Re: AeroPod CdA Connect IQ app for Garmin

On the 530. Given up on connecting the watch via usb with this firmware.

I thought of a problem with my plan of testing it by putting in front of a fan though: the cal ride.

Re: AeroPod CdA Connect IQ app for Garmin

I did an experiment last night before your reply & I think you guess right. I created a new profile called TT on it and followed your instructions. It seems to have worked, but unfortunately I can’t test it as my one bike with a DFPM has no brakes currently. I removed them to hide them from the swea...

Re: AeroPod CdA Connect IQ app for Garmin

Sod. The watch is flakey over USB. Do you think it can be installed on an Edge 530? It’s very similar to a 520 and always appears via USB.

Re: AeroPod CdA Connect IQ app for Garmin

Do you happen to know if it requires a USB connection to the device? My forerunner 735XT is very temperamental about connecting over USB, but connects to the Garmin phone app over Bluetooth fine. My Garmin account has the watch registered, it just doesn’t appear in the ‘Garmin Express’ app much. Wha...

Any idea? I know it will be a bit worse, but I don’t really care for commutes and the main high episode is uphill anyway.

Accuracy loss in profile 1-3 on removing pitot tube

The button on my aeropod stopped working and it’s with you now, but as part of my initial troubleshooting I reset it to factory settings; so I’m going to have to do a new calibration ride anyway: was wondering if I remove the pitot tube before the tide on the commuter bike how much accuracy loss wil...

Re: Is there any point varying CRR with temperature?

No, but I never looked for it. Temperature seemed important when I looked for the effect of rain though & the method of testing for tyre rolling resistance almost always keeps it the same. I would bet some of these tyre testing labs have tested for a temperature effect, but not published it & just t...

Is there any point varying CRR with temperature?

This is actually something I came across ages ago when reading on rolling resistance in rain, but forgot. Essentially, at least in bigger tyres, a small amount of water decreased rolling resistance, but more increased it (assuming road temperature was not changed by the rain). They had to keep tempe...

Rolling resistance in the rain

Just caught the end of today’s stage of the Giro d’Italia, which was very wet. The calculations for CdA and power in the other profiles require an estimate of rolling resistance. The device could possibly detect actual puddles using the accelerometer & adjust the rolling resistance? But, riding alon...

Re: AeroPod CdA Connect IQ app for Garmin

The device I’ve purchased is still on pre-order (Edge 530). The predicted shipping is mid-May, although I wouldn’t be surprised if it was later. Is the aeropod Connect IQ thing going to appear in the Connect IQ store and, if so, do you guess it will appear by then?

Re: AeroPod CdA Connect IQ app for Garmin

I’ve finally got a device with Connect IQ, or will shortly. Garmin have recently released a new streamlined way of getting apps onto the device. Just searched in the new ‘connect IQ’ App for you. Can’t see it. I’ve tried ‘aeropod’ and ‘velocomp’: are you in the Connect IQ store?

Just to let you know your instructions on how to manually update the firmware using the Mac software worked perfectly.

I’m guessing the PC software has a similar interface & they could do the same if they are having problems?

Re: 4k video about AeroPod featuring Steve Jackson, elite triathlete

The thing that most surprised me about the video is the mount he used (as well as the magnitude of CdA change). I thought it had to be really firmly attached, but he was getting away with a click-in GoPro mount.

Re: New AeroPod firmware 7.06

As regards the 5 minute warm up: does that apply to the profiles that don’t have CdA? My cycles to the swimming pool and heath to run both require stopping at red lights, surging on greens & there are lots of 90° turns. I don’t actually need super accuracy there anyway - main use is to avoid getting...

Re: CdA changes between headwind and tailwind - to be expected?

I’ve wondered before if effective weight varies with airspeed & if the effect is significant. Just imagining a cyclist I can easily see an aerofoil type effect at higher speeds, with higher pressure underneath the rider than above the back. I can’t remember the formula for CRR but I think it is line...

What about headunits that connect via Bluetooth rather than Ant+? Have you any idea if the Bluetooth Special Interest Group are going to release a Bluetooth CdA profile? I’m thinking mostly about Bluetooth connected phone apps and the newer Suunto watches mainly.

I guess my point is pointless as I didn’t realise the Aeropod transmitted power over Bluetooth to third party apps.
