  Finding a location?

Google Street view says it has 5000km of out back in Mongolia but I can't get the app to find it. What am I doing wrong?

  Early reflections on VZfit explorer
Posted by: Thead - 11-16-2020, 10:18 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

After a few days of using VZexplorer it is time for some early reflections on it.
And those are very shiny. I love the rides, it is more than I expected!  Although it has it flaws i see that these are being handled and it is also nice to see that this is not a shelf product which is left alone. These regular updates are nice and also promising for the future.

What I really have on my wishlist is to race against ghosts,  opponent ghosts or my own ghost. That would be so cool.
With maybe a small minimap on the HUD where those ghosts are.
I have faith in the roadmap for this product and I guess this will be on the devs wishlist as well.

Something else to consider (forgive me if someone else also brought this up):
I have found out that it gives me  maximum immersion if i'm racing with my head down (and looking to the moving concrete) most of the time and every once in a while I look up. (It then also minimizes looking at distortions) The only thing then is that the recenter button and the yellow dot lights up and this really kind of breaks the immersion.
Is there maybe some solution for this? That would be nice.

Is it possible to ride the shoot out horse in explorer instead of the bike?

  Log in Error?
Posted by: cleee - 11-14-2020, 11:40 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

I can't log in. I pedal to connect and it says Checking Membership as usual but instead of taking me to the program, it says Login Error. Please restart and contact support if this happens again. I restarted the program and my headset to no avail. I checked and my account was billed for November so my subscription is active. I'm not sure what's happening. Was looking forward to a ride this evening.

  Can’t move on quest 2
Posted by: Paulm - 11-13-2020, 08:20 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Hi I’ve been using explorer on a go for a few months and love it. I have just bought a quest 2 and the first time I used it it was great, but today I could not move. It found my sensor ok But when I started to ride the rpm stayed at zero and I stayed where I was. I tried restarting but in the end I gave up and went back to the go which worked fine. Any idea how to fix this?

  updated elliptical options
Posted by: rhavloth - 11-12-2020, 03:27 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

Good morning, I just joined yesterday and am really enjoying this - and looking forward to many many hours of enjoyment.  As a long time gamer, I have the oculus quest 2, but needed to be able to up my steps for an office holiday step challenge, and VZFit is exactly what I was looking for.  

I'm using VZFit on my elliptical stepper and have had a couple of 'moment's, but otherwise doing great. 

I have a couple of questions: 
1) I wonder if there are any plans in the works to have an elliptical option with correct mileage, etc. 
2) the games don't seem to work well on the elliptical due to the speed that's required, an elliptical setting might help resolve that.

  Google Streetview Leaks
Posted by: skicavs - 11-11-2020, 10:17 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

On my Mt. Fuji ride, I noticed quite a few Streetview images that hadn't properly blurred the faces. Not sure what your current arrangement with google is, but there could be an interest side-business of gamifying the labeling of auto-blur failures for people, license plates, etc

  HUD issues when starting Explorer
Posted by: llirge24 - 11-08-2020, 06:53 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

FYSA -- Prior to the latest VZFit software build, the HUD would default to the last setting used. Since the latest release, the HUD says it is in "low" mode, however it is clearly not. When I click on it to change it to "high" it doesn't budge, but when I click "low" again, the HUD realigns to the proper "low" setting on the screen.

I’m trying to create a fun ride with lots of amazing things to look at. I did Disneyworld but it took me on the freeway for the whole 18 mile ride. Very boring.
Next day I tried Disneyland but it couldn’t find it. I tried knots berry farm and I saw cool shops for a very short time then it was just streets again.
Does anyone know why we can’t see Disney World or Disneyland? When you pull up Disney World on YouTube ride they have it, but I want to use vzfit.
Can anyone suggest a ride that has a lot of fun and fascinating things to look at. Riding by the different oceans and beaches, hillsides etc. are all fun but after a few miles they tend to get boring.
Thank you everyone

  New User: A couple of Issues
Posted by: Jojobar - 11-08-2020, 12:43 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

I am trying to use this with quest 2 and so far I am impressed with what it offers.

I am using it with Coo Spo Cadence and speed sensor. It picks up alright but it shows large rpm (I seem to be moving faster than the normal traffic). I am using the quest controller to set the parameters

Sometimes it shows me moving against the traffic and there seems to be no way to turn around.

When I try to take a turn, most of the time it misses the turn although I lean as much as 45 degrees

Could not find the altitude indicator so that I can control the resistance of the bike accordingly

When I ride in the city, the graphics is not very clear most of the time. I compared it with Google street view which seems to be much better. I do not mind going through buildings or cars once a while but it would be more fun to be able to read the road signs.

Overall it is novel and to my knowledge nothing like this exists. I have one day of the short evaluation left. I am considering buying the subscription if I can get help regarding some of the above issues.
