πŸ’‘ Vibe Tap's functions and limitations

  • Vibe Tap can only cast to Vibe Boards, not other devices.

  • The Tap's USB-C port requires a device with a USB-C port that supports DisplayPort (DP) protocol.

  • If your device only has an HDMI port, you will need an HDMI to USB-C Adapter for viewing only. Touchback is not supported via HDMI.
    Here is the recommended device for HDMI connection.

How to Pair the Vibe Tap to your Vibe Board

  1. Plug the Vibe Tap into port "1. USB-C" or "2. USB-C" on your Vibe board. Your board will detect Vibe Tap and complete pairing.

    If pairing fails, unplug and replug the Vibe Tap to try pairing again.

  2. After the Vibe Tap completes pairing with your board, unplug it from your board and plug it into the USB-C port of your PC, which supports the DisplayPort protocol.

  3. Vibe Tap will automatically match the last paired board. The light will blink white during pairing.

  4. Wait for your board to confirm the successful pairing. The Vibe Tap light will be solid white when connected.

  5. Press the Vibe Tap button to begin casting your PC screen to the board. The light will turn green when casting is successful.

    • You can switch between "Mirror" and "Extend" display modes from your PC.

    • Window PC: Press the Windows logo key + P. More details.

    • MacBook: Please follow this article.

πŸ’‘ Note:

  • If you want to cast to the last paired board again, just plug Vibe Tap directly into your PC without re-pairing.

  • To pair a new board, long press the Tap button for 3 seconds to forget, then follow the pairing steps again.

Reset the Vibe Tap

  • There is a Reset option in the Vibe Tap settings when you plug the Vibe Tap into your board. Resetting and re-pairing sometimes can resolve some pairing failure issues

  • If your Vibe Tap fails to pair with your Vibe board, please follow the steps below to reset your Vibe Tap via your PC:

    1. Connect the Vibe Tap to your PC.

    2. Wait for the light on the Vibe Tap to transition from flashing to steady (either white or red).

    3. Press and hold the Tap button for more than 3 seconds until the light flashes white. This indicates a successful reset.

    4. Afterward, proceed to click on "Pair" on the Vibe board and check if it successfully connects.

ISSUE: Vibe Tap does not communicate with the board when plugged into a computer

  1. Connect the Vibe Tap back to the Vibe Board and tap the up caret on the launch bar

  2. Tap on the blue BlueTooth circle to turn off BlueTooth. Wait 5 seconds and press to turn it back on.

  3. Verify that a message stating Tap is connecting/pairing shows on the board
