Setting Up WalkOVR

  1. Turn your WalkOVR on.
  2. Open your Bluetooth settings on your Windows Operating System.
  3. Search for active devices. Wait until it finds “WalkOVR-XXXX”
  4. Click on your WalkOVR (WalkOVR-XXXX) to connect to it. From v1.5.2 and on, the WalkOVR device name shows the modes in its name as WalkOVR(VR)-XXXX, which indicates that WalkOVR is in native VR mode rather than keyboard or gamepad


NOTE: WalkOVR Blue Led blinking frequency shows which mode is currently active. The following procedure is shared with the assumption that WalkOVR is in native VR mode. See page 15 for more information on WalkOVR modes
