Distance when in group intercall
The limit is around 1200m in total in best situation. The more you connect, the less the overall distance.
Take a look at underneath situations to understand the maximum distance on bluetooth.
Stay in line of sight
It is important to understand that Bluetooth only works in line of sight. Meaning you have to see the other intercom without any object blocking it’s way. Even turning your head is an obstacle for bluetooth. The less obstacle you have the more distance the system can cover up to 1200m.
* Bleutooth is a 2,4 Ghz weak signal. It is impossible to go thru water, waves, trees or any other obstacle blocking the direct signal
Max distance on land
When using your advance on land. The higher you will stand on a hill or cliff the more distance you will have up to 1000m or more. When both intercoms are on ground floor. The distance will be between 800-1000m.
Max distance on water
When both riders are on the water the distance will be between 300-800m. When the one of the riders is close to the water the distance will be 100-300m.
*All signals or antenna close to the water will make any signal weaker.
POSITION ADVANCE INTERCOM HIGH ON BODY
Placing the intercom higher on the body increases the signal and distance. We always recommend to use the highest mounting position available. If the student goes low to the water with the intercom, signal strength will go down and you loose distance. When you submerge the intercom under water (with the arm mount for example) connection will be blocked, because the intercom is not in line of sight.
Easy cleaning and maintenance
Make sure you clean and rinse your headsets with fresh water every day after using. Your device is being used in harsh conditions (UV sunlight, warmth, cold, moist, salt, water and sand). Before your rinse the headsets. Take of the mic sponge. After rinsing your equipment, dry all helmet pads and mic with towel before taking the intercom out. Place all wet headsets and accessories in a well ventilated dry room. Make sure they dry as much as possible (don’t dry in direct sunlight). Always take the intercoms out of the case and keep them away from any moist coming from other equipment. Make sure your equipment is dry inside when installing.
