riding a real route from strava on a turbo

hi, i'm not too savy with such things, so i'd ask for advice.

i watched a demonstration on you tube where a gpx file (a real ride) workout was downloaded from strava via the cloud and replicated in "slope" mode in the Tacx app. it looked good in google map view.

is this type of function available on other products software. ie, elite, wahoo? or is this a tacx app only thing right now. i'm not on zwift as of yet btw. the example was by shane millar.

    Elite Real Video will do a virtual ride with ERG mode if you film the route with your iOS device and upload it. Garmin and Wahoo will let you ride routes on a compatible turbo using ERG mode, but you'll just get a map image rather than scenic ones.
    I ride a bike. Doesn't make me green or a tree hugger. I drive a car too.

    BKool do exactly that - you upload your GPX (and video if you have one) and they transform it into a route that you - and anyone else - can ride...

    thanks guys.

    i've downloaded the tacx apps and imported a few road routes. i've created a few training routines to get started and just need the neo to arrive this week.
