What data is the powerpod recording and can I access it outside the Isaac software?

I seem to remember reading in this forum that the PP is collecting data at 800 Hz or something like that. Also, that the whole system is based on calculation made from information gathered from an accelerometer. I'm wondering if that data can be accessed outside the isaac software to be used for some visualization software to be incorporated in a video. Specifically I"m curious about G-forces up and down and associated with braking, etc. I can use garmin data to generate some graphic and I'd like to experiment with my power pod in a similar way.

1) Load the ride file from which you want to get data

2) Go to File/Export Ride Data... You will be able to get a csv file of your data

Thanks, I'll check it out. Do you happen to know if it contains the accelerometer data for G-forces?

No, accelerometer G-force data is proprietary and not exported.

Too bad. I'll have to find another solution.
