    1. And use it as a Bluetooth speaker. 

    2. Or, connect to external Bluetooth speakers or headphones. 

    Find out in the video how to turn it into Bluetooth speakers and how to connect it to external Bluetooth speakers or headphones. 

  • How to have a smooth wireless casting experience with GV1?
  • It depends on the internet service bandwidth provided by the Wi-Fi router as well as how many competing wireless devices in the environment. If stuttering occurs during projection, please check if Wi-Fi is working properly or it is combusted. 

    GV1 has both 2.4G and 5G channels. We'd recommend switching both your home Wi-Fi router and GV1 to 5G channel for smoother connections.

  • What is the projection distance and image size?
  • You can project an 80 inch screen at 7.6 ft (230cm); 100 inch screen at 9.5 ft (288cm). For more details please refer to the user manual.

  • Can it enable wireless projection in WiFi-less environment?
  • Besides WLAN mode, it also offers 2 types of wireless projection: 

    1. Use Mobile as the Wifi Hotspot: Turn on Wi-fi Hotspot on your iPhone or Android phone, connect GV1 to it and start the wireless projection.  

    2. Use GV1 as the Wifi Hotspot: Turn the Wifi Hotspot on GV1 and connect your mobile to it and start the wireless projection. To note, your mobile won't be able to connect to the external network via your 4G cellular network and only can stream pictures or video stored in your mobile to GV1. 

Check the compatibility between your devices and the media platforms to stream in ways that work for you!
