I have loaded the s/w on my laptop and I have paired the laptop with the bike. I then started the software and it seems that the next step is to register a device which I am trying to do via Bluetooth. I press the box marked bluetooth and highlight my device and then a box comes up that it is connecting. Nothing then happens!!

Any help greatley appreciated.

Hello Kiteman,

first of all welcome here.

@ KWT Software -> Do you use KWT update 2.0.1.22 or 2.0.1.32

Have you already watched the racer S Login tutorial video (sorry it is in German)?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAVweINCWSI

What model or brand is your Bluetooth dongle?

Greetings from Austria

Hi Erik

Thanks for welcoming me.

I am using 2.01.22.

I did try watching the tutorials but didnt understand them because they are all in german!

I haven't got a Bluetooth dongle. My laptop has bluetooth and I believe the Racer S has Bluetooth so do I need a dongle. I bought the World Tours Pack (version 2.01) with the bike which came with several wires. Do i need a sperate dongle with this and if so which one?

Many thanks

Paul

By the way are there any plans to do the videos in English or is this product only meant for german speakers?

The other thing that I should have said is that my laptop connects via Bluetooth (in the control panel) with the bike. It is when I get into the Kettler s/w that there seems to be a problem.

Thanks again for your help.

Hello Kiteman,

I am only a private KWT user, so I don't know anything about a English tutorial Version.

With a new racer s you do not need the big KWT box (200 €) only the software update version. -> you will change in KT the gears by pressing the buttons on your Ergo display

See: http://www.wwsfitshop.de/produktliste/category/kettler/product/kettler-world-tours-20-upgrade-dvd.html

or the Download Version.
http://www.wwsfitshop.de/produktliste/category/kettler/product/kettler-world-tours-20-upgrade-download.html

Can you write me your racer s device number?
See on the Frame down.

Versions of the racer s.:
07988-700
07988-750
07988-755

You can try running FirmwareUpdate.exe
at your folder. C:\Program Files (x86)\KETTLER\WORLD TOURS 2.0

Then you have to press the same buttons on your racer s display as shown in the racer s Login tutorial.

After a Bluetooth Connection was established this program show you 3 possibilities.

1. Everything is fine -> Train with your BT racer s.
2. Your racer s needs a Firmware Update. (will be done be the program itself.
3. You Need a new a display change. Only with 07988-700
device number.


If you will get no BT Connection when your racer flashes the blue LEDs think about trying a Belkin or Wintech BT dongle.

https://www.wwsfitshop.de/produktliste/category/zubehoer/product/usb-bluetooth-dongle-wintech-bt-15-20-edr.html

You Need a running BT Connection in any case. If you are using your control Panels via wires or not.

Greetings from Austria

Erik

Hi Erik

Greetings from a sunny london to Austria

First of all many many thanks. Because of the speed of your response and your expertise I thought you were from kettler. It is a shame they dont have anyone as good as you!!

I have a sheet called Prufzertifikat whcih states a serial of 07988-750-1005 - does that help?

I was so sure that I wanted World Tours that i bought it with the bike (maybe a mistake) but in any case I have it now.

When I start the software there are 5 buttons down the bottom - 3 are highlighted 'Log In' , 'Analyse' and 'Settings'. there is a big arrow pointing at settings and a box saying 'No devices are configured yet! Click Settings to set up a Device'. SO i clcik Settings.

On the next screen there is the ability to Add Devices and an arrow pointing at that. I press Add. That takes me to a screen which has 3 buttons at the top left 'Interface' 'Bluetooth' and 'Demo'. I have pressed Bluetooth and then press Select. A windows screen pops up which ask me to choose which of my regsieterd bluetooth devices I want and I choose the one called Racer S 42147F. At that point a window pops up showing that it is scanning for Bluetooth.

If you think that means I need a Bluetooth dongle then I will order one tonight.

I did try and update the firmware but I have a feeling the same problem happened because again my laptop just tried to connect to the bike.

Any thoughts?

In the meantime I have ordered the Belin BT dongle just in case. i can always send it back.

Once again many thanks

Paul

Hello Kiteman,

thanks for your reply.

I think.
When your PC is waiting for BT connection you have to do something at your racer s shown in the tutorial Video ->
Then the blue LEDS at your racer s should be flashing.
PC -> will find racer s then.

I think holdig the gear up button at your racer s might help during configuration.

I don't own a kettler BT device so I am not 100% shure of that what I suggest to you.

I think you don't need a new BT dongle, you have to press some buttons that your racer s shows flashing blue LEDS while your PC is searching for BT devices.

-> look again at the tutorial Video and then try your BT configutration again.

Look at your racer s manual too.

greetings from Austria

Hi Kiteman,

I had this problem when I originally bought a racer S. I have found now that most bluetooth dongles work OK and I have a laptop with its own inbuilt bluetooth that also connects without problem. I don't know if this is exactly the same problem that I had, but the solution was very simple once I stumbled on it:

The program was getting to the point where it was trying to connect to the Racer S and then appeared to hang up. I eventually found that if I minimized the WT program down to the task bar there was a message behind it indicating that the laptop was waiting for a pairing code even though I thought that it was already paired. Erik had already tipped me off that the software will accept the code 0000, so I put it in and problem solved.

I'm sorry if this doesn't solve your particular problem, but I thought that it was worth writing.
