The following section deals strictly with Secure Connections. By default the
Secure box is checked in the driver and is the recommended method, as it
provides the best security and reconnection.
SECURED CONNECTIONS
1. On mobile devices with Windows Mobile 5.0
you may see a screen warning that the
Stowaway Keyboard driver will not work
with the built-in Bluetooth Keyboard driver.
You must tap Disable built-in HID driver in
order to get the full functionality of the
keyboard.
2. A Secure connection requires authentication
by entering the same passkey on the mobile
device and then on the keyboard. A Secure
connection allows automatic reconnection.
Before starting the connection make sure the
keyboard is Discoverable by the mobile device.
To do this, press the <Ctrl> <Left Fn> <Right
Fn> keys together on the keyboard until the
green LED (above the <T> key) flashes once
per second. Then tap the Connect button on
the screen.
3. The mobile devices will scan for the Stowaway
Keyboard. Once it is discovered, a prompt will
display allowing you to enter the passkey.
Stowaway Ultra-Slim Owner’s Manual for Windows Mobile

4. You will be prompted for a passkey and will see
a Bluetooth Passkey dialog box. Enter a
passkey of your own choosing (of 1-9 digits)
using the mobile device’s on-screen keyboard
and tap OK. Then, type the same passkey
number on the Stowaway keyboard, using
<Left Fn> + <Number> keys. When finished,
press the <Enter> key.
NOTE: The passkey must contain only digits,
for example 111.
5. If the passkey is not entered correctly, the
connection will fail. In this case you will need
to repeat steps 1-4 from above.
NOTE: Please, make sure that the passkey is
entered on-screen first, tap OK and then follow
with the passkey on the keyboard. When
finished, press the <Enter> key on the
keyboard.
6. The keyboard is now paired and available for
use. If the keyboard is closed, the mobile
device is turned off or either is idle too long the
connection will be broken. To reconnect, make
sure both devices are powered on and within
range, then press a key reestablish the
connection. If reconnection fails tap the
Connect button on the BT status page.
NOTE: It may take a couple of seconds for the
connection to be reestablished after a key
press.

UNSECURED CONNECTIONS
The following sequence may depend on the settings in your Bluetooth
Manager and which Bluetooth stack is present on your mobile device. For
more information see Unsecured Mode Settings.
1. Make the keyboard discoverable by pressing
<Ctrl> <Left Fn> <Right Fn> keys together on
the keyboard until the green LED (above the
<T> key) flashes once per second. Make sure
the Secure box is not checked and tap the
Connect button on the screen.
2. The mobile device will scan for the Stowaway
Keyboard.
3. After the connection is made you may be

4. Depending on the mobile device’s Bluetooth
Accessibility Settings and Bluetooth Stack
you may see this screen next. Tapping Make
PDA accessible will set the Bluetooth
Accessibility Settings to allow automatic
reconnection of the mobile device and the
keyboard when both are powered on and in
range.
NOTE: This is a vulnerable configuration;
please see Unsecured Mode Settings for more
information.
5. If you choose Make PDA accessible you will
be prompted with this warning screen, tap Yes
to finish making the connection.
6. If you choose not to Make PDA accessible by
tapping Cancel or No you will be warned that

