[Moved to Accessories/GPS]

Where do you get this message when doing what?
Please post your system configuration in addition.

I receive this msg after I press connect on the bluetooth app. Downloaded bluetooth app as suggested. Went through instructions to make sure it was set up. Then when it comes to connecting to gps to my phone after about 10 seconds that error msg comes up.

Not sure what is meant system configuration. I have a galaxy s5, if that is the question.

Thanks
Allan

Downloaded gps app from playstore as directed. Ensure all functions were checked as stated in harrys lap timer as well as dual xgps 160. When I try to connect from the downloaded gps app I get the above msg. On the main gps the blue light blinks every second indicating it is not linked. Phone says it is paired, but again when I press connect on gps app after about 10 seconds I get the above message.

There is no Bluetooth app needed. Or the other way around: get rid of anything accessing your XGPS except LapTimer. Instructions how to connect your XGPS are available here: viewtopic.php?f=39&t=2463
