Optimize your results – How to set up your SideAntennas


Based on the lessons learned since the introduction we recommend the following setup to optimize your results:


  • Keep a 3 meter distance between the first and the second couple of antennas
  • Make sure the SideAntenna is positioned at least 2 meters away from fences, cars etc.
  • When using the steering plates or bibs on a bike, make sure the tag is positioned free from the handlebar (on the bottom of the plate)