OTHER FEATURES
1. The Bluetooth Status Page displays the
current state of the Bluetooth connection
between your mobile device and the Stowaway
keyboard. You can enable and disable the
connection, and enter text to test the
connection. Keyboard battery strength and
firmware version are also displayed here. For
more information on the Advanced tab see
Power Efficient Modes.
2. On the Bluetooth Status Page the keyboard
battery information is displayed. The three
states of the battery are:
a. Normal – This is the most common state
of the battery.
b. Low – This is a warning that the batteries
have reached a threshold where they
should be replaced soon.
c. Critical – This means the batteries are in
imminent danger of no longer functioning.
3. If the keyboard batteries reach a low or critical
state a message will be displayed on the Today
screen.
NOTE: The keyboard will display a RED LED
above the <T> key to show when the batteries
do not have enough power for the Bluetooth
radio to function.
Stowaway Ultra-Slim Owner’s Manual for Windows Mobile
Page 9
4. If several Stowaway keyboards happen to be
nearby and in Discoverable Mode, the scan
will display all of these devices in the list. The
keyboard ID (Bluetooth address) printed on
the back of the keyboard should be compared
with the IDs in the list and the desired
keyboard selected.
5. If the application finds more than one
Bluetooth stack on the mobile device, it will
display a Stack Selection dialog box. If the
device has a built-in Bluetooth system, that
stack should be used. If the device is using a
removable Bluetooth card such as a SDIO
card, a different stack may need to be used. If
the wrong stack is selected, a connection may
not be possible. In such case, rerun the
connection procedure and select the correct
stack.
6. If the keyboard driver displays the Bluetooth
system not detected message, first verify
that the driver has been loaded into Main
Memory. Next, be sure that the device has
not been upgraded with an incompatible
version of the Bluetooth stack. In this case the
keyboard software must be replaced with a
compatible version.
Stowaway Ultra-Slim Owner’s Manual for Windows Mobile
Page 10
POWER EFFICIENT MODES
1. The Advanced tab allows access to different
power efficiency modes.
2. The Stowaway keyboard is designed to operate
in Power Efficient Mode in compliance with the
Bluetooth specification. However, some mobile
devices have difficulty operating effectively with
Power Efficient Mode set to ON. The default
setting is Auto, this allows the keyboard driver
to determine whether to use Power Efficient
mode or not. If the driver detects a mobile
device which may work incorrectly in Power
Efficient mode, it will turn it OFF automatically.
You should turn OFF Power Efficient mode
manually if you experience problems such as:
¾ Inability to Scan for other Bluetooth devices.
¾ Inability to Connect to other Bluetooth devices.
¾ Inability to Discover the mobile device and connect to it from another
Bluetooth host.
NOTE: Turning off Power Efficient mode will shorten the battery life in your
Bluetooth devices.
Power Efficient mode may be turned ON manually to extend battery life if
the mobile device fully supports it or only one Bluetooth peripheral is used at
a time.

FIRMWARE UPGRADE
Depending on the version of your keyboard, you may see an Upgrade
Firmware button on the BT page, and a message advising that the
firmware be upgraded. This updates the keyboard’s ROM software and will
improve functionality and compatibility with more devices.
1. Tap Upgrade firmware to begin the process.
NOTE: This process may also be done from the
Advanced page by tapping Upgrade
firmware.
2. Press <Ctrl> <Left Fn> <Right Fn>
simultaneously until the green light above the
<T> key flashes once per second, then tap
Start.
NOTE: While the firmware is being upgraded
be sure that the keyboard and mobile device
are not disturbed and that no other Bluetooth
activities are taking place.
3. When the firmware upgrade process is
completed, power cycle the keyboard by
closing and reopening it.
NOTE: Following the upgrade, it will be
necessary to reestablish a connection between
the keyboard and the mobile device. See
Configuring the Keyboard to Your Device for
instructions.
Stowaway Ultra-Slim Owner’s Manual for Windows Mobile
Page 12
Reconnecting the Stowaway keyboard
For information on Unsecured connections and re-connections see
Unsecured Mode Settings.
Despite a high degree of reliability, the Bluetooth connection could break for
many reasons:
¾ The keyboard will power off when the cover is
closed and the Bluetooth connection will be
lost.
¾ For power efficiency, the keyboard will
automatically power down after an idle period
(when there is no activity for approximately 3
minutes).
¾ When the mobile device is turned off, the
established Bluetooth connection will be lost.
¾ When the mobile device and the keyboard
move beyond the wireless range (~10m), the
connection will be lost.
When any of these conditions occurs, the connection will be lost and the
software will switch to waiting mode. To restore the connection, make sure
the keyboard and mobile device are powered on and in range, then tap any
key on the keyboard. The connection should be reestablished within 2-3
seconds but this may be delayed if the Bluetooth system on the mobile
device is busy. For example, after the mobile device is powered on, it may
take 10 or more seconds for the Bluetooth system to re-initialize.
NOTE: Do not press <Ctrl> <Left Fn> <Right Fn> together. This will break
the bond between the keyboard and the Pocket PC device. If this happens,
you will have to establish a new connection as described above.
Even when disconnected, the mobile device and the keyboard remain
bonded. The keyboard will only reconnect to the bonded mobile device and
the mobile device will only listen to the bonded keyboard. To break the bond
press <Ctrl> <Left Fn> <Right Fn> for approximately 1 second or until the
green LED flashes quickly. Normally the bond will not need to be broken
unless the keyboard will be used with another mobile device or another
keyboard will be used with the mobile device. Therefore, please avoid
pressing <Ctrl> <Left Fn> <Right Fn> during normal operation. If this has
happened, you will have to establish a new connection as described in the
Secured Connections section above.
Stowaway Ultra-Slim Owner’s Manual for Windows Mobile
Page 13
Unsecured Mode Settings
For those using Windows Mobile 2003 or a non-Microsoft Bluetooth stack,
there are two Bluetooth settings that affect how the keyboard and the
mobile device connect in Unsecured mode. All Devices and Paired
devices only.
In order to automatically reconnect in Unsecured mode, the mobile device’s
Bluetooth settings must be set to allow All Devices to connect. Each
manufacturer’s Bluetooth configuration screens differ, but generally you will
find the All devices and Paired devices only options within the Bluetooth
Settings under the Accessibility tab. This set of screens may be available
directly via a Bluetooth icon on the Today screen, or by navigating to the
Start MenuÖSettingsÖConnections tab.
If your device is set to Paired devices only you will be prompted to Make
PDA accessible during the initial set up of the keyboard. This will change
the settings to All devices.
NOTE: Because they are not encoded, Unsecured connections do not
provide built-in signal encryption and are vulnerable to eavesdropping of the
data transmitted between the keyboard and the mobile device.
If you choose to create an Unsecure connection and Cancel at the Make PDA
accessible dialog, the settings will remain in the Paired devices only state.
This means that before each use of the keyboard it will need to be made
discoverable (<Ctrl> <Left Fn> <Right Fn>) and the connection will need to
be manually set up, see Unsecured Connections for instructions on how to
do this.
Proper settings for automatic reconnection of
keyboard in Unsecured mode using a nonMicrosoft Bluetooth stack.
NOTE: For those using windows Mobile 5.0 or a Microsoft Bluetooth stack
there are no adjustments to make it is simply a matter of checking or unchecking the Secure box on the BT page.

Disabling the Stowaway Keyboard
When the Stowaway keyboard is no longer needed, the keyboard driver may
be disabled by tapping the Disable button on the BT or Config page. The
Connection is not set up message will then be displayed on the BT page.
NOTE: Disabling the Stowaway keyboard will not automatically turn off the
Bluetooth radio. Conversely, turning the Bluetooth radio off while the
Stowaway keyboard driver is still enabled will not work. Because of the
behavior of the Bluetooth stack, the Bluetooth radio will automatically turn
back on after a few seconds. To turn the radio off, the Stowaway keyboard
must be disabled first.
To re-enable the connection, tap the Connect button on the BT page or tap
Enable on the Config page. See Configuring the Keyboard to Your Device
for complete instructions.
Secure Connection Overview
When a secure connection is established, the paired devices share a
permanent security bond. This bond is established when two devices create
and exchange a Link Key, this process is also known as pairing. Link Keys
are based on a unique Bluetooth Device Address, an internally generated
random number and a user defined Passkey.
With a Bluetooth connection, transmissions may be intercepted. In order to
limit this exposure, a secure connection should be set up. This encrypts data
sent from the keyboard to the mobile device, creating a virtual cable. This
means that there is a 1:1 relationship between the mobile device and the
keyboard and it will not respond to connection requests from other devices.
The mobile device on the other hand will retain the ability to create new
pairings with other devices.
The mobile device searches the Bluetooth radio band until it finds the
keyboard. If the Secure box is checked it will prompt for a Passkey. Once
completed, each time the mobile device and keyboard are powered on within
range of each other, the devices will be reconnected with a key press.
Stowaway Ultra-Slim Owner’s Manual for Windows Mobile
Page 17
Keyboard Status Light
When the keyboard is open there is a light above the <T> key that indicates
the status of the keyboard.
¾ When the keyboard status light flashes a fast green light (approx. once
per second) it is in Discoverable mode. This is the state that allows it
to be detected by the mobile device. To place the keyboard into
Discoverable mode, use the <Ctrl> <Left Fn> <Right Fn> key
combination.
¾ When keyboard status light flashes a slow green light (approx. once
every four seconds) it is connected to the mobile device and is
available for use.
¾ When the keyboard status light is solid red for 5 seconds after power
on, the batteries must be replaced before the keyboard can resume
normal operation.
¾ When the keyboard is not connected to the mobile device the status
light is dark. This happens when a connection or reconnection has not
been established or the connection has been broken.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What should I do when I type on the keyboard and nothing
happens?
•
•
•
•
•
•
Check that mobile device’s batteries are charged.
Verify that keyboard has sufficient power to operate.
Check to make sure that the keyboard software is installed properly
according to the instructions.
Check the BT tab of the Keyboard Control Panel to make sure the
Stowaway BT Keyboard is enabled.
Check the Config tab of the Keyboard Control Panel to make sure
you’ve selected the appropriate keyboard type. After tapping Enable,
you should select Bluetooth wireless keyboard.
Use the Keyboard Help icon to launch the help.
Q: I tried to turn off the Bluetooth radio and it automatically turned
back on, what should I do?
The Stowaway keyboard must be disabled before the Bluetooth radio can be
turned off. See the Disabling the Stowaway Keyboard section for more
information.
Q: What are the Serial and IR tabs of the Keyboard Control Panel
for?
If you should ever select and setup the Connected serial keyboard or
Infrared wireless keyboard option on the Config tab of the Keyboard
Control Panel, you will see a Serial and/or IR tab added to the Keyboard
Control Panel. Even if you change back to the Stowaway BT keyboard
the Serial and/or IR tab will remain in the Keyboard Control Panel. Serial
keyboards use a physical connection versus a wireless connection to a
mobile device. Only users of Stowaway keyboards that use a physical
connection will use the Serial tab. Infrared keyboards use an infrared line of
sight connection to a mobile device. Only users of Stowaway Infrared
Wireless keyboards will use the IR Tab. Users of the Stowaway BT
keyboard can ignore this tab.
Q: What is the Stowaway Bluetooth Mouse button for?
This is used to setup the optional Bluetooth mouse. This is only for users
that also have the Stowaway Bluetooth Mouse.
Stowaway Ultra-Slim Owner’s Manual for Windows Mobile
Page 25
Q: I received an error message saying the keyboard driver cannot
find a supported Bluetooth component, what should I do?
The current version of the keyboard driver supports Broadcom Bluetooth for
Windows CE (BTW-CE) version ≥1.4.x, Drakar (Socket) and Microsoft
Bluetooth stacks. If you have a different version, you may need to check for
upgrades for either the Bluetooth stack or for the keyboard driver. (With
some Bluetooth stacks it is possible to determine the version of the stack
installed on your mobile device; locate the Bluetooth icon and tap it with the
stylus to open the application. Find the Bluetooth About tab and tap to open
the associated page. There you will find the version and build for the
installed Bluetooth stack.)
Should the keyboard driver find more than one Bluetooth component on
your mobile device (for example if you have Bluetooth built-in and a
removable Bluetooth card), then a dialog box will be displayed with a choice
of available components. You will need to choose the Bluetooth component
that you wish to be used with the Bluetooth keyboard and tap OK.
NOTE: Some Bluetooth components may not work with the keyboard. If
you are not able to connect to the keyboard, you may have to return to the
Config page, tap Enable again, select Bluetooth wireless keyboard, tap
Setup, and then select another Bluetooth component.
Q: My keyboard was connected and character input to mobile device
worked fine, but after a certain idle period, it seems that the
connection was lost.
Refer to the Reconnecting the Stowaway keyboard and Unsecured Mode
Settings sections.
Q: How do I uninstall the keyboard driver?
Select Start=>Settings=>System tab=>Remove Programs. Select
Stowaway Keyboard and Mouse Driver from the list of applications then
tap the Remove button.

