Troubleshooting FAQ

Why won't my Speed/Cadence sensor pair to my phone?

  • To ensure that your Speed/Cadence sensor pairs directly to the app you have downloaded, please ensure you have an Bluetooth turned on and a device that supports Bluetooth Smart.

I am struggling to get an RPM reading from the Speed/Cadence sensor and it doesn't show up under the list of sensors?

  • This can be caused by the sensor not being attached securely to your bike chain stay or the magnet is not correctly inline with the sensor. Please ensure that the magnet is directly inline with the sensor and the LED light flashes when the magnet is detected. 

I am struggling to get an Speed reading from the Speed/Cadence sensor and it doesn't show up under the list of sensors?

  • This can be caused by the sensor not being attached securely to your bike forks or the magnet is not correctly inline with the sensor. Please ensure that the magnet is directly inline with the sensor and the LED light flashes when the magnet is detected. If paired to a GPS cycling app, check to see if the device is using GPS for speed, on some devices you will need to select the Speed sensor as the source for bike speed and distance.

Can I pair my Speed/Cadence sensor with another phone or app or ANT+ device?

  • Yes your Cadence sensor can be paired with more than one Bluetooth Smart device or phone/apps. If you are switching between devices or apps then you can still use your sensor for different devices. Simply pair your sensor in the same way as before and you now have a Speed/Cadence sensor for multiple devices.  

 

Can I pair my Speed/ Cadence Sensor to my phone app and ANT+ device at the same time?

  • No this is not possible because the Cadence sensor is Bluetooth Smart only and can only be paired to a Bluetooth Smart compatible device.
