GranBoard Bluetooth soft-tip dart board.
Hi, I never gotten to post a few videos of the GRANBOARD Dart board for soft tip practicing at home.

I started playing darts about 8 months ago and fell in love with the electronic dart-boards by DartsLive and right off the bat I purchased a 100S made by Dartslive. Since that board replicated the sounds that was like the machines available at our local bar. It was great to use.

An issue with that board was it was not the same, it was great for practice but it just wasn't the same as going out to play with some friends and as well there were no "global" system installed at home.


Since then GRANBOARD was developed and videos were popping out and I thought I had to have it as it wirelessly connects to my iPad or iPhone (Android compatible as well) and I was able to have a screen more similar than the crappy screen that was attached to the 100S.

I have then set the board up and played, it was a great tool for gatherings at home since it introduces a lot of people to the game and it was extremely easy to pick up and not as intimidating as a steel-tip board. Has to do with a pretty screen, sounds and easy to learn without doing much calculations like the old fashion way. (This was how I picked up playing darts as well)

From what I have gathered, GRANBOARD now was global play and you can actually connect with friends to play but I don't have a friend that has installed theirs yet so I am just settling with practicing and using it when having friends over.

Setting up an account was not easy as I did not speak Japanese nor can I read it, but ended up getting some help from a Japanese friend. (Since then in the GranBoard thread of this forum there is a translation picture which will tell you how to set it up)


I have attached links to some REALLY REALLY CRAPPY videos filmed by yours truly on an iPhone at 5 am..... just to show the interface of the iPad.


If you guys have any questions please feel free to ask and I'll provide answers to the best of my ability.

Cheers

Jeff

I hope i could easily connect the board to get the bluetooth signal in order to developp other application. Could you tell me if the Boardname appears on your phone when you make a scan of available bluetooth material ?


could you tell me if the noise (when darts hit the board) is better with GRANBOARD or with DARTSLIVE100s ?

Thanks JMK, that's nice to have an insight, +1 for your efforts. The board does look very nice and neat which is good. I think its great to have a link up option too, will be nice when they have some English software. Cheers! Guests cannot see images in the messages.

The granboard is actually quieter in receiving the dart compared to the 100S!

Also for bluetooth signal, I actually NEVER paired it, seems like it does it itself when I turn on the app and the board... so it must have the API already installed to the app.

I hope for someone to develop open-source for it Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Anyone have any idea to view the rejected IDs? I have accidentally rejected my friends's request sent to me.

It seems very good, both me and the other half have been hammering it every day for the past week and no issues so far.

Plus you can buy all the spares for it which I think is one of the features that sets this board out from the rest, they even have videos showing how to disassemble the board and replace the individual components which I find amazing that an electronics company advocating the user taking apart their product.

Yeah it would be useful if they had something like that, you could try contacting them on Facebook if they have a page and may try google translate to send them a message.

Had a GranBoard for a few months and love it. Problems with the Android APP since my Nexus 7 upgraded the O/S, but great news on the GranBoard Facebook page. Rewritten app released end of May with English language support. New features planned in regular updates. https://www.facebook.com/granboard.official
