Tacx Rollers Firmware Update
It is necessary to update your trainer to the latest firmware version available, in order to connect it to the simulator and obtain the best possible experience.
To do this, you need to download the Tacx application for IOS at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tacx-utility/id994480783?mt=8 or Android at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=tacx.android.utility and follow the instructions to update the firmware. Then you can connect it to BKOOL.
The process to update the firmware of your trainer is very easy, but if you have any doubt, we recommend you contact Tacx support.
1.- Open the Tacx app on your mobile device.
2.- Find your trainer and check if there is any firmware update available.
3.- Update the firmware (remember not to close the app or disconnect the power roller).
4.- Once the process is finished, make sure to close the app and disconnect the roller from your mobile by Bluetooth.
5.- You can now pair your trainer with BKOOL Cycling.
If BKOOL Cycling is not able to find your trainer, make sure it is not still connected to your mobile. We remind you that the trainer can only be connected to one device at a time.
