Default G4/G5 Bluetooth

I'm trying to find a bluetooth earpiece/receiver that will pair with the G4/G5, but not think it's getting a phone call every time a transmission comes through.

What are other folks using for bluetooth earphones?

I picked up a pair of these a while back for about $30 just to see if I could get the BT working. It works .. one negative thing is that there is a fixed voice announcement at the start of every voice call advising a call is coming in (I believe this is a standard thing for all devices).

I just picked up one of these from Amazon. Easily paired. Sound quality is very good with no extra unwanted noises. Works perfectly, highly recommended. I have been in search of a decent BT receiver, this is it!

Default Bluetooth Speakers

Has anyone had any luck hooking up a bluetooth speaker to the G4? I turn on Bluetooth, and when I search for the speaker, it never comes up... The only was for it to come up is going thru the "Earpiece" menu...

Once I pair it via the earpiece menu, it still doesn't play properly.

Any feedback?

You can plug any active speakers (amplified) to this bluetooth below or even connect it to your stereo.
It works with G4/G5. I have one here and tested fine. No beeps either.

The pager gives the initiate call signal, for each received transmission. Now what audio signal your BT speaker/earpiece gives is another matter.

Does the speaker support 2.0/2.1? If it is BT 4.0, it will not work.

The G4 won't do BT 4.0? my G5 does. I've used 2 different BT earphones Jabra classic* and a higher priced brand with horrible annoying "incoming call" announcements that I got rid of. Both were 4.0 and worked. Unication David said in another post that 4.0 is back compatible, you don't need to look for just a 2.0/2.1. Maybe G4 is different?

@ryolsen8 Did you try making the pager VISIBLE? you click the lower right hand button, scroll to Function Status/select that and then scroll to BT DEVICE make sure it's ON. Earphone shows off. PUSHING SET* below takes it to a new BT DETAIL screen where you push "visible" and make the Pager visible to try and pair it UP for a 2:00 minute timeframe. It counts down/shows Connected device there. This is the G5 but I'm guessing G4 is the same.

I went through a lot of Bluetooth headsets and speakers to find ones that worked without the annoying beeps, blips, and bloops.

This JBL waterproof speaker is the best one that I found for use in my truck:

This is a less expensive speaker that is not as loud as the JBL:
http://amzn.to/2ui0WYn

This is some headphones that work well for me:
http://amzn.to/2te3BwS

All used with the G5. Unfortunately, the G5 does not work well with the bluetooth system in my car. You also get the annoying beeps and announcements. I will probably buy another JBL speaker for use in the car since it does work very well with loud volume in the truck.

Hope this helps.

Default Don't work

Neither the JBL or the Senso work with the G5 (I have both). The JBL won't even connect, and the Senso give you that annoying beep=beep-beep that makes you miss the first part of every transmission...

Still looking for a BT update...

Thanks,

Bill

Default Unication B/T - G4/G5

I use what one other person in here recommended

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's pretty good, kind of cheap but good battery life. There seems to be several different versions of this by different names on Amazon. I still hear some "tubish" sounding transmissions with this just like I do with my other BT headphones and Jabra earphone. I can only assume this is the G5 doing it and the way it handles quick BT transmission, one fast call after another? Anyone else hear this? BUT there are NO tones at all with this, just very faint click sounds in the background. Works well. It's small, the size of a small cellphone so it's not pain. I hook my regular SONY headphones up to it and listen at night. Ahh.. .what HE said... right above me. ;0)
