Problem pairing Buggy to PC

Postby SNHS » Tue Jul 12, 2016 10:54 pm

Hi,

I have recently bought Formula AllCode buggy, however it does not appear on my PC, therefore I cannot pair the two together. Also, I am hoping to use the Buggy with Scratch.

Thanks

Shamim

Hi Shamim,

Could you please provide more details about your PC, especially the Bluetooth capability. For example, are you using a Bluetooth dongle or does it have internal Bluetooth? And what version of Bluetooth is supported - the Formula AllCode robot requires Bluetooth v2.

Regards,
Steve,

Hi Steve,

I have managed to pair the Buggies to my laptop, and they are showing on the COM Port with the Buggies code. The other issue is, I have charged all the buggies as advised by Liam, however when they are taken off the cables the buggies do not turn on. The percentage of charge shows 80% to 90% charge on all the buggies.

Thanks

Sham
