How to Fix Mevo Plus Not Connecting To GSPro

686

 

 

If your Mevo Plus is not connecting to GSPro, ensure both devices are on the same Wi-Fi network and restart them. That solves the problem in most cases. If the issue persists, check for firmware updates on both devices, as these security settings may be affecting the connection.

 

Besides inaccurate reading of shots, connectivity issues have been a longstanding hiccup for many Flightscope Mevo Plus users.

 

It can be so frustrating that you begin to second-guess your investment of nearly $2,000 on a piece of technology. In most reported cases, the launch monitor cum simulator barely holds a connection with the GSPro for 5 minutes, and then it disconnects.

 

Having helped dozens of indoor golf players solve this problem on forums, I have written this article as an all-in-one guide for fixing connectivity issues with your Flightscope Mevo Plus, especially when it fails to pair with your GSPro.

 

First of all, let’s look into the most common and possible reasons why this issue occurs.

Mevo Plus Not Connecting To GSPro (Causes & Solutions)

 

Often, the device will lose connection for, say, every few minutes for one stretch. In some cases, it is followed by a lockup where all icons are green but the higher status remains white.

 

You may notice that the device usually starts working again only after a reboot. In case you’re in a hurry, the table below will show you the common causes of these connectivity malfunctions and their respective solutions.

 

However, I encourage you to read on to learn the complete step-by-step guide on how to do these fixes:

 

Causes Fixes
Network incompatibility Change the network settings on your device’s WiFi to 5 GHz, or you can reduce the Mevo + band to 2.4 GHz.
Problematic device or Bluetooth connectivity Troubleshoot your Android, iPhone, iPad, or device hosting the Mevo+ app.
Not within range Your phone’s or tablet’s Bluetooth or WiFi should be on and within range of the Flightscope Mevo+.

 

Let’s now look into these areas one after the other:

1. Network Incompatibility

 

One of the significant causes of Mevo Plus not connecting to GSPro is that both devices don’t have network compatibility. In many cases that I’ve addressed in forums, I often notice that the Mevo+ runs on a 5 GHz WiFi connection (band), and the owner’s device runs on a 2.4 GHz band. There, the problem lies.

Solution

 

So, you have to first change the network settings of your device’s WiFi or reduce that of the Mevo+ band.

 

Here’s how to do it:

 

  • Turn on the WiFi and Bluetooth of the device to which you wish to connect the Mevo+.
  • Navigate to advanced settings and WiFi settings on the Mevo+ app.
  • Choose 5 GHz or 2.4 GHz on the WiFi settings page.

 

Pro Tip: I recommend a 5 GHz network since it’s more reliable for streaming connections.

2. Problematic Device or Bluetooth Connectivity

 

If you ensured network compatibility and the connectivity issues persist, then it’s time to look into the Bluetooth connection or host device. When there’s a malfunction in this area, it can mess up the smooth operation of the device and simulator software.

 

Solution

 

  • Repair your Mevo+ on your device.
  • If the issue persists, force-close the app on your device and relaunch it.
  • Try turning off and on your Bluetooth.
  • If the problem emanates from the host device, consider connecting to another device’s hotspot.

3. Device Not Within Recommended Range

 

If your phone’s or tablet’s Bluetooth or WiFi is not on and in range of the Flightscope Mevo+, the launch monitor may have difficulties connecting with the GSPro.

 

Pro Tip: A reliable connection depends on the device’s proximity. This is, in fact, one of the downsides of Mevo+. It requires more space than photometric launch monitors.

 

Solution

 

  • Ensure the recommended range. The unit needs to sit 8 feet behind the hitting area when indoors and 7-8 feet when outdoors.

 

If all of these don’t solve the connectivity issues, then what you might just need is to update the firmware.

 

If any firmware upgrades are available, you should receive a notification stating so.

 

Install and check if the problem has been solved. If there’s no luck at this point, then you can consider contacting Flightscope Mevo+ customer support.

Other Mevo+ Connectivity Issues (and Fixes)

 

If you have the Flightscope Mevo+ device, the connectivity issue with your simulator software (GSPro or E6) may not be the only hiccup you have to deal with.

 

Despite standing out in the market with higher sensitivity, faster results/shot display, and third-party software integration, the launch monitor still shows connectivity problems. Here are some of the common ones I’ve encountered and their solutions.

How to Perfectly Setup Flightscope Mevo+ With GSpro (Video)

 

When setting up the FlightScope Mevo+ with the GSPro simulator, the focus is to achieve proper communication and accurate data transfer between the devices. Here’s a general guide to help you set up the FlightScope Mevo+ with GSPro:

1. Hardware Setup

 

Ensure that your FlightScope Mevo+ is properly connected and powered on. The GSPro simulator software should have been installed and updated to the latest version.

 

Connect the FlightScope Mevo+ to your computer using the provided USB cable or through a wireless connection if supported.

2. Software Configuration

 

Launch the GSPro simulator software on your computer. In the simulator settings, locate the option to connect external launch monitors or devices. This may be under “Settings,” “Launch Monitor,” or a similar menu.

 

Choose “FlightScope Mevo+” as your launch monitor from the available options.

3. Device Pairing

 

If your FlightScope Mevo+ has a Bluetooth option, ensure that Bluetooth is enabled on both the Mevo+ and your computer.

 

Pair the FlightScope Mevo+ with your computer.

 

Follow the instructions in the GSPro simulator or your computer’s Bluetooth settings to establish a connection.

4. Verify settings and test

Check the settings within both the FlightScope Mevo+ app and the GSPro simulator to ensure they are synchronized.

 

Confirm that the units of measurement, club selection, and any other relevant settings match between the two systems.

 

You can perform a few test shots to verify that the FlightScope Mevo+ is accurately capturing and transmitting data to the GSPro simulator.

 

Pay attention to factors like ball speed, launch angle, and spin rate to ensure they align with your expectations.

Does GSPro need WiFi?

If you have the Mevo+ connected to the GSPro, you don’t need WiFi internet, as you can download the courses and just play local games or drive. However, you need the internet if you plan on playing tournaments or with others online.

 

This is a huge benefit, especially when your WiFi in the garage is pretty shotty.

 

Meanwhile, you will need a strong internet connection for the Garmin Golf to E6 or GoPro interface.

 

A spotty connection will have lots and lots of frustrating disconnects. So, in such a situation, invest in a mesh WiFi system.

What are the system requirements for GSPro?

 

To effectively use the GSPro, you need the following requirements on your Windows PC:

 

  • At least 4GB of free space
  • GTX 1070 or RX 580 GPU
  • Stable internet connection
  • Ethernet port and BT (depending on the launch monitor.)

Before You Go

 

Irrespective of how good the Mevo+ device is, there are chances that it will develop some problems. Connectivity issues with simulator software have become one of the more common issues.

 

I hope that the guide in the above article has pointed you in the right direction for fixing your Mevo Plus not connecting to GSPro.
