I have the following setup:
iPhone 7 running 10.3.3 (haven’t updated to IOS 11 yet)
Wahoo heart rate strap
On my phone, the *Zwift app* will connect just fine via Bluetooth with my Kickr and HRM. And, it is more reliable than the bluetooth connection to my Macbook, which drops a lot. (Macbook is old. I am thinking it is my Macbook.)
However, the *Mobile Link* app on my iPhone will not connect to any Bluetooth device. Seems odd as the Zwift app on the exact same phone does it just fine and reliably. I have made sure that the Zwift app is not running on anything when I launch the Mobile Link. The light on the trainer is blinking blue, so it is not connected to anything when I launch the Mobile Link app. I also pedal a bit to make sure it is woken up and discoverable.
I have read over the online help articles many times and done the things it said, like turn off mobile data, etc. But, I think most of these articles are geared towards the laptop Zwift application and the Mobile Link app not communicating over wifi. I’m having a bluetooth issue with devices not pairing with Mobile Link.
If I launch my laptop’s Zwift application, the Mobile LInk app sees it and changes from the Home screen to the map screen. So, the two apps are talking over my wifi network. However, neither device will connect to my trainer or HRM via Bluetooth. (Again, they will both connect via the plain Zwift app.) Also, the Zwift app on the laptop never changes to the phone icon, it still shows the bluetooth listening symbol. (Maybe because the Mobile Link app never connected to any devices?)
Am I the only one? Why in the world would the Zwift app connect fine via Bluetooth to all devices whereas the Mobile Link app on the same phone won’t connect?
And, yes, I have the BLE set to on for connecting Bluetooth in the Mobile Link app. I’ve tried toggling it on/off a few times to get it to work.
