Analyze Wind?

Post by kq6up » Sun Jan 20, 2019 11:59 pm

The analyze wind feature is not really thoroughly explained in the instructions. What does wind offset do? The ground wind makes sense, but the changes it makes do not seem to be actually applied to the ride if one hits accept. Could someone clarify?

Thanks,

The Analyze Wind feature allows you to adjust the net ground wind speed of the ride. When you change the ground wind number the watts are adjusted accordingly.

Changes in this window affect the ride file only; it does not change anything in the profile.

Thanks, John I got the ground wind, but what is wind offset? I see that it is a function of the other. In other words, I can’t make them both zero at once.

Thanks,

Wind offset is a calibration parameter from the very early versions of our products. Basically, when a device is at rest, in zero wind, there should be no wind reading on the device. Wind Offset allowed users with mis-calibrated devices (non-zero wind offset reported on their device screens) to correct that error.

With new versions of our products, and with the much-better sensors we are using now, this parameter is no longer relevant.
