FIELD HAWK AND TRACKER EXTREME

Post by Richard Sands » Mon Jun 23, 2008 12:44 am

This setup for me is proving a rather fickle bluetooth connection. The bluetooth drops out for no apparant reason. If the Tracker isn't used for about 1.5 minutes the connection fails and I have to re-pair and re-connect Field Genius to the instrument.
Haven't seen any commnets on this Forum. Wondering how others are finding this combination.
regards
Richard

You might want to dissable the power save features such as sleep mode to see see if that changes the behaviour on the Tracker. Unfortunatley on the Tracker when the power goes off either from pressing the power button, or when sleep mode is triggered, the Bluetooth connection will get dropped. When this happens you will need to use the Bluetooth manager and connect to the FieldHawk radio.
