Bluetooth LE (BLE) bit troubles


Got my new Gizmos & Gadgets Kit 2nd Edition and the much anticipated BLE bits. Jumped right in, updated the app in my Samsung Galaxy A5 6 phone and started tinkering.

I can get all functions to work properly, like Slider, Button, Readout, CountUp etc. but Drive Mode just won’t work. I can connect to the Bluetooth bits, sometimes quickly but other times not, and then nothing happens. The BLE bits won’t respond at all, the purple dot sits in the center of the screen and won’t budge, no matter what I do.

Any tips or pointers?

Hi @Knax !

I’ll be troubleshooting this with you over email if you don’t mind. I’ll send a message shortly.
