The Xert Remote Player is a web-based app that receives data being collected and processed by your Garmin Edge Connect IQ device or Xert Mobile for Android and displays the data in real-time via your browser.

You can view the Remote Player from any device with recent browser such as your PC, tablet or mobile phone:

You can open the Remote Player in its own dedicated window, resize the window and use browser zoom in/out features (CTL – and CTL + on MS Windows or Command- and Command+ on MacOSX) to make the elements in the window larger or smaller.

Trainer Control with other apps

In order to avoid conflict of having more than one app control your smart trainer, you will have to choose how you’d like to perform the Xert workout and setup apps accordingly.  There are two ways to perform Xert smart workouts with other apps:

  1. Have Xert control the trainer with the Xert Workout Player for CIQ or Xert Mobile.
  2. Have your other app (Zwift, etc.) control the trainer and you use the slider/target power on our apps together with gearing to match the target power.

To use Option 1. you’ll need to remove the smart trainer from your other apps so that they don’t interfere with the trainer control being performed by the Xert CIQ or Xert Mobile app.

To use Option 2. disable trainer control from our CIQ app by tapping menu (Edge 1000, 820) or click the BACK (Edge 520) and choose OFF.  From Xert Mobile, use the Scan menu and uncheck FE-C under your smart trainer’s configuration dialog.
