Getting Started with TruConnect

TruConnect provides a wireless link between your device(s) and/or a PC or mobile device.

For this release, TruConnect connects to other ACKme BLE modules and to the yACKme iPad app.

A Wahoo evaluation board boots up with advertising turned on, and is discoverable by another Wahoo board or by the yACKme iPad app, available free from the Apple App store or from the ACKme site, Technology tab.

The easiest way to evaluate TruConnect is using two ACKme Wahoo BLE evaluation boards. The text below describes how to quickly connect two boards and stream data between them via Bluetooth Low Energy.

Let's get started! Work through the following sections in order.

Opening a TruConnect Terminal

Ensure that the AMS001-E01 boards power and UART selection switches are configured correctly - power switch: REG; UART switch: USER. See the AMS001 Evaluation Guide.
