The first time you connect to Orca Core
Orca will pair your Core to your account the first time you connect. To do so:
Power on your Core
Open the Orca app and keep it close to your Core
A popup will appear within 30 seconds, asking to pair the Core
Confirm the pairing
Connecting to Orca Core after pairing
Orca will automatically connect to your Core when it is within range. When connected, a small toast on the top of the screen will notify you.
To view the status of your Core, open Main Menu > My Boat.
The different connection modes
Orca can connect to a Core via three different modes.
Bluetooth – a direct connection to Core. The recommended method for most boaters
WiFi – a direct connection to Core. Recommended for boaters who need a faster sensor update rate than Bluetooth offers. Is required for syncing trips and updating the Core
WiFi Link – a WiFi connection via an external WiFi router. Recommended if you have a high-performance WiFi router onboard and want your device to stay connected to the WiFi router while having a fast update rate.
