Still unused!

Posted20 January 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: doesn't work
Following a failure from Garmin and Apple to make the driver available for the iPad Air this is still unused. Device is unrecognised when connected via an Apple Lightning to 30-pin. Bit unfair to rate it poorly but I wouldn't recommend it for newer iPad use.

Works well - app needs to improve

Posted11 April 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Cons: Expensive
The adapter works well on iPad and iPhone the only failing is the garmin app doesn't have all the functionality that would be nice. Over time this may improve but until then it still does the job.
Cost of the unit seems high for what I am sure is very small amount of circuitry

Great but not compatible with many Apps

Posted12 January 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Unfortunately its not compatible with most of the Apps out there, so far I've only found the official Garmin App and one called 'Spinning' by iTMP - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/spinning-indoor-cycling-heart/id327797474?mt=8
The Garmin App is ok, if a little basic, and you can't customise any of the screens. Its an iPhone only app also, so looks a little out of place on an iPad
Luckily the Spinning App by iTMP is superb, but it costs a couple of quid. It has iPhone and iPad versions and it'll connect to all of your other Ant+ enabled sensors including power meters. You can create your own workouts (intervals with repeats, warm up/cool down, threshold etc), upload to Facebook, Strava or TrainingPeaks, customise any of the screens, carry our performance tests etc. Perfect when on the rollers.

Does what it claims, but has drawbacks.

Posted18 August 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: limited, shortsighted design
The device does exactly what it claims. Allows you to use all your Ant+ gear with your iPhone, using the Garmin app. It finds nearby accessories quickly and easily (once paired) and records the data without issue.
However...
It does not work with any of the third party apps I looked at. The Garmin app is it for now.
Also it does not fit an iPhone 4 (or 4S) with a bumper cover.

Works with Garmin

Posted27 April 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
Works perfectly with the Garmin range, including the iOS app. Doesn't work with endomondo, which is a bummer.
