Reasons for not being able to use navigation: 

① For very few Android phones, due to the quality of the phone, the operating system which has been tampered with, the location or battery power consumption and other permission reasons, it may not be connected or frequently interrupted; we recommend using genuine Android system brand mobile phone and open the restrictions on KOMOOT as much as possible,you also can consult us for detailed guidance and help. 

② When the GPS of the mobile phone fails to locate indoors or if navigation planning is not made for a long time, KOMOOT will automatically disconnect with the device. When the conditions are met, they will automatically connect again. 

③ Navigation is only an auxiliary reference. The data may have uncertain inaccuracies and even some hidden trouble due to road changes. Therefore, please mind your riding situation. 


8.Why can’t my Finder connect with the APP normally?


①Due to the different working modes between KOMOOT and MEILAN, we can only choose to use one APP at a time. To make sure that Finder can connect and work successful with the APP(KOMOOT or MEILAN).

We need to completely close the other APP.

 

As the IOS or ANDROID operating system is constantly updated and upgraded, and the rules of the wireless communication protocol are constantly changed sometimes, which causes the devices that have been connected and saved are in the process of being continuously disconnected or cannot be successfully connected. It will make the users unable to use them normally. We could delete the device in the APP, and completely delete the memory of the device in the Bluetooth settings of the phone menu.  Then we pair it again. It will solve this problem.

3. why do the GPS computers consume power so fast? 

 Due to the different working principles, the power consumption of the GPS computers will be much faster than the traditional wire computers,which is normal. 


4. GPS positioning time and data accuracy issues

When you use it for the first time, it will take a long time to finish the positioning, which is normal. If you are in a densely covered building, a thunderstorm or rainy day, or a place with a lot of electromagnetic interference around it, the tunnel/indoor may take a long time to locate. You need to quickly locate in an open environment. therefore,Compared with the BLADE computer(using a speed sensor),generally, the data generated by purely GPS is lower than that generated by the sensors.due to the aforementioned reasons. This is normal in the industry. 

 

5. Bluetooth connection interrupted or unable to pair with the sensor 

Please check: 

 A. Check if the sensor battery is sufficient 

 B. Check if the installation location meets the requirements  

C. Check if there is a lot of 2.4G co-channel interference around, most of the cases is due to the traffic monitors on the road or wireless video of some buildings. .  

D. please step on the bicycle for 2-3 laps and wear the heart rate monitor to activate these dormant sensors. 

We strongly recommend the use of MEILAN sensors with Meilan computers. We cannot provide technical services for problems that arised when non-brand sensors are used with MEILAN computers. Our computer does not support heart rate monitors that work with the 5.3KHZ transmission protocol. 


6. How can i know if the batteries of C1, C3 and C5 are working normally?

All Meilan sensors have a battery insulating film in the battery box. You need to use a coin to unscrew the battery box and the device can not power on unlesss you remove the blue insulating film. When C1 switches the working mode or when C5 is just worn on the body, the LED will start to flash. If the LED no longer flashes, you need to replace a new battery. Please purchase a regular brand battery. When the displayed data is intermittent, or your mobile phone/computer cannot detect the presence of the sensors (you can check if the following sensors can be searched in the MEILAN APP), you may need to consider replacing with a new battery.

Bluetooth name:

 C1 speed function: MEILAN-SPD

       Cadence function: MEILAN-CAD

C3 MEILAN-SC 

C5 MEILAN-HRM  

 

7. How to distinguish between Bluetooth BLE4.0 and ANT+ two wireless connection methods?  

C1, C5 support Bluetooth BLE4.0 and ANT+ two wireless connection methods, C3 only supports Bluetooth BLE4.0 wireless connection method.

 ANT + connection mode: display the icon + digital number (the corresponding digital number is attached to the back of the product); Bluetooth connection mode: 

 display the icon + device name (Meilan-CAD). When your computer only supports one connection mode, please select the connection mode correctly. Garmin, Bryton, Polar and Wahoo such brand devices only support ANT+ mode when they connect to sensors.
