3 OR 4 WAY COMMUNICATION:

You need a MASTER device to communicate with more than two people.

COMPATIBILITY:

Bb 3.0 devices do not connect to any other prior model BbTALKIN devices but each otherThey will NOT work with BbTALKIN Advance Units, BbSPEAKER or BbRADIO.

Only the Standard Unit can pair to your cell phone.  The Standard Unit does not work with with bluetooth speakers, smart watches, wireless ear buds, VHF radios, etc. 

You cannot pair the Master Unit to any cell phone or external Bluetooth product.  You cannot pair a Master Unit with another Master Unit.  

You can plug your Standard Unit directly into a stereo or camera using a 3.5 jack.


DISTANCE:

The Bluetooth built into our devices have significantly longer range than normal Bluetooth devices.  Your normal Bluetooth device range is only 20-25 meters.  In the optimal situation, our devices’ Bluetooth range is 1000 meters (1 km) for a two-way communication.  The more devices you add, the less range you will achieve.

When using our devices in the water, if your body is submerged and the device is close to the water, your range will be shorter until you get on plane.  If the antenna gets close to the water, the signal will be very weak.  When using electronics on the water, any signal will be very weak when close to the water.

If your device becomes completely submerged, you have 20 seconds to bring the unit back up out of the water.

OUT OF RANGE:

When you start to go out of range, you will start to hear electronic static interference.  Once you get back closer together, this noise will go away.
