Connecting your XB8000 to your iOS device via WiFi requires a few simple steps. Power up your XB8000 device. Make sure it is functioning and indicating all is ok- with its green status light.
First make sure that the settings on the WiFi on the iOS device are set to allow for local network connections. https://support.vespermarine.com/hc/en-us/articles/360004055255-Resolve-WatchMate-connection-issues-on-iOS14
