Started with XERT beginning of the year. Did some 50 workouts so far, most as Zwift-ZWO imports. Now as I want to move to more higher intensities, I would like to give the SMART concept another try.
My configuration: Macbook AIR (M1), Tacx Neo 1, Samsung S10+ (Android 10), Tickr, Zwift. Workout in Auto Mode.
I tried to follow the suggested path. ANT+ connection to the XERT App (as my Zwift connection to Macbook needs BT). Trainer Control in Zwift unpaired. Overlay with remote App. BT disabled at S10 to avoid interference of drivers.
Typically everything works just fine for around 10-15 minutes. After the unavoidable dropout (only for some of which I feel a strong “clonk” in the drivetrain), the last power target remains unchangeable. Only workaround is kill the app and restart, which is more than annoying.
As this happened during my penultimate workout, I got so angry, that I finished with a 12W FTP improving breakthrough.
I don’t believe in any driver update from Tacx for my old neo. Is there any way to make the combination of NEO and Macbook air running? Garmin is not an option (Wahooligan).
Do I have to buy an Iphone/Ipad? Is there a rock-solid configuration that works? The status quo is very frustrating.
