ConnectR available for Android

Postby tempo10 » Thu Nov 07, 2013 5:02 pm

As the title says, the ConnectR app has popped up on Google Play store

I can't describe how happy I am that I can now remote control my 83i without having to own an Apple product.

Strangely though, while it searches for available radios it complains quite a lot that my bluetooth isn't turned on, despite everything being WiFi. Once I'm controlling a radio I can turn bluetooth back off again without the app grumpling...

I've just downloaded it. Not got it working yet though.

It is just a slighty poor UI layout. The bit saying "Warning: Bluetooth not enabled" is part of a separate section headed "Bluetooth Radios". Clearly the 83i is not a bluetooth radio, but the App accommodates other radios as well, and is simply warning you that without bluetooth enabled on your Android it will not be able to discover those radios - it does not presume to know that you haven't got any other radios...

Short version, ignore it. You do not need to enable bluetooth to connect with your 83i over wifi.
