Hi, this is Helga. It's actually not possible to turn off the timer, sorry? 
Just to let you know, when I connected my BrailleNote to my iPhone, it took 
me 6 tries in order to type the pairing code. I just wanted to ask you, are 
you going to be at the Florida State Convention this weekend? Just curious! 
And if you are, I can actually help you pair your BrailleNote to your 
iPhone. What do you think about that? Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks and 
God bless! :)
P.S. Do you live in Florida? Just curious! ;)

    Does anyone know how to turn off the timer? I can never type 0000 fast 
enough! Someone could probably make lots of money if they
came up with an app that turns off the timer!

Hi Mikayla, this is Helga. I just wanted to tell you that in order to
connect your Apex to your iPad, you need to do these steps.
1. On the braillenote, go to the options menu.
2. Go to the connectivity menu.
3. Press B for bluetooth. Make sure bluetooth is turned on.
4. When the braillenote says, "Search for devices," DO NOT press
Y for yes. Instead, exit to the main menu and press T for braille
terminal. Make sure the braille terminal port is bluetooth, not
USB.
5. On the iPhone, go to settings/general/accessability/VoiceOver.
Flick right until you see Braille. Then go to Choose a Braille
Device. The iPhone should find your braillenote. When it asks for
a pin, type 0000 really fast because it's on a time limit. Then,
press the pair button and you should be good to go.
These are actually steps in order to connect the BrailleNote to the iPhone,
but I think the iPhone and the iPad are the same kind of device. Hope this
helps! Thanks and God bless!! :)
P.S. Don't forget to press the enter key when you come to the Braille
Terminal Port. Thanks again! ;)

Hi Mikayla,

I appologize in advance for this only being semi-helpful.  I believe there
is a command you first need to enter on the Apex, but I can’t remember what
that is.  Hopefully someone will answer that part.  Once you’re in the mode
to use it as a braille display, on your phone, do the following.

1. Go to settings, General, Accessibility, Voiceover, Braille.
2. Swipe right until you hear “Choose braille display”.  You will then see
your Apex listed.  Double tap on that and, I think you should be good.  I
don’t have an Apex, so I’m kind of going off the top of my head here, but as
I recall, that is the procedure.  Hopefully someone can confirm that as well
as supply the proper command to put the Apex in, for lack of a better term,
pair mode.

Ryan
