New CABLE Firmware 1.9.2 & App Update 1.2.12Featured
CABLE Util is the NEW App Name!
Try searching for CABLE Util in the App Store when downloading or updating your CABLE.
Along with the new name, we have a few changes that will help give you the best connected experience with your CABLE.
Choose Desired Unit Measurement
Toggle to switch your unit measurement from English to Metric in the menu.
Setting wheel circumference in CABLE is very important. It needs to be set to match the size of the wheel on the bike it is being used with.
No More "Double Tap" To Turn On
CABLE is now always on! CABLE automatically connects to the CABLE Utility app making setting up your CABLE much, much easier.
All you need to do is bring your CABLE close to your smartphone, open CABLE Utility and CABLE will automatically connect. It's that easy.
Setting up and using your CABLE with your favorite fitness app is also much easier. Just make sure your sensors are active, open your fitness app, pair the CABLE to the app, and you are ready to workout. What is even better though is after you have set up your CABLE in your app, the app should just automatically connect the next time you are ready to workout. How simple is that!
Now, you might think that the always on operation is going to impact the CABLE’s battery life. Great news! it doesn’t. You can expect the same battery life as before even though it is always on.
Change Your Bluetooth Output Name
One of our most requested features is the ability to change a sensor set’s name to make it easier to find when connecting/pairing the CABLE to a fitness app. With this new CABLE release, you can now change the Bluetooth name. Each name is limited to five characters like “ Zwift” or “MTNB1;” but even with this limitation, we think pairing and using the CABLE with your favorite fitness app will be much easier.
New LED Flash Patterns
CABLE has red and green LEDs that help guide you when you are using CABLE with your sensors and your fitness app. We have enhanced the LED operating modes to provide better feedback to you in what the CABLE is doing.
In addition to these new features, we have fixed the issue with the speed and cadence not going to 0 when stopped (speed) or coasting (cadence). Saving your wheel circumference will remain saved.
With the new firmware update, Is there any way to turn the "Wake-by-tapping" feature back on? I can't find an option with the app menu.
I am having trouble managing multiple CABLE units now with my Apple TV/Zwift since the update. When using Zwift, I can't easily get the Apple TV to forget the last CABLE sensor set. And when I try to pair a different CABLE unit, Zwift says I don't have enough available bluetooth channels. I have Multiple CABLE units because I have Multiple bikes, each with a different cadence sensor (the cadence sensor built into my smart trainer is unreliable) I also have one for a footpad/treadmill.
With the old firmware I would simply tap the CABLE unit that I wanted to use, and none of the other units were active. So there was no confusion for the Apple TV.
Now, to get it to switch, I have to occupy the last-used CABLE unit with the CABLE config app, so that Apple TV can't interact with it. Then restart the apple TV, and THEN select the CABLE unit I want to use. I have also tried putting the unused CABLE units in a metal Altoids box with aluminum foil wrapped around it. And somehow the Apple TV will still detect a very weak signal and still select the last-used unit. And it will still detect and report the power from my smart trainer.
Is there a way to do this?
When you have your CABLE connected to the CABLE Util, select "Change Bluetooth Name." You can customize the name you want for that CABLE and it will show up when connecting your device in your fitness app. So if you name each of your CABLEs, you will be able to know which one is which when selecting it in your fitness app.
My Cable device refuses to update the firmware. The device is recognised by the app and the app gives me an option to update now or do it later. When I select the option to update now, the app closes and the device goes to sleep after about 30 seconds of greed blinking led at 1-2 sec intervals.
my current Firmware is version 1.6.14
hardware is Version 1.0
app is version 1.2.12
