The only update I really got recently was for the display. Didn't change anything I could notice
There's a code that you can enter in MC to render the bike disabled.Took mine in for an update today, I was told that the battery was not an available update (for my LBS anyway), but the display and motor.
Now to see what, if anything.
Does anyone have any knowledge as to what the updates were addressing, changes?
Actually, BLEvo gave me the wheel circumference by default 90.6 or 2300 mm without me changing anything.(I think the wheel circumference is between 90.3 and 90.6 with the Armadillos. No setting between those parameters. ) LBS had changed it to 2000mm when they upgraded motor and display. So, when I changed it to match MC 2000 mm that's when BLEvo gave me the warning about Speed etc. Default 15.6 mph changed to 17 +mph. So, I could of got a couple extra mph on top of the 28 mph but the mileage,range and speed would be way off. I haven't really tested it much after resetting MC/BLEvo. LBS set my wheel size to 2300 mm. Display shows me hitting 28mph in Turbo and 24 mph in Eco. That's how it used to be with default preset. I'm going to test speed/range using GPS setting in BLEvo app. 28mph seemed pretty fast with the Armadillos. Based on my findings will determine if I stay at 90.6 or go down a little to 90.3. The lbs will change it to whatever I want.Kam, while you are here. How is it with entering the correct wheel circumference in BLEvo? Where are you doing it? What parameters does it affect?
I went back to LBS in Woodland Hills. Had wheel size set to 2270 mm. Still display is showing I'm about 2/10 off from GPS. Closer then 2900 mm but still off by substantial amount. Going to have it set back to original 2255 mm. I'm thinking that the wheel size is accurate to the size of the rim's circumference not including the tires. Even then the circumference will be slightly off but closer than the larger settings previously applied to GPS readings. Where it makes a significant difference is when wheel size is set to a much smaller rim size like 2000 mm. Then display readings are way off showing much shorter distance and slower speed measured against GPS.@Kam1936: I'm unable to understand how it works.
I set 2300 mm wheel circumference in BLEvo. Distance ridden as reported by BLEvo = 71.58 km; GPS distance = 69.17 km. BLEvo/Vado was 3.48% off.
Wheel circumference 2255 mm: BLEvo/Vado = 48.50 km. GPS = 47.61 km. Error = 1.87%. (The display distance was, however, 100% accurate with BLEvo readouts but not with GPS).
What's that all about?! (50-622 tyres).
Interesting thought. I think I'll give up all these experiments. There is a BLEvo option to prefer GPS data to the bike data (I think), and I might go for that as GPS is very accurate in my experience. Anyway, BLEvo is very smart: It "cheats" Strava by providing the bike data even if true ride map is sent to Strava along with the metadata. Strava is GPS based, so it is exciting how the BLEvo GPX file is designed (Normally Strava recalculates a provided GPX file to verify the distance ridden; it is not the case with BLEvo).I'm thinking that the wheel size is accurate to the size of the rim's circumference not including the tires.
Lot easier to just pump the tire up and measure the circumference.I just put the same tires on my Vado that Stefan has, and had the LBS set the wheel size to 2250....we shall see, major thaw this week, get a few miles on the clock
Jim: We've done all kind of experiments. It doesn't work that way with Vado.Lot easier to just pump the tire up and measure the circumference.
If you don't have a tape measure or a piece of string (non-stretch please) will do.

For instance, stock Specialized Electrak 2.0 tyres have circumference of 2286 mm. The factory bike setting is 2255 mm. The match between GPS and display is unusually good. Strange, isn't it.
