Train on the Tacx with an iPad
The Tacx Cycling app makes it possible to train with a tablet computer. Genius, Bushido and Vortex riders with a tablet can now train using this free app, developed for the iPad. The Tacx Cycling app contains a simplified version of the Catalyst training software, the Analyser and Real Life Video to play Tacx films.
Professional training programs and fitness tests for a scientific analysis of your training session. Train on heart rate, power output or slope. Follow your development and become a better rider step by step.
Analyser presents the recorded training data on the screen of the tablet. Your performance is displayed in a graph.
Cycling in a Tacx film makes a training session more enjoyable and adventurous. The speed of the film is influenced by your cycling pace. If you are cycling up a mountain, the brake of your trainer will generate so much resistance that you can actually sense the percentage of incline. A demo film from the Mont Faron, Toulon in France is included. In the Tacx Cycling app you will find a list of all film titles that have been developed specifically for the app. These have a distance of about 30 km.
Note: The Tacx download films for the Tacx Trainer software and the Tacx films for the Cycling app cannot be combined with each other. The films for the Tacx Trainer software can be ordered via the Tacx Online shop. The films for the Tacx Cycling app can be ordered via the app itself.

Ratings and Reviews
I had my trainer an App for lest few years. App never worked right. Running films and in the middle of workout brake is loosing resistance! According to app brake is still connected! In another words: brake and app or at least one of them is a piece s$?!'! Sometimes I have similar issues with the software on my PC! I run older model of i-Genius and so far nobody can find fix for the issues.
Very very poor - lots of Bluetooth issues
The app almost always will fail to connect to the Tacx trainer via Bluetooth.... Pretty much a given that I'll have to spend 15-20 minutes trying to trouble shoot connectivity issues.... the app "sees" my trainer under the list of nearby devices but just won't connect to it. Incredibly annoying. The online help / Tacx support is totally useless.
And unfortunately the full value of the trainer is only realized when connected and using the online workouts... so connectivity issues leave you feeling like this pretty pricey piece of gear isn't worth it...
