Garmin Cadence (new, not the magnet version)
It seems like many people are getting the KICKR to pair just fine, but then there is no cadence to pair and thus the accept button is not available. That has been my problem too.
Every few days, I try again with “workaround” suggestion I find in this forum. Nothing has helped.
I understand enough about ANT+ to believe that this makes no sense, but I’ll describe it anyway.
Usual test of VIRTUGO and usual results – KICKR detected, no cadence. But oddly this time I wasn’t getting cadence reported to my Edge 1000 head unit either. Decided to delete head unit connect and reconnect.
When I deleted the Garmin Cadence from the Edge 1000, I noticed that the Garmin cadence was detected in VIRTUGO and could be selected. I also noticed that there was also a second cadence detected, which appeared to be KICKR although I had thought that KICKR didn’t have cadence.
None of that makes sense, but I was able to ride for the very first time. Unfortunately, when encountering the first hill, resistance seemed to max out so I ended the ride.
For fun, I then exited and re-entered. Now just the KICKR cadence was detected (not Garmin) but I was able to select that and enter and ride. Same max out resistance on first hill.
On my next attempt to exit and re-enter, no cadence was detected and I could not ACCEPT or enter.
Again, I appreciate that these symptoms don’t seem to make sense but as a beta tester I feel the obligation to report what I experienced.
From reading the forum, it looks like many many testers are having problems with getting cadence to be seen. I’m guessing this is going to be a real programming challenge!!!
