what am i doing wrong


(Marleen Kuijpers) #1

I bought a tacx blue motion 2 days ago.

Wanted to set up Zwift but i think i bought the wrong stuff.

I bought a ant+dongle (i think that’s right) and a Garmin cadence sensor that’s it.

But Garmin can’t 'find the sensor neither zwift.

Can anyone tell me what i’m doing wrong?

This?

https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/shop-by-accessories/fitness-sensors/bike-speed-sensor-and-cadence-sensor/prod146897.html

With that and the ANT+ dongle you are ready to go. 

1º Are ANT+ drivers correctly installed? Usually Windows get them automatically. 

2º Is cadence sensor close enough from ANT+ dongle?

3º Cadence, speed sensor are correctly installed? Can be tricky to get paired the magnets. Batteries are installed?

  1. Test with other software like free www. goldencheetah.org.

Good luck!

No only a cadence sensor ,not a speed/cadence sensor is that the problem?

I think you need speed sensor and cadence sensor for zwift. The use this information to stimate power. But a ant+ is quite inexpensive and the Zwift experience is bloody addictive!

Tacx Blue Motion trainer is supported by Zwift.

But you need also a speed AND cadense sensor.

I use  Tacx Speed & Cadence sensor Smart  T2015.

Works fine.
