How to setup bluetooth

Bluetooth is a proprietary, open wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances from fixed and mobile devices, and creating personal area networks with high levels of security.

On VP-R48G, users can use Bluetooth to transfer files, share contact information with other Bluetooth portable devices by installing Bluetooth Application, or use Bluetooth headset for making calls.

To connect to a Bluetooth device, turn on VP-R48G’s Bluetooth radio first. The first time when using a new Bluetooth device with the VP-R48G, “pair” the device with VP-R48G so that both devices know how to connect securely to each other. After that, users could simply connect to a pared device. Turn off Bluetooth if it’s not used.
