Bluetooth GPS
Switch on the Bluetooth GPS receiver. A green light will appear at the front of the device. If you have several devices, switch on only one GPS at the time to avoid incorrectly paired system. Bluetooth ID is not printed on the Bluetooth GPS case. Bluetooth GPS must be paired with the terminal before it can be used with Handy-A. Select Menu/Settings/Wireless & Networks/Bluetooth settings and select Bluetooth to switch on Bluetooth. Scan available Bluetooth devices by selecting Scan for devices and then pair the Bluetooth GPS. Pairing requires a PIN which is 0000 (four zeros). You will see Paired but not connected under paired GPS device. That is normal at this point.
