UserGuide for Nano hotSPOT(blueBox)

Power supply requirements: 5V2A

Quickly start guide
1  Plug in the power supply , require 5V2A

2  Configute network for your Pi-star,

Way 1th: if there is a LAN port in NanoPi or RPi, insert RJ45 line, the routers automatically allocate the IP address, use a computer browser (must use Firefox or Chrome) to access the IP address, set up your personal information.

Way 2th: open the phone, search the WiFi "hotspot Pi-Star-setup" then join it , password is "raspberry" , use mobile browser ,visit,  add the WiFi you need in the WiFi setup column (and add a WiFi principle to your new cell phone). * This way now just support inner WiFi adapter,not support USB WiFi.

Way 3th: Add a shared WiFi on the cell phone or router, the default access WiFi:

SSID:888888-2G password: 0123456789 ,visit the dashboard as follows
iOS shares WiFi hot spots: http://pi-star.local
Other devices share WiFi: http://pi-star
Login User: pi-star ,Password :raspberry

If the domain name can not be identified, use IP tool APP like “FING” to find the IP address of the box.

3 Configute your digital radio
The default setting frequency is 433.550MHz, DMR mode, time slot 2, color code 1, and DMRid 4600000
