EDIT: Komoot sync wasn’t broken after all. Komoot changed policies, now requiring you to buy the region the whole route is in (previously could sync without that region officially bought).
Chapter #2451 in the book of “why I won’t buy Wahoo anymore”. I already wrote about my bike computer crashing midride (literally freezing), not being able to sync, and other issues.
This is not a flamebait. This just goes on to show how the QA issues keep stacking up, I am wondering whether I am alone in this or whether other people experience the same thing.
I now have FOUR new issues that just occurred in the last 5-6 rides… but consistently:
First, only speed was all over the place… even when peddling at a rate that feels consistent, my speedo goes between 15KM and 40-50KM intermittently quite often. This also happens when riding consistently, so it is not Wahoo smoothing the curve or something (I think). And this never happened before, it was always more or less accurate… when I start peddling speed goes up, when I stop speed goes down.
It is now happening with power as well. This must thus be regardless of the sensors (I have wahoo cadence or gps for speed, my 4iiii for power). Yesterday, sweetspot session 2 hours. Targer was 190-200 watt. When riding consistently, my 3 AND 5s power readings were in between 120 and 240 watts.
EDIT: Komoot sync wasn’t broken after all. Turns out since a couple of months, you can only sync with komoot if you unlocked the region the route is in. I did two centuries in the same area last summer and it worked fine. Now it didn’t. After I bought the “World Pack”, the route immediately showed up. So this is neither Komoot nor Wahoo to blame, I just wasn’t aware of this.
After updating, my iPhone couldn’t connect to may Elmnt Bolt anymore. I had to unpair and repair on both sides.
I have all my batteries charged, checked the batteries, calibrated my power meter, had a full iPhone battery, newest software updates etc etc. I always make sure of that.
What is going on at Wahoo? Or can their QA only handle one product at a time, now shifting resources to the new Kickr to make sure the fiasco with the previous one doesn’t happen again?
Also: what are the BEST head units you can buy? Regardless of price…
