-  - Make sure that your module is powered ​and detected by your computer +  - Turn on the ActPack 
-  - Use the latest ​Plan 3.0 to do this, some versions of Plan 3.0 have a known bug in the config code+  - Pair and connect the ActPack Bluetooth device to your computer. Note the Bluetooth post number (e.g. COM8) 
-  - Using the "​Bluetooth Config"​ window, connect to the right COM port. +  - Launch ​Plan 4.0

-  - Click on "GUI". You'll see quick Orange flashes every 500ms. Wait for the progress bar to be complete. +  - Within 60s (or 15s if the module has already been programmed) do the following steps: 
-  - Click on "Reboot"+    - Select the desired serial ​port 
 +    - Click ''​Connect''​ (you might be asked to pair again)  
 +    - Notice the green LED on the Bluetooth device blinking at 2Hz 
 +    - Click ''​Set mode: Cmd''​

-At this point you can re-open the COM port and start using the GUI. Power cycling is not typically needed. Windows might keep listing your module as an RBNT-xxxx for a little while, but it will eventually refresh it to be FlexSEA-xxxx. All other computers should see it as FlexSEA-xxxx almost immediately.+At this pointyou can re-open the COM port and start using the GUI. Power-cycling is not typically needed.
