Ratio ix3m GPS edition - Bluetooth support

Post by netdata » Tue Jan 28, 2020 9:31 pm

Hi there,

I see that the Ratio is supported on mac-dive on MacOS.
What would you need to also support the Bluetooth mode for this computer?

If you want we can test / work together?

Try pairing it with macOS and then choosing the paired serial port from Preferences > Advanced. It should hopefully just work.

No, sorry. As far as I understand they do not have BLE, only classic Bluetooth, so can't interface with iOS.

Guess the problem is that is it is bluetooth V3 ?

Not sure, but I think you are able to talk to v3 devices in ios?

No, iOS requires Bluetooth 4 (BLE) as I mentioned.
