 At Climbing or Downhill I have always the same resistence at my Trainer. How Can i fix it?

There is a good write-up on Zwiftblog regarding Zwift and the Tacx Vortex (see http://zwiftblog.com/vortex/ ) where issues are covered under the section “Help! My Vortex Smart isn’t changing resistance on hills!”

Most common issue is that you must disconnect bluetooth.

@Pawel: I had a look at your account, and you’ve only paired your Vortex under the Power category. You need to pair it under both Power and Controllable Trainer to get resistance.

@Jason K. thanks for your answer. 

Is the pairing with bluetooth and the app on my android phone possible or only in the combination PC and ANT±Stick compatible ?

best wishes

Both are possible. BLE instructions are here: https://support.zwift.com/hc/en-us/articles/206576683-Bluetooth-LE-BLE-Support-in-Zwift :slight_smile:
