Using the SENA SD1000U Bluetooth Communication Device
Introduction
The SD1000U appears as a com port to a laptop. The Bluetooth stack is in the actual dongle. It is not like the UD100 where the device driver is in the laptop. Therefore you should
NOT use any Bluetooth Manager that you might be familiar with. Use the Parani software
to manage the device.

This document was created using the SD1000U on a Windows 7® laptop.
•
To set GPS low Latency, see GPS Low Latency.
•
For WinRiver II configuration details, see WinRiver II Port Setup.
•
For simplicity and best throughput set all baud rates to 115200Kb.
1. Plug in the SD1000U device to a USB port and determine the Com port as shown in
the snap shot for a Windows 7® laptop. Refer to the Sena documentation or the diagram on the device for switch settings. The switches on the dongle determine the
baud rate between the dongle and the laptop.
2. Load the ParaniWin software from the CD on to your computer. The icon on your
laptop desktop will look as follows.

3. Run the software. It looks as follows:
4. Remember the switches on the dongle determine the baud rate between the
dongle and the laptop. You will need to select the correct baud rate to get to next
screen.
5. Click Apply. You will receive a Completed Configuration message.
6. Click Connection (out). Click Search.

7. This example shows a RiverRay system. Click Connect. You will receive a “Connected successfully” message.
8. Exit the ParaniWin program. Run WinRiver II or BBTalk as appropriate. In WinRiver
II, click Configure. Select the baud rate of the RiverRay and click Test Port.
9. Click File, New Measurement. Note the green indicator.

10. If you want to connect to a different device, start the ParaniWin program and click
the Disconnect button (first) and then connect to the new device.
GPS Low Latency setting:
If you are using the SD1000U for a StreamPro GPS connection, it is necessary to set the
latency to 0mSec.
1. Disconnect any existing connection (if applicable)
2. Exit the ParaniWin program
3. Use BBTalk set it to the appropriate port, baud rate and set ECHO on.
4. Enter AT to get attention. Then enter ATS3=1.
5. This is an example of what you should expect.
6. Refer to the Parani documentation on the CD if necessary.
This is the relevant section of the Parani documentation:

WinRiver II GPS Port Setup
1. If the GPS is connected directly to the RiverRay, then the RiverRay will multiplex the
GPS data into the raw PD0 data which will be transmitted over a Bluetooth
connection to the laptop.
2. In WinRiver II version 2.07 do NOT check the GPS box (this is checked when the GPS
data is coming in on it’s own serial port directly to the laptop). Instead enter the SF
command in the User section: SF4 = 9600, SF5 = 19200, SF6 = 38400, SF7 = 57600,
SF8 = 115200 baud.
3. WinRiver II version 2.08 (due out summer/fall 2011) works as follows: The example
shows GPS at 115200. There is no need to set the SF command in the User window.

Trouble shooting
From a troubleshooting perspective it can be more expedient to use BBTalk instead of
WinRiver II.
Do a CR1 followed by a CS. The binary data will look as follows:
