Does anyone know of a stand alone ANT+ to Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE) bridge device?
I have a Garmin Edge 810, which uses ANT+ ... but I would also like to track my rides on my iPhone 5S (which has BTLE, but ANT+ is a hassle).
I'm looking for a device that will correctly bridge ANT+ to BTLE so the iPhone will pick up the data as well as my 810. I specifically want the bridge to work with a HRM, speed/cadence sensor (combo, like Garmin GSC10), and separate speed & cadence sensors.
I've tried the 4iiii Viiiva, but it doesn't work properly due to a proprietary protocol (or just lack of adoption by the app developers). I had high hopes for this device, but it can't provide accurate data (yet). http://www.geekyramblings.net/2013/12/03/viiiiva-hrm/
I know about the Wahoo RFLKT, but I don't need the display and would prefer something cheaper that I can stuff in my jersey pocket or seat bag.
I need something that will handle multiple devices at the same time without dropouts.
The manual upload issue is kind of moot now, as Garmin connect can now upload my rides to Strava automatically. I can now turn on BT at the end of my ride and the 810 will upload the ride to Garmin Connect and Garmin uploads to Strava.
The live tracking was never a critical function.
I'd still like to get some kind of bridge so I can use my ANT+ accessories on the bike when using a trainer and an iPad trainer app without having to use the Wahoo ANT adapter. I'll probably be upgrading to a lightning based iPad and I've heard the 30 pin adapter for lightning devices tends to be iffy.
