Bluetooth Dongle for Flarm

Compatibility

This product is compatible with all Flarm and Power Flarm devices with a free RJ45 port with standard IGC-pinout in the back

If no free RJ45 port is available on your device, you will need a separate Flarm Splitter to connect Naviter Bluetooth Dongle to your Flarm.

Configuration

No configuration is required. Simply plug it into the Flarm RJ45 port, start the Flarm and Naviter Bluetooth Dongle will become visible after about 20 seconds. The moment it becomes visible as a Bluetooth device, it is ready to transmit data to SeeYou Navigator or Oudie N.

Installation

  1. Plug it into your Flarm or compatible device
  2. Turn the device on and wait for 20 seconds
  3. Run SeeYou Navigator
  4. Go to Menu > Devices
  5. Pair the “Naviter BLE” dongle

Make absolutely sure that you are connecting the right version of the Naviter Bluetooth Dongle for your flight computer. Failing to do so will result in damage to the Dongle, the flight computer, or both.

Renaming the Dongle

In an environment where several dongles are visible to SeeYou Navigator, such as in the club and at a competition, giving your Dongle a unique name is a good idea. Renaming the Naviter Bluetooth Dongle is easy with SeeYou Navigator.

This procedure assumes you have already paired the Naviter Bluetooth Dongle with SeeYou Navigator. If you did not, read above for instructions.

  1. Run SeeYou Navigator.
  2. Go to Menu > Devices.
  3. Make sure “Naviter BLE” is paired and connected.
  4. Tap on “Naviter BLE” device to open the menu.
  5. Choose “Rename dongle”
  6. Enter any name that will uniquely identify the dongle, then click Save.

Choose a short and easy name to recognize for the Naviter Bluetooth Dongle. Competition sign, glider registration or device type is a good choice in most cases.

If you choose “D-7111” as the new name of your Dongle, it will broadcast its name as

  • Naviter D-7111 BLE” in SeeYou Navigator
  • Naviter D-7111 BT20” on Oudie

You will enjoy flying with the Naviter Bluetooth Dongle.

Pinout

Standard IGC pinout is used for this Bluetooth Dongle.

1: VCC (12V)
2: VCC (12V)
3: NC
4: NC
5: RX, Receive to Dongle
6: TX, Transmit from Dongle
7: GND
8: GND

Note that the outer-most pins (1,2 and 7,8) for power supply are repeated. For this reason it is possible to use an RJ female-to-female converter to connect this dongle to an RJ-11 port as well.
