Tried searching the forum but didn't find any references to SoftRF:
https://github.com/lyusupov/SoftRF/wiki/Prime-Edition-MkII
and it's use with LK8000.
Can it be connected to my kobo?
Has anybody used it with LK8000?
Any advice/help very much appreciated!

Got my SoftRF, updated firmware OK, and trying to connect it to LK8000.
What is the correct Port number? I have seen both 10110 and 4353 shown?
Do I have to also wi-fi pair my kobo with SoftRF?
Apologies for dumb questions...

later edit:
managed to get it connected using port number 10110, to my android phone LK. My error was a wrong setting for NMEA output in SoftRF (it should be UDP, not as I had it Serial )
I guess I will have to change the password to prevent LK picking up other devices with 12345678 password? :-)

Still struggling though with Kobo...any attempts to join the wi-fi don't work ???

Thank you!
I understand first part (i.e. SoftRF wi-fi has no internet connection).
The rest of it is completely foreign lingo to me :-) I am afraid.
Sounds like I will have to get some young person to explain it to me ...
I will try to google tethering and the like ...
At least you have confirmed that it is not me doing something wrong - thank you!

later edit:

I can connect kobo to wi-fi hotspot on my phone using SoftRF-xxxxxx and default password 12345678 no problem (thanks to google search).

Still a bit vague about the next step...
happy experimenting :-)

Waited for 30 minutes, tried connecting to SoftRF (after happily connecting to tethered hotspot) with no success.
Installed the addon from mobileread forum, with no success.
It's a shame, because I like (and prefer) my kobos...
