Wahoo RFLKT

I bought a RFLKT at the great price they had recently but must say I'm a little underwhelmed. It constantly loses it's connection with the handset, leaving me with a blank screen. I only use it to display my time/speed so only basics but it's frustrating that it keeps dropping. Has anyone else had similar issues?
I want to try the turn by turn option but there's no point if the basics can't work.

    I use a RFLKT a lot, on both my MTB and road bike. I have had a few dropouts but have found that making sure there is as little between the phone and the RFLKT as possible helps. Now I put it in my central pocket on the back of my jersey, with the screen facing backwards so the back of the phone against my back). I make sure there is no wallet or other stuff in the same pocket. Since doing this I have not dropped once. I also put a new battery in it, although I don't think this was the issue.

    I use an iPhone 7 in a thin case and use the Wahoo Fitness app, which I then upload to Strava at the end of a ride.

    I was not aware of a turn-by-turn capability. :shock:
    Cube Reaction GTC Pro 29 for the lumpy stuff
    Cannondale Synapse alloy with 'guards for the winter roads
    Fuji Altamira 2.7 for the summer roads

    I run mine similarly, but with an Android Sony phone.I store mine in the midle pocket too, although an oversize me in the way may effect things i guess. might try in one of the side pockets or the saddle bag!

    Turn by turn requires Ride with GPS

    Now looking at getting speed/cadence sensors to make better use of my newly acqquired turbo. Does anyone have recommendations.
  • The Wahoo ones have served me well. Alternative would be the Duotrap if you have the suitable recess in your frame.
