Talking to my ProChrono
« on: February 03, 2019, 05:30:38 PM »
Basic ProChrono...

My iphone doesn't have an audio port.   If I use the audio to lightning adapter, the app detects a connected chrono.  It doesn't detect any bullets crossing the chrono.   I have the same problem when I plug the ProChrono into a Samsung tablet.   I had been using an old iPad, but the audio port isn't working anymore.

Any hints on how to get things working so I can chrono ammo?   I really don't want to go back to pencil and paper.    Do I need to go buy a G2 or some other chrono?

Which Chrono? I have a Magneto and a G2. I've really liked the G2. The magneto is great but not as utilitarian.

tell your chrono that if it doesn't start talking to your tablet, you will let someone from the CZ Forum shoot it    O0

So when you get this audio file, what is it you intend to do ? It would seem to me that with an "audio file" the only thing you can do is write it down manually. Which gets you back to pencil and paper.

On my old iPad, it captured the information and I could email myself all of the data.

So it's more than simple audio. You were getting data out of the same port.

Taken at face value, that doesn't sound correct. Audio and data come out at different voltage levels. Just a wild guess, but that may be why your iPad quit working.

The Caldwell unit i have uses the audio jack to sync up the chrono and phone app.  It works and is designed to connect this way.

Smitty,

I think you going to have to contact Pro Chrono to figure out how (if possible) to connect without the audio port on your iphone.  I imagine there is a way but they would be experts you need to make it happen.  There is probably a setting on the phone that needs to be tweaked in order for it to sync properly.

Cheers,
Toby
