Strava and Garmin Connect Support

Due to regular requests for the presentation of the route and the height profile of workouts on Strava, I have built a tool that can be used to prepare TCX activities exported from the Tacx Trainer Software for Strava, Garmin Connect and similar portals. The processed files then have to be uploaded into the portal. The processing works for all predefined sections (even if you have aborted them). Self-defined routes work with the correct starting point. Also, of course, it only works for my videos. And here is the TCX processing.

Another trainer software plays now Real Life Video

The free software Big Ring Indoor Video Cycling may now be used to train with Real Life Videos. There is also a documentation. So who owns an ANT+ FE-C trainer may now use this software.

Find more informations at my Big Ring page.

Update for Windows 10 issues

Tacx: Microsoft published the cumulative update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based systems (KB3124262) on 27-02-16, which fixes the problems with Videoplayer 1. So you can use this again after installation. Despite some Tacx updates Videoplayer 2 still doesn't work satisfying on all systems. Please notice the posts in the Tacx Forum to Videoplayer 2.

Ergoplanet works again under Windows 10 after installation of two updates. See the article in the Bikeboard Forum (german).
