    I’ve tried to install this on a Fire Stick 4K (by sideloading the app via downloader), but without success.
    This should work, as the firetv is an Andoid TV device.
    During install, it displays after a while the error:
    App not installed.
    Any clues?

      Although that sounds very inventive this isn’t supported hardware for RGT.
      You are welcome to keep trying and I wish you luck with that, but I don’t think you will ever get it to work due to (but not limited to) the lack of processing power and graphics capability of the Fire Stick.

    Hey Guys – I have managed to install it on Chromecast – and all good except the fact that i cannot login.
    App is loading fine – but nothing happens when i try to type email, pass, or click on login.

    Hi Alf! This may well interest other users! While not officially supported by RGT it would be worth you posting your experiences in the Facebook User Group 🙂
    Good luck with the testing!

      Hi Tim,
      I have managed to login using external keyboard.Pressing / holding multiple times Enter (Return key)- i did managed to bring virtual keyboard – and type username and password.
      So i did my first ride yesterday – using latest Google Chromecast as Screen App – and it was great fun.
      I did experienced 2 major (5-10 seconds) dropouts in connection / reposnse when i was pedaling, but on Screen App – my character stopped. With latest chromecast i can’t edit/modify quality of screen app other than LOW settings. (which makes absolutely sense (as squeezing last drops of ram juice from this equipment).
      Not sure if connection was caused by my firewall – but what i have noticed – in order to have updated list of users – android app (not Screen app) – you are using googleusercontent.com on port 80 – where anything else is working on 443 (Secure). I realised that at the end of the ride, and enabled it for port 80 too. Not sure if that is intend (maybe to reduce lag on Secure layer) but i would suggest to use on all thing 443.
      One thing i can mention is in order for Screen App to work on Chromecast it is a must to have Power USB C hub
      (cheapest version is https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0872V922X/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1) and minimum 18W USB-C power supply, and USB stick – to expand Disk space
      If you don’t have those already – then i would recommend buying Apple TV – where a) RGT Screen app is supported, and b) Overall cost of Chromecast + Hub + Power Supply + USB-Stick might be the same as Apple TV.

      Sorry Tim, but i don’t have Crapbook (facebook) – so if you want – feel free to share it on FB group.

      Great Fun.
      With Regards,

      If you haven’t used RGT since the end of November 2021, then everything has changed. You no longer need 2 devices.
      If you go to the Google Store, the old Phone App should be offering an update. Once updated then log in using your original email and password. That process then allows you to run RGT on ANY platform – PC/Android/IOS/ATV. Note that the Android App you update, works but is best viewed on a full screen on PC/MAC/ATV etc.

      All of the relevant software is available from here: https://www.rgtcycling.com/get-started/ . You can also log on to this site and use the down arrow at the top to take you to the downloads 🙂 https://user.rgtcycling.com/

    Unfortunately the phone app no longer runs on Moto G4 with Android 7.0. And Moto G4 will not update beyond Android 7.0. So I am no longer able to control the PC app from my phone. My phone in formed me I needed to update RGT, but I no longer have a phone that will work.
