  1. Did SRAM ever get back to you about the 6%? Im also curious how you were able to upscale the readings by 6%, is this something that can be done with the app and have the adjusted readings displayed on your head unit?

    1. No. They did release a follow up firmware that mentioned ‘accuracy’, maybe that was to address it. Scaling can be done within the AXS app.

  2. Hey GP – Did these Quarg / SRAM AXS PM also have a built in Cadence sensor? Or is it basic PM only via Left Hand Crank?

  3. Hey Lama, it’s been a year since your last update on this PM. Any word on if the firmware update corrected the accuracy issues? Any other long term updates/comments?

    1. Nothing official from SRAM on this one. I haven’t looped back to test the firmware updates. Others have tested and found smaller offsets but that’s not from my own testing. If I can get a hold of a new Force Quarq spindle I may test/retest both.
