Bluetooth connection tip, great one it works
I installed the BTGW to my twin D6-370 EVC-C installation yesterday and faced the same issues as others to try to connect. I scoured all my old phones for a device that could pair and load the software for the update to no avail.
I decided to try to connect my Windows 10 laptop to the BTGW and lo and behold it showed up in my list of discoverable devices. As soon as I started the app on my iPad it showed up, I entered the Bluetooth PIN and everything started working. My guess is that somehow the Windows discovery step changed the device internal state to allow the IOS12 pairing to proceed. BTW, one the app made the connection it did a update the firmware on the device and I’ve had no problem connecting since.
I ended up re-wiring my NMEA2000 bus while I had the helm open and now all my devices are talking. The new BTGW fully replaced the original NMEA2000 Gateway with the same form factor and cabling, so it was really a drop in upgrade. I now have data for the engines and all the NMEA devices appearing in the app, very nice!
Sea trials next to get a real feel for how to use these capabilities, but I like the promise this brings and the opportunity for more innovation with the wireless connectivity to the boa data.
Was excited to get this, but then Very disappointed that it will not pair with my IPhone 7+ or my new iPad mini. This is something that should be very easy to do correctly for Any company. I really expected more from Volvo-Penta.
Unable to pair with Bluetooth with latest version
Pairing screen flashes by before you can enter passcode and results in failure msg
