GS 911- Didn't do my homework
First off, the GS 911 is a great diagnostic tool and mine is working just fine....with the USB cable. Problem is, I bought the version ($50 more) that provides bluetooth capability. So I thought that I could use the bluetooth from my new Toshiba notebook and not have to mess with cables.
The GS 911 is designed to support bluetooth from mobile devices like cell phones etc. and their website clearly states that you are on your own if you plan to use it on a PC, laptop or notebook and they really don't want you to call them to resolve this issue. I've yet to get mine to connect to the Toshiba via bluetooth and apparently, I need to create a COM Port that uses Windows bluetooth drivers. I'm not a PC wiz and this is not something I'll be able to do on my own.
So the purpose of this note is not to complain, just to let potential buyers know of the problems I ran into trying to use bluetooth to connect with my notebook, and to urge them to carefully read the company website's FAQs etc.
If anyone has successfully been able to bluetooth to a laptop or notebook, please let me know how to go about it.
