Re: Setup upgraded newton

How do you do a 'scan' for ANT+ with an N6?
The scan option isn't in the 'set_up' options since upgrading

Re: PowerPod BLE/ANT is here!

Hi John
Good luck with the new product.
Any reason the PP could not xmit non-power metrics in BLE format? speed, cadence, HR etc
(even if only as an optional setting?)
Therefore act as an effective ANT -> BLE translator for speed/candence/HR etc

Re: Negative elevation figure

Not sure how you do it on the PowerPod but on the Newton the elevation will 'drift' due to climatic conditions so you need to reset it at the start of a ride. Eg My base Alt is stored as 35m so before a ride a do a quick check of how close to that the unit thinks it is and if more than a few meters ...

Re: Multiple Profiles multiple bikes

Re: A way to use new smart trainers?

OK, well if/when you can get it recording, your CSV file will have Newton power in the 'Power' column and trainer power in the 'DFPM" column.
For export to GC you will have a manual step to copy/paste the DFPM column data to the Power column because GC won't load the DFPM column

Re: riding with DFPM and file export

Newton power is in the 'Power' column of the CSV
The is another column "DFPM Power" which 3rd party apps probably ignore.

If you are not getting the outcome you want, edit the CSV file to suit your needs

Re: Is it possible to turn auto-pause off?

Auto-pause is probably most relevant to calculations of "best effort for duration". If you are doing an effort but are interrupted by traffic lights or whatever then your efforts either side of the stop should be split (or averaged down) by the time you are stopped for. I once was credited with a be...

Re: FTP test newton compared to DFPM?

Something would be pretty wrong for that not to be the case because the differences between units would tend to average out over a 20+ minute test.
A few watts difference would be normal however - just as you'd likely see a difference between any two DFPM units.
