Step 3: Allow location services and connect with Bluetooth

You must allow location services to use Nix apps. This is a limitation directly from Google and Apple and not under our control. Unfortunately if you disable location services, Bluetooth will not work and you will not be able to connect your device.

Once location services are turned on, make sure your phone’s Bluetooth is turned on as well. After the introduction screens within the Nix toolkit app, select the crossed out diamond symbol in the top right corner and choose your Spectro 2 from the list of available devices to connect.

Step 4: Start scanning!

Place your Spectro 2 flat on any surface and start scanning. Remember to keep the device flush with the surface for accurate results.