Important Battery Information
•
•
•
•
•
Keep battery away from children.
Always replace old, weak or worn-out batteries promptly and recycle
or dispose of them properly. Before inserting a new battery, the
battery compartment should be cleaned. If fluid from the battery
comes into contact with skin or clothes, flush with water immediately.
Remove the battery if the device will be inactive longer than a month.
Do not open, puncture or otherwise damage the battery.
Do not use fire to dispose of battery.
Released battery electrolyte is corrosive and can cause damage to the eyes
and skin and may be toxic if swallowed.
Comfortable Typing
Research suggests that physical discomfort and injury to nerves, tendons,
and muscles may be related to repetitive motion, an improperly set up work
area, incorrect body posture, and poor work habits.
To reduce the risk of injury, follow these precautions:
•
•
•
•
•
Stand, stretch, and move around several times every hour.
Every once in a while, work on a different task with your hands. Avoid
repetitive motions. Use shortcut keys to move efficiently and avoid
repetitive, awkward movement.
Type gently and lightly.
Relax your shoulders and keep your elbows at your sides. Adjust the
keyboard so that you don’t have to stretch to reach it.
Adjust your position so that you don’t have to bend your wrists to
type; avoid placing your wrists on a sharp edge.
If you feel discomfort of numbness in your hands, wrists, arms, shoulders,
neck or back while typing, get the advice of a qualified medical professional.
