    Yes. Set at 61 and 180.
    No matter what the HR I still have 5 steady red lights.

    Try setting up the blue tooth again.
    Have you had a look at the online help ? Contact wahoo see what they say it maybe a fault
    Is the software up to date ?

    Wahoo are on the case, they asked for screenshots of app and invoice etc. I have re set the Bluetooth and will try again when I go out later.

    Did a re set of Bluetooth and went for a ride, all seems OK now, all the colours as per HR.

    Now all I need to do is sort the turn by turn out, the breadcrumb route works well but no sound or flashing LEDs. I used a quick route I made on Strava if that makes a difference.

    I’ve always had best results from Komoot. Could never get turn-by-turn to work from Strava without issue.
    Also, regarding wacky sensor readings, I’ve found that telling the device to forget the sensor and re-pairing usually resolves things. Failing that, checking sensor firmware is up to date from the Wahoo Utility app and finally swapping the battery will generally sort it.

    One quirk I got reminded of last night was that if you normally use a speed sensor but then go for for a ride without it, it can take quite a while for the head unit to start using GPS again for speed/distance. Never worked out how to solve that one.

    I used ridewithgps and get full turn by turn warning you don't get that with routes plotted on Strava

    Another +1 for Wahoo, and the app, recently updated to allow a quick Take me to.. ability, which I think is amazing!

    I really like the no colour screen, and the battery life. In France last year we had no issues following our preplanned RWGPS routes.
    Fantastic and well worth my £s!

    I have the Wahoo Elemnt about 12 months old and software is up to date. I can't see this feature please could you point me to it.

    Thanks

    I would have expected you to see chevrons showing the route you're following. I do though have an Elemnt.

    Sounds and lights have to be turned on in Settings.

    I don't think Strava will give turn by turn instructions. I use RWGPS which has proved faultless with the Elemnt unlike with my Garmin 810. I get directional lights, left and right arrows, road name and countdown distance to next turn often from miles away.

    It’s on the phone app, I believe under Routes, I’ll check later and give you the location in the app if I can!

    If I may...
    In the app tap "view Rourtes"
    In the bottom right of the screen there is a blue button with a "+" sign - hit that
    Hit "Take me to".

    I find it a bit fiddly, but it will get you out of a jam

    Thank you. I never play enough with these things. I'll try it out on Sunday when I'm on the club ride - we are doing a route I know like the back of my hand. I'll do "Take me to" "home" at the cafe and see what happens.

    Komoot needs a one off investment of £30, and RWGPS needs a subscription either monthly or annually. Which is the best value? Leaning towards the one off Komoot.
