Great app, video can't catch up

Love the app, and the trainer. Perfecty for the times (Covid-19 stay at home). But the only real issue i have is if i stop a ride mid-way and want to continue later in the day for whatever reason....I can't get the video to pick up where i left off even though the prompt states "continue" i just get a black screen and have to start over! Bit of a pain if i have to jump off for work, call, etc. But all in all a nice app with the trainer. rare is it to find an app with equipment that one can useofr some time to come...most money is wrapped up in the hardware, and many times rightfully so, or both are crap. This is a 9 for the trainer and a 7 for the app. Just need to be able to sync my Fenix 5 - its all Garmin!

I love it BUT!!!

This app, coupled with my Tacx Flux S, has been transformative. The films are wonderful. This is the best thing that has happened to cycling since the derailleur. The app has performed exceptionally well on my MacBook which feeds the image to an HDTV. Never drops the feed. Never loses my data. Workout/ride uploads to Garmin Connect were soooo easy and now, with the S/W updates Garmin is making, automatic. BUT after the most recent IOS upgrade the app can no longer find my MacBook's bluetooth! I contacted Garmin and they know about the issue but after several weeks it's still not fixed. I managed to work around the problem by purchasing an inexpensive Ant dongle and some USB C extention cords but the bluetooth was a preferred connection. Not a fatal problem by any means, but still, it needs fixing. But I go back and reaffirm that this system...the app, smart trainer, TV...has been transformative.

NEO 2T and Garmin Service

Not being tech savy it took me a couple of weeks to figureout the app vs Cloud, login, connecting software/hardwear/devices and how best to work with Garmion Support.
Now I get instant feedback on any support needed either in person or via chat. All the hardwear and softwear connect instantly and seamlessly between the workout or film and Garmin Connect and my TrainingPeaks Calendar. Once saved the data is instantly available on all platforms. Just completed the Garmotte Challenge and it feels like a real accomplishment ... what fun!! Great trainer exceeding my expectations. I used a Computrainer for 12 yrs. but this is soooo much better.
