You can also “touch and drag” (B) to move items or scroll through lists by
touching and holding, then gliding your finger over the screen.
Use a finger and thumb to “pinch zoom” (C) on-screen items such as
photographs and web pages.
6.4 – UNLOCK THE SCREEN
Scroll Essential II operates in a similar manner to a touch-screen mobile phone. When it is first powered on, the
AndroidTM operating system will boot, then you will be presented with a “locked” screen.
To unlock the screen:

CHARGE THE BATTERY
It is recommended to fully charge Scroll Essential II overnight before first use. This will help prolong the useful life of
the built-in battery.

Insert the mains charger plug into the 5V DC socket (located to the left of the USB socket) on Scroll. Connect
the mains adapter to a UK 3-pin electrical socket.

Battery is full


NETWORK CONNECTIVITY
The vast majority of applications support some kind of networking / Internet functionality. There are two ways to
connect to the Internet using Scroll Essential II; either through your wireless router (access point) or by plugging in a
3G network dongle.
11.1 – CONNECT TO A WIRELESS ACCESS POINT
Scroll Essential II features standard wireless B / G / N capabilities, meaning it can connect to any router which is
compatible with the 802.11b/g/n standard. Check your router’s documentation to confirm compatibility.
NOTE
You will need your router’s wireless SSID and password to continue with these instructions.
To enable wireless networking and connect to your router:
1. Go to “Settings”  “Wireless & Networks”  “Wi-Fi” and slide the Wi-Fi switch to the right to enable it.
2. After a few seconds, Wi-Fi will be enabled and a list of available wireless network names (SSID) will appear.
Locate your wireless network on the list and touch to select it.
3. You will be asked for the password. Type it in using the keyboard which automatically appears on screen.
TIP
If you do not know your wireless password, please refer to your router’s instruction manual, or contact
your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
4. Touch the “Connect” option to complete setup of your wireless connection.
NOTE
Advanced users can touch “Show advanced options” to set up a proxy and / or manual IP configuration.
An icon will be displayed in the status bar to show wireless connection status:
Full signal
Moderate signal
Weak signal
Once you are connected to a wireless network, you can select it on the list, to view connection details (e.g. signal
strength, link speed and IP address). You can use the “Forget” option to disconnect from the network and remove
the stored password.
14
11.2 – CONNECT TO A 3G NETWORK
Scroll Essential II supports a variety of 3G dongles from various manufacturers. To view the list of supported 3G
dongles, please do the following:

2. Select “3G Support Information” to display a list of compatible 3G dongles.
To use a 3G dongle, simply connect it to the USB port on Scroll Essential II. It will automatically dial its Internet
connection.
If your 3G dongle has a full-size USB connection, you will need to use the supplied USB On-The-Go (OTG) cable to
adapt it for use with Scroll Essential II. Plug your 3G dongle into the large socket on the OTG cable, then plug the
OTG cable into the USB port on Scroll Essential II.
Full signal
NOTE
Moderate signal
Weak signal
Unlisted 3G dongles may still work with Scroll Essential II. To test your own, simply plug it in and see if it

will be compatible, and we cannot support equipment from other manufacturers.

MEMORY EXPANSION WITH MICRO SD CARD
Scroll Essential II features built-in flash memory, which can be expanded using a Micro SD card (not included). You
may use any Micro SD or Micro SDHC card, up to 32GB capacity.
The best way to use a Micro SD card is to treat it as media storage; transfer media files (videos, music and photos)
from your computer to your Micro SD card in the usual manner, then insert it into Scroll Essential II as shown.
To insert and use a Micro SD card:
1. Push the Micro SD card (label side down) into the slot indicated in the diagram below, until it clicks and locks
in place.
2. Scroll Essential II will automatically mount the Micro SD card for use.
To eject a Micro SD card:

Push the Micro SD card inwards slightly until it clicks, then release pressure. It will pop out from the socket.
It is recommended to organise your Micro SD card by creating folders for different media types in the root:
eBooks
Music
Pictures
Videos
Place your media files in the respective folders. This may help if you need to instruct an application where to look
for media files.
NOTE
For third party applications you may need to point them to the Micro SD card to read your media files.
Refer to the instructions specific to each application for directions on how to do this.

“Windows Explorer”.
Drag and drop files from your computer’s storage drives onto Scroll
Essential II, just like you would with any other external storage
device.
To disconnect from a computer:
