BikeErg connection

Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to connect the concept2 PM5 with Zwift on my PC with an USB-cable or if Bluetooth and ANT+ are the only ways to do so.

Thanks in advance!

This thread should help you out…

EDIT: didnt see the USB cable. No, ANT or BT for connections.

I’m using the Concept2 RowErg with the PM5 on Zwift. I connect it via USB to my Samsung tablet, and in Zwift I choose the tablet as power source. You need the app PainSled or RowedBiker as a “translator” for the PM5 signal - just install it on your device, follow the app instructions for connection and off you go.

There is an iPhone version of PainSled or RowedBiker too, but unfortunately the iPhone doesn´t offer a USB connection :upside_down_face: But for me Bluetooth works just as well - I only use the USB option when I want to use Discord because Discord seems to cause occasional BT signal losses of PainSled.
