High Power readings at the start of recent rides??

Postby duffsaw » Sun May 07, 2017 7:09 am

Hi All,

I've just started to get high initial readings from the powerpod the last couple of rides!
It settles down, after a while, but why would this be happening?
also, is there any difference in the powerpod when attahced to the mount, being pushed forward or back, regarding the small amount of play there is in any mount??
i feel back would be best, as the speed i travel at, it would stay there with the g-force...... :D :D :D

What is happening is that the position of your PowerPod on your mount is changing from ride to ride.

Make sure you follow the instructions, and that when you attach PowerPod to your mount, that you gently rotate powerpod skyward until it's plastic tabs touch the metal mount stops. Then, tighten the go Pro screw until PowerPod cannot rotate.

If you follow this procedure then you will get consistent watts even at the very start of your rides. If the mount position does change, then it will take PowerPod eight minutes to readjust it's calibration.
