9 Using Bluetooth

Your HP iPAQ comes with built-in Bluetooth technology that allows shortrange connections and provides fast, reliable, wireless communication.

With Bluetooth powered on, you can send information or perform the following tasks wirelessly between two Bluetooth devices, within a range of 10 meters (approximately 33 feet):

Exchange contacts, calendar items, and tasks

Send or exchange business cards

Transfer files

Synchronize with a computer through an ActiveSync connection

Partner with a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone and use the cell phone as a wireless modem

Partner with a Bluetooth-enabled portable notebook and use your

HP iPAQ as a wireless modem

Connect to other Bluetooth devices (Virtual COM port)

Use a Bluetooth headset with your HP iPAQ

Use Bluetooth headphones or Stereo speakers with your HP iPAQ

Print to a Bluetooth printer

Connect to a Bluetooth keyboard

Create a personal area network (PAN) to chat, play games, etc.

NOTE: Use of dial-up and wireless Internet, e-mail, corporate networks, and other wireless communications, such as Bluetooth-enabled devices, may require separately purchased additional hardware and other compatible equipment, in addition to a standard Wireless Local Area

Network (WLAN) or Wi-Fi infrastructure and a separately purchased service contract. Check with your service provider for availability and coverage in your area. Not all Web content may be available. Some

Web sites may not be formatted to fit Pocket PC screens and may require installation of additional software.

Locating and Selecting a Device

Several tasks require you to locate a device and connect to it. When you are required to locate a device, the Bluetooth browser assists by searching for a function that supports other Bluetooth devices.

Pairing Devices

When you pair devices, they must exchange a computer generated security key prior to each connection. The security key is generated from a unique Bluetooth device address, a random number, and a userdefined password.

Using Bluetooth

9–8

After two devices are paired, they have a trusted relationship with each other. No additional input is needed from the user. Therefore, connections and activities can be performed between the paired devices without constant authorization from the user.

NOTE: The remote device must have Bluetooth turned on and set up to allow discovery before the connection can occur. For more information,

refer to ”Setting Accessibility Properties.”

To pair devices:

1.

From the

Today

screen on the HP iPAQ, tap the

iPAQ Wireless

icon in the Command bar
