PP on Trainer- TACX VORTEX Smart on Zwift with Powermatch

Postby drashkum » Mon Nov 06, 2017 3:37 am

Hi,
I have recently bought a TACX Vortex Smart Indoor trainer for zwifting. Zwift now allows powermatch feature by which it can use power data from the powermeter rather than from trainer so that the power value will not vary greatly from outdoor and indoor rides. Is it possible to configure PP with the trainer. i tried the trainer settings and there is no TACX Vortex smart there. Is there a way i can get consistent readings from PP and make powerpod talk to the Zwift on ANT+ mode?. And also since PP is not a DFPM and there is no opposing force / wind on the trainer, How accurate will be the powervalues of PP on the trainer since smart trainer also varies the resistance according to the terrain automatically? and how much variance will be there in power between the indoor power from PP to the outdoor when i am riding?

Kindly reply

PP will not work with outdoor measurements in an indoor environment.
