I feel sick as I write this but I need some racing to stay sharp(there are certain efforts I cant do outside of a race, mentally). Has anyone got zwift working on a PC ? If yes do you use the companion add on? Did you need new bluetooth drivers ? I really dont want to buy an IPAD for something I really dont want.

Gobi - yes, I have zwift working on a PC, Mac, iPad and iphone.

I tend to have the main event running on one, the companion app on one of the others.

I didn't need to install anything over and above the zwift software / companion app.

Zwift is pretty good. Hope your tears dry!

I run mine off PC and IPhone, long while since I set it up but I remember

- I did need upgraded graphics card
- I stuck in one of those Ant+ receivers, which I think receives my watt bike bike data.
- then WiFi to connect PC to internet às normal.

Certainly no arsing around with Bluetooth drivers and only have the companion app on my phone.

I only use the companion app when not riding (to book events mainly) and mine is a simple one way set up no erg mode or anything just the watts and cadence on my Wattbike converting to a Zwift speed.

No experience of any of these, but did see that RGT is currently free to use due to the virus crisis.

turns out this isnt strictly true

Installed and using it for just over 3 weeks now , I'm still not gaming but the racing is pushing me hard and that means I am having to accept the value of the App.

Arse :¬)

2 days short of 11 months and I am level 50 , have done 46 Alpes and plan for 4 more before the year is out. I race 2 or 3 times most weeks and have done a number of 5 hour rides.

I guess that says it all really.

Got something to say?
