Locating the ANT+ ID: The 4-5 digit ID number appears in several stickers applied to the crank arm. 

5. Enter the ANT+ ID from the crank sticker in using the following keys:

Use the BACKLIGHT button to advance the digit. The number will increase from 0-9 and return to 0.

Place the crank arm in the 6 o'clock position with NO weight on the pedal to successfully zero reset. This process will take several seconds, but the console will display SUCCESS once it is completed.

What to do if the pairing has failed?

1. Check that the crank has new batteries installed,
2. Make sure the crank has been rotated,
3. Hold the console close to the power crank in order to avoid interruptions from other ANT+ devices in the area

What if you do not know the ANT+ ID?

Enter all zeros in for the ANT+ ID and the console will search for the power meter.
