Select the ‘Pair’ button, once you have chosen your Robot.
The Robot icon will turn orange and a ‘Connecting to:’ message will appear while the Robot is connecting.
Once the 123 Robot is connected the Robot icon will turn green. The message in the window will say ‘Connected to:’ and list the name of the Robot that is connected to Web-based VEXcode 123.
Underneath the 'Connected to:' message, there is an icon that displays the battery level of the 123 Robot.
