Can I use more than 5 DOT sensors at once?

Yes, 5 DOT sensors is a limitation that we set in our app at the moment. However, the physical limitation comes with the operating system, that you’re using on your device. So check the specification of your system and give a try yourself.

How is the data transferred from the phone to Mac/Windows for further analysis?

You can transfer the data recordings from Xsens DOT app to PC or Mac by using an USB cable. You either connect your phone to it and transfer the data manually, or you can store the data in your phone, and then using external software to download files, an example could be Google Drive. The third option could be to develop your own app, this way you have the greatest flexibility in order to decide where and how you can transfer your data.
