PM5 Questions

Post by lapresle » January 14th, 2022, 10:45 pm

Hi There. My PM4 stopped working and I ordered a PM5 thinking the connectivity and app would be a better user experience. As I understand it now, the ability to save customized workouts has been stripped out, is that correct? My online logbook is updated with the total meters and time via the app on my phone, but the workout parameters can not be saved and the "Custom" list can't be customized?

I have the clip that mounts on top of the PM5, the screen on my phone shows the same info that's on the PM5 and the voice prompts stop the music streaming from my phone, so I stopped using the app.

The backlight is a nice upgrade, but beyond that, I feel like I took a few steps backwards and now have a monitor that does less than the one I had before. If I'm missing something obvious, please let me know. I've read the manual and just don't get it.

When you put a USB stick in the PM5, you can save workouts. Please note it should be FAT or FAT32 formatted, so make sure it isn't too big.

You are talking about ErgData? Mine does't use voice at all, and by swiping you can see more detailed statistics (and save some to the logbook).
