Problem initiating calibration ride

My Aeropod reports FW 7.06. I think it's using the most recent public beta but I'm not sure how to tell that for certain. Yesterday I did some testing and things seemed to go more-or-less smoothly in that the Aeropod generated the expected ride files for a calibration followed by a ride. Today I tri...

Re: A little confused about multi-bike support

Do you know which profile you are using for each bike? If not you should be able to determine from Isaac which profile(s) are set up on the Aeropod. If you are using the Aeropod as a PM without a DFPM you should have a separate profile set up for each bike. I'm not 100% certain but as I understand i...

Can Aeropod make music?

I'm not 100% certain but I believe that on windy days my Aeropod produces a flute-like musical tone. At first I thought it was the bike, but I only notice it when the Aeropod is mounted.
My guess is that the Pitot tube is functioning like an organ pipe?
Anybody else notice this?

Re: New AeroPod firmware 7.06

When you do a cal ride, 3 files are generated: 1) the "0-50" file, where WSF and accelerometer are calibrated 2) the "70-100" file, where default CdA is measured 3) the "after 100" ride file, where any subsequent riding is recorded. A minor quibble: As best I can tell if the user follows the calibr...

Re: Aeropod died?

If the AP battery should last 3 months then something really odd was going on. Maybe it wasn't the battery. At this late date I don't recall all the details. I do sometimes see a flashing LED when I first connect the AP to a USB power source but my impression is that the flashing doesn't go on for v...

Re: How's the CdA experimenting going with everyone?

You are probably correct in your assessment regarding the importance of measuring weight and Crr but I would still question whether you will get sufficiently precise measurements to compare results from one day with results from another. It's hard to measure tire pressure accurately, there are varia...

Re: Isaac/PowerHouse/Weight -- feature request

I completely agree that the Powerhouse app needs more functionality ... but I'm not sure it will help all that much with the wear and tear on the USB connector since it's a good idea to charge the Aeropod prior to each use

We do not send slope and wind data to Garmin. We send power data only.
I'm confused. If you don't send slope/wind data then how does the Velocomp app display those data on the Garmin?

Question about data transmission

I've been puzzling over something related to how CdA is managed between the Aeropod and the ConnectIQ applet. If I am in Profile 4 and the Aeropod does not pair with my HRM then CdA data are stored in the HR channel in the Aeropod ... but CdA is also displayed by the ConnectIQ app on my Garmin. If m...

Does incomplete calibration ride cause problems?

I have considered a "workflow" to get around issues re: HRM pairing but I don't know if it would create other problems. Would it be acceptable to pair the bike sensors with the aeropod sometime prior to riding, at a time when no HRM is active, and then return later (potentially a lot later) to begin...

Re: Another failed effort to collect CdA information

OK. I'll do a hard reboot.

In retrospect not resetting was the wrong choice. Is there a wa...

Re: Another failed effort to collect CdA information

I checked in Powerhouse before the ride and also checked afterwards. It was Profile 4.
But even if it had been a different profile ... if the Aeropod paired to the sensors shouldn't it have recorded data?

Re: Power meter selection on headunit

Once the Aeropod is paired is there any reason the Garmin could not be switched back to pair directly with the P1s so the other data would be available in the FIT file?
I don't know what would do to the performance of the Connect IQ app.

It takes me about 20 minutes to remove or install the wheel cover. During that time the Aeropod sometimes shuts itself dow...

I think I may have obtained interpretable data from the Aeropod. Finally. Today I did a calibration ride and then 4 different tests on my TT bike. The 1st and 4th used the same setup as a measure of test-retest stability of the measurements. The out-and-back test run wasn't ideal (about 0.6 miles ou...

For the ride I posted NONE of the wireless IDs are correct. I don't know how the Aeropod acquired speed data unless it was transmitted back from the ConnectIQ app.
I'll re-do the calibration and try again.

Re: Failure to record data

Thanks for the clarification.
For Profile 1-3 all of the Wireless ID tabs were identical. All IDs were 0, all of the sensor "buttons" were black (or is it dark green?) except the Pout Enabled button was a bright green.
There was no sign of any wireless ID associated with the bike I was riding.
