Software Updates
Year 10 and Newer GPS Devices (2017-2018 Model Years)

For Mega GPS Devices:

New Features:
  • FE-C Trainer Data: Record data from “smart” stationary bike trainers.
  • Manually set base elevation before starting a ride
    • If you are in an area where GPS signal is poor (surrounded by mountains or tall buildings) and you know your starting elevation, go to: Menu > Info > GPS > Set Elevation. Here you can set your starting elevation and it will remain correct for the duration of your ride. When starting a new ride, it will default back to "auto."


New Device Data Fields:
  • Max. Power
  • Total Work in Kilojoules
  • Optional data fields for navigation and/or map pages
Improvements:
  • Improved Ant+ and Bluetooth connection with external sensors
    • Note: When connecting to a sensor for the first time, GPS device must now be held within a few centimeters from sensor’s signal point.
  • Bluetooth connection improvements between GPS device and Ally v2 phone app for new and recently updated phones.
  • Improved step-by-step device setup for first time GPS device users.
  • Improved barometer data fusion with GPS data for more consistent elevation readings.
  • Improved auto-pause functionality when GPS signal is lost while riding through a tunnel.
  • Increased file size for map transfers from GPS Root to Mega GPS devices.
  • Improved map transfer interaction and clarification for offline maps in the phone app. New icons detail which maps are on the phone and/or on the device. Plus, app map will now outline which areas have already been downloaded.

  • Improved Strava Live Segments list of synched segments in the device menu. Includes segment name and KOM/PR times.
