    Hi Guys,

    I've had a brand new Movi M15 as a spare for a while but never fired it up and the Bluetooth is not working? Any ideas?

    I've tried discovery even on my iPhone but nothing am I missing something?

    Using Nexus 7 for connecting works with my other M15 and M5.

    Cheers,

    Hi Peter. Just to clarify, it doesn't show up under Settings --> Bluetooth of your Nexus?

    Hi Jose,

    I fixed it by using my Mac laptop updating software and turning off all other Bluetooth. Once it connected to Mac laptop it then also connected to Nexus.

    All the best
    Pete

    That's very similar to the technique I described on the other thread relating to your issue, Jose. It's weird that you have to do this, but it seems as though the Bluetooth software is a bit "fragile." :(

    Hi Jose, what software version are you running on your laptop? Is it current?

    Maybe you can move your Movi to a different location and try? Wireless interference is very common, and maybe it's some interference you can't control?
