FMB962 Bluetooth settings

General functionality[edit source]

Fmb120 bt general.png

General functionality configures Blue-tooth to work in slave mode. This mode allows any external device to connect to FMB962.
Parameter BT Radio allows enabling or disabling Blue-tooth. There are three different settings:

  1. Disabled – Blue-tooth functionality will be disabled.
  2. Enable (hidden) – Blue-tooth functionality will be enabled, external devices will be able to connect to FMB962, but no devices will be able to detect it.
  3. Enable (visible) – Blue-tooth functionality will be enabled and any external device will be able to detect and connect to FMB962.
    Local Name parameter lets user declare a visible name of FMB962 to external devices.
    Local PIN parameter lets user configure Blue-tooth PIN of FMB962 device.

FMB962 Blue-tooth has several different Security Modes:

  • PIN only – only Local PIN will be reacquired to complete connection to FMB962.
  • PIN + MAC list – PIN and Authorized Devices MAC List will be checked against to allow connection to FMB962. If the external device MAC ID is in the list and correct Local PIN is entered then connection will be established, otherwise FMB962 will reject connection.
  • MAC list only – only Authorized Devices MAC List will be checked when trying to connect to FMB962. If external device MAC ID is in the list then connection will be established, otherwise FMB962 will reject connection.
  • None – neither Local PIN nor Authorized Device MAC List will be checked.

Auto connection functionality configures FMB962 as master device, which allows connecting FMB962 to an external device. FMB962 currently supports these modes:

  • None – disables auto connection functionality.
  • Hands Free or OBDII – FMB962 starts searching for an external hands free headset. If FMB962 finds a device which matches user defined External MAC or External Name then FMB962 will try to pair with that external device. If the external device asks for PIN then FMB962 will send user defined External PIN. After successfully pairing FMB962 will connect to paired device.
  • Data Link – BT Data link mode is enabled by Configurator Data Link parameter: when Data Link is configured and FMB has a link with the server, paired device can send messages via Blue-tooth SPP profile directly to the server. Messages will be encoded by codec12.

FMB962 can see up to 10 available devices. If there are more than 10 devices, the list may change with each new scan.

External Name parameter works as a substring, which allows user to enter a part of the full external device name. For example, if external device name is "HandsFreeHeadset" and user enters "HandsFree" in External Name parameter window, then FMB962 will be allowed to connect to an external device named "HandsFreeHeadset".

Blue-tooth settings configuration[edit source]

These are instructions on how to easily create a connection between a Blue-tooth Hands Free device and an FMB device. First the FMB device Blue-tooth settings need to be configured. These are the required steps:

  • Press Bluetooth settings (position 1).
  • Turn on BT Radio by pressing Enable (visible) (position 2). Local name (position 3) will be "FMB962_last 7 imei digits" by default, which can be changed.
  • Set Security Mode (position 4) to PIN only or None. PIN + MAC list or MAC list only security modes could also be selected, but in that case external device MAC address is required to be entered to Authorized Devices MAC List (position 7).
  • Set connection mode to Hands Free (position 5).
  • Set External Name (position 6) as your hands-free device name for proper identification. In the given example hands-free headset name is "DMH10" but at least 2 characters are required to recognize it and connect to it. For better and quicker adapter identification on the network you could enter a full device name. You could check your hands-free adapter Blue-tooth name by scanning nearby Blue-tooth devices using a mobile phone or a computer with Blue-tooth adapter.
  • Go to SMS/Call Settings in main menu and set Incoming Call Action to Do Nothing as shown on next figure.
  • After all these steps press Save to device to save configuration.
  • Now FMB device can be disconnected from the configurator.













Connecting Blue-tooth Hands Free adapter[edit source]


Turn on hands-free device and then turn on its Blue-tooth connection for pairing following your model instructions. Hands-free adapter should make a specific sound in the speakers or its LED identification should inform about a successful connection. To check if the adapter is successfully connected, dial the FMB device phone number and the hands-free device should start ringing. If you later restart FMB device it will automatically reconnect to this adapter.

Logging the FMB962 device using your mobile phone[edit source]

Blue-tooth starts automatically when FMB device is on. Take your mobile phone, go to Settings->Blue-tooth and turn it on. Scan for nearby devices, find the device in the list, distinguish the device by last IMEI digits on device module. Press pair, wait until device asks to enter pairing password, type: "5555" (as in the example on the figure). Paired device will show up in the paired device list. Download a terminal for Blue-tooth e.g. BlueTerm from Play Store/App store. Run app, click Find->Connect to your paired device. Now we need to send a command to FMB962 from Blue-tooth terminal, type: ".log:1"
Device will respond with "Debug enabled" and FMB962 log will show up. Do not forget to save the log file to mobile phone.

Device debug over Android smartphone[edit source]

Fmb120 bt general vis.png

In order to pair FMB device with Android smartphone, make sure that BT radio is enabled (visible) in device configuration. It can be checked via SMS command too:
"getparam 800"
The answer has to be "2", which means "Enabled and visible".








Android bt.png
  • Scan for visible BT devices using your Android smartphone and connect to your FMB device.
    Default FMB BT name is: "FMB962_last_7_imei_digits".
    Default PIN code is: "5555".

  • Run "Blue-tooth Terminal", in menu press "Connect" and select paired FMB device. To start log check "CR" and enter the command into terminal: ".log:1".
  • Wait ~10 minutes and press "Save" button in menu. You will find the saved log file in device folder "My Files/Bluetooth Terminal", select log files and press "Share via Email" and send them to Teltonika support.








Bw nb.png Unfortunately it is not possible to perform debug the same way on iPhone, because there is no native SPP Blue-tooth profile support on iPhone.


Blue-tooth settings configuration[edit source]

Following are the instructions on how to easily prepare Blue-tooth Dongle connection to the FMB device. First we need to configure FMB device Blue-tooth settings. These are the required steps:

  • Go to Blue-tooth section similarly to as shown in the figure to the right (position 1).
  • Turn on BT Radio by pressing Enable (visible) (position 2). "Local name" (position 3) will automatically be "FMB962_last 7 imei digits", you can leave it or type your own name.
  • Set Security Mode (position 4) to PIN only or None (you could select PIN + MAC list or MAC list only security mode but in this case you need to type external device MAC address in Authorized Devices MAC List (position 7).
  • Set connection mode to OBDII (position 5).
  • Set External Name as your Blue-tooth OBD II device name for proper device identification and connection to it. In this example OBDII device name is "DONGLE", at least 2 characters are needed to recognize it and connect to it. For better and faster adapter identification in network you could enter a full device name. You could check your OBDII adapter Blue-tooth name by scanning nearby Blue-tooth devices using a mobile phone or a computer with Blue-tooth adapter.
  • Go to OBD II in main menu and select priority and others parameters visible in the following figure.

  • After all these steps press Save to device to save configuration (position 8 in the top right hand figure).
  • Now you can disconnect FMB device from the configurator.

Connecting to Blue-tooth OBD II dongle[edit source]


After this configuration OBDII dongle can be connected to FMB device. Turn on ignition, then turn on its Blue-tooth connection. For pairing follow dongle instructions. OBDII device notification about paired Blue-tooth connection depends on the specific model. If you later restart FMB device it will automatically reconnect to this dongle.

Supported Blue-tooth OBD II dongles[edit source]


FMB module works with Blue-tooth OBD II dongles which are based on ELM327 or STN1110 chips.
Comparison of these chips is presented in the image below:
