Julian & Guy,
You can pair what you want (more options) when using ANT+ but not in Bluetooth. In ANT+ you can specify what to pair for Power, Cadence, Speed, Heart Monitor, Controllable Trainer.
If you use Bluetooth as connection to Zwift you only get power source and controllable trainer.
For those who are spinning out on flats and not getting enough resistance, I’ve read there’s issues when with Bluetooth connection in Freeride mode. If you use ANT+ connection instead you will get more resistance. I’ve tried both ways and yes, ANT+ works better.
For those who want to customize their P1, P2, P3 values or want to “Send map to trainer” or “Read map from trainer” and getting timeout errors in the My E-Training iOS App, the my I figured a way that works for me most of the time. Information transfer seems to work best when the trainer is first powered on. So first make sure you’ve previously paired your trainer to My E-Training App. Your trainer (CSC sensor serial) should appear on the top of Advanced configuration. Unplug your trainer. If you want to change P1,P2,P3 values, click on it and enter the values. Then plug in trainer so it starts up. You will hear the motor buzz and see a flashing light. Press “OK” on app quickly as the trainer is powering on and the new P1,P2,P3 values should upload rather quickly. It should tell you on he app if upload/flash was successful or complete and the blinking light on the trainer will stop. It’s not a guarantee that it’s uploaded/flashed. I usually do this 3 times just to be sure. And the last time leave the trainer on for 15mins before unplugging. I do this because some people say it takes up to 15 minutes for the update to complete. I cannot confirm or deny this but I do it anyway just to be safe.
“Send map to trainer” and “Read map from trainer” also seems to work best when trainer is powering on.
Since calibration depends on combined rider weight and bicycle weight, I found a post by Angelo Ferulli who commented on Athletic Tech Review’s youtube video on how to calibrate this trainer. In his post he mentioned a spreadsheet he made using math equations to help calculate more realistic P1,P2,P3 values. All you need to enter on the spreadsheet is rider’s weight and bike’s weight to get a good starting point for P1,P2,P3 values. I was able to obtain the spreadsheet, not through Angelo, but through someone else who contacted him and received the spreadsheet. I was hoping with his permission I could possibly upload it on a shared link for everyone to use.
“Dear all, I implemented a spreadsheet for calibration of parametrs P1 P2 and P3 of Elite Qubo Digital Smart B+. This calculation simulate the power required riding a climb with a slope including the friction with ground and friction with wind. Yesterday I tried these value and they work very good. The spreadsheet requires only the total weight (bike plus user). The final calculated parameters P1, P2 and P3 are more realistic than default values. If someone want to try this approach please contact me I can send it free by email or please indicate here your weight (bike+user) and I will send the parameters. My default parameters on trainer was P1=171W, P2=186W and P3=155W. I weight 75Kg plus 9 Kg of bike, in total 84Kg, the new calculated parameters are P1=242W, P2=227 and P3=173W.”
