Q: How do I wake BB-9E?
A: To wake BB-9E from sleep, simply launch the app next to your Droid to wake him. If BB-9E is not waking up, don’t freak out! Just place your droid in the charging cradle and allow it to charge for a few minutes before launching the application.
Q: How do I charge BB-9E?
A: When you place your BB-9E Droid on its charging base with the heavy side down, if a charging connection is made, you will see the red light on the charger blink. It will continue blinking until BB-9E is fully charged, at which time the light on the charger will turn solid red. BB-9E is now fully charged and ready for action!
Q: How does BB-9E connect?
A: BB-9E connects to your device via Bluetooth Smart BLE, or Bluetooth 4.0 (check your device compatibility here: http://bit.ly/2wAQZTo).
To connect to BB-9E, launch the app and tap the connect button. The app will scan for any Droids nearby. When you see the BB-9E icon appear, tap on the icon and it should start to connect. Once the app is connected to BB-9E, tap the Confirm button and you should successfully connect to BB-9E. If BB-9E's icon does not appear during detection, check to see if your BB-9E is charged and nearby your device.
Q: How do I reset BB-9E?
A: To reset BB-9E, place the Droid in his charging base, and press and hold the small button on the side of the charging base while simultaneously lifting the Droid off of the base. Wait a few seconds, and then place BB-9E back on the base. Now you’re all set!
Q: How do I aim BB-9E?
A: Once you've connected to BB-9E using the app, you will enter into Aim mode. Drag to rotate the 3D model of BB-9E that you see on the screen -- a blue light on BB-9E’s body will rotate simultaneously while you do this. Rotate the blue light on your Droid’s body until the light faces you and BB-9E’s dome faces away from you. Once the blue light faces you, stop rotating the on-screen BB-9E and tap the Drive icon. When you move the joystick, BB-9E should drive in the direction you want him to go.
If Droid requires you to aim him again, just tap the Aim icon and repeat the above. EASY!
Q: How do I put BB-9E to sleep?
A: Just turn off the lights in your room and close the blinds. JK! When you close the app, BB-9E goes to sleep. When you put your Droid on the charger, it will self-align for optimal charging then turn off. Note: to put BB-9E into sleep mode, the app needs to be completely closed, and not running in the background.
Q: Is BB-9E waterproof?
A: The BB-9E app-enable Droid body is water resistant, but its dome is not. To be safe, we recommend keeping your Droid dry.
