    Help for getting XT 8050 into connection mode

    I posted in the drivetrain forum but didn't get any answers so thought I'd try here too.

    I need a bit of help on how to get the XT di2 into bluetooth connection mode. Pressing the mode button on the display unit for less than a second does nothing and holding it longer it goes into shift adjustment mode. Any tricks out there?

    I have ultegra R8050 and you just press the button quickly and it just wakes up the system. I'm assuming it is the same on XT but haven't done it. Hope that helps. Also make sure you're in the app when trying to connect vs just your phone's bluetooth system. I don't have it handy but I thought you needed to be in the app to connect.

    Thanks bikeguy - I was getting worried my question my be composted before someone replied.

    I've given it a quick press (and it does indeed wake up), but may have been holding down the button too long. Regardless, I never saw the system display a capital C, which appears to be the indicator that it is broadcasting a blue tooth signal. Does your unit show a C, or does it connect regardless?

    Hmm. Mine is the road version and just has the A junction box but I found a video for you which shows someone doing it. If that doesn’t help you may want to unplug the display from the system to reset it and try again.

    Mine shows "c" before it gets to the shift adjustment mode.
