Using the Parker G11 Bluetooth modem (PN 366823408) will assist you in troubleshooting most of the problems. This modem connects to your smartphone using the Parker IQANgo app available for free at the Apple Store or Google Play.

The modem also allows the customer to create a connection for you or Auto Crane tech support to remotely connect to the crane using an inexpensive, 24-hour IQANconnect license which can be purchased from the IQAN store. NOTE: The remote connection only works while the customer is connected to the crane and has a cell signal for data.
