Connecting your AirTurn PED

All Categories / Devices and Accessories

AirTurn’s PED features six different modes for compatibility with a wide range of devices. Using the PED’s mode 1 will give you the best battery life and won’t interfere with iOS’s virtual on-screen keyboard. Modes 2 and up are not recommended due to double signal transmission introduced in recent firmware updates.

Note: AirTurn PED requires a Bluetooth Smart-capable device, iPad 1 and 2 not supported.

Switching PED modes:

  • Turn on the PED.
  • Press and hold the MODE button. The red LED will flash once per second from 1 to 6 flashes. The number of flashes corresponds to the same MODE number. Be sure to count the flashes.
  • Release the MODE button following the number of flashes that reflects the desired MODE. The blue and red LEDs will flash together the number of times indicating which MODE has been set.
  • IMPORTANT: You must restart the device after switching between modes 1 and 2. With the PED powered on, press and hold the power button for six seconds. After two seconds, the PED will appear to power down. Continue to hold the power button. At six seconds both LEDs will blink three times. After the third blink release the power button. Once the device is reset and you turn it back on, you will need to re-select mode 1, as it defaults to mode 2.

Connecting via mode 1 (forScore 8.3 or newer):

  • Check the “Bluetooth” section of the Settings app for your PED under the “My Devices” list. If listed, tap the circled “i” button to the right of it and select “Forget This Device.”
  • If you haven’t done so already, set your PED to mode 1 (see above).
  • Open forScore and tap the center of the screen to show the title bar, if necessary.
  • Tap the toolbox icon (the far right of the title bar) to open the Tools menu.
  • With forScore 10 or earlier, choose Devices from the list. With forScore 11 or later, choose Settings, then Devices.
  • In the Devices panel, select “AirTurn PED.”
  • Ensure that “AirTurn Support” is enabled and select your PED from the devices list when it appears.
