I have got a Zwift Play, mostly for the convenience of doing actions without having to pull my phone from my back pocket or reaching out all the way to the laptop stand.
I am mostly happy, but there are few things I want to point out:
- The buttons layout is somewhat similar to the XBOX, but some buttons are swapped: A and B. On XBOX A button is used to select menu actions by default and having it in a different position is confusing.
- I would like to have the option to configure the buttons, or even better have some stickers in the box to place them on whatever button I want. Particularly the steering. I would prefer it to be single handed, on the right-hand side controller for instance, and moving the front “button” left to actually steer left instead of braking. The other handle should be used for braking. This way I don’t have to use both hands to correct the steering.
- Have an option to turn steering off. It is completely annoying. I did few laps with a pace partner, and I had to steer left or I would be pedaling alone in the middle of the road after a short while. As a matter of fact, that session I exclusively steered left. I did not have any need to steer right at all and it was quite disruptive.
