PoerPod v3 starts flashing red/green after 5 mins-

Post by oli123 »

Hi Guys

Please help- I have been trying to get my powerpod to work over several rides now. It starts recording and then after just a few minutes flashes red/green. The Unit is quite new and was fully charged when I started the ride. My Garmin Fenix which connects to the powerpod read my calorie usage as 4 after a 51km ride ;-(
It's behaving weirdly and I cannot seem to get consistent results> Attached are the last 2 ride files which may help you to figure out whats wrong.
I'd be grateful for any tips

Thanks
Kind regards
Oliver

The problem is that your PP changed angle significantly after your calibration ride. PP is trying to auto correct, but the correction angle is too much. This is what is causing your strange watts readings.

You should do a new sensor pairing, which will force a calibration ride. After the calibration ride all should be well.

Make sure your PP cannot rotate on its mount, and make sure that, if you take it off the mount, you reattach it at an angle very close to where it was mounted before.
