Since I'm new thought I would relate this little story: Won a free Steak Dinner, Panogear Bluetooth Kit doesn't work To make this a short story, a friend suggested I buy the Panogear Bluetooth Transmitter Kit for my Skywatcher Merlin Non-Goto, so like a fool I spent the $150.00 and just for grins and giggles I made a side bet stating the blue box wouldn't work and I was right, I now have a $150 Blue Box Dust Collector, no loss don't plan on taking my Gold with me win I go anyway. Just the Facts: Win 8 - 64 bit system, 8MG RAM / Papywizard ver 2.1.21 Device Manager - Microsoft Blue Tooth Enumerator - Currently Working Papywizard Drivers - Bluetooth Chooser - 00:12:6F:27:05:2E--PapyMerlin When you Click on connect you get the following; You can find the passcode on your PapyMerlin or in the information that came with it. No Password came with kit, just does not exists, but is required. So after several restarts and reinstalls, the friend yelled I can't beleive this costing me a Steak Dinner. So unlees you have $150.00 in Gold you wish to donate to Kolar or just looking for a free steak dinner, I suggest you save your GOLD... FYI: No i did not make any attempt at contacting Kolar, becuase we all know what waste of good time that is, and at my age time is precious, besides i'm smart enough to know thats the last thing they want to dork with................ Steak Tasted Great... Not a Good Buy For Any Reason.
To gkaefer: Thanks for the info, the Pass Code 1234 worked, had to goto Plugins rechoose the bluetooth option under devices, select browse and do the bt search and exit out of papywizard, then reopen papywizard, got the tap screen to add device, got the pass code screen You can find the passcode on your PapyMerlin or in the information that came with it. entered the code 1234, bt was added as a true device, reopened papywizard and was connected immediately running win 8 pro on a hp pavillion laptop. The only issue now is this is going to cost me a steak dinner and a meal of crow. FYI: If by chance you get chance to come to Pacific Northwest, I suggest you might want to take a look at my website and download for free the maps that are there and watch the movies on hikes i've made.
