    My problem is that I can't open the mimic chart with the Bleutooth from my mac. When I connect the mimic from the Mac, the only thing that I can see is the battery and the sat, and I'can't access to the others settings.
    The firmware of the Mac is App Version: 1.630 Firmware: 4.02.
    About the mimic I don't know, because I can't see the information.

    About the light from the mimic, when I put the power-on the green light start blinking 4 seconds et solit almost 2seconds all the time. After did a correct bind with the movi, the light situation became the same as I wrote before.

    You need to know that my collegue did an update and he put in the mimic the Movi Controler Firmware v2.0.5-Mac OS X.

    I don't know if we can't reset all the mimic and re-start from the beginning to have the possibily to read the settings.
    Thank you
    Best regards

    Just had same problem this is how I fixed:

    Download MIMIC 1.4 Firmware here: http://freeflysystems.com/software-manuals/beta/software-by-product
    Connect Unplug the 5 pin from the Mimic Transmitter leave plugged into the bigger GPS AND ANTENNA BOX
    Short pins 1 & 5 with some kind of thin wire. This will cause reset firmware mode to enable
    Leave the shorted wire in for the rest of the update
    Plug in the USB cable to power source
    From computer open the Movi App and connect via bluetooth
    It will ask if you are sure you want to continue? say yes
    upload the MIMIC 1.4 Firmware to the mimic.
    unplug mimic from power source
    remote the 5 pin cable short
    plug 5 pin back into smaller MIMIC transmitter box
    plug mimic back into battery to turn on
    problem solved.

    hope this helps.

    Best,
    John
