How do I pair my Mobile Device with the UltraGauge Blue Adapter?

Solution

Step by step instructions and video Here, and also summarized below.

  1. Go to the Mobile Devices Settings screen and select Bluetooth
  2. Disable Bluetooth on the Mobile device (Step 2 & 5 are not usually needed)
  3. With the Blue Adapter installed in the vehicle, and the ignition in the run position (or with the engine running), hold down the Blue Adapter button for 10 seconds to put the Adapter into Bluetooth Pairing mode (until the Attention icon flashes).  The Blue Adapter will remain in pairing mode for 5 minutes, until the Adapter Pairs, or until the Adapter Button is pressed again.
    NOTE: After 5 seconds of pressing the button, the Vehicle icon will begin to flash, continue holding the button until the Attention icon flashes
  4. Back on the Mobile Device, Enable Bluetooth
  5. Apple:

Select “Scan”.  At this point, your mobile device will begin scanning Bluetooth:

    • Choose the “UltraGauge Blue” Adapter from the list of scanned devices (accept the passkey if prompted)
    •  “UltraGauge Blue” should appear as “Connected” in the list of Paired devices.  In addition, the Bluetooth LED should be lit on the Blue Adapter.

Android:

 At this point, your mobile device will begin scanning Bluetooth:

    • Choose the “UltraGauge Blue” Adapter (accept the passkey if prompted)
    • “UltraGauge Blue” should appear in the list of Paired Modules.

Note:If the Blue Adapter's Attention icon is still blinking AFTER completing the steps above, please follow the steps below (This is a RARE situation which may occur indicating the Pairing process did not complete cleanly):

  1. Go to your Mobile Devices Settings->Bluetooth screen and select the info icon next to the UltraGauge Blue Adapter and tell the Mobile Device to "Forget this device" (this will un-pair the Blue Adapter).
  2. Unplug the Adapter from your vehicle
  3. While holding in the button on the Blue Adapter, plug the Adapter back into your vehicle.  You should see the Battery and Attention icons on solid.  This will force the Adapter into Pairing mode (Note: the Adapter is also in "Update Mode" at this point, but we will get it back to "Normal Mode" in steps 5 & 6 below)
  4. Go to your Mobile Devices Settings->Bluetooth screen.  Click on UltraGauge Blue on this screen and wait for it to pair/connect.
  5. Remove the Adapter from your vehicle
  6. Re-install the Blue Adapter into your vehicle (make sure you are NOT pressing the button on the Adapter while installing).

At this point, the Adapter should be running in Normal Mode.  If you start the UltraGauge App on your Mobile Device, it should automatically connect within 30 seconds.
