Go Direct sensors work with devices that run Mac OS, iOS, Windows, Chrome OS, and Android. Not every device is created equally, so to know if the sensor will connect to your device via BlueTooth requires knowing more about your device.
A Bluetooth 4.0 radio, an operating system that supports it (see list below), and Graphical Analysis or Graphical Analysis Pro are all required.
Bluetooth radios with version 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 are commonly available. While 4.0 is the minimum supported version, systems with 4.2 radios may exhibit better data throughput rates if the OS also supports it.
It is difficult for Vernier to keep a list of all compatible hardware. If you have a particular Chromebook or tablet, for example, do a Google search on the full model number. One can then find manufacturer specifications that reveal the type of radio available.
Supporting operating systems include:
ChromeOS 49 or newer
Android OS 6.01 or newer
macOS 10.10 or newer
Windows 10 update 1607 or newer
iOS 9 or newer
Older operating systems lack the needed Bluetooth tools to work with Go Direct.
Graphical Analysis app (version 4 or newer) or Graphical Analysis Pro (any version) is also required. Older versions do not support the Go Direct sensor line.
Note that LabQuest 2 (most models) and LabQuest 3 (all models) support Go Direct sensor connected via Bluetooth.
How do I know if my LabQuest will work with Go Direct Sensors and Go Wireless devices?
