Tacx Vortex resistance control from iPad?

Hi there.

I currently run Zwift on an iPad, in conjunction with a Cycleops Fluid “dumb” trainer, a Garmin speed/cadence sensor (ANT+) and a Mio ANT>BT bridge.

With winter approach, I would like to upgrade to a “smart” trainer, with resistance controlled by the Zwift app running on the iPad.

Both the Tacx Vortex and iPad seem to offer Bluetooth connectivity. Can the iPad control the resistance on the Vortex trainer in this configuration?

Many thanks.


Hi Treve, 

It can indeed! 

That’s good to hear. Thanks for the swift reply!
