How can I install applications to my M100?

Install via Vuzix App Store

If the application you wish to install is on our App Store, log in to the app store and register your device. From there, any of the application that you add to your app store library will be installed to your M100 once it has an internet connection. To enable OTA, go to the App Manager in the Setting application and enable it. You can also, from this menu, select the method the M100 will choose to determine when it updates going forward. 

Install via Vuzix Smart Glasses System File Manager

You can use our Smart Glasses System File Manager to load APKs directly to the M100. You can download and install System File Manager from here.

Install via ADB

If you are familiar with ADB (Android Debug Bridge), using commands in that protocol is the simplest and most direct way of loading an application to the device via USB. You’ll need ADB to be installed (you can follow this tutorial), and then simply issue the command ‘adb install <filename>.apk’ from within the directory that contains the apk in a Command Prompt window.

Install from M100 Filesystem

You can also load applications directly to the filesystem of the M100 either by downloading from a URL linking directly to the application, or via USB (to the Download directory). You can then install the APK from the Downloads application on the M100. You will need to enable the installation of applications from unknown sources to do this. To do so, go to the Security area in the Settings application and enable the “Unknown sources” option.

Is it possible to add additional voice commands?

Yes, additional grammars can be added to our voice engine for a cost – [cost] per grammar. Vuzix will create the additional grammars for you which can then be installed on the device. It is not possible for end users to add additional grammars independently.

What are the options for screencasting from the M100?

Screencasting is not officially supported in the current version of Android (4.0.4 – Ice Cream Sandwich) being used on the M100. The best option which exists today is utilizing ADB over the built in USB micro port and an application such as Droid@Screen.
