The answer to winter training and we have it!
Tacx Trainer software, version II
Tacx Trainer software turns your training into an exciting experience. How would you like to take on twenty other riders for instance? You will see them as cycling figurines on your display, just like your own position. You will also be able to clearly read distance covered, distance left till end of ride and heart rate zone. But there is more that meets the eye. Set up is easy as pie, pop-ups help you work through the menus.
Operation has been simplified. You can now switch very quickly between the different on-screen possibilities. You will determine your preferred training set up. Set up the wide screen or combine several small format screens. Like showing Real Life Video, Google Earth and rider positions in one single screen. This way you can see exactly where you are and how far you have left to go.
Direct link with VR site
The Analyser software is integrated in the start up menus and www.tacxvr.com and your trainer software enjoy a direct link. This is very convenient for the up- and downloading of GPS rides. Because web site and software communicate Tacx Trainer software is extremely user friendly. The menus have been programmed such that they can serve as the basis for future extensions.
The Tacx Trainer software is sold with Catalyst, Catalyst 3D, a Real Life Video demo so you can experience first hand what it’s like to ride inside film and Real Life training, to help you explore itineraries you would never have been able to ride on thru 3D maps by Google Earth.
The excitement on your screen
If you purchase the Trainer software that is also suited for the Tacx Fortius Multiplayer, Fortius or i-Magic VR trainer, you will have the new advanced menus at your disposal. Are you interested? Then order the Tacx Trainer software installation DVD now.
The Tacx Trainer software runs independently from the Fortius software. It is quite easy to import the Real Life Videos and ErgoVideos installed on your computer so you can also use them with this new software. And the Catalyst Fortius training programs can also be transferred making them suitable for the Trainer software. Multiplayer and Virtual Reality are not yet possible in this First version of the Tacx Trainer software. We plan to also add these in the course of 2009.
