I’ve been riding Zwift for about 4 weeks now and loving it. I’ve put a lot of miles and part way through Build Me Up workout, and have a number of questions that I just can’t figure out a solution to in Zwift. Try as I might as an engineer trying to solve their own problem, these I can’t get. Any insights would be great:
1.When a fellow riding (not Follower) sends a “Ride On”, how do you easily send one back their way? If they are within a few riders in front or behind you they are on the right side of the HUD and an orange thumbs up appears. Clicking that does it fine (I use a touchscreen laptop on a stand next to me so that is easy). But if they are not in the nearby Zwifters panel on the right, you can’t see them (so how did they see me, but that is another question) to respond. Tapping my screen in the top HUD area that shows they sent a Ride On does nothing. Looking them up in the Companion App is not feasible while riding. Is there something I’m missing?
I’m running the Companion App on an Android (Galaxy s10e). When on the Zwifters tab, how do I lock the CA’s list so I’m in the middle or at least on the screen. When I see someone on the computer screen nearby Zwifters HUD that I want to give a Ride On or message, I look to my CA to do that. But the list of Zwifters on the CA has scrolled up or down and so finding my name in grey takes some scrolling around. Not the best while riding, specially in a workout. It would be convenient to be able to lock my grey name in the middle of the name list in the CA. Is that possible?
I’ve seen a number of discussions on the forum searching through the past posts for what looks like years but it appears Zwift has done nothing about this obvious one. Am I missing something? When riding a Route, how do we get the Progress Bar to show our progress through the route and distance remaining as it does in a race? I get it that you can turn and break the Route, ok, if the rider does that, they would lose the progress bar in the Route. But as long as Zwift is controlling the turns, it knows I’m on Route. Did they not implement this obvious feature yet or am I missing a key to hit to enable it or something?
Similar to #3 where it has been discussed a lot and I’m hoping I’m just missing some setup somewhere. How do we get the profile in the map portion of the HUD to show the profile of the Route I’m riding instead of whatever Zwift is thinking after then next intersection. Zwift knows what Route I’m on, show that profile, not the profile should I choose to turn off-route at the next intersection. It seems it is showing the profile for the wrong choice of direction more often the my route, and it knows where I’m intending to go. Again, if I break the route by making a wrong turn then all bets are off, but until then I’m still on the route with turns controlled by Zwift, this should be obvious. Am I missing something?
Thanks for reading through my longer descriptions and offering any insights.
