Go to your Google Play or Apple APP store and search APP name “OSOYOO imitation driving”, Download the APP as following and install it in your smart phone.
How to play:
Power on the robot, and open APP.
1)Click BT Search Button to connect APP to HC02 device
2)Click Engine Switch to start/stop the car
3)Click Speed +/- button to accelerate or reduce speed
4)Rotate the mobile phone to change direction(steering wheel will rotate while you are turning the phone).
5)click Gear button to change gear to Forward or Backward direction.
6)press F1 to Shift to left way, F5 to shift to right way, F3 to make clockwise rotation, F4 to make count clockwise rotation.
