So, many of us are still experiencing random signal dropouts (Ant+ or BT), even if we’ve already done the usual things to prevent this: getting a USB extension cord, firmware updates for trainers, etc. In most cases, for me and people I know, the momentary signal loss is only around 5-10 secs, then it comes back up again.
So instead of having the frustration of coming to a complete stop, how about these suggestions:
1.) if Zwift detects that there is a signal dropout, instead of going completely zero on the power reading… the game will drop to half the last power reading before the signal dropped (ex. 300watts at dropout, go to 150watts) for 20 seconds or till reading is restored.
2.) cap this temporary power to 200 watts
3.) the lightning icon to the power input next to the name will change to something else or go from a blue square to an red-ish square
open to other suggestions. but please do something about it. Thanks!
