"The Powered Up Move Hub did not come with any operation instructions and there are no official ones available online that I could find. We had to search around online for reviewers' comments to figure out how to pair the hub with the remote (88010). Weirdly, there ARE instructions provided illustrating how to install the batteries, in case you don't know how a screwdriver works.
To pair the hub with the remote, press both the green button on the hub and the green button on the remote simultaneously. Just a press, not a hold. This did not seem to work at first but some combination of timing adjustments did eventually get it connected. After it connected the first time, it easily connected every time after that.
To switch the A/B controls on the remote from controlling the A/B motors to controlling the C/D ports, press the green button on the remote. We were able to get the LED lights working this way, and the +/- buttons adjust the brightness of the lights. Once the lights are on, you can press the green button on the remote again to switch back to operating the motors, so you can drive with the lights on.
Once we figured all this out (this info should have been provided with purchase!) we were happy to find that the hub and remote work great together and run exactly as we hoped they would. Excited to see what the kids come up with!"
