VESC Tool on Mac keeps crashing on Bluetooth connect

Hoping someone can help. When I try to connect to the VESC Tool app on my Mac (Ventura 13.2.1) via bluetooth, the app crashes. However, my iPhone app connects just fine. Does anyone know how I can get connected to my Mac via bluetooth again or did I lock myself out somehow? Here is a screen recording:

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

This has been an issue for a while. The only workaround I’ve found is go to System Settings > Privacy & Security > Bluetooth. Remove VESC Tool from the list, restart the VESC Tool app, and then you should be able to connect after regranting privileges to Bluetooth.

I have to do this every time I use VESC Tool, FYI.


I wasn’t fully removing the VESC Tool from the bluetooth settings. I was only using the toggle. @TK_G 's solution worked perfectly. Thank you

Has anyone tested whether Flashing Firmware works reliably with this connection method?

Yeah it works fine for me.
