Powertap P2 dual sided BLE connection?

Hi all, I suspect that this is a much discussed topic and I apologise fully in advance if all it inspires is rolling eyes.

I have a dual sided power meter (Powertap P2 pedals) which I fear due to the company’s recent history, will not be recieving significant legacy updates to their firmware in the future. Favero have been ahead of the curve with this providing a firmware update enabling a single BLE connection for both pedals.

The Powertap P2s have mostly worked well through an Ant+ connection, but recently they have failed me by dropping power on several important (to me at least) races. I understand that Ant+ is not the most reliable of signals and despite having the dongle plugged into an extension lead positioned as close as I dare to the pedals, they still seem to lose signal every so often.

Is there anyone out there who has successfully connected to Zwfit with these pedals via Bluetooth, or indeed has anyone had a better experience with the Ant+ signal.
Zwift seems unable to combine the pedals through BLE and both L&R appear on the connection page seperately meaning that essentially you get only one sided power if you connect to either using this protocol.

Any help with improving the consistency of the connection to the pedals would be much appreciated.
