This method of connecting a GR-i3 via Bluetooth to a Windows 7 PC is used with the TRU program to look at firmware versions and option authorization files. This quick guide is to assist you in pairing your computer to a GR-i3.
Note: You cannot load firmware over Bluetooth. This is only to view options and check firmware versions.
Ensure the GR-i3 is powered on.
Ensure your PC's Bluetooth is turned on.
Select the Start button, and go to Devices and Printers. Click Add a device.
Add the device that you wish to pair to your PC via Bluetooth pairing, and click Next.
Enter a pairing code. Note: For this demonstration, 1111 was used.
Navigate to Devices and Printers, and select the device being paired.

Select your device, and click Connect.
When connecting, select Serial Port in the Connect Using drop-down menu.
