Trainer Mode Switch in Powerhouse

Post by stuflowers » Sat Aug 25, 2018 3:01 am

New Powerpod owner here.
Is there any way to switch trainer mode ON/OFF without having to connect to Isaac and are there plans to add this function to Powerhouse? I imagine there could be a simple toggle switch in the Powerhouse settings/profiles screen.

Right now there is no way to turn trainer on/off except through Isaac.

We will investigate doing this through PowerHouse. This will require both a modification to PH app and to PowerPod firmware, so don't expect it soon... :-)

Ok thanks John. For me and I presume others who use the same bike on and off the trainer, this would be a very useful feature upgrade for Powerhouse. I guess that in the meantime I could create two identical profiles (one with trainer mode turned ON and another with it turned OFF) then use Powerhouse to toggle them?

That is a very practical workaround!

I am able to connect to phone via BLE, however when trying to save a profile from PH to PP I get the message "Something went wrong. Either PowerPod is disconnected or your PowerPod doesn't support profile feature"

I am trying to setup a profile for indoor trainer usage (same bike) and use Powerhouse to switch between the indoor and outdoor profiles. Any ideas?
