I just bought condor mini
key cutter for one month, and already update to latest firmware, v2.1.1. Volvo HU56 thickness setting wrongly, it should be 2.5mm, and cutting thickness should be 1mm. volvo v40 key eats like 0.6 or more mm deeper than it should. it ate the clamp!!! and not very accurate.
About Volvo HU56R condor machine database the key thickness is 3mm and cutting depth is 1.25mm
but if fact,users key is different, thickness is 2.5mm and cutting depth is 1mm.
so users can use define key data first ,named ‘HU56R-1_U’,later Xhorse will find a better solution.
1.connect PC to Condor machine
2.use attached software, sync’HU56R-1_U’ to condor xc-mini
key cutting machine
3.select ‘cut by bitting’—enter ‘HU56R’ you will find HU56R-1_U,then cutting.
Note: Contact Xhorse engineer to get the define key data, skype: Xhorse-Support2.

and condor xc-mini, but i cannot PAIR the device, i cannot find any bluetooth setting on xhorse condor, how do i connect? no info in user manual.
Solution from Xhorse expert:
You don’t need to do anything on condor mini
. Activate Bluetooth on Laptop/Tablet or Smartphone and press the “search for machine” button in Insta-code and it will pair with Condor Mini.
