    Im not sure if this is app related or V1 radar related it self, but this has happened before..

    my V1 bluetooth doesn't connect, after a while it would connect, but sometimes it wont connect for a long period of time. Im not sure if heat has to do with it, or its my phone or the bluetooth dongle it self.

    I've always been running latest iOS software....

    I've made sure the bluetooth dongle has no shortages etc... Blue light shows that its on, but my phone is not seeing it. Phone has been restarted as well, V1 Driver bluetooth settings has been deleted too, still no bluetooth connectivity...

    Does your LE Dongle have the latest firmware?

    One symptom of the older firmware is that it would connect erratically.

    You can turn on the logging and take note of the time that it has an issue and I can look at that time in the log to see if I see anything.

    You can check firmware versions on everything using Valentine V1-Connect App, I think it’s under “About” menu.

    V1Driver will pop up a warning if your firmware is old.

    If you bought the Dongle in the last year or so it should be up to date. You have to send it in for updates.

    That doesn’t make sense. You sure V1Connection wasn’t connected?
