These are some interesting projects. It gives me an idea.

Why doesn't someone (not me -- don't have time) start an open-source project that combines all of these components into a single, unified whole? Assuming people would be willing to contribute their code, this could turn into a neato thing.

I've started working on an "SDK" for iOS, which aims to wrap the lower-level Bluetooth functionality and make it easy to work with data coming from the PM5. It is being written in Objective-C.
2) What is the status of your project?
I've implemented all the Bluetooth services and characteristics in a simple way. Data can be received from the PM5 and parsed into useful values on iOS. Now I need to discover a bit more about how the PM5 sends data, and what data is relevant for the current state. This is a hobby project, so my timeframe is long and slow.
3) What platform (Mac, Win, Linux, iOS, etc.)?
4) Is the project just for your personal use, or do you intend (or are you) distributing to others?
I hope to publish the project to github when it's in a useable state. I had hoped Concept2 would have been more proactive in enabling developers to do more with the platform. It ultimately results in MORE SALES. I bought and retrofit my Model B with a PM5 specifically to be able to develop apps, only to find the level of developer support and documentation to be painfully lacking / written by low-level engineers who are notorious for writing cryptic documentation. :-) (Sorry, the truth hurts).
5) Do you have a web page for the project?
Nope. Once it's on github, then yes. :D

Have you had any joy sending commands using CSAFE to say set a new workout up on the PM5?

I too am building a layer on abstraction for iOS, i have successfully build out the models for data subscription and retrieval but i am really struggling with sending commands to the PM5, i never get a response and tend vice does not respond either.

Hi there,

Implementation of the C2 SDK specification for talking to C2 ergs that is independent of the C2 SDK libraries:


Hope this is useful :)

It's unlikely since you've bumped/necro'd a five year old thread
