Wahoo elemnt workout issue

If you use a wahoo elemnt in workout mode while riding zwift the elemnt and zwift interact poorly. Using the Elemnt in workout mode while riding zwift has lots of nice features, but it doesn’t really work as you might think and you probably want to stop doing it.

I ride a lot of workouts in zwift that are generated in training peaks. I ride them in zwift and I load them on my Wahoo elemnt to keep track of the segment’s average power. This seemed to work wonderfully once I got the zwift workout and the elemnt workout synchronized. I discovered today that the elemnt is fighting with zwift over who gets to control the resistance of the taxc neo 2 trainer that I use. I contacted Wahoo support and they said if it hurts don’t do that :(. They actually said that they support “passive” mode on the kickr trainers but not on the Tacx trainers.
