    Hi Adam, sorry to be a pain... but tonight I tried to setup my Mega XL on my Trainer.  I created a new Bike Profile, connected my Kickr as a Power Meter, my Garmin HR strap and my Wahoo Cadence Sensor.  Everything but the Cadence is working perfectly.  I tried pairing the cadence sensor via Ant+ and Bluetooth.  Both times it connected/paired fine, but no cadence data would appear on the GPS. Not sure what is going on?  On my gravel bike I am connected to my Power2Max Powermeter, I get power and cadence displaying fine from it.  Any ideas on what is going on and how I can get my cadence recording on the GPS from the wahoo cadence sensor? Thanks, Greg

    Hi Greg,

    We're not technically compatible with any smart trainers, so that's working against us (we're adding it in the future). Please review this article.

    Also, check out this article.

    Hopefully, all that sheds some light on it.

    I have a problem with the speed and cadence sensor! I can get speed data but no cadence data when connected to Mega XL. Interestingly, when I pair the sensor with my iPad (Sufferfest), I get double the cadence (90 rpm shows as 180rpm).

    When using the sensor, the red/green lights both blink (so it is correctly installed). I pair the device without problem. I tried taking battery in/out; updating firmware on Mega. Any idea what happens?

    MacLehose - do you have any other sensors connected to your Mega XL?  My cadence works (with a Garmin Cadence or a Wahoo Cadence Sensor) when paired to the Mega XL except when I connect my Kickr to it as a powermeter.  As soon as I connect the Kickr my Cadence stops displaying data -  but remains connected to the Mega XL..

    Gwoity - I have a KICKR too, but it doesn't seem to matter what is connected to my Mega XL. I tried disconnecting everything except S&C. The S&C sensor only broadcasts speed data!

    Hello. I have Lezyne Micro GPS unit and successfully paired Sigma ANT+ cadence and HR sensors. I also get valid values. However, the Micro GPS homescreen shows connected sensors but no battery status. How do I get this to work? Thank you for helping me

    I believe you only get battery status when connected using bluetooth.

    Correct. ANT+ does not support battery status.
