not sure what you're trying to do. A little more detail would help. Are you trying to connect your android phone to a bluetooth module, or are you trying to connect your v5.3 computer software to a bluetooth module?

For the computer, there is no bluetooth specific software required for vbar. You just change the execution string on your shortcut to
C:\Program Files\VStabi_52\jre\bin\javaw.exe" -Xmx200M -jar "C:\Program Files\VStabi_53\VStabiShell.jar" -c config_53 -b -n
note, everything from C:\Program Files to .jar" is your program path. If you installed somewhere other than the C drive, or created a directory other than the default, that portion will be unique to your computer.

protip: if vbar software is already working over USB, then rename your original 5.3 shortcut to "vbar USB"; make a copy of it and rename the copy to "vbar Bluetooth" ...then change the -u to -b in the connection string.

if it ain't broke, break it.

oh..android. The version numbers don't sync with the computer version. Latest version of android software is the right one.

If you're using an ebay bluetooth module, it needs to be reprogrammed first. It won't work out of the box. At the VERY least the name of the device needs to start with the letter 'v'. You also need to set the passcode.

If you got the mikado branded bluetooth module I believe it works out of the box. You just need to pair it with your phone first.

if it ain't broke, break it.

I only ever used the eBay modules. But if you got the rjx vbar module I'm thinking you should be good to go.

Does the Bluetooth app allow you to access the "Pro" version items?

Does it also work with NEO?

Thanks

Not with NEO.

As for older units I'm not sure about the pro features as I only ever had pro vbars. I could be wrong but I'd assume non-pro features would not work as this is an official mikado app and would likely recognize the different licenses loaded.

if it ain't broke, break it.

I guess it's call the advanced features for the old Vbar.

Thanks for the information cudaboy!!

No. something to do with Apple not opening the specific ports required in the BT spec. And even if the ports are opened now, BT has been discontinued by Mikado. So no hope of it ever working.

I bought a $20 droid smartphone off of Craigslist just to keep in my toolbag.

if it ain't broke, break it.
