vortex (non-smart) resitance unit
T2181 - Vortex Smart resistance unit
But these two units differ from each other only the right side:
T2171.30 - Electro unit i-Vortex (non-smart)
T2181.25 - Vortex Smart elektro unit
May have been rebuilding and repacking.

Hi,

Not sure if bdr is still around, I have had the same experience, everything indicates it is a T2180 with BT, etc.
But sticker on unit says T2171.
Was the issue resolved?

Thanks,
