My battery life appears to be compromised after latest firmware upgrade.
Move off of 100% without even being used.
This is even after a lengthy charge.

Would it be possible to add a power meter battery level metric to the firmware? That would be very nice to have rather than guess at when the power meter has to be sent in for a new battery.
Thanks,
Andy
Ciao! You can see the battery level in the Main menu-Pairing-PowerMeter
Ah, good deal. Sorry I should have done a bit more research!
Hi when i view meter battery level in pairing, my screen is not providing a reading just a dash line. What am i doing wrong?

So I've just cycled the first trip with firmware v2.5.1 in my PC8

Air tempertur outside is -6.5 degrees

The first thing I laid noticed was that after the bike ride to work in 20 minutes, the battery jumped from 100% to 80% :shock:

Then I would upload the trip to Strava and send to e-mail address via WIFI.
Upload to Strava went fine, but file to the e-mail is never reached and it is not in my spam filter.
Can you please send us your settings file? beta@srm.de

Maybe you have an old firmware on the PC8?

Hello all,

Are there any plans to permit bluetooth connectivity to powermeters (and other sensors too)?

I don't know how BLE compares to ANT+ in terms of power consumption, but if it's better it might be nice to be able to connect to BLE powermeters and heart rate straps, and disable ANT. BLE certainly has more flexibility in connectivity – as is already known, you can connect to phones/tablets/computers etc too.

Grazie/Danke

Right now we use ONLY ANT+ for communication to the sensors. In the future maybe. right now the most sensors are ANT+.

Have had my PC8 connect to my computer 2-3 times for upload trainings file to both SrmX and Strava
that was working perfectly.
Then I was out for a short ride and before next ride there has been gone 24 hours and the ride has not been upload
on the computer or via WIFI.
Before this second ride I have then press Pro+Set for reset the short ride and then the PC8 had ask my, if I want to
upload the ride, WIFI was shown as OFF in the setting on the PC8.
I have seen this a five times before.

From my point of view it´s a nice feature to have, but should all ways work that way, every time a ride is reset without connecting the PC8 to a computer
and WIFI all time set to OFF on the PC8, for power saving.
Anybody ho had seen this?
