I am having trouble connecting to Android over Bluetooth.

This article applies to the BlueFlyVario_Bluetooth_v11 and BlueFlyVario_Bluetooth_USB_v12, although the instructions are also suitable for earlier versions. We will attempt to establish a working connection between your BlueFly and the BlueFlyVario android app on an Android device. If you BlueFly blue light is flashing, and the BlueFly audio is otherwise working normally, please try the following:

  1. Shutdown the BlueFly.
  2. In your Android settings menu make sure that the BlueFly is not paired with your Android device (unpair it – you may need to tap ‘Forget’).
  3. Restart your Android device by shutting it down and restarting it.
  4. Start up your BlueFly then pair it to your Android device from the settings menu. Your BlueFly should be named BlueFly_XXXX when you search or refresh from your Android device. You might need to enter pin code ‘1234’ on older devices.
  5. With the BlueFlyVario app open press the menu button on your Android device. Some newer Android devices do not have a menu button. You might need to long press on the home or app button. Google your phone model and ‘menu button’ to work it out.
  6. Tap ‘Connect a device’ from the menu. This needs to be done within 180 seconds of the BlueFly being started. If you are not quick enough restart the BlueFly then try again.
  7. If that does not work, then go to Menu|Bluetooth|’Bluetooth connect method’ then select ‘Reflection’. Try again.
  8. If that still does not work please try on another Android device.
  9. Contact me for further troubleshooting. Please make sure to include details of any error messages.
