Bluetooth+ help please

PostThu Apr 08, 2021 10:27 pm

So every time i connect my P6k Pro to the Bluetooth+ app on my iphone it connects and allow me control my camera, but after a while it disconnects and can't find the camera. I also had this same issue with my previous og p6k.
Anyone had this same issue, and how did you sort it out?

at the beginning there are often some connection problems, but after a couple of minutes it becomes stable. I see that in the app you mention and in other Bluetooth control apps for other devices.

Recently I've been working with the Bluetooth+ app on an iPhone and a pocket 4k, together with the Moza Master app on a Samsung phone and a Slypod. Both apps tend to disconnect once, twice, or more. Then after a while both apps remain connected and provide reliable control. Similar observation with the Aputure Sidus Link app. I have to reconnect once or twice to the fixtures, then it becomes reliable.

I mainly use the Bluetooth+ app on an iPhone when am doing car shots (with CineEye transmitting to ipad). Bluetooth+ app works for a while and then disconnects and NEVER reconnects.

Am i suppose to turn off any settings on the phone?

Akpe, maybe that tip I gave in this thread might help:

At least it's worth a try.
Saying "Thx for help!" is not a crime.

before resetting Bluetooth I would try closing the app completely, then restarting the app.
