    Does it not show up in the Bluetooth options anymore when you turn it on?

    If not, you can use the little jumper cable to factory reset the Movi, then reload current firmware.

    My M15 came with it. The Knowledge base seems to say that it comes with the Movi, but maybe they stopped sending them? It's really small, so easy to miss. Just one connector with a rainbow of cables connected to itself.

    You might try contacting your dealer to see if they have a jumper cable. The most recent MoVI's do come with the jumper cable so, depending upon when you got yours you might have got one -- but as Graham says, is only about 3 cm by 1 cm so it's easy to miss (or misplace!).

  8. The MoVI Jumper cable does not "Factory Reset" the MoVI. The jumper cable simply allows you to bypass the normal way of accessing the unit via Bluetooth, in order to install or update firmware if the unit becomes 'Bricked'.
    The reason we have many people 'Bricking' their MoVI's, is because there is an 'Urban Myth' that installing firmware should be used as a troubleshooting step, or how doing so somehow resets everything on the MoVI, and therefore "fixing" it. This is not true. Installing firmware SHOULD NOT be used as part of MoVI troubleshooting.
    In Kjetil's case, the wrong firmware was installed on the MoVI, which of course warrants the use of the 'Jumper' cable.

    Good points (as always) Chris.

    The MoVI jumper, in geek terms, forces the MoVI controller into "bootloader mode" -- so the only thing the controller will do when you power it up with the jumper installed is expect a version of the firmware to be sent to it.
