    Crossfire Bluetooth problem - requesting Perna's Assistance

    I turn Bluetooth on, on my crossfire and set it to mavlink and it doesn't show up on my android tablet Bluetooth list, my phones, nor my computer... Am I missing something? I borrow my friends transmitter and set it the same way and my laptop connects to it but mission planner won't connect to pixhawk thru the crossfire system, but a few months ago it did kind of work with mission planner, I could get a random connection but nothing useful but now I can't even get that but droid planner on my android tablet and phone works great.. Please help guys, any thoughts Perna?

    I'm having the same problem. Very rarely does Crossfire make itself visible to bluetooth. If I catch it visible, I can pair my laptop and use Mission Planner for a few minutes. I then hear telemetry lost, but all the electronics are sitting on the desk in front of me. After telemetry lost, I immediately regain telemetry but the bluetooth is gone. It's not visible or paired, just completely offline. I've had three such sessions. Grasping at straws, I upgrade to beta firmware 2.25. Boom, bluetooth is visible again...for a few minutes. In other words, no change. Any help out there?

    Bluetooth is also really unstable and super slow for me!

    I send my unit into TBS, at my expense, and they opened up two trouble tickets. It's somewhat related to overheating, but I don't think either of the fixes involved heat. I haven't tested the patches because I ran out of time and, frankly, got tired of being a test engineer for TBS for free.

    There were a couple of Bluetooth bugs. TBS sent me a patch and, after a factory reset, patch application, and firmware downgrade to 2.33 I now have a working Bluetooth Mavlink connection. Yay!

    Thanks for feedback! In that case I'm looking forward to the next update!
