Re: Download Isaac for Mac version 5.1, works with Catalina!

As identified in the Catalina update to 10.15.4 - there is a warning that the Silicon Labs group of extensions and apps has at least one component that will not be supported in the next MacOS.

Looks like Si Labs will have something to fix.

Re: Inconsistent distance measurement between PP and Garmin

The Garmin, with its built in GPS can estimate your tire size (circumference) - What are you using for the tire size? If you allow the Garmin to do the measuring and then add that to your PP/ISAAC profile, the two should agree pretty well. Set up the Garmin, go for a ride at least until the Garmin w...

It looks like 5.24 was the most recent previous version. What Garmin does do conveniently is to add the prev...

Re: New cal ride

Velocomp/John are likely to want much of the math to remain their intellectual property. Cal rides in low wind allow the aero portion to use the bike speed as much as anything to estimate the wind factor. With a high wind, the bike speed plays less of a contribution and thus I suspect harder to nail...

Re: New cal ride

I would think that as the angle of attack of the orifice on the PP is not exactly the same for each bike (unless there is a lot of serendipity) that these factors would vary (wind scale and aero). The same ratio is also not really surprising if it is the same PP as the sensor inside the PP detecting...
