Is anyone using a Samsung Tab S2 with a Disto E7100i? I just got the E7100i to use with Room Planner and I can not get them to play together. The Disto will pair with the S2 and will work with Disto sketch but not with Room Planner. The device shows up in room planner in the measuring device list but when I click on it to activate it nothing happens. I have unpaired & re paired several times, uninstalled Disto sketch, reinstalled Room Planner, rebooted the tablet and still no results. Spent and hour on the phone with Chief tech support and still not working.


The attached video clip shows what is(n't) happening


Any suggestions?

Hi All,

If you seem to be having issues pairing your Leica device with Room Planner, start by restarting the iPad. Once this has been done, do NOT pair the device within the iPads Bluetooth Settings section. Go directly into Room Planner, tap on the Settings (Cog) wheel, and go down to Bluetooth Measuring Devices. Your Leica device should now appear here. Tap on it to pair the two devices. If paired, you will see an orange checkmark appear.

If you continue to have trouble, please give our support team a call. We can be reached at (208) 665-3674 or toll-free at (800) 482-4433.

Thank you.

      Does anybody know why room planner can't connect to the Leica d810 through Bluetooth?
      It is working fine with the Disto Sketch and Orthographic!

      I can't connect my Leica D110 to use room planner app on an IPad Air 2, just purchased. iPad Bluetooth won't recognize it, but it's is recognized by the Disto app, but room planner won't pick it up. I just spent a LOT of money and requirements says this is supported device, what's up?

      Stumbled across this looking for a different article on the Chief Architect site and thought it could help people here.

      KB-02905: Using a Bluetooth Measuring Device with Room Planner
    • By Ridge_Runner
      I don't want to open a Pandora's Box and the preference war between Apple vs. everyone else. However, my cell phone is in the process of dying and I have to replace it. In trying to think ahead, I am considering both the iPhone 6s Plus (5.5" screen) and the Galaxy S6 (5.7" screen).
      My primary concern is the practical use of Room Planner on a cell phone and interfacing with a Bluetooth laser, especially the E7100i that I just recently bought for this purpose. Will they communicate effectively?
      Second question is, will Room Planner functionally work on a cell phone for as-builts with its smaller screen? Is it a waste of time and I should go the tablet route (more money of course since I still have to upgrade my cell phone)?
      Any input would be appreciated. I will post this on the ChiefTalk forum also.
      Thanks, Mike
