Ant+ not connecting with Tacx Training Software.

Updated on , by Michael Peberdy

So, the other day I was sitting at my computer trying to get my Tacx training software to recognise my Vortex break. It was frustrating the hell out of me.


I tried updating windows, taking out the USB dongle and putting it in new ports, restarting the computer and installing new drivers.


Still none of this worked.


Deep down in some tech info from Tacx I found that actually the Garmin express program can hijack the Ant+ dongle.


The solution to this problem was to simply close Garmin express (fully close, not just let it run in the background) and then instantly, the Tacx software found my Break and head unit.


Problem solved. Hope this helps save a few poeple pulling their hair out.
