Hi everyone and sorry for the topic repeated several times, I have read a lot, perhaps too much and, I admit, I have a little confusion in my head …
So, after some test, I actually deduced that the best use for indoor workouts is use the app, (in my case iPhone or iPad): XERT EBC.
Having said that, the Garmin Edge 1030, at this point, I won’t need for indoor sessions and therefore it can also remain off and on the desk.
I use a separate power sensor, (Favero Assioma DUO), and a TACX Neo2T trainer.
In this case, if I have understood correctly, a powermatch is needed to ensure that the power of the trainer adapts to that expressed by me and detected by my Favero power meter.
How do I access Powermatch on the XERT EBC APP ??? I can not find it !
Or is it not present because, still in the EBC App setting, you can select both a power meter and a Power Meter?
My setup is as follows: (last version for all the app):
- Garmin Edge 1030 turned off.
- XERT EBC App on iPhone or iPad
- Among the various selections, from the setting menu,
- Power Source : Assioma L (I unified the channels for indoor use on smart trainers, is that correct?)
- Trainer Control: Tacx Neo 2T
- Heart Rate: HR HRM Garmin
- Cadence: Axiom L
- Speed: Assioma L
- ANT+Adapter: —
It’s correct ?
On the Garmin Edge I deactivated them from the system menu, (scrolling the window up), and I also selected an ‘INDOOR’ profile which had the GPS off, then, I opened the XERT Player app and, in the settings, also in this case, I turned off the GPS.
But using only the EBC App, I ask myself, not seeing an option in the settings: is it necessary, also in this case, to deactivate the GPS data? But how do I disable it?
Always on iPhone or iPad, while using the XERT EBC app, is it preferable to turn off Wi-Fi ? BT, of course, not.
I also deactivated the connection between XERT and Strava, or rather, I said not to automatically upload the sessions performed with XERT (both Player and EBC), on Strava, while, on the contrary, yes: from Strava, (which imports them from Garmin Connect), they will go to XERT.
As for Garmin Connect, I easily solved the ‘problem’ (but not a big problem for me except for the statistical factor), for the indoor sessions that did not report distance and speed: I export them from XERT and then import them on Garmin Connect by correcting them, (GC allows you to do it), by entering the same distance and speed present on XERT.
I apologize, I know the topic has been covered several times, but I assure you that I have read a lot, and in most respects, everything is clear to me … just a little confusion regarding the exclusive use of the app XERT EBC and Powermatch not present, and GPS.
Thank you very much for your patience and any clarity,
