I’m one of the many with regular connection dropouts. I’ve been struggling with this before, but last season things worked mostly OK. This season I’m back to dropped connections every few minutes.
I’ve got a bunch of options for my setup, so I’m hoping for advice on which one will give me my best chance of success.
Trainer - Cycleops Magnus with BT & ANT+
Power meter - Stages left only, w/ BT & ANT+
Computing devices - Macbook 11" 2011, Google Pixel 2 XL, iPad Pro 2017 13"
Garmin ANT+ Dongle on a USB extension
Ubiquity Unifi wifi gear - One small AP in the room with the trainer, plus another on another floor. I can change power levels, and channels… I’ve already disabled 2.4GHz radios on the AP in the room with no joy.
Watch - fenix 5, broadcasting HR on ANT+
I’ve tried Rouvy, the app made by the Cycleops folks. It disconnects just as much.
I’ve been trying to capture the workout separately on the fenix 5 at the same time as I do the Zwift session so the watch can track my training load.
There are tons more details I can share on what I’ve tried so far, but for now I’m mostly looking for guidance.
I could run Zwift on the Macbook, the iPad, or the Pixel. I’ve tried a couple difference scenarios. So far it really seems like it’s the Magnus that keels over and needs a few seconds to get back on it’s feet. No idea if that’s correct though.
Even a link to the best connectivity troubleshooting page you know of.
Cycleops kindly sent me a new resistance unit in my first year of troubles. It seemed to help for a while, but this season I’m right back where I started. I don’t do workouts anymore, just fight with connectivity.
Thanks in advance for any hints.
