External ANT+ and android phone

Recommended Posts

I was wondering whether it is possible to use an external ANT+ device with the appropriate downloadable software to search for CHIRP devices.

 

e.g. on  Tacx ANT+ Micro USB Dongle For Android  http://www.wiggle.co.uk/tacx-ant-micro-usb-dongle-for-android?utm_source=affiliate-window&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_campaign=Monetizer101&utm_term=Monetizer101&utm_content=Sub+Networks 

 

Anyone any experience of using this?

Most modern Androids are already capable of using ANT+ out of the box. Maybe you should try that first. You can use this app for that.

Surprisingly, the Pixel 2 isn't one of them. Even after adding applicable apps, you still need a dongle or some additionally physical device. Hopefully, the new soon-to-be-released Pixel 3 will be out-of-the box ready.

I don't think mine is as I have tried downloading an app and it said no ANT+ device detected.
