Scannermaster doesn't provide much info on this other than it is not returnable. Anybody using this before someone shells out $35 plus shipping?

Default BT for G4/G5

That one for Unication by ScannerMaster has A beep. I remember someone saying so after we all discussed this last time. He said it does have a tone... but it's a short one. The quote is in the search box somewhere.

I just received the G5 and want to use my Bluetooth with this unit. Could someone please let me know how to set up the G5 to pair.
Thanks Ed

Assuming the menu is the same as the G4, on the Function Status menu, turn on BT Device and Earphone.

Is your speaker/headset/earpiece BT 3.1, or earlier, compatible? The G4, and I presume the G5, will not pair with BT 4.0 and newer.

Hello Ed
G5 and G4 are identical except for the dual band on the G5. Bluetooth yes Krokus explained above will not pair to newer BT devices and beware of the beeping and announcing voice some devices do. Each transmission might start with it and that will get old fast.
Some bt devices work better than others.

I am searching for a BT ear piece to pair with G5. The Plantronics M50 is discontinued. I want one without all the ding and dongs before a transmission.
Thanks Ed

Phil,

How are you mounting the JBL Flip 3 in your vehicle?

I am using the Docooler 2 in 1 Bluetooth receiver, and am getting frequent disconnects. The receiver is sitting right next to the G4, and is plugged into usb for a constant charge. Is there a setting to change in pps to keep it from disconnecting, or is it just the receiver issue itself ?

I am also hearing a humming sound under the audio !! I tried it out on my Broadcastify Phoenix Police feed, and was hearing a bad humming with the audio.

That is a "feature" of the pager. It treats every received bit as a new phone call, which is to try and save battery life. I have asked if there is a way to have that user defined.

Default Bluetooth for G4/G5 pager?

@MsWells ... I noticed some of the reviews from the Docooler BT transceiver saying they got frequent dropouts. After having mine for awhile it started doing that with a loud static/clicking sound. Trying to restart it to connect I would get a loud phone call ringing sound. I then read it was a battery saving feature of the pager. Ok? So to beat it at it's own game I turn the G5 "SCREEN TIMEOUT" time to 05 or 06 seconds. THAT saves the battery throughout the day. One time I achieved over 15 hours using that battery saving, screen off feature. During that time the Docooler never dropped out once until it finally ran out of juice itself after it's time limit of 8 hours. I would try that if you're having dropouts where it's right next to the Pager. Use the Screen timeout feature on the Pager and experiment.

Default Bluetooth gaming headset Yo David!!!!

Hey on the Unification G4/G5 Bluetooth headset issue, in theory wouldnít a Bluetooth gaming headset work because a gaming headset would have 0 setting pertaining to calls? Let me know your thoughts.

Anyone else have a recommendation on a Bluetooth headset or earpiece?

Hmmmm....since it has a 3.5mm jack, Iím wondering if anyone has tried pairing it to this device and then running a Kenwood KES-3S 5W external speaker from the 3.5mm jack? Thoughts?

You can feed any amp you want with it. 5 watts should give you a decent volume.
