Distance and Bluetooth rules
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.
GET WITH BBTALKIN ADVANCE AS HIGH AS POSSIBLE
Place your device as high as possible for best quality in connection. Standing on a dune or cliff gives you the best result (1600m). The lower you are to the ground the less distance you wil have. This is the first rule for getting as much distance as possible. If you are standing on the beach you will never have the maximum possible distance.
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.
Pairing 3-6p intercoms
3 PEOPLE OR 4 PEOPLE CONNECTED?
The limit is 1200m in total. When you divide the distance per intercom you will have less distance the more you attach. 1200:3=400 and 1200:4=300m. It seems to vary between 100m and 500m when systems are close. It also depends on how you link your BbTalkin intercoms. Make sure you stay in line of the connection you made as shown on the picture hen connecting 6p.
6-WAY LINKING OPTIONS
Since we have the advance upgraded. It’s even possible to add up to 6 total in the group conversation. Remember to check how your devices are connected and how you maintain the best connection. Take notice from the fact you are now dividing 1200m over 6 intercoms. 1200/6=200m will be your max distance between users.
Pairing with smartphone or cam
SMARTPHONE CONNECTION: VIDEO RECORD, PLAY MUSIC, TAKE PHONE CALL OR VIDEO CHAT
Connect your smartphone to your Advance intercom and make it interact with your smartphone. Take a call, listen to music, make a video with the BbCam App downloaded from the apple store or Google. It’s even possible to make a video call to someone that is at home behind a computer. In this situation you can train your riders from anywhere in the world or show your friends your new trick in real time.
BBTALKIN PAIRS WITH CAMERA’S THAT SUPPORTS BLUETOOTH CONNECTION
When connected with your smartphone you are able to connect max 3 advance intercoms in the group. After this, it’s not recommended to use these additional functions. You can also use any camera that has bluetooth microphone option available. A good example is the Garmin sports camera that has these function. Unfortunately GoPro Hero does not support bluetooth connected microphones and thus we are not able to pair with GoPro.
Keep it clean!
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.
