Default Bluetooth pairing - figured out

I think I stumbled on to something.

I got 3 different brand BT headsets to connect (BT 2.1, 3.0, and 4.0)

The trick was the BT headset needed to be separated from the G5 by some distance, at least 6 feet or so.

I was able to repeat this on all 3 headsets. When the headsets were in my ear, and I was holding the G5 in my hand, the headset never connected, and the G5 never detected the headset.

When I moved the headset across the room, the G5 detected it and I was able to pair. I did this with all 3 headsets at got the same results (one headset at a time, not all on at the same time).

So it appears the G5 has difficulty pairing to a BT headset that is in very close proximity?? Yeah, I know, that doesn't make a lot of sense.

After adding and deleting the different BT pairings, my G5 went into La-La land and would not turn off. I would turn off the switch, and after several seconds, the G5 would finally shut down. I plugged it in to the computer and reprogrammed it.

At one point, I was able to get my Jabra Classic (BT 4.0) to pair without the annoying beeps every time a talk group was active. I was working perfectly. Have not been able to re-create that, but will keep trying.

Now I can turn off my G5 and my BT headset, and when I turn them back on later, they automatically pair up.

Would be curious to find out if anyone else can get their BT headset to pair up by putting some distance between their G5 and headset. Put the BT headset in pairing mode somewhere across the room, then try to get the G5 to connect.

And to Krokus, thank you for the response. Yes, the headsets were all in the pairing mode (after factory resets), and the G5 earphone mode was enabled and set to search, and the G5 BT was enabled and visible.
