How to pair TEXA Navigator with TEXA Diagnostic Software

Recent versions of TEXA diagnostic software (TEXA Truck 51 and TEXA Off-Highway 22) have an updated process for pairing the Navigator TXTs diagnostic adapter to the diagnostic software.

Your TEXA dealer will typically configure your software upon installation but it’s important to know how to pair the Navigator TXT because the software will lose the Bluetooth connection occasionally for a number of reasons.

TEXA has automated this procedure, previously you had to toggle the device on and enable USB and Bluetooth separately but now you just click on your Navigator TXT and TEXA configures the device for USB and Bluetooth communication.

Call J-Ball Electronics toll-free at 1-855-326-8863 any time you have questions about TEXA Diagnostic Software.

TEXA Operator Entry Selection

With the release of recent versions of TEXA Truck and Off-Highway diagnostic software, a new feature called Operator Entry comes enabled by default which causes a popup message to jump up when starting a diagnostic session.

Operator Entry allows the TEXA owner to add the names of the people using TEXA so they can be selected at the start of the diagnostic process. The Operator name will appear in printouts and reports.

TEXA Opearator Entry screen pops up when performing a diagnosis in TEXA Truck 51 and Off-Highway 22.

The popup window explains what actions need to be taken but many TEXA users confuse this with the Navigator TXT not being configured because of the Configure icon. This screen is saying the user has the option of disabling Operator selection or Configure. Disabling it is straightforward, click the button and TEXA will not prompt again.

Operator Entry management is located on the Configuration Wizard screen.

To add Operator names click the Configure button on the popup window, TEXA loads the Configuration Wizard so Operator names can be managed in the bottom left corner of the screen. Click the + button to add Operators.

Enter the name of as many TEXA operators as needed.

Enter the Operator name and click the green check mark.

It's possible to add multiple Operator names to TEXA, these names will be displayed on printouts and reports.

As many Operators names as needed may be entered. When finished entering operators click the arrow at the bottom right corner of the screen then complete the Configuration Wizard for your diagnostic adapter.

When performing a diagnosis the Operator Entry dropdown menu allows the selection of the appropriate operator name.

When performing a diagnosis TEXA now presents a list of Operators to choose from.

To enable Operator Entry click the Settings icon at the top of the screen.

If Operator Entry has been disabled and you want to enable it, click the settings icon at the top of the screen.

Click the User Preferences icon and scroll down then check the Enable operator entry checkbox.

Click the User Preferences icon at the bottom of the screen then scroll down to Enable operator entry and check the box.

If you have any questions or need further assistance with Operator Entry or any other TEXA issue please call J-Ball Electronics toll-free at 1-855-326-8863.
