To pair the GPS Pro/Pro+/GNSS Surveyor with your Windows 10 computer please follow the instructions below. This process will only have to be done once and does not need to be repeated in the future.
If your Bad Elf accessory is turned on, you should see something like Bad Elf GPS #12345 (with your unit's serial number) in the list.
Within 5-10 seconds, you should see a prompt on both the Windows computer. The Bad Elf receiver LCD screen displays a message asking you to confirm a pairing PIN, which should match.
Once this action is completed, the message “Ready to pair” will change to “Paired” as shown below.
At this point you have successfully paired your Bad Elf receiver with your Windows computer. Next, you will need to determine the COM port assigned by the operating system. To accomplish this:
The COM port assigned by the Windows operating system for this Bad Elf receiver is COM8. You will use this COM port when attaching third party software to the Bad Elf accessory.
