@JohnFromGWN for that use case I would recommend a heart rate strap and a software on your phone that converts the HR into virtual power like HR2VP
@JohnFromGWN I'm not sure if a foot pod will work properly if you walk in place without a treadmill. They use accelerometers to calculate the length of your stride and thus the distance and speed you are running or walking. Without an actual stride (walking in place) they probably won't detect speed. For walking anyway, you don't need a fully featured treadmill, a used walking treadmill is probably only a hundred bucks or less.
@ollyolly you need any treadmill and a ANT+ footpod sensor or a BLE running speed sensor. There are a few in the market and they are not very expensive. The Zwift pod for example is $40. If you have a modern running Garmin watch, that may work as well
@omerta0414 if they broadcast ANT+ speed or power or Bluetooth speed or power, then yes.
@g-coded after @rickstrada message, now I know of 2 bikes, the Concept2 bikeERG should work too and is on the affordable side.
@rickstrada From what I've seen on the internet the Concept 2 bikeERG should be broadcasting ANT+ FEC profile, so it should work. Is the ANT indicator in the menu showing a green light? if not, your ANT dongle can be "taken" by another application on the PC. You can also ask in the Facebook group and post a screenshot of the debug windows (F11) and the ANT log file located in the GTA V directory (if you launch the game as an administrator)
@g-coded you are right, most of the smart indoor bikes are too expensive. I only know one that is not that expensive and supports all the standards, but their distribution network is very limited, the Zycle Zbike (former Bkool smart bike), Anyways I find having a bike and a trainer a more versatile option
@g-coded the qdomyos app looks like a simple bluetooth bridge. If it bridges to Cycling Power, Cycling Speed and cadence and Heartrate Bluetooth services, then it will work with GTBikeV, althought it won't be able to control the resistance, but if it only bridges to FTMS it won't work at all, as FTMS is not supported yet. My personal opinion is that setup is very complicated when you can find similar indoor bikes with direct ANT or BLE capabilities that don't require a bridge.
I can't understand either why they made that bike without a standard communication profile/protocol.
@cebe If you are getting a crash I would like to see what the log files contain (specially scripthookVdotnet.log but also the ble receiver log)
@EQ0814 FTMS is planned for future releases, when I get an actual device that supports FTMS (my trainer doesn't)
