SnakeByte Navigational Controller
« on: 05:19 PM - 05/25/18 »
The SnakeByte Navigational Controller doesn't respond when plugged in with the Xim Apex but works when it is used with the Xim 4. is it possible to have a firmware upgrade for this type of navigational controller to work?

Welcome to the community. Are you using our Beta (as you are posting in the Beta section does that mean you are using it)? If not, can you please try that out?: http://xim.tech/beta

It's strange that it's working on XIM4 and not XIM APEX. Are you followed the Nav hookup sequence and port usage in the instructional video?

Yes, I followed the NAV hook up sequence and the SnakeByte NAV is completely unusable but it is powered on hence the blinking light. Then I hooked everything up accordingly; mouse in port 1, NAV in port 2, Xbox controller in port 3 and I plug in the xim apex. Once the Apex is plug in to booted up the xbox contoller and the mouse do not power on.

What if you plug the Nav in after everything has started up?

They both power off? Is this device wired only or does it have wireless Bluetooth capability?

yes both controller and mouse power off. The nav doesnt hold charge so it must be use wired.

Ok, sorry, but, there appears to have been a regression with this controller. As it causes a white light crash, we are going to have to pick one up and debug it.

I have the same problem. To get the nav to work you have to plug the nav in after the apex is powered up with mouse and controller attached. Otherwise I donít get any power to my controller and nav goes into charge mode. Had it since day one

We have this SnakeByte controller on order to understand why it's making XIM APEX crash.
