THIS KEY DOES NOT WORK WITH POWERPOD LITE
If you own a PowerPod ANT without BLE functionality, it's very possible you can add BLE functionality to it, with the PowerPod BLE Upgrade Key!
After installing the BLE key, your PowerPod will work with BLE-capable bike computers such as Polar, and also most recent-vintage iOS/Android smartphones.
With your BLE smartphone you'll now be able to use popular apps such as Strava, Wahoo Fitness, and PowerHouse Bike (see below!)
HOW TO CHECK THE COMPATIBILITY OF YOUR POWERPOD
USE ISAAC SOFTWARE TO CHECK YOUR POWERPOD SERIAL NUMBER, WHICH WILL BE OF THE FORM:
xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx QQ xx AB xx xx xx
"xx" are numbers which you can ignore. The highlighted "QQ" number is the number you want to check.
If "QQ" is 83 or 93, then your PowerPod can be upgraded to a BLE unit with the PowerPod BLE Upgrade Key!
If QQ is any number other than 83 or 93, your PowerPod cannot be upgraded to BLE functionality.
HOW THE UPGRADE WORKS
After you've determined your PowerPod will work with the BLE upgrade, here's what to do:
1) Purchase the BLE Upgrade Key
2) You'll receive an email from us, requesting your PowerPod serial number
3) email us your serial number
4) You will receive a return email from us, containing the BLE Upgrade Key for your PowerPod
5) Install your key using Isaac
Once your key is installed, your PowerPod will transmit its data simultaneously in BLE and ANT+ formats, and your PowerPod will work with the new PowerHouse Bike app. All other features of your PowerPod will remain unchanged!
