Bluetooth settings configuration

These are instructions on how to easily create a connection between a Bluetooth Hands Free device and Teltonika device. First the device Bluetooth 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 "DeviceName%imeiX" 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 "DM" because 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 Bluetooth name by scanning nearby Bluetooth devices using a mobile phone or a computer with Bluetooth 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 the device can be disconnected from the configurator.

Connecting Bluetooth Hands Free adapter

Turn on hands-free device and then turn on its Bluetooth 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 device phone number and the hands-free device should start ringing. If you later restart the device it will automatically reconnect to this adapter.
