How to Connect GSOC to Your PC via Bluetooth

GSOC does not have a built-in Bluetooth adapter, thus users need to prepare a USB Bluetooth adapter first. The recommended model is CSR8510 A10.

GSOC Settings:
Plug the USB Bluetooth adapter to any USB port of GSOC.
Click the connecting icon showing on the screen (the icon content is OFF LINE/G90 ONLINE/CAT ONLINE ) to pop up Bluetooth setting interface.


1. Turn on Bluetooth
2. Click SCAN to find the Bluetooth device list.
3. Click Connect/Disconnect button in the device list to connect/disconnect.
Note: For the first time connection, you need to allow the connection on you PC.

PC Setting:
Operating system Windows 10 x64, PC is with built-in Bluetooth.
1. Settings ->Bluetooth & other devices -> Turn on Bluetooth function


2. Settings ->Bluetooth & other devices -> More Bluetooth options


✔ Allow Bluetooth devices to find this PC
✔Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect

3. Click COM Ports


The GSOC BT ‘Serial Port’ is the correct port (COM8 in the image above).

Connecting Software:

At present Ham Radio Deluxe does not support Bluetooth port, we recommend you use flrig

1. Software Settings & Ports

    OK, I have full remote CAT control and audio to and from my Xiegu G90 using Bluetooth. This is a “proof of concept” and I am already building a better, less complex, solution but for anyone interested, here is my quick write-up on my blog:

    How about Xiegu updating thE gsoc firmware and adding built-in blue-tooth and a WHOLE lot of additional improvements. The board is well capable. Best Regards.

    I am working on adding Bluetooth support (CAT serial commands and two-way Audio) to the G90. CAT is working. I have a few cables to make up but am confident to get audio working as well. I am using existing available modules. It may be that the same solution will work for the X5105. It won’t work with the X108G as it has a USB not a 3.5mm serial port. I have heard the X6100 will come with BlurTooth already built-in and so would not need this.
