Pairing with Tacx (Bushido Smart T2780 )


(Hamad Al Mansoori) #1

I try to install the following setup -> Mac OS X Yosemite iMac, Tacx Bushido Smart  T2780 (2015 Model), but I cannot find a way to connect to the Tacx Bushido. 

Do you have any suggestion on how to do that?

Do you have your ANT+ dongle plugged in close to the Bushido Smart?

i just bought the bushido today

The ANT builtin right?

Hi Hamad,

While the trainer TRANSMITS ANT+, your computer needs a way to RECEIVE the signal. Without an ANT+ dongle attached to your computer, there is nowhere for that data to go.

You will need a USB 2.0 ANT+ dongle for your computer.

If you are continuing to have trouble pairing your Tacx Bushido Smart, please read the Zwift Guide to Watopia here: https://support.zwift.com/hc/en-us/sections/200993429-Zwift-Guide-to-Watopia

Make sure your Tacx trainer’s firmware is updated to F-EC: https://support.zwift.com/hc/en-us/articles/205107765–Info-Updating-your-Tacx-Smart-firmware-ANT-FE-C-to-enable-Zwift-resistance-control
