Device Overview

The GuliKit dock is equipped with various ports and connections, positioning it as the central hub of your handheld gaming setup. It’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with the device as the MicroSD card slots are discreetly designed to maintain the dock’s sleek and retro appearance.

Setting Up the GuliKit 7-in-1 Docking Station

Ensure that the dock is placed on a flat and stable surface. Any unevenness in the surface or accidental bumps can potentially affect or even damage both the dock and any of the devices connected to it. When following the steps in this section of the guide, please refer to the Device Overview for the location of each port/connection on the GuliKit 7-in-1 Docking Station.

Power Your Docking Station

First, make sure your dock is connected to a power source so that it will power all devices and peripherals connected to it. Connect it by using the USB-C AC port located at the back of the docking station (refer to Device Overview). The dock supports up to 100W charging, ideal for those lengthy gaming sessions or a quick power boost before taking your handheld on the go.

The charger is not included. Use your handheld device’s charger or consider a 100W charger for optimal charging!

Connect Display

Connect an HDMI cable between your dock and an external display, such as a TV, monitor, or projector. You may need to change the display’s input source, though most modern displays will automatically detect and switch the connection. Supporting up to 4K resolution at 60Hz, allowing for a higher quality gaming experience.

The HDMI cable is not included. Use your external display’s provided cable or consider investing in one.

Dock Your Handheld Device

The last thing to do is to simply connect your handheld gaming device to the dock using the provided USB-C cable via the USB-C Out port (see Device Overview). This connection will also charge your handheld gaming device when the dock is receiving power. Ensure that your device is securely placed within the dock by adjusting the GuliKit’s slidable cover.

At this point in the setup, you can power on your device and dive into any game on the big screen without delay. However, there’s still more to explore and set up to get the most out of your GuliKit docking station.

Windows Display Settings

Supporting up to 4K resolution and a smooth 60Hz refresh rate will transform your games into a stunning visual experience. If both your device and display support higher resolutions, we highly recommend setting them to the maximum resolution and refresh rate available. This will significantly enhance your enjoyment when docked, bringing out the best in your games’ graphics and ensuring smoother gameplay. To adjust your display settings in Windows 11:

  1. Press the Start Button (Windows logo)
  2. Type & select Display Settings in the search bar.
  3. Select the highest Display Resolution (refer to Image) and Keep Changes.
  4. Select the Advanced Display under Related Settings.
  5. Select the highest Refresh Rate option (refer to Image) and Keep Changes.

Testing Your Hardware

Testing USB-C Ports (Charging & Connection)

Supply your dock with power using the AC Adapter port. Then connect your handheld device to the GuliKit docking station via the USB-C out port, when you do this your device should start charging simply by being connected to the dock.

Some devices have multiple USB ports but only one dedicated charging port. If this is the case, not every port will supply power to the device. Please refer to your handheld product manual to figure out what each port does and ensure the correct ports are used.

Testing USB-A 3.0 Ports

With your device on and connected to the dock, plug different USB-A devices (portable storage, mouse & keyboard, etc.) into each of the respective ports. If recognised, you will typically get a notification on your connected handheld device. Some peripheral devices may even have LEDs to indicate they’re receiving power and/or connected.

Testing Ethernet Port

Ensure the ethernet cable is plugged into the dock and your internet access point (router, modem, etc). Once connected, check the handheld device to ensure it has internet access via an ethernet connection.

Testing External Display

If your display isn’t turning on or displaying your handheld device – just like some handheld devices, displays may have dedicated charging ports, meaning these ports cannot transfer data such as video output. We recommend trying different ports and referring to your handheld product manual to understand which ports are which.

Remember after connecting the devices, the display’s input source must match the method you’re using to connect the display to the device – most modern displays should do this automatically but you may be required to change it manually.
