If you currently are using the latest drivers, make sure your bluetooth connection is not attempting to connect to a Quantum Arm. Check the "FARO Bluetooth Connection Setup" located under the Start Menu > Programs > FARO. Uncheck any devices that you are not connecting to.
This issue will typically arise if a USB arm is connected directly to the software and the software is also attempting to an arm via Bluetooth.
