More recently I’ve switched to bluetooth for my trainer (kickrbike) and have had good results after using ANT+ for so long which started to give massive dropouts (as in, zero, until late summer where it started happening weekly).
However, when I was using ANT+ for everything, it would all pair nicely and I’d be fed straight into the main menu.
Since switching to Bluetooth on the kickr (still using ANT+ on HRM, so yanking the antenna isn’t an option), it will relay power, controllable, and steering onto the Kickrbike’s BLE signal; however, it will always use cadence via ANT+.
Every time I start Zwift I have to force it to use the BLE signal for cadence.
Then, and only then, will Zwift forward itself to the main menu; but even with everything connected; it will sit on the pairing screen.
Is there no way to force it to use only the BLE signal? I enter the menu and it appears, so it is visible.
I’ve tried removing the ANT+ signals from the Kickrbike in the knowndevices.xml but it of course resets that file every time I start Zwift.
the Prefs.xml shows the bluetooth signal as the last device, but that doesn’t seem to force it to try and use it before plopping the ANT+ signal in.
Nothing inside Zwift’s install folder seems to correspond to this stuff that I can edit personally anyway.
I realize this might seem like a pretty minor gripe and “why not just use the ANT+ cadence,” but if the sensor is there, and it sees it… why does it keep assigning ANT+. (Also, there seems to be some weirdness that occurs when I leave it on ANT+ cadence, that’s why I’m asking if this is possible.)
