Connect your Tacx Smart trainer to the Tacx Desktop app and the world will be your playground! Dive into a large high quality interactive film collection and ride scenic routes from all over the globe. Beat the steep and long climbs from the Alpes and the Pyrenees and conquer the cobblestones of Roubaix, straight from your living room.

While you see the route going by on your screen at your own speed, the trainer’s resistance is adjusted to the grade in the video. The trainer sends your power, speed and cadence to the device where it is displayed clearly on your screen. Afterwards you can analyze your data to keep track of your performance and you can upload your training data to Strava.

dies before it opens:-(

I was very excited to see this app working with my Neo but I can’t get it to start. Iike to think it will be fixed in the future.

Won’t launch

As soon as it tries to launch, it crashes. Judging from the comments, this has been going on for months and Tacx hasn’t bothered to respond or issue a fix. That’s not a good sign.
