Speed & Cadence connection issues

Anyone had problems with Speed and Cadence sensors dropping out for 3-5 seconds…? I am using Elite Chrono Fluid trainer with Garmin speed and Cadence sensors. Seemed to work well earlier in year, I reactivated account recently and have been having alot of drop outs on first few rides. Battery for both sensors is above 2.8v, I’m using a laptop with windows 10, any suggestions would be appriciated…

Are you using Ant+ or Bluetooth?

Garmin speed & cadence sensors using ANT+ to a laptop via a dongle.

Do you use a cable extender for the Ant+ dongle to place it next to the sensors?

Speed can be thought of as the rate at which an object covers distance. A fast-moving object has a high speed and covers a relatively large distance in a given amount of time, while a slow-moving object covers a relatively small amount of distance in the same amount of time.

No I don’t. Do you think this will make a difference? I changed batteries and it seemed better, but didn’t last long, my ant+ dongle is in laptop only 1m to 1.5m away, do you think this us an issue? Laptop does sit on think wooden bench right enough…

Yes. This should help.

Excellent, I will try this, thanks for the advice.

Hello Guy. I used my extension cable today and managed a 44 min interval session without any drop outs. Hopefully this does the trick. Thank you for your help.
