Getting started with ANT can seem a bit intimidating, but all of the resources you will need can be found on the website.

First, you should check out the ANT Basics page. It steps you through which documents you should read first including the ANT Message Protocol and Usage document (aka the "ANT Bible").

Next you'll want to check out the Starting Your Project page. From there it'll you tips on how to get started, no matter which platform you are developing for.

If you're starting development on a PC, please also read the Getting Started with ANT PC Development application note. The Documents page hosts many application notes which provide a wealth of information on how to use a variety of features of ANT.

Hello,
I'm new and I would like to start an ANT software application and acquire Power and HR (bike application) at the PC. What do I need exactly? Which kind of USB stick should I buy?
Thank you!

Hi,

I would recommend looking at SimulANT+ and the App Note on how to use the SimulANT+ Library to write your own apps.

Any ANT USB Stick should work for your purposes, but the latest model is the ANTUSB-m device.

Cheers

When I attempt to access the downloads page I get the message:

"The URI you submitted has disallowed characters."

The address I'm using (following a link from "I want to create a: software application") is

Hi,

Where did you happen to find that link? It appears to be an invalid address, this one should get you where you need to go:

Hi all guys, I'm new here. I would like to ask you for your advice, in short, I have been working as an essay review expert for several years now, my job is to review popular essay writing sites for quality and reliability. I am looking for an application in order to optimize my work, maybe you know of some application that would help me to parse sites from the search results? I will be very grateful!

Hi, I'd like to ask how to get ant+ softdevice for evaluation use.
I used this page

However there are no answer for more than two weeks. Is that page still valid?
Thank you
