Fixing a Bluetooth Connection
Very occasionally, the Bluetooth pairing of a Sure-Path RTK receiver and the phone can go wrong or the Bluetooth module could become faulty. If the former, "unpairing" and then "re-pairing" the device will usually fix things.
Unpairing the device:
- In the phone settings, select "Bluetooth".
- If the device is still paired, it will be listed in "Previously connected devices". The name of a Sure-Path receiver will be in the form RTK_BASE_xxxx or RTK_ROVER_xxxx.
- To unpair, click the device and select "Forget". This will remove it from the list.
Re-pairing the device:
- Ensure the Sure-Path receiver has power.
- In the phone settings, select "Bluetooth"
- Select "Pair new device"
- When the receiver name is listed, click it.
- When prompted for a PIN, enter "1234".
- If pairing is successful, the device will briefly be "connected" and then it will disconnect but will remain in the list of "Previously connected devices" (THIS IS NORMAL!).
- Exit the phone settings and start the Sure-Path app.
- If it is the Base app, open the menu and select "Bluetooth Device", then click the newly paired receiver even if it appears to be already selected.
- If it is the Rover app, open the main menu and select "GPS & Network Settings". Scroll to the bottom and select "Bluetooth Device", then click the newly paired receiver even if it appears to be already selected.
- Close the menu and try to connect to the receiver again by clicking the "Connect" button.
