Not a Problem

Hi, i am facing a problem with the Garmin Ant+ temp sensor. In the past this sensor was perfectly working within locus on my previous phone but on the current Samsung S21 with the ant drivers installed Locus keep sending me messages the ant+ software drivers are not installed while they are. Is this a bug ?

Hi,

the ANT drivers can be installed but if your phone is not equipped with the ANT hardware, it is not possible to connect to any ANT device. I can't see your phone among the supported devices: https://www.thisisant.com/directory/. Anyway, test your phone with the ANT testing app and you'll see.

Hi, thanks for your answer, and based on your suggestion it could be i have with my new phone a incompatibility.

I have runned the test and result attached. Based on the results, should the garmin Ant+ temperature device work in Locus? my assumtion was yes.

Yes, the sensor should work with Locus but on a phone with ANT. Your phone obviously does not have ANT. Unfortunately. more and more phone producers are abandoning this protocol.
