To pair the AirTurn BT-105/BT-106 with a Bluetooth-equipped Android tablet.

1. Go to Settings and turn Bluetooth off.
2. Turn your BT-105/BT-106 or Digit On. When it is blinking green every second, press and hold the ON/OFF switch for 6-8 seconds, or until the LED light blinks red/green/red/green very quickly. Let go. If the light turned off, turn it back on again.
3. Turn the Bluetooth settings ON on the Android.
4. Tap the "Visible" box so that a check mark appears.
5. Tap Scan for Devices in the upper right corner.
6. The AirTurn serial number will show in the Bluetooth list. Tap and it will Pair.
7. Once Paired, tap the AirTurn serial number again to begin the Connecting process. It will ask you to type a series of letters/numbers. Click Next or Continue.
8. Once Connected go to your App to make sure you are able to activate page turns (if not, you may need to change the Mode )
Note: Some Android tablets do not have the ability to connect to external Bluetoothe keyboards. The AirTurn needs Bluetooth HID compatibiity in order to work. 

Hi !

I was using a PoV Mobii 13.3 android 4.04 tablet with airturn bt-105 and had trouble with the first power on. I needed to reset the pedal for every first power on, and never turn off the tablet or i needed to reset it again.
I bought the onyx max and it's now even worse, bt is freezing...

Would you recommand rather the Airturn Ped (bt 4) or the pageflip cicada with the onyx ? 

I can already say that the epaper 13.3 tablet is wonderful for piano sheet, with the last firmware upgrade the page switch is fast. I'm just wondering why we can't put android 4.4 on the tablet.

2017 is looking promising. After Sony, Onyx and Netronix there is Dasung bringing 13.3" E Ink display with Android.
It should have dual boot with Win10, new higher resolution 2200x1650 (spect ratio 4:3).
Hopefully it will include bluetooth.

I sent a tweet to Dasung and they replied back that there was not Bluetooth but they would consider it. Obviously not for this one, though.

I have tried it on the Onyx N96ML with 9.7 inch e-ink display. This version has stylus only and backlight. It also exists in a version with touch+backlight and touch+stylus (but no backlight). i suspect that the current sw in the MAX device (13-3 inch display) is fairly the same. The device comes with a build in PDF reader with annotation.

MSP works out of the box (or rather when you install it via play store), but there are some catches. I have listed some of them here just from the top of my head.

The coloring scheme for MSP could be better. Some things (like the OK button) is very hard to see, some are impossible to see (like if you choose pen type (square/round/etc).  

Annotation works, but is rather slow compared to the build in pdf-annotation program in the device. I have only tried it with a stylus and it does require some getting-used-to time. At least compared to the build in pdf annotation program that works like a charm.   

Page turning time is not really an issue. It takes about 0.5-1.0  seconds to turn a page (which is the same as the build in PDF reader/annotator) . There is an option in the device to disable page refresh on a page turn which makes it really fast (< 0.2 second) but it also makes the page progressively harder and harder to read, because some of the ink dots are "hanging". 

The device has two hw page turn keys which can be used in the build in editor to turn-pages. These do not work in MSP. Pressing them will instead turn the volume up/down. 
As android does not native support HW page turn keys, I strongly suspect that the keys actually ARE volume keys, but that the device's build in SW uses them as page turn. Maybe MSP could support volumne as page turn or custom page turn (HW) key? Not sure if it would be something many persons would need though, but a scenario could be using your headset volumne keys as page turn ?

Zoom is not supported at all on the device as this requires pinch-zoom. My device use stylus only. Maybe a +/- zoom box could be added?

You should be able to assign the volume keys to pedal actions in the settings. This would let you turn pages with them.

I'll have to look into adding some way to incrementally zoom. This doesn't let you zoom in on a particular spot, but I guess it could still be useful for devices without gesture support.

Well live and learn. I always thought pedal actions only worked when a BT device was connected. It did work though (of course) and the hw buttons where volume from androids perspective.

The zoom would probably only be used when annotating, where there is already a move/pan tool. So just the ability to Inc/Dec 10% at a time would be a life saver.

I have been fildeling a bit more around on the device (got it 4 days ago) and must say that MS works pretty ok. Annotation is a bit hard but most of it comes from having an A4 sheet presented on 9.7 inches and no zoom. So you have to be pretty accurate. The lagging is noticeable but not a big issue, at least for me. It seams worst when using the pen tool. The highlight tool is faster. For some reason.

The device does have some other minor issues and I can write about them if someone wants to know?. For now I will fiddle a bit more around.

Good news. Onyx released today 13.3" EInk reader Max2 which has finally capacitive touch and Android 6.

It's listed on Chinese taobao store for €613.
I've no experience ordering from taobao or importing something to EU from China.

Would love to hear some experiences about buying from China.

I've never used  Taobao - which is a sort of Chinese eBay.  However, I have bought a number of items (including tablets) from other Chinese outlets - Tomtop, Deal Extreme, TinyDeal and GearBest all come to mind - shipping into Spain, with never a problem.  The only downside is that delivery times can be longer than you might hope for  -  if you want it tomorrow, buy locally.
