The Stages Cycling app and your Dash no longer seem to sync properly. 


The Stages Cycling app uses your phone's Bluetooth radio to communicate with the Dash. As a security measure, the Dash requires a "Bonded connection" (which you can find more information about here). Because this connection includes many variables between your phone hardware, operating system, device, and app version, there are several troubleshooting steps to try to help remedy this connection issue. This article will walk you through the steps to try before creating a support ticket.

Before troubleshooting

  • Make sure Bluetooth is turned on from your Android or iOS Bluetooth settings menu (native to the phone, not associated with the Stages Cycling app). 
  • Restart the Dash.
  • On your device, turn Bluetooth off, then back on. 
  • Close and reopen the Stages Cycling app. 
  • Make sure your device is allowing Stages Cycling app permission to use Bluetooth or Location services (Android, includes Bluetooth). Permissions can be found
