    3.1 Automatic Power-Off Function
    • When the Adapt AD-850 is turned on and there is no Bluetooth connection
    established (static blue LED), the AD850 will turn off the Bluetooth part
    automatically after 10 minutes to save power consumption. However, the
    GPS data logger (Green LED) will stay on to record your position data.
    • When the Adapt AD-850 is linked with a Bluetooth device (flashing blue
    LED) but the battery is low (flashing Red LED), the AD850 will automatically turn off after 30 minutes to conserve power.
    • When the Adapt AD-850 is powered with a low battery the AD850 will
    show a flashing Red LED and will be unable to connect to any Bluetooth
    devices. The AD850 will turn off after 5 minutes.

    4. Getting Started
    4.1. Fully charge the battery
    Insert the battery. Charge the battery for at least eight hours before first use.
    4.2. Turn on Receiver
    Switch ON the Power Button (fig 1.0), GPS LED indicates green light, and the
    Bluetooth LED indicates blue flashing light.
    4.3. Connect to Bluetooth-Enabled Device
    From your Bluetooth-Enabled device open the Bluetooth application software
    to search for the AD850 and then connect it to your device. If connection is
    successful, the Bluetooth LED will blink twice every 3 seconds. (Pin code may
    be required during configuration. Code=0000)
    4.4. Connect to your Navigation Software
    Start the application. Make sure the application is set for the COM port that
    your Bluetooth-Enable device will use for serial communication. Now you
    should be ready to use your Navigation software. Refer to user documents
    that came with software. More configurations may be necessary.

    5. PDA Configuration
    5.1 Activate
    Bluetooth function
    of your PDA
    Prior to activating the
    Bluetooth function of
    your PDA, make sure
    the device is equipped
    with Bluetooth function, and the driver
    software has been

  • Page 7

    5.2. Activate Bluetooth Manager & Establish New Connections.
    (illustrations using HP iPAQ 4150 PDA)
    First you must open the “Bluetooth Manager “on your pocket pc.
    (See figure 1.2)

    Fig 1.3
    At this point, the
    Bluetooth GPS connection has been
    successfully activated
    when the Bluetooth
    LED flashes twice
    every 3 seconds on
    the AD850, indicating
    that Bluetooth GPS
    and the PDA connection are in progress.

    6. Bluetooth configuration setup with
    PC connection
    Here is a sample to show you how to connect the AD-850 with your PC, also
    for software installation and a basic function test.
    1) You must make sure that your PC has a Bluetooth interface in order to
    pair with the AD-850. If not you can purchase a Bluetooth adapter for
    your PC, please seek advice from your PC manufacturer for compatible
    Bluetooth adapters.
    2) Check your Bluetooth manager to see if a Bluetooth Serial Port Profile like
    this exists:

    page 8

  • Page 9

    Fig 1.6
    Note: this sample is for your reference only. The screen may vary between
    different models of Bluetooth manager software.
    3) If not found, please create a Bluetooth serial port.
    To configure a Bluetooth serial port do the following:

    Fig 1.7
    page 9

  • Page 10

    4) If one already exists, then please check the content. Some Bluetooth
    devices will enable the secure connection. Make sure you uncheck the
    ‘secure connection’ box (see figure 1.7).
    5) Power on your AD-850. If the battery is fully charged, you should see two
    LED lights: the static Blue LED means Bluetooth is activated and waiting
    for connection. Another static Green LED shows that GPS receiver has
    started and is acquiring positioning information.
    6) Open ‘My Bluetooth
    Places’, there will be no
    devices shown at first.

    Fig 1.8
    7) Click the [View devices in range] and you
    should find the
    AD-850 [Bluetooth GPS]
    as shown in Figure 1.9:

    You should find the
    service SPP slave, right
    click and select ‘Connect to Bluetooth Serial
    Port’ (see figure 2.1):

    Fig 2.1
    10) Then, the following
    message will be shown:

    11) And the successful connection message will be

    12) Back to the Bluetooth
    service view, you
    should see the icon
    changed to [Connected]
    (see figure 2.2)

    Fig 2.2
    13) You can create a shortcut to allow for easy
    connection next time
    you pair the device with
    your Pc (see figure 2.3
    and figure 2.4)

    Fig 2.3

    PC connection
    Here is a sample to show you how to read the data logger recorder from the
    Note: Please make sure you are using the correct Bluetooth driver which is
    provided from your Bluetooth manufacturer. Some unpredicted problems
    could occur if you use the wrong driver for your Bluetooth dongle.
    Put your AD850 next to the Bluetooth dongle/Pc within 30 cm range to
    prevent any interference from other Bluetooth device. If you have a special
    requirement for longer distance, please contact Adapt technical support for
    more help. www.adapt-mobile.com
    1) First, connect the AD850 to your PC with a Bluetooth interface. Please refer to Item 6 for more details. Copy all data logger program files from the
    CD to your PC into a directory. You will see this window in you PC (figure

    page 13

  • Page 14

    Fig 2.6
    2) Double click the “Log”

    Fig 2.7
    3) Select the correct port (which is provided by Bluetooth SPP link) and
    57600 baud rate. Then click “Connect” (see figure 2.7)
    4) You will see the NMEA
    data. This means log
    program is linked

    (see figure 3.0)
    7) Min time: set the minimum time to make a recording. Zero means record
    every second. (see figure 3.0)
    8) Min distance: record time period. Zero means record for each movement
    (see figure 3.0)
    9) Min speed: will not record if speed less than this setting . Zero means
    record for speed bigger than zero. (see figure 3.0)
    10) Data Log: Enable/Disable, Enable or disable data log function,
    (see figure 3.0).
    Note: you may want to do this to conserve the battery power. However, the
    data log function is very energy efficient and should not effect the battery
    period dramatically.

    Inside buildings, GPS signal is blocked.

    Beside some buildings, GPS signal is disturbed.

    In the forests, or too much overhead foliage can disturb
    the signal.

    If you use the AD850 Bluetooth GPS Receiver inside the car, some anti-sunlight windscreen film will make the GPS signal decrease or can even cause a
    loss of signal.
    GPS satellites are owned by the American military; sometimes they will tunedown the accuracy for some reason. In such cases, the GPS position may not
    fix exactly.
