*Note- The app discussed below uses the Raptor App. We encourage you to switch to the One-Boat Network App for the most current app for your Raptor.
The Raptor app can be used to control the Raptor using a device that is paired to the Raptor with a Bluetooth connection. Before pairing the device with the Raptor, the app should first be successfully downloaded. You can confirm that the app was successfully downloaded by opening it on your device. Once confirmed, close the app to begin the pairing process.

Pairing a Device with a Single Raptor
The Raptor App can be used to control the Raptor using a device that is paired to the Raptor with a Bluetooth connection. Before pairing the device with the Raptor, the Raptor App should first be successfully downloaded. You can confirm that the app was successfully downloaded by opening it on your device. Once confirmed, close the App to begin the pairing process.
- On the device you intend to pair with the Raptor, turn Bluetooth “on” and keep your device on that screen.
- Press the Pair button on the Indicator Panel located on the Raptor Pump Assembly. The PAIR/Maintenance LED will begin to flash blue. The Raptor will go into Pairing Mode for 30 seconds.
- If on an Android device, select the Scan button to begin the process on your device. On an iOS device, as soon as the Bluetooth menu is opened, the scan starts automatically. The Raptor will appear on the list of available devices once it is recognized by the device.
- Select the Raptor from the list of available devices. This will pair the Raptor to the device. Once you hear the beeps, the Raptor is successfully paired.
- In order for the device and your Raptor to stay connected, Bluetooth needs to remain "on". Once the device is paired with the Raptor, the device will connect and begin communicating with each other. When the Raptor is paired to the device and communicating with it, the Raptor App will automatically recognize that the Raptor is paired.
- If the pair is unsuccessful, repeat the process.
Pairing a Device with Two Raptors
In order for the Raptor App to pair two Raptors to the device, the Raptors first need to be paired together. To learn how to pair two Raptors together, read the "Pairing Two Raptors and Programming the Mounting Location" section of the Raptor Manual. Once the Raptors are paired together, follow the directions for "Pairing a Device with a Single Raptor". Only one Raptor needs to be paired with the device where the Raptor App is installed.
Pairing your Raptors and Program the Mounting Location
Every Raptor comes direct from the factory with a Remote already paired to the Raptor. When installing two Raptors, it will first be necessary to clear all devices from both Raptor networks. To clear the pairing in each Raptor, follow the instructions in the "Clearing Paired Remotes or Devices from the Raptor" section of the Owner's Manual. Once both Raptor networks are cleared, the Raptors can then be paired together. The clear Raptor networks will allow the system to complete an automated process during pairing that will designate the Port and Starboard positions of the two Raptors as installed on the boat. The process below is used to pair the Raptors together, and to designate which side of the boat that each Raptor is installed on. Once complete, the Raptor remotes will need to be re-paired to the dual Raptor system. Please see the "Pairing a Remote to Two Raptors" section of this manual to pair a remote. Additional Bluetooth enabled devices may now be added to the One Boat Network such as a Humminbird fish finder, a Trolling Motor with Advanced GPS Navigation, and a device such as a smartphone or tablet.
- Press the Pair button on the Indicator Panel on one of the Raptors. The PAIR/Maintenance LED will begin to flash blue. Immediately follow this step on the second Raptor.
- The Raptors are in Pairing Mode and will search for each other for 30 seconds. If they do not Pair after 30 seconds, an error tone will sound signaling that the Pairing has timed out. If this occurs, start the process again.
- If the Raptors successfully Pair, a confirmation tone with three fast beeps will occur. At this point, the Raptors have successfully paired, and now need to be programmed to designate the Port or Starboard locations. This process will automatically begin when two Raptors have successfully paired to each other.
- The Mode Indicator LED will turn green on both Raptors. On the Indicator Panel of the Starboard Raptor, press the Up button. The Raptor will accept the selection. The Mode LED of the Raptor on the Port side will flash red and then the LEDs on both Raptors will turn off. Now the Raptors are successfully Paired together and know their mounted position.
