I have the EZ-B v3 and it is now discontinued. When I downloaded the newest version of the software, it does not allow me to use Bluetooth to connect. How can I connect via Bluetooth using the new software with the EZ-B v3? If that is not possible, can I download a previous version that will allow me to connect via Bluetooth?
Upgrade to ARC Pro

Time to upgrade to a EZB4..:)
I know i should upgrade but want to see if i could salvage this guy.
I am able to pair to the laptop and my two com ports show up.
I am running windows 10, let me know if that can be an issue.
If has been a very very long time since you ran the V3 you should probably run the firmware updater and get it to the latest version. That will also confirm the BT connectivity is really working as well. If the firmware updater also can't connect, then there may be something wrong with the V3.
I have a similar story.
I used my old notebook with oldest EZ-B software version 2012.
In her window "Connection" I have the opportunity to choose not only the IP address, a COM port too. You can select the COM port of your BT connection and connect to the robot.
P.S. A new version of the robot 4 I have also ordered.
