Stages has just released an update to both their cycling app and their firmware for their power meters. According to Stages:
“While we cannot personally verify the quality of a rider installed replacement battery, this latest firmware revision directly addresses the issue of random premature battery failure or draining that a small percentage of our customers have experienced and are vocal about,” said Pat Warner, Stages Cycling’s senior vice president. “With this new firmware we’re also gaining 10-percent more battery life in the unaffected meters, so it’s a big win for us all around.”
Step 1 - Update Stages App
Step 2 - Connect to your Stages Power Meter
You can use Bluetooth or ANT+ to connect to the Stages Power Meter. From there, there will be a "Firmware" button. Press it to update.
Step 3 - Zero Reset your Stages Power Meter
- Position the crank straight down (6 o’clock position) and the bike is stable.
- Access the settings function of the wireless display.
- Select the power sensor (many times the power sensor is located within a “BIKE” setting).
- Select the “CALIBRATE” or “Zero” function.
- Calibration of the zero offset will begin and take only a few seconds to complete.
- Upon completion the display will show a message indicating success or failure of the procedure.
